Heesen announced the delivery of YN 18250 White, a semi-displacement yacht from the award-winning 5000 Aluminium class. The vessel’s exterior lines were designed by Frank Laupman of Omega Architects, while Cristiano Gatto was responsible for the interior design.
White performed admirably during sea trials in the North Sea, reacting to steering commands instantaneously and showing superb maneuverability even in windy conditions. Propelled by two high power-to-weight ratio MTU 2,880kW engines, the ship exceeded the maximum contractual speed of 23 knots. At a cruising speed of 11 knots, the yacht has a transatlantic range of 3,100 nautical miles.
“White is a beautiful addition to the successful 5000 Aluminium class, which delivers the ultimate combination of performance and efficiency. We are also extremely pleased with the open collaboration and mutual trust we developed with Abberley Yachts, with whom we worked for the first time.” - Heesen’s Board of Directors
