Sporty profile, powerful bow, big -
Despite the fact that below the waterline Irisha«has the» same as her cousin, the entire superstructure of the yacht has been completely redesigned in accordance with the Harrison Eidsgaard project, created in close collaboration with the owner. And the owner wasn't ready to make compromises.
As I was able to see at the Monaco show, Irisha is not only memorable from the outside. Its interiors are the perfect balance between versatility and originality.
The exterior of this boat does not conquer, like the Tankoa Solo with its avant-garde sculptures and chess pieces half a man high. Don't you think you've come to a museum where you'll be immediately attacked by a caretaker for spoiling an antique chair with her fifth point, like CRN Latona.
Irisha is not a wow boat
She will conquer gradually, deck by deck, detail by detail until you accidentally book her for the weekend. And on holidays. And for the whole vacation.
And Irisha wasn't originally conceived as a charter.
«The owner decided to charter it just a week before the reception,"»says Sara Gioanola, head of PR Heesen.
Commercial certification imposes certain obligations on the builders, and the larger the interior volume of the yacht, the stricter these obligations are. In this way «Irisha has» acquired removable glass panels for the winter garden, which are stored on the shore during the season, which allows to keep the internal volumes of the yacht less than 500 BRT in the specifications. In cooler seasons, the panels are returned to their place and the winter garden turns from open to closed.
Floor-to-ceiling sliding doors separate the winter garden from the aft deck on one side and the more formal dining area on the other. The sun loungers at the stern are unusually elevated for two reasons: firstly
But back to the main deck. Passing the winter garden, we reach the dining area. The already long dining table here has an attached section that allows for a dinner party for twenty-two guests at a time.
Next is the standard zoning: to the left is the door to the crew quarters, to the right is the access to the amazingly spacious
The door to the crew quarters leads to the spacious pantry and galley, where Chef Charly sorcerers.
«This boat is the best I've ever worked on," he»admits. «I have a small garden here," he»adds, pointing to pots of rosemary, thyme, basil and oregano.
«Irisha»'s interiors were worked on by the same team that her owner hired to redo his previous vessel, the 44-meter
The colour scheme of the interiors is quite traditional - beige,
A highlight of the Irisha interiors, voted best on World Yachts Trophies 2018, is the combination of textures.
Soft carpets, fabrics with a pronounced structure, textured walls with Venetian plaster finish from British sorcerers DKT Atworks - with all this you want to interact as long as possible.
To the left of the bed, a light hold for the hostess. There is a separate office for the owner in strict grey tones with large windows.
Behind the opposite wall - a bathroom with two entrances, separate sinks and showers for two and a hammam, the center of attraction of which is a free-standing shared bathroom in varnished wood Wenge. Marble and onyx are everywhere in the bathroom.
Complementing the household suite is the already
Four guest cabins are located on the lower deck. The wall, beautifully crafted by an Italian craftsman and covered with a layer of epoxy resin, separates the cabins with two single beds. The drawing on the wall in each cabin is unique.
But this wall has another secret: at the push of a button, she goes into the bulkhead to form one large
A pair of single beds can be transformed into one double bed, with not only the berths themselves moving in and out, but also the headboard panels, so it
Raised wheelhouse and skylounge form the upper deck of Irisha«. From the high bridge there is a very good view - not only because it is raised, but also because of the use of a huge curved piece of glass as glazing, which continues where the roof usually already begins. The night-time illumination of the control panel gives the impression that the instruments are floating «in the» air.
Skylounge is used primarily as a venue for watching movies and football matches. The screen and projector move out of the ceiling and the home theatre system is complemented by an audio system from California Audio Technology. The worktop of the bar is made of wood, polished and covered with gold paint, and then flooded with epoxy for protection against damage. The composition is completed by a coffee table from a solid piece of wood.
Aft is a fancy shape sofa with wings«bent»inwards. The owner asked for a place where all guests could communicate while sitting face to face.
The side aisles provide access to the nose with another sofa with a table. This area can be covered from the sun and wind by lifting a tent on the hydraulics.
Sandek is the most party deck of Irisha«. There is a Jacuzzi surrounded by sun loungers and a large bar with seating for eight people.
The maximum speed of the yacht is 25 knots, but during sea trials it was squeezed out and more than 26 knots.
Irisha is faster than other Heesen boats on the same platform: its chassis has been upgraded to match the owner's brief.Ideal for breeze trips across the Mediterranean in a large company, she can also be used for longer voyages in a narrow circle: at 15 knots, she has a range of 2425 knots without refilling.
The cost of renting Irisha via SuperYachtsMonaco is between 280 and 300 thousand euros per week.
