Heesen’s latest superyacht, the 51-metre MySky, was handed over to her owners in late November last year after intensive sea trials in the North Sea. The steel-and-aluminium displacement yacht first hit the water last spring.
The yacht’s exterior lines are from Frank Laupman of Omega Architects, and the most eye-catching feature is the ‘wall of glass’ created by flush-mounted tinted windows thermo-bonded to the superstructure.
World-renowned architect Erick van Egeraat – for whom this is a first superyacht – was chosen by the owners to create an ultra-contemporary and sophisticated interior. A combination of crisp white leather with dark high-gloss makassar and spectacularly patterned backlit white onyx inlaid within a black marble base (above) contribute to the strongly contrasting monochrome theme used throughout the interior.
The main salon (above) features built-in settees and seats around two low coffee tables with a large circular dining table.
The main salon’s lounge and bar area (above) features a gigantic LED screen that connects with the main deck aft.
The upper deck lounge (above) boasts 270˚ views and a rotating white leather seating area. Outside, the aft terrace is just the spot for entertainment and alfresco dining under the stars. On the sundeck, there’s a fully equipped gymnasium to satisfy the owner’s requirement for sports and physical training programmes.
MySky accommodates up to 12 guests in five staterooms. The full-beam master suite is located on the main deck and boasts a large, elaborate bathroom that includes a natural stone-clad steam shower and a spacious walk-in closet.
The area forward of the bridge serves as a touch-and-go helipad that transforms into a sun terrace.
“MySky is a very important achievement for our shipyard. Working with Erick van Egeraat and his team – who are new to yachting but are a very talented team of architects – pushed Heesen to overcome its boundaries. I believe that MySky will turn heads!” says Mark Cavendish, sales and marketing director of Heesen Yachts.
