65m Aluminium: Project Saturnus

Current Build Phase


The use and requirements of the future client determine the size, speed and GT of the yacht. After the first layout we start developing the general arrangement and building specs, followed by tank tests and engineering.

Staggering deck space

Saturnus is a 65-metre yacht with a Fast Displacement Hull Form. As a result, she has achieved what was considered impossible when thinking along conventional lines. Fortunately, Heesen does not. In a world where a 5 per cent gain is considered a triumph, this hull is more efficient than any other yet tested.

First impressions

Leave aside the technical and enjoy the lifestyle. Deck space is staggering with over 267 square metre on her three upper decks. The foredeck is both a helipad and sun terrace set over gull wing doors that open to reveal a full-beam tender garage.
