Heesen yacht Laurentia spotted after sea trials

Secretly launched last month, the 55 metre Heesen superyacht formerly known as Project Alida has been spotted in Hellevoetsluis following her recent sea trials bearing the name Laurentia.

Built on speculation and sold in March, Laurentia features clean, muscular exterior lines by Frank Laupman of Omega Architects. One notable feature of the exterior styling is the original “shark tooth” design detail of the wheelhouse overhang.

Omega has put a priority on indoor-outdoor living and the yacht features glass inserts in the bulwarks and 180-degree floor to ceiling windows in the 102 square metre skylounge so full views can be enjoyed from anywhere on board.

The accommodation stretches out across her 740GT interior, allowing for up to 12 guests in six staterooms. She has a main-deck master suite and five staterooms below decks, including a one full-beam aft VIP, two twin cabins and two double cabins, all of which feature en-suite bathroom facilities. Radyca was brought in to design the interiors, however further details are under wraps for now.

Watch as Laurentia returns from her sea trials

Outside spaces are generous as well, with a 110 square metre sun deck. Laurentia’s tenders will be launched from the foredeck, leaving the aft free for a spacious superyacht beach club.

In terms of naval architecture, she rides on a Fast Displacement Hull Form designed by Van Oossanen, which ensures she will be frugal on fuel and have a range of 4,500 nautical miles at 13 knots, or cruise at 15 knots powered by Twin MTU 8V 4000 M63 diesel engines.

Other superyacht projects currently under development at the Dutch yard include the 55 metre Project Antares, which is due to hit the water next year.
