Project Alida is a 55m fast displacement, steel-hulled motoryacht of 740GT. Omega Architects created an exterior design that emphasises the indoor-outdoor connection thanks to glass insertions in the bulwarks and the floor-to-ceiling windows in the sky lounge.

Vertical windows on the main deck, together with an original "shark tooth" design detailing on the overhang of the wheelhouse.

The clean and muscular exterior lines without fashion plates and structural support have been engineered and executed by Heesen in-house experts.

Radyca, a Miami-based design firm, is in charge of the interior styling while working closely with the shipyard to ensure that the client’s taste is incorporated into the interior design.

A contrast of the interiors is achieved by the consistent use of neutral hues found in open-grain white oak and different tones of wengé, taupe and grey leathers, wool carpets, and light textured suedes. White Arabescato and Grecale brown marble slabs emphasise the purity of the design. 

Guests will be accommodated in six staterooms: five guest cabins on the lower deck, including a full-beam VIP, and the master suite traditionally located on the main deck forward.

With the tenders stored on the forward deck, a beach club is set into the lazarette.
