Video: Heesen's new custom 50m yacht Ann G spotted on sea trials

The new Heesen superyacht Ann G has been spotted out on her sea trials. Heesen Yachts launched its full-custom 50 metre yacht, now named Ann G, on June 3. Boat International was one of the first to climb aboard the stunning blue-hulled Ann G during an exclusive unveiling.
The video below shows superyacht Ann G returning from her sea trials. The yacht’s deep blue hull gleams in the sunlight on the bright day, and numerous water bound onlookers – in a dinghies, personal watercraft and day boats – slow down to circle the stunning yacht and get a closer look at her distinctive exterior lines. At the end of the video, Ann G pulls up to dock alongside another recent Heesen launch Azamanta, which is the first of her kind.
The steel-hull, full-displacement yacht Ann G comes in just under the 499GT mark. The owner chose yacht designer Clifford Denn to pen the sweeping exterior lines and general arrangement of Ann G, while Reymond Langton created the modern meets Art Deco interior.
According to Clifford Denn, the experienced owner wanted an exterior with sculptured shapes and was very hands-on in the build.
"Modern deco" is how Jason Macaree of Reymond Langton describes the interior decor on Ann G. "It's an interpretation of Art Deco," says the designer. There are no antiques found on board, however.
The owner of Ann G had a brief for staircases that are as high quality of that of a larger yacht. This translates to wide staircases with comfortable steps that aren't as steep as you'd find on a yacht of similar size, both at the main and exterior staircases.
Coming on board Ann G, a crystal and stainless sculpture central feature catches the eye. Resembling the shape of an iconic Art Deco era building, it stretches from the lower deck all the way up.
Other commanding features on Ann G include a three-tier crystal chandelier over the dining room table, a glass artwork wall by DKT on the Lowe deck, and custom fabric headboards - all complemented by lush walnut and Makassar ebony.
The bathrooms have beautiful titles, with one guest bathroom alone boasting a mosaic wall with more than 20,000 tiles.
The owner's first yacht with Heesen, Ann G will be delivered to her owners mid July.
