Special 4: Sparta design special with Winch design
When the owner of Project Sparta first saw Heesen’s yacht concept Avanti introduced at the 2018 Monaco Yacht Show, her sleek lines immediately impressed: this was the yacht he wanted to build for his family. Winch Design and Heesen are now turning that dream into reality. At 67 metres and with an internal volume of approximately 1,200 Gross Tons, Project Sparta is the largest steel-hulled displacement motor yacht built by Heesen to date. The full-beam salon on the main deck – an unusual feature on a vessel of this size – makes Project Sparta a true head turner. Jim Dixon, Director of Yachts and James Russell, Associate, Yacht Exteriors at Winch Design share their thoughts and inside stories on this intriguing project.
