Quinta Essentia superyacht now available

May 27, 2016


Quinta Essentia, the first Superyacht by Heesen Yachts of 55m in the semi-displacement series, is available for charter in the Mediterranean. Superyacht Quinta Essentia is the largest and one of the most powerful Heesen yachts to be launched so far. Quinta Essentia is able to reach a notable top speed of 24 knots through her dual 4300KW, MTU 20V 4000 M93L diesel engines.

This is the first in the range of 55m sophisticated semi-displacement, hard-chine hulls created in collaboration with Van Oossanen Associates and Heesen’s in-house naval architects with sleek exterior lines by Frank Laupman of Omega Architects. Click here to view the yacht.


The exterior design features a pelican beak bow and reverse sheer with a colour scheme combination of a custom metallic dark red Awlgrip paint that is combined with a shade of oyster white. This custom collaboration among the owner and Dobroserdov Design works to encapsulate the owner’s passions of Tuscan wines, a colour scheme also used on the exquisite limo tenders from Vaudrey Miller.

The discrete luxury of Quinta Essentia’s interior was conceived by designer Ken Freivokh and further developed by Michela Reverber, who was responsible for the detailing and interior decoration.

Quinta Essentia’s design offers some notably luxurious features, such as the largest owners’ stateroom. In size it is comparable to those found on yachts of over 80 metres, while she is also the first in the Heesen fleet to sport a tender bat that can be flooded to allow easy launching and recovery of the tenders and a swimming pool on the main deck that is filled by a waterfall. The gym and spa facilities, including a steam room and a massage room, play a key role on the sun deck.

Countless extra features include a pool on the main aft deck fed by a waterfall from the deck above, underwater cameras linked into the vessel”s AV system and a custom limousine tender from renowned builder Vaudrey Miller.

Quinta Essentia, the fifth essence – superior to the four elements of earth, air, fire and water- that pure and rarified place believed to have been inhabited by the heavenly bodies of ancient Greece. 55 metre Quinta Essentia is the largest and one of the most powerful Heesen yachts yet launched.

The all-aluminium Quinta Essentia is truly striking, and – with a top speed of 24 knots – has so much more than just good looks. Three expansive decks offer guests a wide variety of areas in which to relax, to take the sun and entertain. The swimming pool, aft on the main deck, is constantly replenished by a sheet waterfall, and the sun deck features a Jacuzzi adjoining a fully-equipped spa. Click here to view the yacht.

Deck areas have been carefully planned to give maximum enjoyment and comfort, their unobstructed views emphasising the sense of spaciousness. Entertain guests on the aft deck before dinner, enjoy breakfast or an aperitif on the top deck, or sip a tantalising cocktail on the spa foredeck. blog_quintaessentia3

With a relaxing and liberating air of spaciousness, the rich cream salon is enlivened by a dash of deep aubergine and a scattering of bright florals. The interior is awash with natural light which pours in through the wide windows and generously proportioned balconies. A grand piano holds the promise of pleasurable evenings filled with music. A table laid to perfection, a top-class chef and silver spoon service, the dining experience on Quinta Essentia is unsurpassed.

The chef carefully selects the freshest ingredients to suit any dietary requirements or whims, any time of day or night. Entertain in supreme style, where attention to detail is the crew’s priority.

With Quinta Essentia’s selection of up-to-date waverunners, sea bobs and inflatables, guests can explore the coastline, or have an adrenalin-fuelled, action-packed day. The yacht is the first in the Heesen fleet to sport a tender bay that can be flooded to allow easy launching and recovery.

Quinta Essentia has a fully equipped gym with a 180-degree view of the ocean. The latest fitness machines ensure an efficient and effective workout, with the finest in high definition entertainment. The onboard professional masseuse caters for those in search of a more soothing and therapeutic experience. Let off some steam in the sauna or scrub down in the fragrant hammam.

An atrium of decorative glass, rising through three levels from the main deck, encompasses a spiral staircase and an elevator of glass and stainless steel.



Quinta Essentia offers accommodation for up to 10 guests in 5 suites: a VIP cabin, three double cabins and one triple cabin. Silver is the dominant colour in the owners’ suite (forward on the main deck), reflecting the bold colours of the four earthly elements in the guest cabins – creating an interpretation of the mythical fifth element, the quinta essentia.

The black, white and mirrored master bathroom combines modern and classic elements – a black stone bath tub and a wall of mirrors with silver leaf frames. The owner’s suite also extends into an elegant and private bureau.


The gloriously earthy, fiery, bright and cool hues of Quinta Essentia’s impressive suite of guest cabins are dramatically offset by the pure white background. Carpeting throughout is in hand-woven white silk, into which the designer Reverberi has introduced a single, tapering, wave-like brush-stroke, in shades to represent each element. The doors to the guest rooms are decorative glass, hand-made at Pictet atelier.
