Hull & Superstructure Second Heesen 5000 Class United

yn15850-web2Heesen Yachts has announced the joining of the superstructure to the hull of construction number 15850, the second yacht in the new 5000 class. This 50m semi-displacement motor yacht is one of the few vessels of this length available with a gross tonnage of below 500 GT.



heesen_50m-semi-displacementThanks to her sleek, hard-chine hull shape, whose lines were conceived by Heesen’s in-house naval architects, and her pair of MTU 16V 4000 M90 diesels, she will reach the remarkable maximum speed of 23 Knots. Her exterior design, featuring a pelican-beak bow and negative sheer -recognizable features of Heesen-built motor yachts – is the result of the collaboration between Heesen’s in-house Design and Development team and Frank Laupman of Omega Architects.
