Accommodation is for up to eight guests split between four cabins, including a main deck owner’s suite . On the lower deck, a full-beam VIP sits just aft of the portside twin and starboard double cabin. The crew quarters are situated in the bow and allow for a staff of up to five people, with a crew mess and double cabin for the captain.


Key features include a Cabana-style beach club complete with dayhead, and a large aft deck, which is split between sunbathing space aft and sheltered dining space further forward.


Moving inside and the open-plan saloon comprises an eight-person dining table, L-shaped settee and a bar area with three stools. However, the star of the show is the spacious super yachts undeck — this area will be fitted with a tender davit, spa pool, dining table, barbecue, bar area and a C-shaped settee, with enough room leftover for three sunloungers to be placed back aft.


Power will come from a pair of 1,925hp Caterpillar C32 ACERT engines for a top speed of 22 knots and comfortable cruising at 19 knots. When trimmed back to an economic speed of ten knots, the Heysea Asteria 126 will have a cruising range of 1,200 nautical miles, drawing on a total fuel capacity of 13,500 litres.
