Heesen’s Project Aura due to be launched August
Heesen says Project Aura is due to be launched in August, and following rigorous testing in the North Sea will be available for delivery in October 2021.
Her interior has been designed by British studio Reymond Langton Design. Rather fabulously the company’s statement says that, alongside the five staterooms, “billowing clouds of white and taupe lend an ethereal elegance, with sharply accented highlights in sea green and deep blue.”
Heesen describes Aura as a true bluewater motor yacht ideal for extended cruising. The yacht has a steel displacement hull designed by Heesen’s in-house naval architects and engineers, with a drag-cheating bulbous bow designed to allow easy gliding. Two MTU 8V4000 M63 engines give her a top speed of 15 knots, and a range of 3,800 nautical miles at her cruising speed of 13 knots.
