HY17755-0736-sbHeesen Yachts has joined hull and superstructure of YN 17755 Project Alida. The operation took place on Saturday September 12, 2015 at its facility in Oss.

Project Alida is a 55m Fast Displacement motoryacht exterior lines by Omega Architects. Her interiors will be by Bannenberg & Rowell studio.

Frank Laupman has created an exterior design that emphasises the indoor-outdoor connection thanks to numerous glass insertions in the bulwarks and 180-degrees floor to ceiling windows of the 102 sq m sky lounge.

Vertical windows on the main deck together with an original “shark-tooth” design detail on the overhang of the wheelhouse provide Project Alida with a bold and distinctive character that can already be appreciated at this early stage of her construction.

Omega’s clean design without fashion plates and supports has been engineered and executed by Heesen Yachts in-house experts.

Thanks to the Fast Displacement Hull Form (FDHF) technology, Project Alida will have frugal fuel consumption. Two MTU 8V 4000 M63 diesel engines have been installed.

The FDHF devised by van Oossanen has been further developed by Heesen Yachts in-house naval architects.

Project Alida will have a range of 4,500nm at 13ks and cruising speed will be 15ks at 85% maximum continuous rating.

Project Alida is designed to approximately 740gt) and will accommodate 12 guests in six staterooms.

The master suite is traditionally located on the main deck forward, while the other five guest cabins are on the lower deck: one full beam VIP aft, two twin cabins amid ship and two double cabins forward all with en-suite bathrooms.

The layout of Project Alida offers plenty of outdoor space, including a generous 110sq m sun deck. With two tenders readily accessible on the fore deck for efficient launching and recovery, the lazarette will be dedicated to a beach club accessible both from the main deck and the fixed swim platform.

Project Alida is available for sale and is scheduled to be delivered in Spring 2017 after intensive sea trials in the North Sea.
