Heesen Yachts has confirmed the sale of 80.07-metre (263-foot) motor yacht Project Cosmos, its largest new-build to date. It is the Dutch yard’s second contract of 2018, following the announcement of Project Falcon in February.
The hull, also known as YN19480, features exterior styling by British studio Winch Design and possesses a “muscular sportiness and timeless elegance”.
Project Cosmos will be the world’s largest and fastest full-aluminium motor yacht with conventional propeller propulsion system upon delivery in April 2022, with a predicted top speed of 29 knots.
Extensive use of glass and the combination of soft and sculpted shapes creates a “yacht packed full of contemporary charm”. Key features on board include a helipad, capable of hosting a Eurocopter EC135, which can also be converted into an al fresco cinema.
Accommodation is for up to 12 guests across six cabins, including a main-deck master suite, bridge-deck VIP and four lower-deck cabins. The crew quarters can house up to 19 people.
There is plentiful al fresco relaxation on board, with a seven-metre contra-flow pool fed by a waterfall, and a beach club with walk-around bar. Tender storage will be located on the foredeck, where Project Cosmos will carry a Winch-designed custom limousine.
Power will come from four MTU 20V diesel engines, combined with the Van Oossanen-designed fast displacement hull, to provide high-level performance and steady cruising.
At 80.07 metres, Project Cosmos eclipses Heesen’s previous flagships, the 70m Galactica Super Nova and 65m Galactica Star.
