Project Ayla by Dutch yard Heesen sold


Scheduled for delivery in 2018

Dutch yard Heesen has announced the sale of 50m superyacht known as Project Ayla.

The all-aluminium Project Ayla has been sold with Abberley Luxury Yachts introducing the buyer. The new superyacht in part of the 5000 aluminium class. Created to meet the demand for shorter deliveries and to avoid compromising on quality, the 5000 aluminium platform is based on proven design and tested technology – reducing the delivery time by approximately six months. Heesen started the construction of Ayla on speculation, further shortening her delivery time.


Ayla is powered by two 3,860 hp MTU diesel engines, powerful enough for a top speed of 23 knots. Cruising at 11 knots, Ayla has a maximum range of 3,100 nautical miles.

The interior styling is the work of Italian designer Cristiano Gatto. He created a chic minimalist interior, a contemporary interpretation of New Déco. The extensive use of upholstery, both on vertical and horizontal surfaces, allows Ayla’s new owners to choose material and color palettes to create the atmosphere that meets their taste.


M/Y Ayla can accommodate 12 guests in six cabins, including the main-deck owner's suite and full-beam VIP suite.
