    Heesen Yachts sell Project Azuro, delivery in May

    Heesen Yachts has announced that YN 16650 – Project 'Azuro' has been sold, in close collaboration with Burgess, who introduced the client. Azuro’s highly distinctive flowing lines were designed by Frank Laupman of Omega Architects and embody the Heesen family look and feel with its iconic reverse sheer ‘pelican beak’ bow. The latest MTU engines - 16V 4000 M73L - power Azuro’s streamlined shape above and below the water resulting in a top speed of 23-knots and a range of over 3,100 nautical miles.

    Azuro has the largest volume of any yacht of her length. She combines speed and space with uncompromised luxury. Acclaimed Italian designer Francesco Paszkowski created her interior design, adopting a form of natural minimalism that results in a beautifully pure concept. Just three materials are used for all interior surfaces: teak, limestone and leather. Twelve guests are accommodated in six cabins. The master suite is traditionally set forward on the main deck. Both bedroom and bathroom are full-beam with windows running along their entire length. The other guest suites are found on the lower deck and include a full-beam VIP, two double and two twin cabins.

    In the main saloon, silk-surfaced limestone adorns the sideboards; floorboards are of unpolished teak and the ceiling is covered with pale tan leather. A remotely controlled set of louvred blinds enables the dining area to be screened off from the lounge or opened up to reveal the full space. Guests will enjoy life at sea in four distinct deck areas that provide a perfect space for every occasion. The 70 square meter sun deck is probably the largest on a yacht of this size, and for privacy in port, there is a lounging area secluded on the foredeck. The shaded dining area on the upper deck and the main deck terrace combines with the saloon to create a further 25 square meters of entertaining space. Project Azuro will be launched in March and tested in the North Sea before being delivered to her Owners at the end of May 2014.
