Heesen’s Alida superyacht sold

The Dutch yard finds a new client for the impressive Project Alida

Heesen Yachts has sold the 55m Project Alida.

The client is an experienced boater and was introduced to the shipyard by Barin Cardenas of The New Yachts Company, a boutique firm dedicated to new construction, based in Fort Lauderdale, who worked closely with Thom Conboy of Heesen Yachts USA.

Project Alida is a 55m fast displacement, steel-hulled motoryacht that combines performance and elegance in a design package of 740GT.

Omega Architects created an exterior design that emphasises the indoor-outdoor connection thanks to glass insertions in the bulwarks and the floor-to-ceiling windows in the 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.

The clean and muscular exterior lines without fashion plates and structural support have been cleverly engineered and perfectly executed by Heesen in-house experts, so nothing comes between the guests and the breathtaking views.

Alida can accommodate 12 guests in a full-beam master suite, a VIP cabin, and four double cabins. She has enough power for a top speed of 16 knots, but she cruises comfortably at 12 knots.
