Heesen Yachts builds the new 50m project ALTEA on the proven platform 5000 Aluminum with Fast Displacement Hull Form.

Project ALTEA based on the proven platform NOVA PLUS – a faster vessel with a traditional MTU engine configuration than NOVA with hybrid propulsion. It is a sister ship to ERICA. The exterior design comes from long-term partners Omega Architects, while Cristiano Gatto drew the interior design. As many yachts by Heesen, also ALTEA has the patented Fast Displacement Hull Form (FDHF) by Van Oossanen Naval Architects.

Her twin MTU 12V 2000 M72 engines have a total power of 2.160 hp to reach a maximum speed of 19.5 knots. At the cruising speed of 12 knots, ALTEA has a transatlantic range of 3,750 nautical miles.

The yacht is an on-spec project and for sale. Delivery is scheduled for spring 2021. Potential clients can visit Heesen Interiors in Winterswijk, The Netherlands, to inspect the interior mock-up of the project.
