Travelling long distances can be a hassle, with us being tied to uncomfortable situations when doing so, especially by sea. Most sea-travelling means are often small, constricted and offer little room for indoors pleasure when one grows tired of the sun. This, however, is not the case ever with Heesen Yachts, the Dutch shipyard specialized in excellence superyachts. We have previously explored the Project Gemini by Hessen, and in this edition, we present the sister ship, Moskito, formerly known as Project Pollux.
This new superyacht, delivered in April 2021, favours a shark-tooth superstructure and vertical windows throughout its 55-metre. The slick profile hides an ultra-efficient Fast Displacement Hull Form that allows for low fuel consumption, even at top speed.
Omega Architects oversaw the exterior design, which presents beautiful, muscular lines through and through. This ship is a statement of seafaring prowess, a demonstration of power and elegance. The interior was tasked to London-based studio Bannenberg & Rowell and shows a perfect balance of luxury and laid-back aesthetics.
“It works equally well It works equally well whether you’re in shorts and a T-shirt or dressed for dinner.”
Dark eucalyptus, sycamore and chevron come together in the floor and wall panels. The inside decoration and furniture include renowned brands such as Holly Hunt, Minotti, Armani Casa and Parkway Interiors, needless to say, the whole interior design exudes elegance and functionality. Then wide floor-to-ceiling windows flood the amenities with natural light and offer uninterrupted panoramic vistas of the sea all around the ship.
After departing from Malta in her maiden voyage, the Moskito will be available for private charters via International Yacht Collection, both in the Mediterranean and the Caribbean, depending on the time of year. Designed to perfection, as is customary with Heesen’s craftsmanship, the Moskito is sure to please the most discerning traveller and make each trip the most elegant and luxurious.
