Heesen Yachts has sold its Project Apollo. The 55-metre superyacht boasts a fuel-efficient Fast Displacement Hull design and was available on a shortened delivery schedule thanks to the yacht builder’s on-spec build programme.
Apollo is the fifth yacht sold this year by Heesen, totalling 260 linear metres and 3017 GT. ‘2021 has been a very successful year for Heesen. Our semi-custom yachts, based on proven platforms and available on short delivery schedules, are making waves in both the East and the West,’ comments Friso Visser, Heesen CCO.
Project Apollo is a twin propeller steel motoryacht of 760 GT with an aluminium superstructure. Its maximum speed at half load is 15.5 knots. Its range is 4500 nautical miles at 13 knots.
Marc Borderon of Peter Insull introduced the experienced client. Apollo features exterior lines restyled by Omega Architects. Lower aft bulwarks and railings and larger expanses of floor-to-ceiling glass expand the view. Continuous sheets of tinted glass have replaced the iconic vertical windows on the main deck. The horizontal lines stretch the optical length of the yacht and reduce the apparent height. A French balcony adds a whole new dimension to the owner’s apartment.
Luca Dini Design & Architecture has created a solid and sculptural interior design for Apollo, featuring light and warm tones. Twelve guests can be accommodated in six staterooms, all with private en-suite bathrooms.
Project Apollo is due for delivery in autumn 2023.
