Heesen Yachts christens “ALP”


After successful completion of tests in the North Sea, Heesen Yachts has christened its new build “ALP”.

The ceremony took place in Hellevoetsluis, South Holland, after this the “ALP” left for her maiden voyage in the Mediterranean.

Mark Cavendish, Heesen’s CCO, comments: “This time-honoured maritime tradition not only forges a bond between the vessel, the shipyard, the crew, and the sea but also invokes a sense of pride and anticipation for ALP’s future journeys. On behalf of everyone at Heesen, I would like to express our gratitude to Jim Evans and his team at Superyachts Monaco for their exceptional collaboration on this project.”

“ALP” belongs to Heesen’s 50-metre semi-displacement series. The exterior lines are penned by Frank Laupman of Omega Architects. The new build made of aluminum reaches a top speed of 23 knots. “ALP’s” contemporary interior spans almost 380 square metres. The personalise interior furniture were made and delivered by Heesen’s own company based in Winterswijk.

The outdoor spaces of “ALP” includes a sundeck, partially protected by a hardtop, a whirlpool surrounded by sun pads aft, a fully equipped bar, a dining area, and a seating area forward.

The main deck aft sports raised sun pads serviced by an adjacent bar. Elevating the relaxation area guarantees guest privacy when docked stern to in a marina.
