The 55m/180.5ft luxury yacht MOSKITO, previously known as PROJECT POLLUX during construction, has been delivered to her Owner by the Heesen shipyard and will be available for Western Mediterranean charters this summer season.

She is the second yacht from the shipyard to be delivered in 2021 and has a modern, muscular appearance created by Omega Architects. The ‘shark tooth’ design of the superstructure overhangs produces a signature appearance, and dark vertical windows contrast against the while hull and superstructure to dramatic effect.

Bannenberg & Rowell had ample interior volume to work with, coming in at 760 GT, and the understated elegance is ideal for celebrating in style or relaxing together with family and friends: The main salon has a contrast of dark eucalyptus and pale sycamore joinery and chevron parquet flooring that makes the bar even more eye-catching. Floor-to-ceiling windows and open bulwarks grant guests magnificent views of the environment whilst relaxing within the climate-controlled interior.

The accommodation, meanwhile, provides up to 12 guests with six en-suite cabins to act as a private retreat: 1 Master suite, 2 VIP staterooms, 1 double cabin and 2 twin cabins that can convert to doubles.

Outside, there is a sundeck Jacuzzi and plenty of sunbathing options, while guests who want to chat and admire the view can do so in complete comfort while the Captain and crew of 12 see to every detail. A beach club in the lower deck stern is a wonderful place to greet visitors and welcome them on board or watch the rest of the group playing on the water toys from this Approved RYA Water Sports Centre.

The MTU 8V 4000 M63 engines are IMO Tier III-compliant, and in conjunction with the Fast Displacement Hull Form from Van Oossanen allow for economical cruising with a rate of only 150 litres of fuel consumed per hour at 11 knots.

Following her delivery, M/Y MOSKITO will make her maiden voyage to Malta, visiting 81 waypoints and cruising non-stop over 2,800 nautical miles to truly give her abilities a test run.
