Designed with an FHDF hull form by Van Oossanen and constructed entirely in aluminium, she will be delivered to her new owner in April 2022.
The sale of PROJECT COSMOS represents the second superyacht contract confirmed with Heesen so far in 2018, with last year’s record seeing the sale of six luxury yachts. Once completed, she will become the company’s flagship yacht, superseding 70m/230ft mega yacht GALACTICA SUPER NOVA which was launched in 2016. In addition, she will also become the world’s largest and fastest aluminium superyacht by using a conventional propulsion system (4 x MTU 20v diesel engines) to reach a top speed of 29 knots.
British studio Winch Design was selected to produce exterior styling that kept the quintessential power and presence of a Heesen motor yacht while streamlining the appearance and creating something unprecedented within the luxury yacht market.
Among her features will be a forward tender garage with a full-custom limousine tender from Winch Design: The stern will be left clear for a spacious beach club, which will contain a sunken walk-around bar, an extensive transom and two large side-platforms.
On deck there will be a 7m/23ft pool boasting contra-jets, a waterfall and a glass bottom, while the deck above will hold a fully-certified helicopter landing pad intended for a Eurocopter EC135. When the helicopter is stored away, the helipad becomes an impressive alfresco cinema. Indoors, a crystal lift (elevator) provides elegance and practicality for guests wishing to access the sundeck from as far down as the lower deck accommodation.
The interior will be a considerable 1,700 GT and is designed to accommodate up to 12 guests over six cabins, with the Master suite placed on the main deck forward, the VIP stateroom with an adjacent private studio on the bridge deck, and the rest of the guest accommodation on the lower deck. The crew accommodation is designed to sleep up to 19, with separate access to guest areas.
When launched, PROJECT COSMOS will be a state-of-the-art superyacht pushing the boundaries of design and engineering, further exemplifying Heesen as one of Europe’s premier shipyards.
