Heesen motor yacht Rocket sold
by Malcolm Maclean
The 49.8 metre motor yacht Rocket, listed for sale by Burgess, has been sold in an in-house deal.
Built in aluminium to ABS class by Dutch yard Heesen Yachts and designed by Omega Architects, Rocket was delivered in 2011 and has had only one owner. A bespoke interior by Domus Nova accommodates 12 guests in six cabins comprising a main-deck master suite, three doubles and two twins, all with 32-inch LCD television screens, entertainment centres and en-suite bathroom facilities. There is also accommodation for 10 crew in five cabins.
Burgess adds that this highly customised Heesen superyacht will be entering the charter market for the first time under her new ownership. Currently offering a unique design with bespoke features including a one-of-a-kind staircase, glass doors on the split-level sun deck designed to shield guests from the elements and a sizable Jacuzzi tub forward, there is little doubt she will be a popular charter choice.
Rocket completed her full five-year ABS survey in March/April 2016. Since delivery in June 2011, the hull was repainted under warranty in the winter of 2012/2013 at ITM, Marseille, while the transom door was repainted in April 2016. Twin 3,650hp MTU diesel engines give her a range of 3,200 nautical miles at 12 knots and she is fitted with zero speed stabilisers.
Rocket was asking €24,500,000.
