Chinese yard Heysea Yachts has launched the first hull in its new 35.2 metre all-GRP motor yacht series Atlantic 115, now named Dopamine.
Construction officially began in March 2018 after the keel was laid in September 2017.
Built to MCA and RINA standards, this raised pilothouse design was developed in collaboration with Jure Bukavec of Uniellè Yacht Design. The build out and technical space designs meanwhile were developed by Heysea with the input from Captain Allan Sasson, Tim Kings with Azure Yacht Design as Owner’s Representatives.

The interior, which has been developed by H2 Yacht Design, features accommodation is for up to 12 guests split across five staterooms and a convertible Cabana-style beach club. The main-deck master cabin is undoubtedly the pick of the bunch as it benefits from 270-degree panoramic views out to sea.
