Join us for an exclusive tour on board YN 20350 Project Jade.
Frank Laupman and Cristiano Gatto, respectively responsible for the exterior and interior design, will give you great insight into this yacht available for delivery in Spring 2024. Our colleague Perry van Hirtum, manager of interior design, will guide you through the clever choices we made to make Project Jade a successful design.
The curvy and sporty exterior lines of the 50-metre fast-cruising series embody Heesen’s DNA, but her beauty lies in the fact that she is the first of her kind below 500 GT to comply with IMO Tier-III regulations.
In true Heesen tradition, the impressive top speed of 23 knots comes from smart naval architecture rather than brute horsepower, with the optimisation of the hull design producing efficiency gains of 12 per cent. This significant result was achieved by streamlining the underwater body, keeping transom depth to a minimum, and creating propeller tunnels to raise the propellers and reduce overall draft to just 2.15 metres.
“This combination of speed and shallow draft makes the design ideal for cruising in shallow coastal waters such as the Bahamas, as well as the crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean,” commented Heesen’s CCO, Friso Visser. “It’s a compelling proposition for many yacht owners.”
Acclaimed Italian designer Cristiano Gatto is responsible for the modern but cosy interior design. Architectural elements have been designed in such way as to offer the new owners an inspiring environment to personalise to their taste and lifestyle.
