The word ‘inception’ has taken on a new significance since its beginnings in late Middle English. Linguistic purists will support the dictionary definition of ‘the establishment or starting point of a journey’. Science fiction aficionados will tell you that it refers to the act of instilling an idea into someone’s mind by entering his or her dreams.
In their construction and design of Inception, Heesen yacht builders can be credited with drawing inspiration from both of these definitions. The result? A superyacht that’s ready to provide the starting point for the journeys you’ve always dreamed of taking.
And it truly is a yacht of dreamlike design, combining striking elegance with arguably the best outdoor space of any 50m vessel we’ve seen. Her shape is highlighted by sharp, sweeping lines which, alongside her tinted windows and streamlined structure, endow the yacht with a type of celebrity status.
Step aboard Inception, and you’ll find that her effortless style extends into the interior, thanks to design by Omega Architects. An elegant combination of rich woods, Murano glass walls and fine silk coverings allows the superyacht to feel at once effortlessly cool and charmingly intimate. And you’ll want for nothing once on board, with an award-winning 11-person crew on hand to cater to your every need.
Inception can cater for up to 10 guests. By day, the huge sundeck boasts a 12-person Jacuzzi and quadruple sunpad to lounge in the sun. At night, the bar (with tiger’s eye lacquer finish) and dining area are set under a retracting sunroof and illuminated by micro starlights.
The foredeck has a teak terrace and clamshell awning that provides shade and can be converted into a cinema — perfect for, say, a Christopher Nolan screening.
Watersports fans can enjoy a fishing chase boat and there’s a Novurania tender, paddle boards, waverunners and wakeboards to make like Leonardo DiCaprio and enjoy some fun on the water.
