The gorgeous Asya Superyacht from Heesen Is a Treat for our Eyes
Another blissful example of Heesen Yachts’ excellent styling and unique ideas is Asya, a superb vessel completed only a year ago, that’s meant to conquer the seven seas in complete luxury and comfort. The renowned Dutch shipyard has worked alongside Frank Laupman of Omega Architects to come up with this sleek exterior design, which brings many fresh ideas to the table.
Asya features a custom layout and interior design, and it’s the second vessel from Heesen’s 47-meter series that has been meticulously modified to comply with the latest LY3 rules and the Maritime Labour Convention. Originally called Project He, the steel-hulled yacht before you shows off a modern interior inspired by the stripped-back aesthetic of Dieter Rams, Frank Lloyd Wright and Tadao Ando.
This stunning superyacht benefits from a delicate color palette, spanning from white through light beige and brown, a theme that’s enhanced by mid-gloss white lacquered surfaces and bronze details. The silver-grey, oiled oak used on all decks provides a warm feeling and offers a unique vibe that seems to make its way onto all areas of the yacht.
The yacht’s main saloon shows off three divided living areas, including a library-like space, coloured-glass doors and polished stainless-steel details. The seating area has been furnished with two Maxalto Simplex sofas by B&B Italia, while comfy Aster X armchairs by Poltrona Frau and a pair of padded chaises longues by bespoke Italian manufacturer Meridiani allow guests to feel spoiled as well.
There’s also a dining table, with a shiny Makassar ebony top, that will provide up to 12 people with an incredible dining experience. Asya also features a panoramic spa pool, a fully equipped bar, several sunbeds and a lovely C-shaped sofa abaft, that will surely keep its owners and their lucky guests happy.
A true marvel of engineering, this superyacht is powered by twin MTU 8V 4000 M63 engines, that could take it to a top speed of 15 knots at half load, while offering the possibility to travel up to 4,000 nautical miles everywhere around the world.
