Heesen Yachts has announced that 50m (163ft) YN 16650 – Project Azuro has been sold, in close collaboration with Burgess, who introduced the client.
With lines designed by Frank Laupman of Omega Architects, she will have four distinct deck areas and a large internal volume. Italian designer Francesco Paszkowski has created her interior using teak, limestone and leather.
Twelve guests are accommodated in six cabins. The master suite is traditionally set forward on the main deck. 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.
The latest MTU engines – 16V 4000 M73L – power Azuro above and below the water, resulting in a top speed of 23 knots and a range of over 3,100 nautical miles.
Azuro is the second of four yachts sold by Burgess in this size class. Rupert Nelson, sales director at Burgess comments, “Heesen were a pleasure to work with during this transaction and extremely co-operative in accommodating the client’s requirements. It is incredibly valuable for the market to have these types of vessels available for sale year round – and with such attractive delivery timelines.”
YN 16650 will be launched in March and tested in the North Sea before being delivered to her owners at the end of May 2014.
