Heesen is known for their magnificent yachts which also deliver impressive performance, and the new Aura is no exception. As a boutique-style shipyard that only builds boats for high-end customers, Heesen has only launched five yachts this year, with Aura being the last. Each project is treated with maximum care and attention to detail.
The new 164-foot (50-meter) project was recently filled with water at the builder’s facilities in Oss. It is there that it will be equipped with its main systems, before undergoing demanding tests in the North Sea.
This luxury yacht has been designed to offer as much volume as possible, while remaining in the under 500 GT category. Its sleek but dynamic silhouette is due to the talent of British designer Clifford Denn, who drew inspiration from classic automotive design. Her efficient steel hull with a bulbous bow allows her to glide over the water and tackle even more difficult sea conditions.
The spacious sun terrace welcomes guests with a Jacuzzi, lounge chairs and generous areas for al fresco dining. From the main deck, they can easily access the folding swim platform, thanks to the stairs on both sides. Many tenders and toys wait patiently on the foredeck for adrenaline-pumping aquatic fun.
True to its name, this magnificent yacht unveils a peaceful and minimalist interior dominated by white and taupe, with accents of green and blue. The British studio Reymond Langton Design has imagined a “bright comfort center, ”Using neutral tones, natural materials and strategic ambient lighting. There is enough room for ten guests in Aura’s five lavish cabins.
Built on the renowned Heesen Platform, Aura offers an impressive 3,800 nautical mile (4,372 miles / 7,000 km) range and can reach a top speed of 15 knots (17 mph / 27.7 km / h) .
The magnificent Aura will be delivered to her proud owner in April 2022. The price has not been disclosed, but one can only imagine that it lives up to the feeling of freedom and relaxation that this luxury yacht offers. .
