White – Heesen’s New 164-foot Superyacht


Heesen has launched the 164-foot White, a motoryacht previously known as Project Ayla during the construction process. As its name suggests, the yacht has a stark white exterior, the only contrasts being the dark side windows. Frank Laupman of Omega Architects created exterior lines that blend soft curves with aggressive side panels, adding contemporary vertical windows along the aft section. The result is a yacht that looks fast, but not overly macho. The lines and curves work well with the color.


White completed its trials in the North Sea, with seas running two feet. The boat’s large rudders connected to an electric steering system makes White unusually responsive for a yacht its size. The twin 3,862 hp MTU engines were chosen for a high power-to-weight ratio, giving the yacht a very respectable top-end speed that crossed 23 knots during the sea trails. At its 11-knot cruise speed, White has a transatlantic range of 3,100 miles.


The seventh yacht in Heesen’s 5000 Aluminum class was also designed to be unusually quiet while running, with low interior decibel levels and minimal vibration from the engines. White also has a specially designed bow thruster, so the yacht can be turned in tight quarters, even during windy conditions.
