55-meter Alida by Heesen Sold.

BARIN CARDENAS OF THE NEW YACHTS COMPANY HAS SOLD THE NEW 55-METER MOTOR YACHT ALIDA.

Built by Dutch yard Heesen to Lloyd’s class, Alida is a fast displacement motor yacht with a steel hull and aluminum superstructure. She is one of the most advanced yachts in her class, due in large part to her unique, fast displacement hull design by renowned naval architect Van Oossanen.

The client, an experienced boater, was introduced to the shipyard by Barin Cardenas of The New Yachts Company, a boutique Fort Lauderdale-based firm dedicated to new yacht construction.

RADYCA, a Miami-based design firm, is in charge of the interior styling. They are working closely with the shipyard to ensure that the client’s taste is incorporated into the space, creating a sophisticated, tailor-made, unique experience.
Simplicity, warmth and comfort through the use of select materials, and a high level of craftsmanship, are the key ingredients in the creation of Alida’s refined interior. The overall design is for an owner who understands luxury, relaxation and entertainment while yachting.

Contrast is achieved by the consistent use of neutral hues found in open-grain white oak and different tones of wengue, taupe and gray leathers, wool carpets, and light textured suedes. White Arabescato and Grecale brown marble slabs emphasize the purity of the design.

Alida’s spacious interior offers numerous possibilities for entertainment at sea, from a generous 110-square meter Sundeck, to a Skylounge that is wrapped almost entirely in glass. On Alida, nothing comes between you and breathtaking ocean views.

Her accommodations offer an impressive 250-square meters of luxury space. Of special interest is the full beam VIP Cabin, which in addition to the full beam Master Suite and the four Double Cabins, provides sleeping quarters for up to 12 guests.

According to Cardenas, “Our hard work has rewarded The New Yachts Company with an incredible start to 2017. In just the past few months, we launched the revolutionary 50-meter PRIME Megayacht Platform, we sold the award-winning M/Y NONO (one of our favorite builds to date), and now we jumpstart our commitment to new yacht development with the sale of Heesen’s 55-meter Alida.

Additionally, our Brand Ambassador program has welcomed top tier partners into the fold, allowing us to share our knowledge and guidance with premium builders and brands aligned with our vision for excellence in yachting.

Heartfelft thanks goes out to our clients and colleagues for their trust & support. We are stronger and more motivated than ever, and eager to carry this momentum forward into 2017!”

Twin MTU 8V 4000 M63 engines give Alida a maximum speed of 16 knots, and a range of 4,500 nautical miles at cruise.

Alida is scheduled to launch this summer.

The New Yachts Company is a Fort Lauderdale-based incubator helping launch innovative brands, designs and builds into the yachting industry. We take great pride in forging mutually beneficial relationships between yacht owners, shipyards, designers, naval architects, and engineers.
