    Another new yacht has gone under construction at Heesen. This one is Project 'Apollo', a 55-meter Steel with the design by Frank Laupman. There is also collaboration with Luca Dini as well for the interior. One of the different things you will notice with this 55-meter is the horizontal window design on the forward main deck...usually it has been vertical windows with the other members of this 55-meter steel class. Just this week construction started with the keel laying.

    The muscular exterior lines of Project Apollo, have been revisited by Frank Laupman of Omega Architects. "As much as we love our original design with the vertical windows, we felt it was time to make an evolutionary step," said Frank. "We opted for a larger expanse of floor-to-ceiling glass, without mullions, in the main saloon and sky lounge. Then we took the opportunity to give a slightly more aggressive look to the profile, by using continuous sheets of tinted glass. The horizontal lines stretch the optical length and balance the air draft. The result is beautiful: we retained the family look and feel, but gave it an elegant touch."

    "Wallpapers belong to an amazing world, full of different designs and tastes," says interior designer Silvia Margutti. "Customizable items strongly define the atmosphere. Glass and mirrors can be found throughout Apollo’s interior - we never get tired of them." Apollo’s interior is rich with expensive surfaces and materials - marbles, zebrano hardwood, bronze. But what gives these things their real value is not their price, but their individuality, and the way they lend themselves to unique applications.
