Superyacht Monaco Wolf delivered by Heesen
2014-06-11By Risa Merl

Dutch yacht builder Heesen Yachts has delivered 49.8m superyacht Monaco Wolf.

Heesen launched Monaco Wolf, previously known as hull YN 16650, in March 2014. The yacht was delivered earlier this month after sea trials in the North Sea. Monaco Wolf was sea trialed in moderate weather conditions with a wind force 3/4 in one metre high waves, reports owner's representative Howard Lowe from Royale Oceanic. Monaco Wolf exceeded her contractual maximum speed of 23 knots by 0.4 knots, powered by the latest MTU 16V 4000 M73L engines. The all-aluminium semi-displacement yacht also recorded low noise and vibration levels.

Frank Laupman of Omega Architects is responsible for Monaco Wolf's distinctive exterior lines – her superstructure gives the sense of movement even when at rest. She shares the same naval architecture as previous 50m series Heesen's including Heesen's very zen superyacht Satori (renamed Septimus) and Ventura. Her elegant interior design comes from Francesco Paszkowski.

'From contract signing in early February, to delivery on June 2, in just four short months experienced owner will be enjoying his new yacht! says Rupert Nelson, sales director for Burgess in Monaco, who introduced the owner to the yard. 'This is a fitting testimony to Heesen shipyard's continued commitment to providing pedigree yachts with reduced delivery times that the current market seems addicted to.'

Monaco Wolf is now delivered to her owner with plans to be extensively used this summer in the Mediterranean.
