Heesen Yachts delivers 51m M/Y Irisha


Full custom yacht

Dutch yard Heesen has delivered the first full custom yacht since Galactica Super Nova.

The 51m vessel was named Irisha and has recently completed extensive sea trials in the North Sea. The yacht was sold by SuperYachtsMonaco.


Irisha’s exterior lines and interior are by Harrison Eidsgaard. This full-custom yacht incorporates elements of Heesen’s DNA: she is a full-aluminium, semi-displacement motor yacht below the 500GT threshold that allows for fast cruising.


The owner's brief called for a yacht with unique looks.

The Harrison Eidsgaard team devised innovative exterior lines enhanced by the extensive use of double curved glazed glass that gives the yacht the appearance of a fighter jet. The unique color scheme enriches the beauty of the profile. The top is Snow White, the main deck is Midnight Blue by Awlgrip, and the hull is metallic Pacific Blue custom paint by Alexseal. In sunlight, the hull color changes from metallic blue to dark olive-green hues.


Irisha’s profile looks as cool at night as in the daylight. Concealed LED strips trace the lines of her profile, flooding the glass surfaces with light.

The interior is inviting and relaxing with a neutral palette of beige, grey and blue. She can accommodate ten guests in five staterooms and a crew of nine people.


Power is provided by two MTU 16V4000 M93 diesel engines, each delivering 4.613 hp. Irisha exceeded expectations during the sea trials by achieving a top speed of 26.1 knots and a transatlantic range of over 3,000 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 11 knots.

M/Y Irisha is now available for charter via SuperYachtsMonaco.
