Heesen Yachts recently announced that it delivered its 55-meter motor yacht, Azamanta, to her owner on July 10, 2015. The company conducted sea trials for Azamanta in the North Sea on June 17 and 18. Having passed intensive tests, she is ready to explore the world with her owner. The tests show that Azamanta can reach a top speed of 16.9 knots (0.4 knots higher than the contractual speed). She can travel at 15 knots with as little as 1650kW of power, qualifying her as an extremely efficient vessel.
Azamanta embodies several new achievements for Heesen Yachts. She is one of the company's first yachts to include vertical windows that let more light reach interior areas. Heesen included a shark tooth exterior design that gives Azamanta a unique personality. Currently, she is the world's only fast displacement, steel-hulled yacht exceeding 50 meters in length.
The owner, an experienced traveler who may want to visit regions near the arctic, gets to take advantage of the yacht's ice-reinforced steel hull. This will help the owner and his guests stay safe and warm as they travel northern waters.
Azamanta is the third yacht delivered by Heesen this year. She follows 47-meter Asya and 50-meter Sibelle. As the year continues, we'll report on other yachts Heesen is developing for its clients. So far, the company has truly proven itself as one of the world's best yacht builders.
