Heesen’s YN 16551 was launched in January 31th and is now christened My Sky.

My Sky is a long range motor yacht with a full displacement hull. At 10 knots she can sail 5.400 nautic miles without any refuelling stop. Her exterior lines came from the boards of Omega Architects. Erik van Egeraat is responsible for the ultra-contemporary, sharp and sophisticated interior of My Sky. Emphasizing a strong contrast between dark and light throughout the yacht, a homogenous and luxurious atmosphere is created; combining crisp white leather with dark high-gloss Makassar wood and showing beautiful natural stone inlay patterns of spectacularly patterned back-lit white onyx into a black marble base.

My Sky accommodates 12 guests in five cabins. The spacious full beam master suite is located on the main deck forward and boasts a large bathroom including a full natural stone clad steam shower and a spacious walk-in closet. The four guest cabins are located on the lower deck.

Guests will enjoy life at sea in five different areas:

The main saloon aft, with its large circular dining, lounge and bar area with a 6m² LED screen, connects to the main deck aft, which organizes built-in settees and seats around two low coffee tables. The upper deck lounge, with its 270 degrees view and circular seating area, opens onto the aft terrace, accommodating a large dining table ideal for al fresco dining, even under way. Finally, the Sundeck’s large Jacuzzi, surrounded by sun-pads to aft, is perfect for total relaxation.

As for the touch-and-go helicopter pad at the bridge, it turns into a large sun terrace providing secluded lounging even when the boat is docked stern into the marinas.

My Sky is due for delivery to her Owners in November 2014 after intensive sea trials in the North Sea.
