Heesen Yachts’ models fall into distinct model ranges.
Heesen fast semi-displacement aluminium super yachts are Heesen’s trademark, this made the brand so very well-known worldwide. Equipped with powerful diesel engines and a hard-chine hull, Heesen fast superyacht is an object of desire for any experienced yachtsman.
Round-bilge hulls and economic diesel engines ensure unprecedented navigational comfort. Full-displacement Heesen Yachts line highlight is a 50-meter steel yacht penned by renowned designer Clifford Denn.
The innovative patented fast displacement hull allows the vessel to travel faster and cover more distance, burning less fuel, compared to more traditional hull form. Providing the comfort of a full displacement yacht with more agility and range, fast displacement is the best of both worlds, becoming an optimal choice for a smart-thinking yacht owner.
Alongside the existing models, Heesen builds full custom vessels, engineered to a need of an owner who wants his yacht built to his own wishes.
Each luxury yacht builder has distinctive points for which this shipyard surpasses other builders. A Heesen superyacht is an excellent pick for those who want to navigate with high speeds in total comfort.
Most valued for speedy semi-displacement super yachts, the Heesen shipyard is for those who want to go fast if needed. With a hull and superstructure in lightweight aluminium, a semi-displacement Heesen yacht will reach exhilarating 25 knots top speed and more, when trimmed down to a humbler 14 knots, will cover distances of up to 3,500 nautical miles. A lightweight aluminium hull permits the Heesen yacht to enter the most shallow waters, making a semi-displacement yacht an excellent choice for Bahamas cruises and shallow waters of the Med. While being built, Heesen controls the weight of each section of the hull to ensure that the vessel will meet or exceed the contractual speed.
Aluminium is not the only material for Heesen Yachts, as the Dutch shipyard builds steel yachts as well. If you are an environmentally conscious buyer, you can go for a Heesen with a hybrid power plant. The first Heesen yacht to get a hybrid setup was a whisper-quiet superyacht Home.
A patented "Fast Displacement Hull Form" is another striking feature a Heesen yacht can get. This hull form makes a Heesen yacht very efficient, allowing it to reach cruising speed with less powerful engines, with lower fuel consumption to cover even greater sea distances.
Once a new hull and superstructure reaches outfitting stage, Heesen has its own interior division, using the workforce crafting the impeccable state-of-the-art interior in-house, without subcontractors
Heesen Yachts know that time is of the essence for the owner, each Heesen yacht in build is handed over exactly on the scheduled date.
Being a financially powerful company, Heesen builds some of their most popular models on speculation, decimating wait time. The future owner still has time to customise the vessel’s interiors, adding a personal touch and making the yacht his own.
Every Heesen yacht is delivered in a turnkey condition at the time of handover. Once the crew is there, owner’s supplies are on board, the owner can enjoy his brand new Heesen yacht immediately.
Over its 40-year history, Heesen has developed a reputation for building innovative super yachts that have pushed boundaries in design, speed and efficiency. From record-breakers such as Octopussy to more recent innovators such as Galactica Star, Galactica Supernova and Home, Heesen’s facility in Oss continues to play host to remarkable superyacht projects. The latest project to draw on this extraordinary heritage is Cosmos, an 80.7-metre aluminium superyacht that will push the boundaries even further. With a designed top speed close to 30 knots and an efficient cruising speed above 20 knots, Cosmos will use a development of the Fast Displacement Hull Form (FDHF) coupled with innovative construction and advanced propulsion solutions to set new standards for large aluminium yachts.
