Heesen Creates A Timeless New Classic, Designed To Cruise The Globe And Explore New Horizons
Edited by Shereen Shabnam
Heesen builds some of the finest yachts with exceptional standards of engineering, outstanding technology and meticulous attention to detail. Research and innovation are part of the Heesen DNA, with the company continually investing in R&D and new technologies.
Specialising in truly bespoke design, each Heesan yacht is custom-built to the highest standards of luxury and performance to reflect her owner’s individuality and currently, Heesen is thrilled to reveal Project Triton, the second in its coveted 50-metre Steel Class.
An on-spec build from Heesen’s bold and successful business model, she is scheduled to undergo sea trials and will then become available to purchase; raring and ready to cruise by a lucky owner soon.
At 50 metres, Project Triton is a true blue water motor yacht, designed to provide access to far-flung and remote destinations, with a transoceanic range of 3,800 miles. This gives ultimate freedom for owners looking to cross the Atlantic, or whip around the Mediterranean without stopping for fuel.
Powered by two MTU 8V4000 M63 main engines and featuring a full-displacement steel hull, she reaches a top speed of 15 knots, with a cruising speed of 12 knots.
Internationally renowned designer Clifford Denn penned her exterior lines, creating an elegant profile characterised by flowing curves with elements inspired by classic car design including Austin Healey, Old Porsche and Alfa Spider. Born to turn-heads, her flared bulbous bow and majestic profile won’t go unnoticed off the coast of the South of France, or in the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean.
A 68-square-metre sun deck complete with Jacuzzi, al fresco dining area and sun loungers promise the best of the yachting lifestyle. For entertaining, guests are welcomed to the 78-square-metre aft deck, an area complemented by the indoor-outdoor sky lounge. The tender and toys are conveniently stored on the fore deck and guests can enjoy the chic beach club with wellness area at the back.
British studio Reymond Langton has created a contemporary interior, using cool tones and pastel shades to create a linear and clean environment. The sophisticated yet relaxed design offers a tranquil and peaceful ambience in which to retreat to and unwind, while exploring the exciting outdoor life at sea.
Blending practicality with luxurious detail, the layout of Project Triton has been optimised to deliver spacious interior volume, while remaining under the 500GT threshold. Ten guests sleep in five large suites, with the master on the main deck forward and the four large guest cabins on the lower deck.
Built and engineered by Heesen’s in-house team of experts, Triton is of the highest Dutch quality standards. A peerless combination of the best of building and the best of design.
