The yacht is the second in the same series to be sold in six weeks.

Hot on the heels of the sale of Project Alida, which was announced at the end of March, is the sale of the in-build Project Antares. The 55-metre Fast Displacement Hull Form superyacht is the third in the series, which started with the striking Azamanta.

Exterior design is by Omega Architects with interior styling by Francesco Paszkowski. “The style we have created in collaboration with Margherita Casprini for this new Heesen couples the aesthetics of the most contemporary Italian design with the ingenious engineering typical of this Dutch shipyard, with whom we have been collaborating with great satisfaction for the past few years,” says Francesco Paszkowski. “We played with chiaroscuro, light and shade, choosing fabrics and veneers that create a warm and cosy atmosphere. The design is characterised by geometric elements that are consistently repeated throughout the whole interior and highlight the coherence of the design philosophy, while the combination of wood and reflective elements gives a sense of openness.”

Accommodation is for 12 guests across six staterooms, which include an 80-square-metre master suite forward on the main deck and a full beam VIP cabin on the lower deck, along with two twins and two doubles, also on the lower deck. There is a beach club on the lower deck and plenty of exterior entertainment spaces.

The new owner is an experienced superyacht owner from America and was introduced by the Dutch yard’s US director of sales, Thom Conboy.

The FDHF is designed to offer comfort and economy as well as speed, and the yacht is expected to be around 740 gross tonnes. The hull and superstructure of Project Antares will soon be joined, and she is due for delivery in November 2018.
