50m Heesen superyacht Masa delivered

50m Heesen superyacht Masa delivered

Heesen Yachts has delivered Masa, the eighth superyacht in its 5000 Aluminium Class.

The delivery of the 50 metre yacht, which was previously known as Project Aster, followed two days of sea trials in "moderate" conditions in the North Sea.

Heesen revealed the yacht, which was previously known as Project Aster, exceeded the contractual top speed of 23 knots. The yacht hit the water for the first time in April and was christened Masa, meaning "my diamond", at a private naming ceremony. The sale of the 50 metre yacht was announced in December last year, with the buyer introduced by Arcon Yachts.

Masa's exterior design comes courtesy of Frank Laupman's Omega Architects, with key details including a "pelican beak bow" and "sporty mast". Her all-aluminium, semi displacement hull, meanwhile, has been designed and engineered by Heesen's in-house team. The hull of the yacht is decorated in "a classic Awlgrip white colour scheme," the yard said.

The sub-500GT interior has been designed by Cristiano Gatto and is described as “light and airy". The decor takes inspiration from the interiors of other yachts in the 5000 Aluminium Class, with key features including silver leaf ceilings, curved furniture and "brushed spruce", the yard said.

Accommodation is for a total of 12 guests and nine crew. Guest accommodation comprises five lower deck guest suites and a main deck master stateroom located forward.

Power comes from a pair of MTU 16V 4000 diesel engines for a top speed of 23 knots and a cruising range of 3,100 nautical miles at 11 knots.
