Ann G is easily one of the best superyachts from Dutch shipyard Heesen Yachts, and a major highlight of the 2015 yachting season. She was launched in May 2015 and delivered several weeks later in July 2015. The hand over took place on international waters days after the vessel completed a series of sea trials in the North Sea.
As with any yacht from Heesen, Ann G was bestowed with the finest materials and represents the culmination of a partnership between brokerage company Arcon Yachts and Heesen – which began 3 years ago. Arcon Yachts were in charge of the project management which included overseeing all stages of design, maintenance and overall construction.
The end result was a bespoke vessel which very much involved the owners throughout especially in choosing the design materials. The exterior design was carried out by Clifford Denn, the inhouse design team at Heesen was in charge of the naval construction which comprises of a steel hull and an aluminum superstructure.
The interior work was handed over to masters from Raymond Langton Design who incorporated contemporary art and rich fabrics throughout the cabins. Ann G is a pure work of art, from mosaic to Art Deco, everything that an art lover would immediately recognize upon stepping onboard. The cabins have been treated to Macassar ebony and stainless steel accents, with backlit white onyx and soft tactile leather providing unrivaled finishes.
Art Deco themes continue to feature across the main salon where central entertainment is located. There is a bar and dining area both utilizing the rich aforementioned materials, which glamorously glow in both natural and artificial lighting. The guest cabins also feature mosaic stone art, rich fabrics and further artwork.
Ann G’s master suite is located forward on the main deck and just like the rest of the interior, rich artwork has been carried over to the walls and furniture. The suite has a private office, full beam bedroom with an enormous bathroom fitted with his and her changing rooms.
The bridge deck hosts an informal sky lounge where guests can relax and enjoy panoramic ocean views surrounded by Macassar architecture. Further down on the lower deck you find the beach club which hosts more leisure equipment including the gym, steam room and bar.
Ann G has five guest cabins that can accommodate 10 guests. She’s powered by two MTU diesel engines capable of reaching a maximum speed of 15 knots and a cruising speed of 12 knots with a range of 4,000 nm.
Given her exemplary nature, Ann G has won a number of awards since her launch in May last year. These awards include The 2015 Invictus Yachts Trophies for the Best Exterior Design and ‘Most Achieved’. Ann G was also a finalist in The World Superyacht Awards 2016 and The Showboats Design Awards 2016.
