Heesen’s Mega Yacht Project Antares Becomes Vida: The latest vessel in the Heesen’s 55-meter Steel Class, formerly known as Project Antares and recently christened Vida, has entered systems commissions in preparation for sea trials in the North Sea.
Sold by the Dutch shipyard to an experience American owner who worked closely with Heesen’s technical team to customize the yacht, Mega yacht Vida has several special features that fulfill her role as a mothership to the owner’s sport fishing fleet. She was acquired by her owner in mid-build in 2017. These include her capacity to refuel and recharge twos port fishing boats that will allow the fleet to be at sea for many days without returning to port.
Vida is the third mega yacht in the 55-meter FDHF Steel Class, characterized by muscular exterior lines by Frank Laupman of Omega Architects. Vida has a clean profile due to the absence of fashion plates. Its design is elevated by floor-to-ceiling windows that allow plenty of natural light to flood the interior.
The owner appointed Be Design Associates (BDA) to create the interior décor, as he had previously worked with the studio on several residential projects, with the intention of giving the yacht a home-like feel. The Florida-based studio also worked on the architectural structure developed by Francesco Paszkowski and Margherita Casprini. Natural materials and soft colors create a comfortable, but elegant, ambience. Vida is BDA’s first new-built yacht project.
Five suites that house 12 guests are on the lower deck. The owner has a private 80-sqm. stateroom on the main deck. A backlit onyx arch frames the main saloon, which should wow anyone boarding the superyacht.
