Heesen has announced the sale of its first contract for 2018, a full custom 60-metre new build superyacht project featuring exterior design by Omega Architects.
Heesen 19360 Falcon rendering
The 60-metre Fast Displacement steel-hulled motor yacht, named Project Falcon, is scheduled for delivery in 2021 and will be the largest steel yacht built by Heesen to date.
Her clean and chiselled exterior lines evident from the renderings are by Omega Architects who have also introduced an innovative design feature to embellish the profile: the bird’s wing. This 'bird's wing' is a multi-faceted shape which integrates the three decks (main, bridge and sundeck) without interfering with the uninterrupted horizontal lines of the glazed windows.
As evident from the rendering, Project Falcon pairs a distinctive profile with Heesen's typically sporty elegance.
The 60-metre superyacht will have a gross tonnage of 1,060GT, with floor-to-ceiling windows and aft doors coupled with lowered bulwarks to ensure panoramic views and plenty of natural light flooding the interior.
On board, Project Falcon will accommodate 16 guests across four twin suites on the lower deck, a VIP connected with a twin stateroom and media room on the main deck forward, a VIP amidships on the bridge deck, and a master stateroom on the bridge deck aft equipped with 180-degree panoramic views and a private aft terrace with a whirlpool. A crew of 14 will also be accommodated on board.
Powered by twin MTU 12V4000 M65L diesel engines, Project Falcon will reach a top speed of 17.5 knots, with a range of 4,200 nautical miles at 13 knots.
