The 50-metre semi-displacement motor yacht from the 5000 Aluminium Class exceeded speed expectations at sea trials

Heesen is delighted to announce the delivery of YN 18750 Masa, the latest 50m semi-displacement motor yacht in the 5000 Aluminium Class. During the two days of tests in moderate sea conditions in the North Sea, Masa largely exceeded the contractual speed of 23 knots.

Cristiano Gatto created a light and airy interior design, which pays tribute to the fore sisters in the 5000 Aluminium Class, reinterpreting some of their most striking design elements, such as the silver leaf ceilings, the curved pieces of furniture and the use of brushed spruce. Masa accommodates twelve guests in six cabins. The owner’s stateroom is located on the main deck forward, while the remaining guests are accommodated on the lower deck in a full beam VIP, two doubles and two twins, all with ensuite bathrooms.

Frank Laupman of Omega Architects designed the exterior lines of the 5000 Aluminium Class. Classic, timeless and streamlined contours evoke speed, giving the yachts in this class a distinguishing aesthetic and making them recognisable from afar. Other characteristic design elements include the mast as well as the pelican beak bow with negative sheer. With a classic Awlgrip white colour scheme, Masa is set to shine, as her name suggests.
