The Dutch yard Heesen Yachts has announced the sale of the 50m Project Boreas.
It's the fifth sale this year, the yacht being ordered by an experienced client. He approached the shipyard directly and worked closely with the shipyard’s engineers to customize his new yacht that was already one year into construction.
Project Boreas is a full-aluminium motoryacht built on the design and engineering platform of Nova Plus, offering efficiency and performance thanks to its fast displacement hull form with a draft of just 2.15m, all wrapped up in a contemporary exterior design by Omega Architects.
The owner requester some modifications. The addition of a helm station on the fly bridge, for example, will allow the owner to pilot the boat himself. He also requested smaller superstructure overhangs above the aft terraces to allow more natural light to flow into the interior, the sky lounge with openable windows to create an indoor-outdoor space and a personalized layout on the lower deck that suits his family’s lifestyle and accommodation needs.
The interiors are styled by Mark Whiteley Design. The vessel can accommodate 12 guests in six staterooms.
Power is provided by two MTU 12V 2000 M72 diesel engines that propel the yacht to a top speed of 20 knots.
