Heesen has provided a construction update on their latest 56m/184ft fast displacement superyacht, PROJECT NEPTUNE: As of the 25th of November, the steel hull has been joined to the superstructure at their facilities in Oss.
British design firm H2 developed the pre-engineered FDHF platform to create the sleek exterior profile with a timeless quality that echoes the styling and proportions traditionally used by Heesen. The hull is painted with metallic silver on the transom, wing station and mast that will differentiate PROJECT NEPTUNE from other superyachts.
The tenders are stored on the foredeck and hidden by hatches for a clean appearance, which leaves the lower deck free for a beach club with storage for water toys and an internal staircase connects to the terrace of the main deck aft. The deep 3.5m/11ft swim platform allows for easy access in and out of the water and the area uses the same teak decks with blue backlit panels and bamboo detailing as the other decks.
The owner chose Reymond Langton Design to create a light modern concept that uses detailing and artwork to form remarkable and elegant living spaces within the 770GT interior. Light fiddle-back sycamore and taupe leathers are complemented by bronze inlays and white onyx following geometric motifs for a clean and immaculate appearance, and each room is defined by its own colourful accents found in the fabrics and soft furnishings. Custom artwork aboard is made from glass, gypsum, resin and bronze to enhance the glamour of the social spaces and the occasion.
For accommodation, there is an expansive 85m²/279ft² owner’s apartment on the main deck forward that offers a comprehensive list of features, including a private gym with steam room, an office and en-suite bathroom with a central bath tub and shower accessible through his and hers walk-in wardrobes.
As well as the main deck Master suite, there will be lower deck accommodation of four king-size cabins with en-suites for up to eight guests. There is also a fifth cabin located on the bridge deck. The 13 crew will use separate crew corridors to ensure all guests have impeccable service.
Luxury yacht PROJECT NOVA is expected to be launched and delivered in 2019.
