Heesen Yachts sell 51m Project Paloma
By Rebecca Dark
Heesen Yachts has announced the sale of their 51m full displacement motoryacht, Project Paloma (YN 16551).
Sold to an owner that is new to the industry, the motoryacht will have an aluminium superstructure and steel round-bilge hull, with her exterior lines designed by Frank Laupman from Omega Architects. Omega will also be designing the interior of Project Paloma. Van Oossanen and Heesen Yachts are the naval architects of the vessel, which is an evolution of Heesen's 50m displacement model.
"My design for this Heesen project is the logical development in design language following on from the lines of 'Man of Steel' and 'SKY',” commented Laupman. “We allocated a considerable amount of space to the exterior decks: the plan is strongly rational with an interesting inside-outside relationship."
Already being built and due for delivery in 2014, Project Paloma can accommodate 12 guests in five cabins: the owner’s suite on the main deck forward and two twin and double cabins on the lower deck.
Project Paloma's specifications:
Naval architecture: Van Oossanen/Heesen Yachts
Exterior styling: Omega Architects
Interiors designer: Omega Architects
Engines: 2 x MTU 12V 4000
Maximum speed: 15.6 knots
Classification: Lloyd’s + 100A1 SSC Yacht G6 (+) LMC LY2
