Heesen 50m HOME luxury yacht launched – ex project NOVA

Heesen launched their first FDHF Fast Displacement Hull Form hybrid motor yacht. Now named M/Y HOME it is clear what the ex project NOVA means for the new proud owner who bought the yacht July 2016 – a HOME away from home.

Heesen HOME is an all-aluminium superyacht incarnating the DNA of Heesen Galactica Star 65m yacht, the first yacht to have the FDHF conceived by Van Ossanen Naval Architects. Different to her larger sister focusing on speed, M/Y HOME puts fuel-efficiency to the fore capable to cruise 9 knots with the generators only. Two forms of power are available with diesel mechanical and diesel electrical systems reaching 3.750 nautical miles at 12 knots. And still Heesen motor yacht HOME tops out at more than 16 knots and this with relatively small engines for a 50m yacht propelling 804hp from their twin MTU 12V 2000 M61 engines. The fuel consumption underway with the main engines can be seen with only 98ltr of fuel at 12 knots and almost half of it cruising 10 knots.

Nothing has been left to chance so Cristiano Gatto has been appointed to create a color palette of white, silver, grey and burgundy tones creating a welcoming and natural ambiance throughout the yacht. Heesen HOME 50m yacht is complete with a spacious sundeck, large bar and spa pool. Alfresco dinging is possible on the upper deck aft and the main deck inside and outside. The main deck conveys a modern and cozy apartment feeling thanks to generous use of glazing with glass-sided verandas. The layout of Heesen HOME offers accommodation for 12 guests including an owner’s stateroom in full-beam size with adjacent office and walk-in wardrobes. Motor yacht HOME features a gym as well as a huge swimming platform available for leisure and sunbathing due to all tender water toys being stored on the foredeck.

We have the feeling that motor yacht HOME built by Heesen is a perfected 50m superyacht of today: weight-optimized, fuel-efficient, silent with transatlantic range, comfortable, with zero-speed stabilizers and transoceanic range, modern and spacious interiors seamlessly connecting with the generous outdoor spaces and a breathtaking eye-catching clean and masculine design.

The delivery of Heesen HOME yacht is scheduled for June, just in time for a Norwegian and Mediterranean summer season before crossing the Atlantic for a Bahamas and Caribbean winter season.
