Heesen Yachts from Oss, the Netherlands takes part in the Dubai International Boat Show and will present YN 20555 Project Serena there. It is the latest yacht in the company’s 55-metre steel class and will be available for delivery in November 2024.
The Dubai International Boat Show takes place from 9 to 13 March.
‘This is the first boat show held in the brand new Dubai Harbour, the region’s largest marina,’ comments Heesen’s CCO Friso Visser. ‘It is inspired by the Gulf’s long tradition of boatbuilding and seafaring and will further enhance Dubai’s position as a global yachting hotspot. It will be home to many superyachts, and it will most certainly generate new business – which we are ready to welcome, thanks to our partnership with Behnemar (Heesen’s local representative, Ed.).’
Heesen will be presenting YN 20555 Project Serena. With exterior lines from the drawing board of Frank Laupman at Omega Architects and interior décor by Luca Dini Design and Architecture, the 55-metre steel yacht is currently under construction at the shipyard in Oss. Serena will be presented at the show with a six-cabin layout – but the 55-metre engineering platform offers the possibility of numerous custom options thanks to its enclosed volume of 760 GT.
‘Heesen’s 55-metre steel incorporates a unique combination of qualities in terms of size, features, and value,’ says Tim Trenker of Behnemar. ‘Serena sports an appealing exterior style, which mixes modern with traditional, while her Dutch pedigree, high level of quality and perfect market positioning make her an ideal yacht for Middle Eastern clients. And of course, the customer will also benefit from a short delivery time, thanks to Heesen’s speculative build programme.’
