Heesen‘s 60-meter yacht Project SkyFall was launched at the facility in Oss on January 27 and christened MY Ultra G. This is the Dutch yacht builder’s first launch of 2023.
MY Ultra G draws inspiration from Heesen’s two luxury sportfishing yachts built in the nineties – MY Obsession, the largest sportfishing yacht at the time, and MY Red Sapphire. The layout of the 60-meter vessel is conceived to create enough space to welcome friends aboard for sociable fishing adventures while allowing the master apartment to keep a necessary level of privacy, peace and quiet on the bridge deck with its private terrace. There is a jacuzzi, a large walk-in wardrobe, and an ample bathroom with a central oval bath and separate shower stall.
The main saloon features a custom wine fridge, with discrete sections at different temperatures. The media room is home to a Samsung The Wall screen 1814mm by 8063mm and an elegant games table on the main deck forward. The sundeck boasts infinity pool facing aft. To make the furry friends’ life at sea as safe and stress-free as possible, the yacht features the ‘relief area’, a self-flushing area of the side deck finished in synthetic grass, complete with sensors, cameras and sprinklers.
Thirteen crew will be on hand to take care of ten guests, with discreet separate routing allowing them to seamlessly service every area of the yacht.
MY Ultra G is fitted with four MTU 20V 4000 engines, driving four Kongsberg S90 waterjets. The outer engines, compliant with the latest Tier III environmental regulations, drive steerable jets, while the center engines operate fixed booster units. With less back-pressure and a slightly higher power output, the center engines will be utilized only for the highest speeds. Waterjet drives lower the yacht’s draft to less than three meters and reduce vibration by 40 percent compared with traditional shafts and propellers.
Thanks to its lightweight aluminum Fast Displacement Hull Form, complete with course fins, gyro stabilizers and interceptor trim plates, MY Ultra G will reach an extraordinary top speed of 37 knots in light load conditions. Her efficient FDHF hull will also deliver a much smoother, flatter ride compared to a conventional semi-displacement shape, while its extra volume offers plenty of space for equipment and amenities. Three gyro-stabilizers will keep the yacht comfortable at low speeds.
Currently, MY Ultra G is undergoing system commissioning testing, after that she will leave Oss for intensive trials in the North Sea.
