This Yacht Piles on the Style and the Substance

When it comes to creating superyachts that look svelter than they really are, Heesen Yachts is one of the best in the biz. And one of the latest boats from the Dutch shipyard’s LY3-compliant 47-meter (154-foot) series, the Asya, is an impressive reminder of why this is so. But this steel-hulled vessel’s beauty is more than skin-deep.

Venture inside and you’ll find a clean, modern décor inspired by the works of Dieter Rams, Frank Lloyd Wright and Tadao Ando. Bright but earthy tones are accented by bronze accents and silver-gray oak decking, lending the main saloon (read: common area) and its three divided living areas (one of which is a library-esque lounge) a mellow but still upbeat vibe. And with the twin MTU 8V 4000 M63 engines providing up to 4,000 nautical miles of range, you can enjoy that stylish-yet-soothing interior for many, many days at a time.
