Dutch shipyard Heesen Yachts has today announced the launch of the 49.80m-long, 9.10m-wide superyacht Home, which was previously known as Project Nova.
Engineered by Van Oossanen in collaboration with the yard’s in-house team of naval architects, this all-aluminium Fast Displacement yacht features sleek exterior lines designed by Omega Architects, and a contemporary interior styling created by Cristiano Gatto Design.
“The owner asked us to give the interior a contemporary, almost minimalist design,” comments Italian designer Cristiano Gatto. “A two-tone palette was chosen to give the interiors a bright and relaxing feel. The contrast between the pure white of fabrics, leather and lacquered surfaces and the warm hues of woods, create a sophisticated ambience in all the rooms, bathrooms included. Hints of colour brighten the scheme with deep red or burgundy decorative items, cushions and throws in both the exterior and interior areas to catch the eye and juice things up. The linearity of design is enriched by geometrical patterns, precious materials and meticulously designed details.”
Home offers accommodation for up to 12 guests in six cabins, consisting of a spacious owner’s suite with floor-to-ceiling windows located forward on the main deck, and a full-beam VIP stateroom as well as two double and two twin guest cabins on the lower deck.
On this latter deck are also situated a wellness area with gymnasium and spa, and four en-suite cabins for 8 crew members. The captain’s stateroom is on the upper deck, behind the wheelhouse.
Equipped with twin MTU 12V 2000 M61 600kW diesel engines and two 127kW water-cooled DC electric motors, this hybrid motor yacht has a maximum speed of 16.3 knots and a range of 3,750nm at 12 knots. Either power source can be used independently or simultaneously, increasing fuel efficiency and reducing noise and vibration.
Home is scheduled to be delivered to her owners in June.
