Motor Yacht QUITE ESSENTIAL (ex Quinta Essentia)
The 55 metre semi-displacement QUITE ESSENTIAL Yacht (YN 14955) was designed by Van Oossanen Naval Architects in collaboration with Heesen Yachts’ in-house designers. Her exterior designer is Frank Laupman of Omega design studio and Ken Freivokh carried out the l interior design layout, with interior design by Michela Reverberi.
A unique feature of the hull design are dramatic signature curved-window “balconies” extending from the owner’s suite forward on the main deck, the main deck saloon and the upper deck saloon immediately above. In each case, the bulwarks are glazed to allow clear views of the water, even when seated inside.
Superyacht QUITE ESSENTIAL has a design that offers some notably luxurious features including the largest owner’s suite seen on any Heesen superyacht to date, comparable to those found on yachts of 80m or above. Other special features of the yacht include a sport a tender bay that can be flooded to allow easy launching and recovery of the tenders, a swimming pool, aft on the main deck that is constantly replenished by a sheet waterfall. The owners guests will also love the gym and spa facilities, including a steam room and a massage room, located on the sun deck and the grand piano in the main saloon. An atrium of decorative glass, rising through three levels from the main deck, encompasses a spiral staircase and an elevator of glass and stainless steel.
Three expansive decks offer guests on charter yacht QUITE ESSENTIAL a wide variety of areas in which to relax, to take the sun and entertain. Deck areas have been carefully designed to offer maximum enjoyment and comfort, their unobstructed views emphasising the sense of spaciousness. Relaxon on the Sun deck in the spa pool or burn off energy in the adjoining a fully-equipped spa, entertain guests on the aft deck before dinner, enjoy breakfast or an aperitif on the top deck, or sip a tantalising cocktail on the spa foredeck.
The luxurious and conceptual interior design by Michela Reverberi is modern and futuristic with an intimate atmosphere that is not too stark. The inspiration for interior design work was ‘Quinta Essentia’ – the fifth element, which is the highest synthesis of the four elements. These four elements – Earth, Water, Air and Fire are represented in the four guests’ cabins, while the owners’ suite with a sliver colour palate synthesizes them all. The 5th element theme of Quinta Essentia yacht is integrated subtly into the design through details, colors and patterns which are displayed against an absolute and pure white background.
The rich cream salon boasts a relaxing and liberating air of spaciousness, enlivened by a dash of deep aubergine and a scattering of bright florals. The interior is flooded with natural light thanks to the wide windows and generously proportioned balconies. The large circular formal dining table on the upper deck is laid to perfection, with divine cruising prepared by a top-class chef and silver spoon service.

The owners suite located forward on the main deck is dominated by the colour silver, reflecting the bold colours of the four earthly elements in the guest cabins – creating an interpretation of the mythical fifth element, the quinta essentia. The owner’s suite extends into an elegant and private office area. The black, white and mirrored master bathroom combines modern and classic elements – a black stone bath tub and a wall of mirrors with silver leaf frames.
