Heesen Has Delivered the Second Yacht This Year: The 55m Moskito
Heesen Yachts announced the delivery of Moskito, YN 19255, previously known as Project Pollux. At 55m, with a Gross Tonnage of 760 GT, she is the second yacht delivered by Heesen in 2021. Her muscular exterior lines were made by Omega Architects and are characterised by 'shark-tooth' superstructure overhangs and vertical windows.

Powered by IMO III-compliant MTU 8V 4000 M63s, it offers frugal fuel consumption of just 150 litres per hour at 11 knots.Her interior design was made by London-based studio Bannenberg & Rowell. The décor combines bold solutions with casual appeal, as is seen for example in the main saloon’s dark eucalyptus and pale sycamore joinery and chevron parquet flooring. As Dickie Bannenberg describes it, "It works equally well whether you’re in shorts and a T-shirt or dressed for dinner". "We've really enjoyed the journey from conception to completion on Moskito, greatly helped by the new owner not only going with every aspect of our original design for Heesen, but also asking us to select artwork and books,” continues Bannenberg. “Not forgetting the yacht's identity and graphics. We don't always get to remain design control freaks like this! We want to thank Minotti, Holly Hunt, Armani Casa and Parkway Interiors, among others, for going above and beyond during these challenging times of Covid-19 and Brexit, to deliver the items we selected. We also owe a special thank you to those artists who drove their work to our shippers to make sure we got them on board," he added.Moskito’s well-appointed amenities are illuminated by floor-to-ceiling windows and open bulwarks, whose sweeping sea-to-sky vistas immerse guests in the beauty of the environment.After delivery, Moskito will depart for her maiden voyage to Malta. Captain Phil Larkin and his crew of twelve will take her non-stop over 2,800 nautical miles via the 81 waypoints of the passage plan – a true shakedown cruise, ideal for testing their brand new yacht in all conditions.Moskito will be available for charter by selected guests via International Yacht Collection in the Mediterranean in summer and in the Caribbean in winter.Heesen Yachts is a Dutch ship building company that specializes in custom-built superyachts in aluminium and steel from 30 to 70m in size.
