Azamanta has van Oossanen’s Fast Displacement Hull Form (FDHF) engineered together with Heesen’s in-house naval architecture team for efficiency, comfort, and speed. Her exterior lines come from Omega Architects.

The ice-reinforced yacht was made to travel around with 600 tons of comfort, luxury and interior design by Sinot. She is powered by 2 x 1380 kW MTU diesel engines that power her up to 16.9 knots and a possible range of 4,500 nautical miles

Heesen’s Board of Directors comments:

“Azamanta is the third yacht we have delivered this year after 50m Sibelle and 47m Asya. She is a wonderful example of what owners can achieve when they entrust Heesen to build their superyacht: solid Dutch design, engineering and naval architecture wrapped in unique individual design.”
