Project Ventura sold by Heesen Yachts

Project Ventura sold by Heesen Yachts

Heesen Yachts continues its run of success with the sale of Project Ventura (YN 16050) the third in the new 50m all-aluminium class and the fourth contract signed in 2011.

With a Gross Tonnage of 499GT and a top speed of 23 knots Project Ventura is among the world’s fastest semi-displacement 50 metre yachts; her clean lines were designed by Frank Laupman from Omega Architects.

In consultation with Van Oossanen Associates, Heesen’s in-house naval architects created a sophisticated and highly efficient hard-chine hull. When combined with Heesen’s acknowledged weight reduction expertise and a pair of high power-to-weight ratio MTU 2.720kW engines, Project Ventura is able to deliver her excellent top speed as well as a very economical fuel burn and a particularly long range of 3,200 nautical miles at 12 knots.

Italian designer Francesco Paszkowski and the owner are responsible for the interiors. The design is based on just two woods of contrasting colour and texture: richly patterned polished ebony for parquet floors and furniture surfaces, and whitened oak for the panelling. Project Ventura sleeps twelve guests in six cabins (with an additional cabin for the owners’ private staff.) There are in fact two master staterooms: the first with a spectacular circular bedroom leading directly outside on the upper deck, ensuite with large walk-in wardrobes; the other full-beam on the main deck - this large, bright master bedroom is complemented by a full-beam ensuite bathroom and a separate study.

A full-beam VIP suite, two double and one twin guest cabins are situated on the lower deck together with the twin staff cabin.

The delivery of YN 16050, Project Ventura, is scheduled for Spring 2013 after intensive sea trials in the North Sea.
