Altea, one of the fastest and most economical superyachts in its class

The Dutch shipyard Heesen Yacht presents its latest project, Altea, a 50-metre aluminium superyacht among the fastest in its class.

The Dutch shipyard Heesen Yacht - specializing in the construction of custom yachts - presents the Altea project, a 50 m superyacht made entirely of FDHF (Fast Displacement Hull Form) aluminium under 500 tons. This is the second yacht that the shipyard is building on this fast displacement platform already discovered on the Galactica Super Nova, a 70 m yacht launched in 2016.

Altea is a fast and efficient boat thanks to its fast displacement hull. It offers a reduced draught of 2.15 m. Its exterior design is contemporary, by Frank Laupman of Omega Architects, and has a profile with a long waterline and glazing all around the superstructure. The hull is inverted with the stern lower than the bow, and has a distinctive look with small, well-marked indentations in the hull to prevent spray.

With two MTU 12V 2000 M72 engines of 1,080 kW each, Altea will reach a top speed of 19.5 knots and have a range of 3,750 miles at a cruising speed of 12 knots. These characteristics make the Altea project one of the fastest and most economical motor yachts in its class.

Twelve guests will be able to enjoy 350 m2 of living space and six elegant cabins. Nine crewmembers can be accommodated on board in five cabins reserved for them.

The Italian designer Cristiano Gatto has created a calm and warm interior design that invites you to relax and unwind after a day of fun at sea. The floors and walls are made of wood with carpets for comfort and leather for texture. Silk and velvet are combined with leather elements for contrast.

The Altea project is already available for delivery in spring 2021.
