Heesen Yachts joined the hull and superstructure of YN 20150, code-named Oslo24, on 24 September. Just before this, the two MTU 8V 4000 M63 IMO III diesel engines were installed. The 50-metre steel yacht is due for delivery in March 2024.
The owners have selected the Heesen hybrid propulsion system, for the ultimate luxury of silent cruising at up to 8.5 knots.
A “smart custom” yacht, Project Oslo24 is said to exemplify Heesen‘s ability to build yachts with the best possible balance between quality, customisation and delivery time.
Based on the design of Heesen’s 50-metre steel series, with flowing lines by Clifford Denn, Project Oslo24 is the true expression of its owners’ yachting knowledge and experience. They selected this proven Heesen design as the foundation for a yacht that will be a true reflection in every detail of their lifestyle and personal taste.
‘Working with such passionate clients who enjoy every step in the construction of their yacht is a true blessing,’ says Rick van de Wetering, Heesen’s COO. ‘Their extensive knowledge and genuine interest in the technology and craftsmanship that go into their yacht are a source of inspiration for our entire team. We were delighted by their presence at the marriage of the hull and superstructure, an important step in every yacht’s build.’
