Genesis - 2023


At 80.07 metres, 1,700 Gross Tons and with a top speed of 29 knots, Genesis, previously Project Cosmos is the world’s largest and fastest all-aluminium motoryacht with conventional propeller propulsion system. Winch Design created a streamlined yacht with innovative design traits but still retaining the Heesen DNA: muscular sportiness and timeless elegance. The design, engineering, technology and craftsmanship in this extraordinary yacht represent a milestone not just for Heesen, but for the yachting industry in general.

First impressions

Some of the most notable features on board Genesis are the fully-rated helicopter landing pad for a Eurocopter EC135 that transforms into an outdoor cinema with stunning effect; the crystal elevator from the lower deck to the sun deck for chic accessibility; the breath-taking seven-metre pool with contra-jets for swimming, paired with a waterfall and glass bottom; the sumptuous beach club with a sunken walk-around bar and large transom and side platforms. To give her the necessary longitudinal strength, we designed and patented a complex, full-length structural reinforcement system that we call The Backbone. Sinot Yacht Architecture & Design and Heesen Yachts have taken this project to the next level of quality, to create our most intricate and precious interiors so far.

Step aboard

Genesis is a testament to the pinnacle of design, engineering, technology, and craftsmanship of Heesen. The interior design of this project takes inspiration from nature, particularly natural mathematics like the Fibonacci sequence, shaping the core of its architectural aesthetics. Clear, graphic lines define a clean, uncluttered space, creating an environment that exudes architectural excellence. Exceptional materials like backlit onyx, straw marquetry, and crystal glass panels are skillfully integrated within these lines, accentuating their innate beauty. The interior is further adorned with custom-designed furniture crafted from a combination of glass, marble, metal, and various wood types, adding the final touches to the overall décor.
