Hessen Yachts Project Alida


Available for sale and scheduled to be delivered in Spring 2017 the build of Project Alida at Hessen Yachts is progressing well.

Project Alida is a 55m Fast Displacement motoryacht whose exterior lines are by Omega Architects, while her interiors will be by the award-winning Bannenberg & Rowell studio.

In early September the hull and superstructure were joined together at the at the builders facility in Oss.

The Fast Displacement Hull Form (FDHF) format will give the yacht a frugal fuel consumption with a range of 4,500nm at 13 knots, while her cruising speed will be 15 knots at 85% maximum continuous rating.

Two MTU 8V 4000 M63 diesel engines have been installed aboard the well-engineered FDHF devised by van Oossanen and further developed by the builder’s in-house naval architects.

Exterior stylist Frank Laupman has created a design that emphasises the indoor-outdoor connection thanks to numerous glass insertions in the bulwarks and 180-degrees floor to ceiling windows of the 102 sq/m sky lounge. Vertical windows on the main deck together with an original “shark-tooth” design detail on the overhang of the wheelhouse.

The layout of the exterior offers plenty of outdoor space, including a generous 110 sq/m sun deck. With two tenders readily accessible on the fore deck for efficient launching and recovery, the lazarette will be dedicated to a beach club accessible both from the main deck and the fixed swim platform.

The yachts voluminous interior (approximately 740GT) will accommodate 12 guests in 6 staterooms. The master suite as is in most Hessen yachts, located on the main deck forward, while the other 5 guest cabins are on the lower deck: one full beam VIP aft, two twin cabins amid ship and two double cabins forward all with ensuite bathrooms.
