Project Castor, the 55 metre motor yacht currently being completed by Dutch yard Heesen, has been sold with the buyer introduced by Rupert Connor at Luxury Yacht Group.

The fourth hull in the yard’s 55 metre Steel Class series, Project Castor is set to be delivered to her new owner in May 2020. Designed by Omega Architects, key exterior features include vertical floor to ceiling windows in the forward section of the main deck, as well as full height windows in the main saloon and skylounge. Another notable feature is the “shark tooth” design detail of the wheelhouse overhang.

The asking price of Project Castor has been withheld.

The 760GT yacht also features a fast displacement hull designed by Van Oossanen Naval Architects. Project Castor sports a number of alterations to the first three 55 metre Steel Class yachts. These include a full beam sky lounge, a larger master stateroom of 73 square metres and larger lower deck suites, sleeping 12 guests in all.

Interior design has been undertaken by Bannenberg & Rowell, the eighth collaboration between the design studio and Dutch yard. Key interior materials include signature woods and natural stones with a warm colour palette. Her top speed will be 15.5 knots with her power coming from two MTU 8V4000M63 diesel engines.
