Heesen Yachts Launches 10th 3700 Superyacht, “Aurelia”
Dutch superyacht manufacturer Heesen Yachts announced another successful aluminum megayacht launch. On June 10, the latest member of the Heesen 3700 Superyacht Series splashed Dutch waters. Its obvious even to the casual yacht observer, this high-speed yacht, named Aurelia, isn’t the average Heesen 3700.
Aurelia, initially known as Project ‘Petra’ under construction, represents the 10th Heesen 3700 to be launched, with a paint scheme to match. Featuring an orange and blue hull, with standard white superstructure, an over-sized “10″ has been painted across the hull-sides, reflecting the spirit of a racing car. A matching yacht tender, and race car theme exist throughout her interior, even into her five staterooms.
Like most Heesen Yachts before her, her twin MTU 16V4000M90 engines allow her a consistent 30-knot performance, giving her bold styling substance, Aurelia will soon be available in the yacht charter market in the Mediterranean in the Summers Months and the Caribbean during the Winter Season. Charter rates are published at $125,000 / week.
