Heesen Yachts are looking forward to a big year. Check out what they have in store for us.
They will deliver no fewer than six superyachts in 2021. With a total length of 315 metres and an even more impressive combined volume of 3,816 Gross Tons. They currently have 14 yachts currently under construction, with deliveries taking them through 2024. These include both semi-custom and full-custom yachts, from 50 to 80 metres in length. Below we have picked 4 of their exciting current projects.
The imminent launch of YN 18950 Project Aquamarine, the first in the new 5000 Aluminium Class, will mark the start of a busy year. Possessing a narrow, curved and sporty superstructure, Aquamarine is a 50m fast-cruising aluminium semi-displacement yacht. With crisp design language and enviable appeal. Also equipped with MTU’s new green oceanic engines with reduced NOx emissions. Aquamarine is the first fast-cruising yacht below 500GT to be IMO Tier III compliant.
The 60-metre Project SkyFall, is a 60m all-aluminium, full-custom motoryacht. She is set for delivery in spring 2023. Her thunder will come from 22,000 horsepower. This extraordinary power will feed four water jets that will drive her at 37 knots in light load conditions. An impressive feat, particularly when considering her significant 900GT volume. She is the most powerful project Heesen has created to date. SkyFall exudes power and speed in every single detail. The exterior design includes a fishing cockpit located at the stern for her Owner, who is a keen angler.
67-metre Project Sparta is taking shape. We will see her hull and superstructure joined in the autumn. At 67 metres and with an internal volume of approximately 1,200 Gross Tons, Project Sparta is the largest steel-hulled displacement motor yacht built by Heesen to date. Her ultra-efficient Fast Displacement Hull Form is an iteration of the patented design by van Oossanen. This is complimented above the waterline by a dynamic profile from the drawing board of Winch Design. Powered by two MTU 12V4000 M65R diesel engines, she will reach a top speed of 16 knots. She has a transatlantic cruising range of 4,500 nautical miles at 12 knots.
November will see the launch of the mighty 80-metre Project Cosmos. With exterior lines by Winch Design, and interiors by Sinot Yacht Architecture and Design. Project Cosmos will carry on the theme of Heesen’s flagship having a space related name. At 1,700 Gross Tons and with a top speed of 29 knots, Project Cosmos will be the world’s largest and fastest full-aluminium Superyacht with a conventional propeller propulsion system.
All this in 2021 will be down to Heesen’s 500 employees and their additional, 500-strong flexible workforce. Thanks to the resilience, commitment and passion of Heesen’s women and men, who adapted to new ways of working imposed by the pandemic.
