So, remember: stay tuned, and keep yachting!  

LATEST EPISODE

PROJECT JADE

30 JUNE 2022

In this first episode of the new season of YachtTalk Specials, we are at the Heesen shipyard in Oss, where they’ve just commenced the build of Project Jade. Following Aquamarine and Sapphire, Jade is the third vessel in the 50m aluminium series. Superyacht designer Frank Laupman shows off the highlights of her exterior design, and you might also learn a thing or two about aluminium welding. Since the shipyard was founded more than 40 years ago, Heesen has used aluminium to build its ultra-fast and efficient yachts. To let you in on a few of the secrets of lightweight yacht building, naval architect Sjoerd van Herk takes us behind the scenes in Shed 6.

NEXT EPISODE:

PROJECT SERENA

In the second episode of our new season of YachtTalk Specials, we’ll be looking ahead to the introduction of Heesen’s significantly updated 55m Steel series, one of the Dutch shipyard’s most successful platforms to date. Its latest build, Project Serena, combines a fuel-efficient Fast Displacement Hull Design with an ocean-crossing range, huge interior volume and a short delivery schedule. This is all thanks to Heesen’s bold speculative build programme. New exterior features, such as the French balcony, have been added, and we’ll take a closer look at the astonishing interior penned by Italian designer Luca Dini. Heesen’s Sales Manager Robert Drontmann and Interior Design Manager Perry van Hirtum will give us an exclusive preview of this exciting new vessel.
