Heesen Celebrates Sale of Project Jade: A Fusion of Elegance, Innovation, and Luxury Craftsmanship

Heesen has successfully sold YN 20350, Project Jade, a 50m all-aluminium semi-displacement yacht featuring an exterior design by Omega and an interior by Cristiano Gatto Design Team. With a delivery scheduled for Q2, 2024, Project Jade is the first yacht sold by Heesen in the year and the third collaborative sale with SuperYachtsMonaco in the past decade.

The announcement of the sale brings excitement as Project Jade is a remarkable 50m fast cruiser that redefines luxury cruising standards. Crafted with precision and innovation, the yacht seamlessly blends elegance, innovation, and superior craftsmanship. Designed by Frank Laupman of Omega Architects, Project Jade’s sleek exterior not only enhances its aesthetic appeal but also underscores its exceptional performance on the water, showcasing Heesen Yachts’ renowned attention to detail.

Project Jade offers carefully designed outdoor spaces for optimal enjoyment at sea. The sundeck with a forward whirlpool, the aft terrace on the wheelhouse deck, and the main deck aft terrace provide ample space for relaxation, entertainment, and embracing the beauty of nature. The beach club, with its seamless connection to the swim platform, stands out as a unique area, offering a sheltered yet close-to-the-water experience.

Internally, the yacht features a contemporary interior designed by Cristiano Gatto, embodying a perfect blend of elegance, sophistication, and modern technology. Mirrors, tempered glass, and pops of green from the yacht’s namesake stone, Jade, contribute to the overall aesthetic, creating a conceptual and airy atmosphere.

Accommodating twelve guests in five staterooms, including an owners’ suite on the main deck, Project Jade ensures a comfortable experience. The remaining guest cabins, two doubles and two twins, are on the lower deck. The yacht’s interiors have been flawlessly executed by Heesen Yachts Interiors in Winterswijk, showcasing the shipyard’s dedication to quality and craftsmanship.

Project Jade’s optimized hull design focuses on reduced fuel consumption and a shallow draft, making it ideal for island hopping in the Mediterranean and the Bahamas. With a top speed of 23 knots, the yacht boasts a highly efficient hull design engineered by Heesen’s in-house naval architects, providing a seamless and comfortable experience for those onboard. Additionally, Project Jade proudly complies with IMO III standards, reflecting Heesen’s commitment to safety and environmental responsibility.

The sale of Project Jade marks the third collaboration between Heesen and SuperYachtsMonaco in the past decade. This significant partnership, particularly with Jim Evans, who introduced the client, highlights the strong relationship between Heesen and the brokerage network. Mark Cavendish, Heesen’s chief commercial officer, expressed joy at the client’s trust in the shipyard and emphasized the outstanding quality of Heesen yachts.

As Project Jade approaches launch, Heesen anticipates rigorous testing before delivering the yacht to its new owners in Q2, 2024. Despite challenging times, the sale of Project Jade stands as a positive sign for the industry, showcasing Heesen’s strength as a leader in the luxury yacht market.
