Second Heysea Asteria 139 yacht under construction

29 January 2018• Written by Chris Jefferies

Chinese yard Heysea Yachts has opened up about its forthcoming Asteria 139 yacht, which is currently under construction ahead of a planned 2019 launch.

Hull number two in this 42.2 metre series of motor yachts, the new arrival was ordered in autumn 2017 by a Chinese client who has also purchased a 14.6 metre and a 17.6 metre model from the yard, both of which will be delivered in May 2018.

The Heysea Asteria 139 yacht has an estimated top speed of 17 knots

Styled inside and out by VYD, the second Heysea Asteria 139 yacht will feature a five-cabin layout, with an aft-facing owner’s suite on the upper deck that boasts a fold-out superyacht terrace.

All the remaining guest cabins are situated on the lower deck, arranged as a full-beam VIP suite, two twins and a double cabin. Meanwhile, the crew quarters allow for a staff of up to seven people, including a bridge deck captain’s cabin.

Al fresco relaxation options are plentiful, with a rectangular spa pool situated on the sundeck, just aft of a large dining table that can host up to 12 guests and a bar area with four stools. Sunbathers can head to the spacious foredeck, while the superyacht beach club allows easy access to the water.

Power will come from a pair of 1,730hp MTU 12V4000 M93L diesel engines for a top speed of 23.5 knots. When trimmed back to ten knots, the Heysea Asteria 139 should have a 1,500 nautical mile range, drawing on a total fuel capacity of 23,000 litres.

Other superyacht projects currently under development at the Chinese yard include the Heysea Asteria 126 - another planned 2019 launch.
