Heesen Yachts Launch 50m "Monaco Wolf"
A wolf is born! as Heesen Yachts announce that YN 16650 was launched on March 28th, 2014. During the private ceremony the owner christened this sexy megayacht "Monaco Wolf", so watch out "Little Red Riding Hood".
Rupert Nelson, a Director at Burgess who introduced the client to Heesen comments: "The Heesen production team were on hand for the launching and it was a privilege to meet them in person. So often we meet the project front men and women, but it is equally important to know the production team - especially where there are shortened delivery schedules. Their support is crucial during the final stages prior to delivery."
The latest MTU engines, 16V 4000 M73L power Monaco Wolf, which results in a top speed of 23kts and a range of over 3,100nm. The highly distinctive flowing lines were designed by Frank Laupman of Omega Architects who has captured the iconic Heesen exterior styling along with its reverse sheer pelican beak bow.
Her elegant interior design has been created by acclaimed Italian designer Francesco Paszkowski who comments: "I am very pleased to have had the chance to work with Heesen again. I like the way they challenge the designers while working on the project and defining its details. The result is a virtuous circle that combines technical and safety aspects with design and style, while keeping Heesen’s outstanding quality standards and our proposals. Team work played a crucial role in bringing this project to fruition."
"Working at Heesen was gratifying because our design proposals were never refused whether related to new materials or custom elements. They perfectly translated every detail of our drawings into reality" adds Margherita Casprini, the architect who worked with Francesco Paszkowski on this project.
One of her main features are the lighting systems throughout which produce custom controlled lighting that can transform the atmosphere from bright party mode through to pools of subtle illumination.
She can accommodate up to twelve guests in six staterooms. The master suite is traditionally located forward on the main deck, where both bedroom and bathroom are full beam with windows running along their entire length. The other guest suites are found on the lower deck and include a full beam VIP, two double and two twin cabins.
She will be tested in the North Sea before being delivered to her owners at the end of May 2014.
