Project-Boreas-665x665.jpg
Project Boreas

This stylish motor yacht made from aluminium, was built on the design and engineering platform of Nova Plus. The Project Boreas provides efficient and fast performance due to its fast displacement hull form. With a draft of 2.15m the Project Boreas has a beautiful contemporary exterior designed by the renowned Omega Architects.

The sailing yacht owner client was attracted by the efficiency, seakeeping and versatility of the fast displacement hull form. He approached the shipyard personally and worked with the engineers to customise his new superyacht which was one year into construction.

Due to his sailing experience, the client was able to add his own personal touch into each area of the new vessel.

Project Boreas is a wonderful example of how a client is able to customise the pre-engineered design platform of a hull that is already being built. This actually helps to shorten the delivery time too. After extensive sea trials in the North Sea the impressive yacht is expected to be delivered in July 2019.

Project Alba – 5000 aluminium class, 50-metre semi-displacement – is now christened VanTom!

Heesen is proud to announce the christening of YN 18050 (formerly Project Alba) during a private ceremony at the shipyard in Oss, in the presence of the owners and the Heesen workforce.

VanTom started on speculation as Project Alba and the owners bought her six months in to the construction. Arne Ploch from Camper and Nicholsons International introduced the client. The owner and his wife worked closely with Francesco Paszkowski, Margherita Casprini, and the shipyard’s engineers to create an interior design that reflects their taste and the lifestyle of their family: a contemporary and unique aesthetic of understated elegance where they can enjoy peace and relaxation and feel like home. Heesen Interiors fine-wood-carpenters have crafted the custom furniture to the highest construction standards.

The interior layout is traditional with the master suite on the main deck forward and five guest suites on the lower deck, for a total of 12 passengers in 6 cabins.

In the next weeks, VanTom will be tested in the winter-rough waters of the North Sea. Like her sister ships she is expected to reach a maximum speed of 23 knots and have a range of 3,100 nautical miles at 12 knots. VanTom is due for delivery in January 2018 and will be for private use only.

Heesen Delivers Hybrid Superyacht Home

Michael Verdon wrote the following for Robb Report:

Heesen Delivers Hybrid Superyacht Home
The world’s first fast hybrid yacht is delivered to its owner.
BY MICHAEL VERDON ON JULY 20, 2017


Project Nova, the 163-foot Heesen hybrid yacht recently named Home, completed five days of extensive sea trials in the North Sea. Now the yacht is on its way to owners in the Mediterranean. RobbReport.com spoke to Nigel Jenkins, the yacht’s captain, during the shakedown cruise about how well the world’s first fast-hybrid yacht has performed.

Home’s new owner is described by the Dutch yard as a yacht “enthusiast” who has owned several yachts. Home is his first Heesen and his first hybrid. He was attracted by its Omega-designed exterior, which includes an almost hawk-like, vertical bow that serves as the entry for a long, lean profile. But the other feature that convinced him was Home’s hybrid electric-diesel propulsion mated to Heesen’s advanced hull shape.

Over the last five years, Heesen has made a name for itself with its Fast Displacement Hull Form (FDHF), designed by Van Oossanen Naval Architects, and first used on the 213-foot Galactica Star as well as three other steel-hulled Heesens since.

Home is powered by twin 804 hp MTU 12V 2000 M61 engines, which are small for a yacht this size. Despite the constrained horsepower, Home still achieved an impressive top end of 16.3 knots during its sea trials. Jenkins said top speed increased to 18.5 knots when the MTUs were supplemented with the yacht’s two 170 hp DC electric engines.

“It cruises quite nicely at 16 knots,” Jenkins said during the cruise. “At that speed, it only consumes about 71 gallons per hour.” At 12 knots, fuel consumption drops to 26 gph. Using only the electric motors gives Home a respectable speed of 10 knots at an ultra-miserly 12 gph. When one considers the yacht’s length and 295-ton displacement, Home’s fuel consumption seems almost unreal. While the yacht’s fuel efficiency is impressive, Home advances the hybrid model farther with very low sound and vibration levels that define onboard comfort. Its North Sea trials, in fact, reflected levels well below the original standards.

The trip from Holland to Gibraltar was also delightfully uneventful. “We ran it four days nonstop with the e-motors and no hiccups,” says Jenkins. “These electric motors are smaller and much more fuel efficient than traditional generators. We were able to use them instead of the generators at times. They’re definitely the way forward.”

Home is more than just a hybrid wunderkind. The yacht’s aesthetics, inside and out, are as impressive as its technological breakthroughs. Frank Laupman of Omega Architects created the yacht’s striking exterior, from the vertical bow and high bulwarks along the open bow to the floor-to-ceiling windows amidships, to a fixed swim platform at the stern. [...] Home will make its public debut at the Monaco Yacht Show in September.

