M/Y ASYA 47m Super Yacht by Heesen Yachts
Built in steel and aluminium by Heesen, Asya was launched in 2015 as the second hull in the Dutch yard’s restyled 47 metre full displacement class, with exterior design by Frank Laupman of Omega Architects. She sports a Heesen hallmark “pelican” bow with traditional lines and continuous glass windows.
Asya can sleep up to 12 guests in five cabins, comprised of a full-beam owner’s suite, two doubles and two twin cabins each with an additional Pullman berth. Heesen said the guiding principle of the yacht’s interior was simplicity, which was penned by London-based and award-winning studio Bannenberg & Rowell. Her décor features fresh gloss white lacquer paired with bleached wenge and maccassar ebony.
The main saloon features a large lounge with sofas and coffee tables to port and starboard, a formal dining table forward and houses a library-like space framed by book niches, some of which are protected by coloured-glass doors and underlined by polished stainless-steel details. Above, the upper saloon provides a more informal setting for guests to kick back with two semi-circular sofas and a round games table. Come evening, the room can be turned into a cinema complete with a bar and wine room concealed behind a door.
The restyling of the 47 metre platform included a significant change to the housing of the rescue tender in an enclosed bay in front of the wheelhouse, offering a cleaner exterior.
Power comes from twin MTU 8V 4000 M63 diesel engines delivering a top speed of 15 knots and a range of 4,000Nm at 12 knots.
Asya is asking €21,900,000.
