YN18950 Project Aquamarine5000 Aluminium
Current Build Phase
The systems commissioning is another big moment in the building process. This includes her maiden voyage to the North Sea where we perform extensive sea trials.
Built to impress, designed for living
Possessing a narrow, curved and sporty superstructure, Aquamarine is a 50m fast-cruising aluminium semi-displacement yacht with crisp design language and enviable appeal. A shallow draft of just 2.15m makes her a versatile cruising yacht for both the clearwater bays of the Bahamas and the Mediterranean sea. Equipped with MTU’s new "green ocean" engines with reduced NOx emissions, Aquamarine is the first fast-cruising yacht below 500GT to be IMO Tier III compliant.
The steepness of Aquamarine’s bow is an aesthetic detail that forms an integral part of her crisp design language.
"Aquamarine fits into the Heesen heritage of producing sporty boats, but the whole design language is a little bit more distinct"
Simple in its complexity, Aquamarine’s interior design perfectly matches her contemporary and dynamic exterior line. Large windows result in gorgeous vistas from within, providing an uninterrupted sense of freedom that embodies the spirit of the yacht as a whole. Textures and geometric patterns work in harmony with the calming, colour palette.
"There is a sense of intimacy throughout the yacht, an understated elegance that helps guests to feel comfortable and at ease"
