Alex Banning at SuperYachtsMonaco tells me he's signed the 44m motor yacht Hayken for sale.
Built in 2009, Hayken is one of the Heesen 4400 series that has been hugely popular since its launch. Her streamlined exterior and naval architecture are a joint product of Omega Architects and the Heesen Yachts design team.
Hayken has a aluminium hull and superstructure with a beam of 9m and a 2.5m draft. She complies with MCA and ABS standards and has cutting-edge navigation systems controlled from a control centre onboard. Twin MTU 16V 4000 M90 engines give her a speed of 25 knots.
A modern interior was designed by Omega Architects, who have used subtle lighting and fresh neutral tones to create an atmosphere of simple luxury. She has a spacious master cabin, with two further double guest cabins. A pair of twin cabins can each cater for an extra person in Pullman berths, taking the total number of owners/guests from 10 to 12. There is accommodation for nine crew to ensure a relaxed, luxury cruise.
Currently en route to the South of France, Hayken is asking €20.5 million, tax paid.
