Heesen Yachts has announced the sale of its first contract of 2018 in the shape of Project Falcon, a full-custom 60-metre (197-foot) motoryacht for delivery in 2021.
At 60m, YN 19360 is the largest steel yacht built by Heesen to date. Omega Architects is responsible for her exterior design, which is made up of clean, chiselled lines and a new innovative design feature to embellish her profile, named ‘the bird’s wing’.
According to Heesen, “This eye-catching multi-faceted shape visually integrates three decks (main, bridge and sundeck) without interfering with the uninterrupted horizontal lines of the glazed windows. The result is a strong and muscular 60-metre yacht with a gross tonnage of 1,060GT.” She pairs a “highly distinctive character with Heesen’s heritage of sporty elegance”.
On board, Project Falcon has floor-to-ceiling windows and aft doors coupled with lowered bulwarks for panoramic views out and plenty of natural light.
Accommodation is in place for 16 guests across four twin suites on the lower deck, a VIP connected with twin stateroom and media room on the main deck forward, a further VIP amidships on the bridge deck, and a master stateroom on the bridge deck, equipped with 180-degree panoramic views and private aft terrace with whirlpool. 14 crew will support operations on board discreetly, thanks to separated stairs and plenty of storage, with additional dry and cold storage on the tank deck.
Powered by two MTU 12V4000 M65L diesel engines, and with a Fast Displacement Hull Form (FDHF), Project Falcon will be able to reach a top speed of 17.5 knots, with a range of 4,200 nautical miles at 13 knots.
Heesen celebrated a record year in 2017, with six contracts sold, with Project Falcon the first order for the new year. She will be built to Lloyd’s rules and regulations for the classification of Special Service Craft [+] 100A1, SSC Yacht G6, LMC, UMS.
