Fast, sleek and spacious, Akira is set to thrill speed enthusiasts and design aficionados alike. The first in Heesen’s new 57m Aluminium Class with FDHF, she reaches a rapid top speed of 22 knots. Defined by a shapely silhouette that includes an elongated profile and a completely new scoop-shaped stern, her beauty lies within the elegant and contemporary design, wrapped up in a high-volume 750GT.
The all-aluminium hull is the latest of the patented FDHF, devised by Dutch hydrodynamicists Van Oossanen and further engineered by Heesen’s naval architects. Due to its low-drag underwater body Akira needs less power and uses up to half the amount of fuel when compared to a conventional steel displacement yacht of the same size. The exterior was designed by Frank Laupman of Omega Architects and the naval architecture was penned by Heesen, with Harrison Eidsgaard conceiving the interior space.
