Heesen Yachts has delivered MY Lusine, YN 19360, previously known as Project Falcon. During intensive tests in the North Sea, the yacht reached the contractual speed of 17,5 knots with acoustic and vibration performance within the required limits.

Powered by two MTU 12V 4000 M65L diesel engines and equipped with full tropical air-conditioning, MY Lysine has a range of 4200 nautical miles at 13 knots. Its exterior lines were designed by Omega Architects.

Lusine is the first yacht delivered by Heesen in 2022. It will be followed later in the year by custom and semi-custom yachts. Watch a video of Lusine’s sea trials below.

Selective catalytic reduction

At 60 metres in length with an enclosed volume of approximately 1060 GT, this yacht presented several challenges for which Heesen engineers and craftsmen developed smart solutions to accommodate the owners’ and their team’s requests. To name a few: it is the first in the world to sport the selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system alongside the V12s MTU engines and the storage of the Boston Whaler tender in the aft garage is fitted with a launching ramp.

Peter van der Zanden, general manager of design, development and engineering at the shipyard: ‘Thanks to the knowledge gained during the evolution of our steel fleet over the years, our engineering and naval architecture teams easily hit all the targets. Lusine is one of the most complex steel yachts we have delivered to date, but our experience helped us find ingenious solutions and presented a solid foundation for intelligent innovation.’

Interior layout

Lusine can accommodate twelve guests in six staterooms, with the owners’ apartment on the bridge deck aft. The yacht also features a touch-and-go helipad for private use, served by an enclosed air-conditioned reception area and separate routing throughout the yacht ensures that the crew can perform their duties seamlessly without disturbing the guests.

Sinot Yacht Architecture and Design created the interior decor. Lusine is one of the most complex interiors ever crafted by the artisans of Heesen Yachts Interiors.
