Heesen Yachts has announced that YN 16551, MySky, was delivered to her owners on November 28, 2014, after intensive sea trials in the North Sea.

MySky is a 51 metre (167ft) full displacement long-range motoryacht of approximately 600gt, capable of achieving a range of 5,400 nautical miles at 10 knots. With lines from the drawing board of Frank Laupman, Omega Architects, she features flush-mounted tinted windows that are thermo-bonded to the superstructure create a continuous wall of glass.

The owners appointed world-renowned architect Erick van Egeraat to design the ultra-contemporary, sharp and sophisticated interior. A combination of crisp white leather with dark high-gloss Makassar wood and spectacularly patterned backlit white onyx inlaid within a black marble base contribute to the strongly contrasting monochrome theme. This motif is used throughout the interior producing a highly stylised, luxurious ambience.

MySky accommodates up to 12 guests in five cabins. The spacious full-beam master suite is traditionally located on the main deck forward and boasts a large, elaborate bathroom including a natural stone clad steam shower and a spacious walk-in closet. The remaining four guest cabins are located on the lower deck and furnished to the highest specifications.

A touch-and-go helicopter pad forward of the bridge can transform into another large sun terrace providing secluded lounging even when the yacht is docked stern-to.

Mark Cavendish, sales and marketing director of Heesen Yachts, comments: “MySky is a very important achievement for our shipyard. Working with Erick van Egeraat and his team – who are new to yachting but are a very talented team of architects – pushed Heesen to overcome its boundaries. I believe that MySky will turn heads!”
