Seventh Heysea 108 Asteria yacht sold
by Chris Jefferies
The seventh yacht in the Heysea 108 Asteria series has been sold in an in-house deal, the Chinese yard has revealed.
This 33.1 metre semi-displacement yacht, which was started on spec, is due to launch later this year featuring the same Heysea exterior styling as the first hull in the series Contessa (pictured below), which was launched in 2013.
Accommodation is for ten guests split between five suites, including an owner’s cabin, two doubles and two twins. Meanwhile, the crew quarters are large enough for a staff of five people.
The main saloon will feature an open-plan layout, with two large sofas and an armchair surrounding a coffee table in the lounge, while the formal dining area is situated amidships with seating for eight.
Moving forward and the galley is another light and sociable space, with extensive glazing on both sides and overhead, as well as a central island unit.
Exterior relaxation spaces include a foredeck seating area and a sheltered cockpit beneath the extensive superyacht sundeck, which includes an aft tender storage area, accessed via a davit crane.
This all-GRP yacht will feature a beam of 7.1 metres for a total internal volume of 186GT, while the maximum draught will be 1.8 metres.
Due to be built to RINA standards, the seventh Heysea 108 will feature a twin Caterpillar C32 Acert drivetrain for a total output of 3,600hp and a top speed of 23 knots. The total fuel capacity of 15,000 litres should result in an impressive cruising range.
The sale comes in the same month that Heysea delivered the sixth Asteria 108 to a Hong Kong-based client.
