Heesen Yachts announced the launch of YN 17042, on Friday 29th August, at their center in Oss. Throughout a private ceremony the Owner christened his new vessel M/Y Alive.
Loaded with under water foil (technically called Hull Vane®) M/Y Alive represents a dramatic development in performance. The sub-sea wing harnesses waves to produce energy; this with the fast displacement hull and traditional diesel machines create remarkable results. This has shown during separate research conducted by Van Oossanen Naval Architects at two of the world’s respected hydrodynamic laboratories: Wolfson device and Marin.
M/Y Alive is 35 percent better than every other yacht of the woman size and 35 % less energy is needed to create very nearly 16 knots top rate in flat ocean conditions. In seas with 1-2 metre waves, versus hindering her performance, the yacht’s Hull Vane® technology converts the motion and creates 20 percent more thrust and comfort is enhanced due to the fact pitching is paid off by 40 per cent. Like an aircraft, once the yacht moves through water, the wing produces lift. This patented Hull Vane® technology converts this motion into thrust.
M/Y Alive allows the woman Owner to prioritise economy and speed. By having an exemplary selection of 4.000 kilometers, over 750 kilometers come cost-free as a result of her remarkably frugal fuel usage that is 30 percent less than for a conventional displacement yacht.
Perry van Oossanen commentary: “We are happy and proud to see that 1st luxury vessel loaded with Hull Vane® is able to sail the oceans. Heesen Yachts is appearing again to be a shipyard that dares to innovate by purchasing smart technology.”
The bold exterior lines of M/Y Alive are developed by Frank Laupman from Omega Architects, that is also in charge of the woman interior design. Laupman has created a new bow design that combines a diminished hull profile, and fits ocean maintaining behaviour having a relatively short overall size.
M/Y Alive can accommodate around twelve guests within the outside and indoor convivial areas. The 45 square metre open sunlight deck is ideal for leisure throughout the day. The yacht boasts two big suites: the initial typically on the primary deck forward, and also the second one regarding wheelhouse deck. The latter actually spectacular circular space with a centred king size bed, ensuite restroom, dressing space and gymnasium. The central placement associated with the sleep permits stunning, uninterrupted views for the ocean because of floor-to-ceiling cup windows. The 30 square metre aft terrace comes with a break fast dining table and lounge seats, finishing the functionality of the Owner’s deck.
The captain commented on launch of M/Y Alive : “She is an excellent vessel that combines the newest achievements in the world of technology and design. For 3 years we now have worked closely with the team on shipyard to construct a vessel which undoubtedly individual and designed to meet the highest criteria of life style at ocean.”
M/Y Alive will undergo substantial ocean trials inside North water later in autumn and will also be delivered to the woman Owner on October 31, 2014.
