55m Heesen motor yacht Quite Essential sold

10 June 2021• Written by Malcolm MacLean

The 55 metre Heesen motor yacht Quite Essential, listed for sale by Antoine Larricq at Fraser, has been sold in-house with the buyer introduced by Alex Krykanyuk.

Built in full aluminium by Heesen Yachtsto ABS class and MCA compliant Quite Essential was launched in March 2011. The following year, she was a finalist in the 2012 World Superyacht Awards. A stylish interior created by Ken Freivokhand Michela Reverberi accommodates up to 12 guests in six cabins, which includes one twin, three doubles, a VIP and a full-beam master suite complete with private balcony and expansive en-suite.

Quite Essential was asking €25,000,000.

Public spaces are delightful, with inviting seating areas and big windows making maximum use of the glazed balconies. Formal dining is on the upper deck and comprises a circular glazed table set within huge curved-glass doors aft. Immediately forward is a semi-circle of sofas positioned to take advantage of the panoramic views or the entertainment centre. Similarly, the sun deck has an equally huge outside dining table, plus an intimate saloon facing forward.

Outside deck areas are sensational, having been planned for maximum enjoyment and comfort, yet with the same expression of spaciousness. The sun deck forward in particular is vast. Many yachts’ main decks aft are virtually unusable in terms of privacy when stern-to in the marina. For Quite Essential, which has a spa pool aft on her main deck, a wide, opaque curtain of water falls from the deck above. This remarkable feature is dense enough to project movies onto, ensures privacy and helps keep the area cool.

Twin 20V 4000 M93L MTU diesel engines allow her to reach a top speed of 24 knots and cruise comfortably at 22 knots.

Quite Essential was asking €25,000,000.
