Heesen Yachts invited the leading international superyacht and aviation design company Harrison Eidsgaard studio to design the highly anticipated 50-meter Steel series that will feature a Fast Displacement steel hull of great seaworthiness for optimal comfort in all sea conditions. The new design will also be available with Heesen’s hybrid technology for intelligent power management and a silent cruise capability. The layout will emphasize the connection of the outdoors to the interior. Plenty of natural light and fresh air will come from sliding windows in the main saloon on the main deck. The design will also feature separate crew routing for discreet service. Tenders and toys will be conveniently stored on the main deck forward. The split-level aft deck terrace will overlook an infinity pool and a fixed swimming platform. Six staterooms will accommodate twelve guests.
Like all new beginnings, this is a very thrilling moment. Engineering such an exciting design is exhilarating and will pose some interesting challenges for our engineers and naval architects. But at Heesen, we enjoy overcoming challenges – our team of smart minds, led by Peter van der Zanden, will deliver another exceptional superyacht. We appreciate the precision and thoroughgoing organisation of their design processes. This new 50-metre Steel series is Harrison Eidsgaard’s interpretation of Heesen’s DNA and our know-how in engineering and building successful series yachts. – Rick van de Wetering, COO at Heesen.
An earlier collaboration between Heesen and Harrison Eidsgaard resulted in the award-winning Irisha, delivered in 2017.
Heesen’s Marketing Director, Mark van Heffen, worked closely with the engineering and production teams to create a detailed brief. The result is a 50-meter series concept that combines Harrison Eidsgaard’s creative flair with Heesen’s industrial DNA.
The design of Heesen’s 50-metre steel exudes confidence. In keeping with the company DNA, it translates the fast and sporty look of the aluminium yachts into dynamic and agile forms. The profile is not radical or extravagant but refined and timeless. This is a yacht conceived to stand the test of time. The keys to a successful layout in a 499GT yacht are simplicity and versatility. We want to achieve the maximum possible lifestyle space for the guests while ensuring that the crew have the perfect working space to deliver a top-notch experience. Features such as the infinity pool, or the unique coffee table on the sundeck, which doubles as an atrium skylight, will be focal points that invite guests to gather together. The sundeck will be large enough to hold up to 20 guests for outdoor dining. Hospitality is such an important element in yachting, and we wanted to ensure that visiting day-guests can be properly entertained too. – Peder Eidsgaard
For the next six months, Heesen engineers and the Harrison Eidsgaard team will work together on developing the superyacht. Construction is scheduled to begin in the Summer of 2024.
