A curvy, sporty exterior design

At 50 metres and below 500 GT, Jade is an all-aluminium, fast-cruising yacht powered by green ocean engines. Heesen’s 50-metre fast-cruising class is the first of its kind below 500 GT to comply with IMO Tier-III regulations. A curvy, sporty exterior design by Omega Architects complements Jade’s performance and crisp design features.

Heesen’s optimised, low-drag hull design with a reduced transom depth allows for a shallow shaft angle. This makes Jade comfortable in rough seas yet perfect for cruising shallow waters. The ultra-efficient hull shape delivers on engineering and adventure, meaning Jade is ideal for both island hopping and longer passages.

First impressions

Jade is the third sister in this impressive class. The sun deck is Laupman’s favourite place on board. Its elevated aft deck holds a large whirlpool with sunpads, which is accessed via three steps up. It’s this subtle
design feature that allows for a full height multi-purpose tender garage-cum-luxury beach club on the lower deck, with plenty of head room. Another key exterior feature is the downward pointing bow. This provides a good line of sight to the water from the bridge, and helps to accentuate Jade’s long, sleek profile.

“The whole superstructure is slightly curved giving her a more elegant aft end, while the use of wrap around glass and loose exterior furniture mean deck spaces have generous seating, but remain airy, light and well detailed,” explains Laupman.

Step aboard

Jade is a true siren of the seas. Her interior, imagined by Cristiano Gatto, is a lagoon of creativity. Cool and elegant in its choice of colours, it mixes materials and textured finishes to reflect natural light. Inviting and warm with chic undertones, the lively canvas is a creative starting point, ready to receive an owner’s personalised touch.

Natural mirror and tempered glass take inspiration from the seabed. The yacht’s namesake stone – jade – inspires bold pops of green. Shaded grey leather, white lasa gold-veined marble and cool stainless steel deliver earthy tones. Jade is a blend of contemporary Italian flair and Heesen’s sporty DNA.
