Heesen Yachts is a renowned Dutch shipbuilding company specializing in custom-built superyachts. Since its establishment in 1978, it has launched over 170 yachts, many of which have received prestigious awards. The company is widely recognized as a global leader in designing, constructing, and engineering all-aluminum yachts.
Innovation is at the core of Heesen Yachts' philosophy. Notably, they built Octopussy, the world's fastest superyacht at the time, achieving a record top speed of 53.17 knots in 1988. Heesen Yachts continues to set new standards in custom aluminum and steel motor yachts, with their aluminum range being particularly popular among superyacht buyers worldwide.
Their collaboration with Van Oossanen Naval Architects resulted in groundbreaking advancements, including the Fast Displacement Hull Form (FDHF). This patented concept offers increased efficiency across various speeds, providing improved onboard comfort and exceptional sea-keeping capabilities.
On Project Cosmos, their largest project at 80 meters, Heesen implemented further innovations such as the patented Backbone for added stiffness and the Rolls-Royce Promas system, integrating propeller and rudder into a single unit. These cutting-edge features ensure that Heesen Yachts continues to push the boundaries of superyacht design and construction.
