Heesen announced the delivery of Arkadia. Previously known as Project Triton, YN 18850, the yacht is the first of five vessels scheduled for delivery in 2021 by the Dutch shipyard. The yacht was sold in October 2020 by David Johnson of Denison Yachting, who introduced the client and worked closely with Thom Conboy of Heesen USA, and the sales team at the shipyard in Oss to sign the deal.
We look forward to seeing Arkadia join her sister ship Omaha on our side of the ocean. American customers appreciate the quality of a Dutch pedigree yacht, and the Heesen fleet is growing in North America and the Bahamas. – Thom Conboy
The second yacht in Heesen’s 50-metre steel displacement class, Arkadia’s exterior lines were penned by Clifford Denn while her luxurious interior were created by Reymond Langton. Her full-displacement, round-bilge hull design, with its drag-cheating bulbous bow, provides cruising comfort and seakeeping. The yacht can achieve top speed of 15 knots, and she has a transoceanic range of 3,800 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 13 knots. At just under the 500 Gross Ton threshold, she is spacious for her length.
I would like to thank Heesen for their support and coordination in making this project happen. The yard worked tirelessly to ensure the yacht is ready for the owners and their family to enjoy cruising this summer. A special thanks also to the owners’ team on board who have been an integral part of the success of this project. This is the most recent new construction sale for Denison Yachting, and we are excited to continue working closely with Heesen to facilitate the sale of future new builds. – David Johnson from Denison Yachting
Ten guests can be accommodated in five luxurious suites. The generous deck spaces will ensure maximum enjoyment of the great outdoors, from alfresco dining to relaxing in the sun or getting close to the water in her lavish beach club.
To deliver a superyacht during a pandemic, Heesen appointed a dedicated team to manage the handover from the shipyard to the owner and his staff. The team assists the yacht’s management company and her crew in dealing with all the regulatory and certifying authorities. The handover team also includes commissioning engineers, shipyard captains, and dedicated interior experts who work closely with the yacht’s crew.
