The 57th Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show has welcomed 100,000 visitors to the world’s largest in-water exhibition of the most expensive toys. Among these was an all-aluminium 138ft Project Cayman from Heesen Yachts which is designed specifically for the American market, due to its draft which makes it ideal for the Bahamas and reduced fuel consumption. The superyacht is the collaborative effort of Heesen Yachts, Omega Architects and Hot Lab.
She’s Hot Lab, Heesen and Omega Architects: Dutch quality with Italian style. The best combination! – Antonio Romano, Partner at Hot Lab Yacht & Design
The Project Cayman was developed after in-depth market research about the growing demand for a shallow draft, fast displacement full aluminium motoryachts. Arranged over three full decks, she provides the extra volume and comfort of a tri-decker in a design package of less than 400GT. Among her most notable features are the ample beach club and a spacious sky lounge on the bridge deck which provides the access to the aft deck.
Designed with a Fast Displacement Hull Form, twin MTU engines and lightweight construction, the Project Cayman superyacht offers top speeds of 25 knots whilst a modest draft of 2.15 metres makes her ideal for cruising in shallow waters.
