The next generation of Heesen yachts
At Heesen, we do not sit on our laurels. We like to embrace the future by crafting it. This is how the new 50-metre series came to be. The sales and marketing department and our engineers put their brains together to conceive the brief for a yacht that will stand the test of time. Harrison Eidsgaard put their pencils to paper inspired by our team’s vision.
Heesen's new 50m Steel is a jewel box filled with the latest and coolest design and technological innovations.
At 50 metres and 499 GT, this new series will feature a Fast Displacement steel hull of great seaworthiness for optimal comfort in all sea conditions. Like all Heesen yachts, the new design will also be available with Heesen's hybrid technology for intelligent power management and a silent cruise capability.
British studio Harrison Eidsgaard penned a profile with sharp, modern lines paired with low bulwarks that open the view and tie the environment into the yacht's design. The layout emphasises the connection of the outdoors to the interior, providing plenty of natural light and fresh air from sliding windows in the main saloon on the main deck. Full-height windows and the absence of fashion plates maximise the light flooding the interiors. The design also features separate crew routing for discreet and efficient service, while with tenders and toys conveniently stored on the main deck forward, guests can enjoy the split-level aft deck terrace, overlooking an infinity pool and a large, fixed swimming platform. Six staterooms will accommodate twelve guests.
"The design of Heesen's 50-metre steel exudes confidence," comments Peder Eidsgaard. "In keeping with the company DNA, it translates the fast and sporty look of the aluminium yachts into a dynamic, agile form. The profile is not radical or extravagant but refined and timeless. This is a yacht conceived to stand the test of time."
"The keys to a successful layout in a 499GT yacht are simplicity and versatility. We want to achieve the maximum possible lifestyle space for the guests while ensuring that the crew have the perfect working space to deliver a top-notch experience. Features such as the infinity pool or the unique coffee table on the sundeck, which doubles as an atrium skylight, will be focal points that invite guests to gather together. The sundeck will be large enough to hold up to 20 guests for outdoor dining. Hospitality is a central element in yachting, and we wanted to ensure that visiting day guests can be properly entertained too."
Similarly to our more voluminous superyachts, the service onboard Heesen's new 50-metre steel will be seamless thanks to a carefully thought routing for the crew to assist the owners and their guests discretely. Twelve guests are accommodated in six spacious staterooms, with the master suite located on the main deck forward. Social areas are at the heart of this design and will deliver the best entertainment possible.
