The 55 metre Heesen motor yacht Project Apollo, currently under construction in Oss, has been sold with Marc Borderon of Peter Insull's introducing the buyer.
The yacht began construction on speculation earlier this year and the first renderings were revealed in August 2021. Project Apollo is the seventh unit in shipyard's 55M Steel Class but will be the first in the series to sport a revised design.
The yacht's exterior, penned by Frank Laupman’s Omega Architects, has been described by Heesen as “muscular” with aggressive lines and continuous sheets of tinted glass. The 55M Steel Class series feature a Fast Displacement Hull Form for improved fuel efficiency and stability at sea.
Unlike its sisterships, the sundeck on Project Apollo has been extended and features a bar and Jacuzzi. Meanwhile, the interior concept was created by Luca Dini Design and Architecture and features a number of modifications such as the central atrium on the main deck, which now houses a wider main staircase, and an additional companionway for crew moving from the bridge deck to the sundeck.
The yacht has been designed to accommodate up to 12 guests in a six-cabin configuration, including an owner’s apartment complete with a French balcony and walk-in wardrobes.
Project Apollo is due for delivery in 2023 and will join sisterships Moskito, which was launched in 2021, and Project Gemini, which is under construction and due for delivery in 2022, when she hits the water.
