Heesen Yachts has revealed exclusive photos of the interior of the motor yacht Project Orion (also known as YN20750), designed by Cristiano Gatto.
In a statement to the press, the Dutch shipyard remarked: “Cristiano Gatto and his team have been working closely with the shipyard’s engineers to create an interior that is not only unique to this very special yacht but also reflects and complements its progressive exterior lines, capitalizing on the floor-to-ceiling windows and open bulwarks.”
“The interior style of Project Orion is the result of our research moved by matching and partially contrasting needs: comfort in luxury,” commented Cristiano Gatto. “We have combined construction details and opulent materials to use as Crown Jewels that refine the space whilst making sure it stays cozy and comfortable.”
The striking design of Project Orion takes advantage of the yacht’s expansive use of glass and low bulwarks. Striking the balance between comfort and luxury, the yacht interior features over 30 types of high-gloss wood, leather, marble, and custom plush furnishings throughout. Frank Laupman and his studio Omega Architects designed the yacht’s exterior.
Project Orion is a yacht from Heesen’s 50m FDHF aluminum series, which has an innovative hybrid power system for silent cruising and flexible power management. The lightweight nature of this motor yacht means that it will be ultra-efficient with a fast-displacement hull form upon delivery. It will be powered by twin MTU engines that will deliver a top speed of 16 knots. The shipyard expects that while cruising at 10 knots, the yacht’s fuel consumption will be just 45 liters (about 11.89 gal) per hour.
Project Orion is scheduled for delivery in early 2025.
