Delivery: 28 May 2021

Current Build Phase

Joining Hull & Superstructure

After the hull and superstructure are joined together, work in the shed steps up a gear. On the yacht exterior we begin the fairing and elaborate paint process. For the interior we take care of the insulation, piping, cabling and outfitting.

Cutting-edge naval architecture and smart engineering are trademarks of all Heesen yachts, but even more so for YN19550 Project Altea.

At 50 metres in length and below 500GT with a shallow draft, this yacht arguably possesses the most efficient hull form in her class. The FDHF hull design devised

by Dutch hydrodynamicists Van Oossanen has been engineered by Heesen’s in-house naval architects to deliver speed, performance, a high degree of comfort in all sea conditions and unparalleled fuel efficiency throughout the full spectrum of speeds. Built in lightweight aluminium to the highest tolerances by Heesen’s talented welding team, Project Altea displaces approximately 320 tons.

First impressions

Project Altea’s contemporary profile is characterised by a long waterline and floor-to-ceiling windows. A gently reversed stem with spray rails gives her a distinctive look.

Step aboard

Renowned designer Cristiano Gatto has created an intimate and tranquil ambiance to help guests relax after an active day at sea. Bespoke furniture in organic shapes blend seamlessly with refined designer pieces by Minotti, Giorgetti, Flexform and Promemoria.
Warm walnut veneers, soft matt finishes and a unique, custom-designed, hand-tufted carpet by Luxury Pride create a welcoming and relaxed atmosphere on board. Project Altea offers indoor living in full comfort.
