Heesen Yachts launched the YN 17650 Akoya, a 50m semi-displacement yacht during a private ceremony on Friday April 1, 2016.
YN Akoya is the fifth in the award-winning 50m class with streamlined exterior styling by Omega Architects. The ‘shark grey’ hull colour adds grace to the elegant exterior lines.
Four clearly defined deck areas provide space for every occasion: a foredeck for secluded relaxation, a vast 70-sqm sundeck, shaded dining on the upper deck aft terrace, and a multifunctional main deck aft.
Space has been optimised throughout and YN 17650 has the highest possible internal volume under the 500GT threshold. 12 guests are accommodated in 6 staterooms. The master suite is located on the main deck, while the remaining guest cabins are on the lower deck and include a full-beam VIP, two twins (that can transform into doubles) and two doubles, all with ensuite bathrooms.
YN 17650 will undergo intensive sea trials in the North Sea where she is expected to reach a top speed of 23 knots. She will be delivered to her owner in June 2016.
