30 April 2021By Malcolm Maclean

The 55 metre in-build Heesen superyacht Project Gemini has been sold with the buyer introduced by Konstatin Kopalov of Arcon Yachts and delivery due in October 2022.

Konstantin Kolpakov of Arcon Yachts comments: “We are delighted to work with Heesen on yet another exciting project. We have been impressed by the flexibility of the shipyard in accommodating the client’s requests, and have enjoyed working with Heesen’s new CCO, Friso Visser, and his experienced team.”

The yacht, which features “muscular exterior lines” penned by Frank Laupman’s Omega Architects, follows the launches of 55 metre Steel class superyachts Solemates and Pollux.

Project Gemini marks the first collaboration between Heesen Luca Dini Design & Architecture, which has penned the interior of the yacht.

Dini's “sophisticated interior décor” will feature a “geometric linear design”  throughout.

Key materials will include Tay wood and natural stone paired with marine leather wall panels and fabric-lined ceilings. The result will be a “zen” atmosphere of “elegant calm”, the yard said.

The 760GT interior boasts over 400 square metres of luxury areas for owners and guests. A total of 12 guests are accommodated in six staterooms, including an 83 square metre full beam owner’s apartment forward of the main deck. Key features include floor to ceiling windows for natural light and far-reaching ocean views, his and hers walk-in wardrobes, a freestanding black bathtub and large shower stall.

The remaining guest accommodation comprises two twins and two doubles on the lower deck and a VIP cabin on the bridge deck.

Elsewhere, Project Gemini features a main saloon with two large bronze-mirrored ceiling panels and large vertical windows. This area also includes a lounge adjacent to the formal dining area for 12.

Toys and tenders will be stored on the foredeck, opening up the lower deck aft to be dedicated to a beach club and wellness area.

Project Gemini will be equipped with plentiful outdoor areas, including a 110 square metre sun deck complete with a Jacuzzi, sunpads and central bar.

Power will come from twin MTU 8V 4000 M63 IMO-Tier III diesel engines for a top speed of 15.5 knots and transatlantic range of 4,500 miles at 13 knots.
