Impeccable Dutch craftsmanship meets slick and modern interiors onboard the extraordinary Heesen Yachts 167.4ft (51m) Irisha, which was launched in 2018. The sleek silhouette was inspired by a modern jet fighter aircraft, while the very latest technology allows for a maximum speed of 25 knots and a range of 2425 nautical miles cruising at 15 knots – meaning Irisha is an ideal choice for style-conscious guests looking to cover several chic Mediterranean hotspots like Cannes, Nice, and Monaco during their charter experience.


Irisha’s owners love to enjoy long and leisurely lunches surrounded by family and friends, so Harrison Eidsgaard paid particular attention to creating stunning dining and entertaining areas onboard. The main seating area can be found on the aft deck which is enclosed with sliding glass panels to create an extraordinary winter garden, which can be enjoyed both on hot and much cooler days. This is the ideal spot to curl up with a good book or simply enjoy watching the world go by out of the floor-to-ceiling windows that flood the space with brilliant natural light.

Her smart navy hull is complemented by chic yet relaxed deck spaces that invite guests to linger and luxuriate on the ample sun loungers or the open-air jacuzzi. There’s also a charming bar on the sun deck which is equipped with rotating bar stools so guests can turn to take in the sights or to admire the setting sun while they enjoy a glass of Champagne or a bespoke cocktail whipped up by the talented crew. When it comes to overwater fun, Irisha doesn’t disappoint in the slightest. She’s equipped with a number of inflatable and motorized toys, highlighted by a 3-person Waverunner and powerful 6m tender.


Irisha is renowned for its fabulous exterior spaces that incorporate cutting-edge technology. This results in a number of outdoor lounge and dining areas that were designed with entertaining in mind. The main saloon and dining area are a continuous open-plan space and feature a large dining table made by Heesen’s own joinery team which can extend to seat a total of 22 guests if you feel like hosting a large gathering.

There’s also a remarkably well-equipped galley and a top chef who is always on hand to whip up delicious meals or even just a simple snack from fresh Mediterranean ingredients. If you and your guests want some after-dinner entertainment, you can retreat to the sky lounge movie theater and catch up on the latest releases. This more informal and intimate lounge space boasts a bar with three fixed bar stools, a window seat, plenty of comfortable sofas, and a signature coffee table which has been crafted from an enormous tree trunk. A sky lounge with a cinema screen and wet bar is the ultimate onboard chill-out zone. Wind down with a massage in the beach club’s wellness area – the perfect way to relax at the end of the day.


Irisha is very easy on the eye thanks to top-class design work by Harrison Eidsgaard who was responsible for both her exterior and interior styling. The striking open-plan interior is spacious enough for large groups, boasting a neutral color palette that blends well with the ultra-modern design. The spaces are flooded with natural light thanks to panoramic windows, while the flexible layout was designed to blur the lines between the interior and exterior living spaces.


The attention to detail continues in the five guest cabins which are configured as a spacious master suite, two doubles and two twin cabins which have the option to convert to doubles or a large VIP suite. In total Irisha can receive up to 10 overnight guests in complete comfort. Her master suite is equipped with a private office, a balcony and a stunning ensuite bathroom with rain showers and luxurious marble stonework, while the remaining cabins each feature a unique eye-catching stone decoration on the wall.

Irisha is available to charter via Superyachts Monaco from US$309,000 (€280,000) per week plus expenses.
