VIDA in the Caribbean


The 55 metre motor yacht VIDA, was spotted in the Caribbean earlier last week. Built in steel by Heesen,Vida is the third in the successful 55m Steel class series and was delivered to an experienced American yachtsman last year.

Featuring muscular exterior lines by Frank Laupman. The profile is clean thanks to the absence of fashion plates and the design is characterised by floor-to-ceiling windows that allow for plenty of natural light to flood the interiors.

At 740GT, Vida offers a maximum speed of 16 knots and frugal fuel consumption that gives a remarkable range of 4,500nm at 13 knots, thanks to the progressive hull design devised by van Oossanen Naval Architects.
