Project Cosmos – Joining hull and superstructure
Light, long, fast and strong. Cosmos, the 80-metre, tri-decked yacht with four engines and more than 19,000 horsepower is a boat like no other. Her design combines the world’s most advanced naval architecture with Heesen’s unparalleled engineering know-how. She will be capable of reaching close to 30 knots once delivered and have an efficient cruising speed of 20+ knots.
A project of this scale is like a large and complex puzzle. Following the aluminium construction of our largest hull to date, we joined the hull and superstructure and installed the engines. The size of the project – 80 metres at 1,700GT – and the logistics involved are unprecedented. Thanks to the pristine Dutch organisation that characterises all of Heesen’s works, not to mention the smart logistics management, the operations ran smoothly.
