Heesen's 50-metre Steel Class Cinderella Noel IV is currently undergoing sea trials.

Onboard features include reinforced insulation for operating in high northern fjords and waterways, heated floors, winter tents and mosquito nets.

With an exterior penned by Clifford Denn Yachts, Cinderella Noel IV 's extensive customisation includes a hybrid propulsion system (a first-time installation for Heesen) alongside a second steering position on the flybridge and a foldable mast for navigating bridge passages. Leisure highlights include a glass-bottomed pool and firepit.

Conceived for extended stays with his and hers working spaces, the owners worked closely with Luca Dini Design and Architecture and Heesen's engineering team on the yacht's layout. Interior imagery has not been released, but the décor has been described as "Scandinavian chic" by the shipyard, designed largely for ease of maintenance. Details include high-gloss Indian rosewood, dark oak flooring and loose furniture from Cassina, Paola Lenti and Toso.

Cinderella Noel IV is powered by twin MTU 8V4000 M63 (IMO Tier III) engines, paired with with 135kW Danfoss electric motors on the same propeller shaft. This allows the yacht to operate in one of three modes – silent, economy and cruising. Silent mode is effective at up to 8.5 knots.

"Cinderella Noel IV is imbued in every detail with the owners' passion and experience. The energy they have put into creating a yacht that perfectly suits their lifestyle is impressive," explained Mark Cavendish, Heesen's CCO.

The yacht was originally known as Project Oslo24

He added: "The design and build of this 'Smart Custom' yacht has been a wonderful experience for us all at the shipyard, building a yacht that will create lasting memories for this unique family. We are truly honoured they entrusted us with such a special project."

The news follows Project Setteesettanta's construction milestone, which is set to become the "crown jewel in Heesen's fleet".
