Heesen has launched its latest and largest Fast Displacement Hull Form superyacht – the 55-metre Azamanta.

Built in collaboration with the experienced owner’s family office Bilderlings Wealth, the yacht boasts an ice-strengthened steel hull for global exploration. She benefits from the Fast Displacement Hull form developed by Van Oossanen Naval Architects and Heesen’s in-house team, which promises a top speed of 16.5 knots and a 4,500-mile range at 13 knots. After sea trials, the yacht will be handed over in July.

The exterior lines are by Omega Architects, featuring glass sections in the bulwarks to allow more natural light inside, while the superstructure aft is completely free of pillars, offering uninterrupted views of the sea. A sundeck hot-tub converts to a live music stage, while the owner benefits from a private terrace forward. Also forward is the gull-wing tender garage, leaving space in the lazarette for a beach club and gym. Sinot Exclusive Design has produced the interior, which reflects the owner’s passsion for Art Deco. The yacht sleeps 12 guests.

Heesen delivered the 50-metre FDHF Sibelle earlier this year.
