On The Arcadia A105 Sea Coral 2
Sea Coral 2, the third hull in the award-winning ARCADIA A105 series, stands out not only for the originality of its design, but also for a special selection of furnishings and accessories.

– Quality guaranteed by the best “made in Italy” brands chosen among the most known on the international market: B&B Italia, Cantalupi, Cairo, Cassina, CTO Lightning, CVL, Flos, Gervasoni, India Madhavi, Living Divani, Maxalto, Modular Quasar Holland, Roda, Royal Botania, Tom Dickson, Trizo 21
– Klein Blue (named after the painter Yves Klein), a very intense electric blue, is the dominant colour on board
– Ample possibilities for the owner to move the furnishings around according to their needs.
After the first few months cruising in the Mediterranean Sea, the third ARCADIA A105 has crossed the ocean and is now in the Caribbean, where an intense use has confirmed her excellent navigation features. The care taken in fitting out the interiors is another reason it is appreciated by the owner and guests.
Like her sister ships, Sea Coral 2 is a 31.5 m long, 7.76 m wide yacht. The hull and deck are built in fibreglass while some of the veranda’s elements are made with aluminium. The interior decor was created in collaboration with the owner’s personal designer and the support of Milan-based Hot Lab firm. Enrico Lumini, Partner and Head of Design at Hot Lab, was personally involved in the team. Let’s take a tour on board to discover the details that make up the essence of the A105 Sea Coral 2.
On Board The Sunreef 70 Ginette: The Interior Pictures Revealed
Sunreef Yachts presents the first pictures of the Sunreef 70 Ginette. Recently launched, this custom-tailored sail craft blends refined interior design, supreme comfort and reliable performance.
The catamaran’s layout provides generous accommodation for up to eight guests. Located in the portside hull along with one of the guest cabins, the yacht’s vast master suite was fitted with a king-size bed with a tufted backrest, a vanity and an elegant ensuite bathroom. The starboard hull houses a vip cabin with a walk-in dressing and desk as well as a guest stateroom with a convertible twin bed.
The bespoke decor is contemporary and classic with numerous velvet and brass accents. All the bathroom fittings are matt black in order to match the classic black and white floor tiling.
The yacht’s main deck saloon features a lounging space with a large sofa, a wine cooler and a cozy elevated reading spot. The height-adjustable table can also be used as an extra sofa extension. To starboard, the yacht’s main galley provides top kitchen appliances and voluminous storage. Amidships, the kitchen island conceals restaurant quality equipment as well as a retractable TV.
With nearly 11m of beam, the Sunreef 70 boasts an impressive stern cockpit with plenty of space for dining, a barbecue and bar as well as a hydraulic swim platform. Accessed from the main saloon, the bow terrace features big sun pads, a sunken lounging space and clever diving gear storage. Ginette’s flybridge was given an open layout with oversized sun pads and a large u-shaped sofa.
YN 19550 Project Altea is sold
Heesen is delighted to announce the sale of Project Altea, YN 19550, the second yacht to be built on the Nova Plus design and engineering platform.
An all-aluminium 50-metre that features the patented Fast Displacement Hull Form, Altea comes in at just under 500GT, and was begun by Heesen as a speculative build. Her contemporary exterior design by Frank Laupman of Omega Architects soon caught her owners’ attention, with its long waterline, vast outdoor spaces, floor-to-ceiling windows and a purposeful profile characterised by chunky spray rails and an almost vertical bow. Once her Cristiano Gatto interior, Dutch pedigree and short delivery time were added to the mix, a deal was soon struck – Altea’s owners being already familiar with Heesen’s unrivalled levels of quality and craftsmanship, having chartered several recent yachts from the Heesen fleet.
Six elegant staterooms can accommodate twelve guests, while five cabins are provided for the yacht’s nine-strong crew. Cristiano Gatto is now working with the owners and their team to fine-tune the yacht’s warm and tranquil interior design, with a selection of contemporary loose furniture that will personalise the yacht to their taste and lifestyle. A carefully considered combination of leading brands and custom-designed items will complete the indoor and outdoor spaces, their luxury and comfort eloquently expressed by tactile combinations of simple but refined materials, such as the leather and parquet floor in the main saloon, and the precious Loro Piana fabrics of the bespoke sofa.
While different colour accents underline each cabin’s individuality, the main deck is characterised by a deep-sea blue that flows from the saloon through to the master suite. The sky lounge features rich purple hues that extend to the outdoor areas, where bespoke Paola Lenti furniture creates a classic contemporary ambience.
The yacht will be primarily for the use of the owners’ family, but will also be available for charter by selected clients. During the purchase process the owners were represented by Franco Ambrosi of Zarpo Yachts. After delivery Project Altea will join the Zarpo Yachts and Tony Lovec Yacht Management fleet, and offered for charter in the Mediterranean and in the Caribbean. Her experienced Italian captain, Antonio Gerini, will supervise the yacht’s completion and take the owners to explore the Mediterranean this summer and the Bahamas next winter. Captain Gerini has a long history with Heesen, having previously supervised new builds and captained other yachts in the fleet.
Project Altea will soon leave her dock and will remain in Heesen’s harbour for commissioning before going to the North sea for intensive testing. Delivery will be in time for the summer season.
