Dutch shipyard builder Heesen Yachts has revealed Project Maximus, the new revolutionary 83-metres concept designed by Clifford Denn. The yacht is defined by a hugely flexible platform that offers optimum distribution of both interior and exterior volumes and spaces to achieve a long, low, sleek and narrow vessel. Providing good wind protection for all aft decks and optimal hydrodynamic performance for which Heesen is renowned, this flexible platform can accommodate up to five guests, with the option to be configured as 2 x VIP and 1 x guest by opening linking doors, in addition to a stunning Owner’s suite.[justified_image_grid preset=18 ids=121788,121790,121784,121785,121787,121789 caption=off]
Inspired by Clifford Denn’s experience designing commercial passenger vessels where the Wheel house is located forward and under the Passenger decks, Maximus puts the owner experience at the fore. Central to the design is the 100 per cent use of private exterior deck for owner and guest, stretching an unprecedented full length of the boat.
When compared with other boats of its size it has an enormous pool, huge external deck areas, and all with the same internal volumes as a normal 83 metres. It’s large boat thinking that puts the owner’s needs first. – Clifford Denn
An almost vertical bow enables an extended waterline length and so allows the crash bulkhead to move forward, gaining interior space and volume. This frees up further exterior space at the stern of the vessel, including an impressive pool area, stunning waterfall features and a large bating platform. Wide stairs link all external decks, and a fantastic cosy covered external lounge/dining area is located just forward of the pool on the Main deck.
