Heesen Yachts Launches 50 Ventura

The owners chose a custom dark metallic grey for the hull and light metallic grey for the superstructure. Up to twelve guests can accommodated in six cabins. As well as the two master suites, on the lower deck there's a full-beam VIP cabin plus one twin and two double cabins.

Italian designer Francesco Paszkowski created the minimalistic interior décor. He commented: "I'm extremely proud to work with such an important and efficient shipyard. I'm also very happy to share this Italian design and our team's experience as well as to established a relationship with such an excellent shipyard and to share our ideas."

The 70-square-metre sundeck has been designed as a massive open-plan space with loose furniture that can be removed if space is needed to host big parties. The yacht also has three other outdoor areas including dining options on the main deck and the bridge deck aft.

Ventura is powered by two MTU 16V 4000 M90 engines and can reach a maximum speed of 22.5 knots. She has a range of 3,200 nautical miles at 11 knots.

Ventura will be delivered to her owners after intensive sea trials in the North Sea.
