New build 41 metre HeySea motor yacht sold
by Sophia Wilson
HeySea Yachts in China has announced the sale of a 41.15 metre tri-deck superyacht to a client introduced by the Australian brokerage house Ensign Ship Brokers.
The FRP 135 is scheduled for delivery in the third quarter of 2019 and will become the second-largest yacht (by LOA) to be built by the Chinese yard. It features exterior design by Uniellè Yacht Design with HeySea providing the naval architecture. It will have an 8.5 metre beam creating a roomy interior of 500 square meters but will still measure under 500GT.
Interior styling will be provided by VYD's Paolo Dose. One of the yacht’s standout features will be full-height sliding doors on both sides of the main salon and dining room, which will offer panoramic views. Twelve guests will be accommodated in a skylounge master suite, three VIP cabins and two guest cabins.
The new owner will have a considerable influence on her layout and facilities. The Heysea FRP 135 will feature a beach club with a side-loading tender garage in the stern, while a submersible swim platform will offer easy access to the water.
Twin Caterpillar engines will offer a maximum speed of 18 knots and a range of 2,000 nautical miles at its economical speed due to its large fuel capacity and low fuel burn.
This sale adds to a busy order book for the Chinese yard, which already has a 43 metre catamaran under construction, as well as a two 33 metre Asteria 108 yachts scheduled for delivery in 2017 and a 35 metre Heysea 115, scheduled for a 2018 delivery.
