New photos have emerged of Heesen Yachts' YN 18151 after the Nertherlands shipyard joined her hull and superstructure.

The all-aluminum, semi-displacement superyacht was designed by Eidsgaard Design. The design is described as similar to the “aggressive look of a jet fighter,” Heesen states.

She’ll be powered by two MTU 16V 4000 M93L diesel engines, which will allow the 167-footer to reach a top-end of 25 knots and have a range of 2,425 nautical miles at 11 knots.

Quick Specs: The yacht's beam is just under 30 feet. The vessel can accommodate 10 guests, plus 10 crew.

Heesen says that YN 18151 will be delivered to her owners in spring 2018.
