When you want the best of both luxury and performance in a superyacht, Heesen yachts sets the bar high. You won’t have to compromise on any features that you would expect from a superyacht designed and built by Dutch shipyard Heesen yachts. The newest superyacht to join the line of Heesen superyachts, is the Heesen YN 18151, which is expected to be delivered in the spring of 2018. The Heesen YN 18151 marks a first for Heseen yachts in a few areas, one of which is the design of the body. Heesen has joined together the hull and superstructure of the Heesen YN 18151, a design so different that it will surely have the yachting world talking.

Who is Frans Heesen?

Frans Heeseen founded Heesen Yachts in the year 1978 when he purchased the Stryker Boat shipyard in the Netherlands. Original plans were to use the old shipyard for another business but Heesen soon changed his mind and decided to continue using the shipyard for what it was intended, building boats, and with that decision, Heesen Yachts was born.

In 1978, a year after Frans Heesen purchaased the shipyard, the first yacht bearing the Heesen name was launched. This 66 ft (20 metere) luxury yacht was named Amigo and it boldly set the precedence for the countless Heesen superyachts that would follow for the next, nearly 4 decades. One big milestone for Heesen Yachts came in 1990 when by then, Heesen had successfully built over 25 yachts that measured 89 ft (27 meteres) in length. This earned Heesen the recognition and reputation as the world’s leader of custom built yachts.

How Heesen superyachts are built

Highly experienced professionals oversee the construction of every yacht which begins with machine-cut aluminum that is precisely welded and assembled into both the hulls and superstructures. Heesen technology custom tailors each and every yacht in his fleet with features to give every yacht owner the experience of a lifetime. Heesen yachts are designed to move flawlessly through the water with as little vertical movement as possible to keep you and your passengers relaxed and comfortable.

Heesen was the first Dutch ship builder to use aluminum in the hulls of his ships, three times thicker than the aluminum found on the body of a jumbo jet. This innovative technology set him apart as a leader in construction, engineering and design in the world of motor yachts. Heesen constructs his yachts with the choice of three different hulls; Semi-Displacement, Displacement and the Fast Displacement Hull Form, which uses both steel and/or aluminum.

The use of naval architecture for unprecedented performance is stringently tested to make sure each yacht performs to its highest abilities and stability as well as it gives you the highest level of comfort. Heesen uses conventional diesel engines which allows his motor yachts to achieve a range of 4,000 miles while using 30% less fuel.

This luxurious yacht was designed with the ultimate indulgence and comfort in mind to accommodate up to 20 people; 10 guests along with 10 crew members. As a first, the interior and exterior of the Heesen YN 18151 boasts the custom designs of Eidsgaard Design.

Not much has been exposed of all the details of the layout of the YN 18151, as of yet as the yacht is still under construction, but the details that have been made available include the set-up of the sleeping cabins. The owner’s suite is traditionally found on the main deck and this remains the case for the YN 18151. The owner’s cabin is designed with a balcony and sliding glass doors to allow for fresh air to flow throughout the cabin and open up the suite with more natural light and beautiful views of the water and scenery as you cruise.

The design of the bow is the most important part of any large yacht. The way it projects will determine the way the yacht handles and performs. It is critical to design the bow with the highest quality structural materials and optimum angle to give you the control and performance you expect from a superyacht. This is precisely why Heesen used aluminum with maximum thickness for the bow and hull on the YN 18151; it is three times as thick as the aluminum used on a jumbo jet.

The Heesen YN 18151 was constructed to look and perform like no other yacht yet not compromise the owner on style or luxury. To start, the exterior will standout with the extensive use of curved glass that will the yacht the look of a fighter jet. Other exterior features are designed to maximize performance. Weight is a critical component in the design. The Heesen YN 18151 was designed with a Semi-Displacement hull for ultimate speed and control of the yacht. Before the yacht is delivered to its owner, it will be put through intense testing in the North Sea.
