See the hull and superstructure joining on Heesen superyacht Alida
by Risa Merl
Progress on 55 metre Heesen superyacht Project Alida is progressing as the hull and superstructure are joined. The hull joining took place at the Dutch builder’s yard in Oss, The Netherlands.
Heesen Yachts hull YN 17755, Project Alida will feature clean, muscular exterior lines by Frank Laupman of Omega Architects. One notable feature of the exterior styling is the original “shark tooth” design detail of the wheelhouse overhang.
Omega has put a priority on indoor-outdoor living on its design for Project Alida, and the yacht features glass inserts in the bulwarks and 180-degree floor to ceiling windows in the 102 square metre skylounge so full views can be enjoyed from anywhere on board.
Accommodations will stretch out over her 740GT interior, accommodating 12 guests in six staterooms. She has a main deck master and five staterooms below decks, including a one full beam aft VIP, two twin cabins and two double cabins, all en suite.
Outside spaces are generous as well, with a 110 square metre sun deck. Project Alida’s tenders will be launched from the foredeck, leaving the aft free for the beach club.
The steel and aluminium Heesen superyacht Project Alida will feature the innovative Fast Displacement Hull Form designed by Van Oossanen Naval Architects. Thanks to her FDHF she will be frugal on fuel and have a range of 4,500 nautical miles at 13 knots, or cruise at 15 knots powered by Twin MTU 8V 4000 M63 diesel engines.
