Explore. Experience. Xventure.

Heesen teamed up with renowned British studio Winch Design to create the ultimate explorer yacht, conceived to take adventurous owners off the beaten path in seven-star comfort, rugged but luxurious in style and high efficiency thanks to FDHF hull design.

First impressions

Floor-to-ceiling glass windows afford views out to sea from the main deck guest suites and owner’s full-beam stateroom, as well as the upper deck saloon. A spectacular glass-ceilinged winter garden on the
observation deck provides sprawling vistas from every angle with a swimming pool forward. Natural light shines through the central staircase skylight, which is directly connected to a second winter garden and aft
deck lounging area.
