Last month, the 55-metre project Pollux was launched at the Dutch yard Heesen.

The new yacht is now getting ready to make her way out to the North Sea for her early-October sea trials.

In comparison to her sisterships, Pollux features a different interior layout devised by Bannenberg & Rowell and exterior designer Omega Architects.

Within her 760 GT, Pollux has her tenders and toys stored on the foredeck to allow for a beach club. Other outdoor areas include a large sundeck with full dining facilities, a generous bar and a hot tub.

With six staterooms on board, there is space to accommodate up to 12 overnight guests with the 82-square-metre owner’s suite on the main deck forward being the standout option. The VIP stateroom is found on the bridge deck whereas the remaining four suites are on the lower deck.

As seen in the latest renderings, guests will find that the interior spaces are decorated with dark eucalyptus and pale sycamore joinery, with chevron parquet flooring in the main saloon. Geometric shapes, natural tones, and bold finishes were also part of the design brief.

“It’s always an exciting milestone in the build process when launch marks the final few months of work. We’ve tested the Heesen joinery team with plenty of curves and details and they have done a beautiful job. We are greatly looking forward to seeing her finished," comments Dickie Bannenberg.

Powered by two fuel-efficient MTU Tier III compliant diesel engines, she is set to reach a top speed of 15.5 knots and a range of 4,500 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 13 knots.
