For Sale: A $40 Million Blind Date

Blind Date, an ultra-luxurious 48.9 metre megayacht built by Heesen in late 2009, has been listed for sale via Merle Wood & Associates for about $40 million. The design team for the impressive craft consisted of Omega Architects’ Frank Laupman (exterior) and the UK’s Keech Green (interior) in collaboration with the shipyard’s in-house team. Key features of the luxe layout are a wheelhouse deck extension containing a gymnasium; a liquid metal-finish spiral staircase connecting her four decks; a full dining suite on the aft bridge deck; and a sundeck equipped with a large Jacuzzi and a sprinkler system to cool the hot teak in strong sun.

The interior has an updated Art Deco feel with sybaritic splashes of marble, silk and cashmere throughout. The yacht’s ten guests are accommodated in four cabins on the lower deck and one full beam owner’s suite on the main deck. Each cabin features a private bathroom paneled with different semiprecious stones, including six different types of onyx. Powered by a pair of MTU 8V 4000 M70 engines, the yacht is good for a maximum speed of over 15 knots. You know, in case your late for a very important – or should we say very expensive – blind date….
