BOOK ENDS is for sale

Published 11 September 2023

BOOK ENDS is a 50m (164ft) powerful trideck motor yacht with a semi-displacement hull form capable of 23 knots. Delivered in July 2022 by Dutch shipyard Heesen, she is a full-aluminium yacht built to ABS classification with notably shallow draught of less than 2.2m (7.2ft) to allow more extensive cruising.

The exterior design by Omega Architects brings up-to-date the Heesen-hallmark reverse sheer and streamlined silhouette to create a dynamic, contemporary profile.