Delivery of Home, first hybrid fast displacement

Heesen Yachts announced that on July 1, 2017, the world’s first Fast Displacement motor yacht equipped with hybrid propulsion was delivered to her Owner in international waters.
hybrid-heesen-yachts-yn17850-home-boat-5.jpg
HOME (formerly Project NOVA) – a 50m all aluminium motor yacht below 500GT with shallow draft – underwent intensive sea trials in the North Sea for five days in calm sea conditions with waves of up to 0.5m and light breeze.
hybrid-heesen-yachts-yn17850-home-boat-4 (1).jpg
The results are impressive: not only has HOME easily exceeded her contractual maximum speed of 16.3 knots in the traditional diesel engine mode, but also in the hybrid ‘quiet mode’. Thanks to two 127kW water-cooled DC electric shaft motors, she also exceeded the predicted speed of 9 knots with noise and vibration levels well below the Specification levels.
hybrid-heesen-yachts-yn17850-home-boat-3.jpg
HOME is not only extremely quiet, she is also highly fuel efficient. At 12 knots, she has a fuel consumption of 98 litres per hour (excluding generators) and at 10 knots in hybrid mode this further reduces to a staggering 45 litres per hour, which for a 50m yacht, displacing 295 tons and with a Gross Tonnage of 499 is an outstanding achievement. Heesen is also renowned for its meticulous attention to weight reduction, and HOME is an effortless embodiment of this; being lighter than predicted, she is the perfect demonstration of Heesen’s signature capabilities.
hybrid-heesen-yachts-yn17850-home-boat-2.jpg
This impressive performance is achieved with just two MTU 12V 2000 M61 engines of 600 kW each, which are smaller than those typically fitted on a yacht of this size. This is once again proof of the remarkable efficiency of the Fast Displacement Hull form devised by van Oossanen Naval Architects, engineered by Heesen’s in-house specialists, and perfectly executed by Heesen’s talented team of welders.
hybrid-heesen-yachts-yn17850-home-boat-1.jpg
HOME has also exceeded her range predictions measuring an impressive 4,250 miles at 12 knots – 500 more than specified and this achieved with a fuel capacity of just 45,000 litres, further underlining the remarkable efficiency of the Fast Displacement hull.
hybrid-heesen-yachts-yn17850-home-boat-4.jpg
HOME is not only extraordinary for her exceptional performance and excellent seakeeping tendencies, she is also a head-turner. Frank Laupman of Omega Architects is responsible for her striking profile. From her vertical bow and characterising spray rails, to her stern with a large fixed swim platform, wide sweeping stairs leading to the main deck, and the floor-to-ceiling glass windows, HOME is a design delight.

47m Book Ends delivered

Delivery-Book-Ends-17947.jpg

Heesen announced that on Tuesday 13 June, YN 17947 christened Book Ends was delivered to her Owner in international waters.

This 47m displacement motor yacht below 500GT was sold in May to an experienced American yachtsman.
Book Ends will spend the summer season cruising in the Mediterranean and then will cross the Atlantic to attend the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.

She is currently sailing towards Gibraltar in moderate sea conditions with long waves. The captain comments: “It feels very safe as Book Ends’ structure is solid – Dutch solid! The vessel is very responsive and accepts steering commands immediately. The use of the large rudders in conjunction with the power steering unit makes for a very quick reaction when the steering tiller is moved, even the slightest amount. We can’t wait to welcome the Owners on board their new home away from home!”

Book Ends’ exterior classic contemporary lines are designed by Frank Laupman of Omega Architects [...]. This beautiful design package encases a perfectly engineered machine built according to the highest Dutch quality standards.
Book Ends – equipped with two MTU diesel engines 8V 4000 M63 – easily exceeded the contractual speed by 0.6 knots, reaching 15.6 knots during her sea trials, and has an transatlantic range of 4,000nm at 12 knots.

Book Ends is a great new addition to the fast growing Heesen fleet!

RUYA running shot.jpg

Heesen Yachts announced that YN 17947 (Project Ruya) has been sold to an experienced American yachtsman.
The client was introduced by Thom Conboy, Heesen’s US representative, who worked closely with the in-house sales team to close the deal in record time. This is Heesen’s third yacht sale this year.
Project Ruya is yet another superb example of Heesen’s commercial strategy: thanks to its solid financial foundation, the shipyard is able to anticipate the construction of new projects in order to significantly reduce delivery times. Project Ruya will be ready for delivery to her new owners on June 19, 2017.
After spending the summer season cruising the Mediterranean she will be on display at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.
The steel-hulled, 47m displacement class below 500GT is a proven design that has been used as a platform to build 12 sister ships. No one is alike, as all of them are the expression of the individuality and unique lifestyle of their owners.[...]

Project Ruya is the third yacht sold in just seven weeks, proving once again the strength of this Dutch shipyard. Ten yachts are currently under construction at the facility in Oss, with deliveries that span through 2019.

Amore Mio Winner at the WSA 2017!

We are so proud and happy that Amore Mio won the coveted Neptune trophy in the category, semi-displacement or planing motor yachts 40m to 50m at the WSA 2017 in Florence.

18422454_736114053221472_4131380025354789581_o.jpg

According to the recent Boat International article of the WSA 2017 winners, this class tested the judges’ analytical skills and every yacht was treated to detailed scrutiny and discussion. Following this, the secret ballot proved the 45 metre Heesen Amore Mio to be their favourite. The judges admired the versatility of this vessel, which offers an unusual blend of 30-knot performance and a 2,750 nautical mile range at its 12-knot cruising speed.

Amore-Mio-Heesen-Yachts-6-1920x1170.jpg

Her owners’ requested a ‘summer house on the sea’ and the judges felt this to be well met, with spacious open decks offering admirable dining and lounging areas on two levels aft, while the foredeck offers additional sun-lounging and seating. With so much space devoted to outside areas, the interior layout had to make intelligent use of every available square metre, and the judges felt that this was achieved without compromising either the guest or crew quarters. The technical aspects of the yacht were also praised, particularly the build quality, the gyro-stabilisers that provide low speed and ‘at anchor’ stability, and the possibility to deploy life preservers at the push of a button.

Link: WSA 2017 WINNERS
We would like to congratulate the Owners, her captain, Heesen Yachts and everyone who worked tirelessly and passionately on building this magnificent yacht.
