Heesen’s 'fighter-jet' 51m Irisha is to debut at Monaco Yacht Show
The superyacht boasts an impactful ‘fighter-jet’ design
The Monaco Yacht Show is renowned for showcasing the biggest and the best from the yachting world, and 2018 is already shaping up to be no different. Heesen Yachts has announced its semi-displacement fully-custom motor yacht, 51m Irisha, is to make its stunning debut at this year’s show in September – and it’s a strong contender for chicest of the lot.
Propelled by the owner’s brief for an ‘aggressive and dynamic yacht’ this innovative model boasts fighter-jet inspired exteriors and luxurious grey scale interiors, both of which were designed by renowned British superyacht designer company Harrison Eidsgaard. The sporty raised wheelhouse is curated from 3D curved glass sheets and are among the largest produced in Europe.
In terms of aesthetics, the top is snow white, the main deck is midnight blue and the impressive hull is a custom metallic Pacific Blue colour, which in sunlight transforms to dark olive-green hues – a feature bound to attract attention.
Entertaining is the core principal of this yacht – which has been designed to accommodate 22 guests. The sky lounge is equipped with a cinema screen and projector and served by a wet bar to create the ideal socialising hub. The main deck is characterised by an innovative indoor-outdoor winter garden, with sliding glass doors and a living area and even at-anchor sauna facilities.
The owner’s stateroom is marked by a hand-felted silk bedhead, adorned by Dutch artist Claudy Jongstra, with a private French balcony with sliding glass doors. The owner’s bathroom is complete with his and hers walk in wardrobe, a central wengé bathtub with onyx and marble throughout.
Irisha can accommodate eight guests on the lower deck in two double suites and two twins, with a VIP with seating area thanks to a sliding partition. The yacht is currently available for charter across the Mediterranean including the South of France, Monaco and Corsica – which marks an extremely rare for the brand, as usually all of Heesen's yachts are privately owned.
