Heesen Yachts has selected Harrison Eidsgaard studio to design its 50-metre Steel series. At 50 metres and 499 GT, this new series will feature a Fast Displacement steel hull of great seaworthiness for optimal comfort in all sea conditions.
The 50-metre Steel series was announced at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show last October. Like all Heesen yachts, the new design will also be available with Heesen’s hybrid technology for intelligent power management and a silent cruise capability.
The layout will emphasise the connection of the outdoors to the interior, providing plenty of natural light and fresh air from sliding windows in the main saloon on the main deck. The design will also feature separate crew routing for discreet and efficient service, while with tenders and toys conveniently stored on the main deck forward, guests can enjoy the split-level aft deck terrace, overlooking an infinity pool and a large, fixed swimming platform. Six staterooms will accommodate twelve guests.
‘An earlier collaboration between Heesen and Harrison Eidsgaard resulted in the award-winning Irisha, delivered in 2017,’says Rick van de Wetering, COO at Heesen. ‘We appreciate the precision and thorough organisation of their design processes. This new 50-metre Steel series is Harrison Eidsgaard’s interpretation of Heesen’s DNA and our know-how in engineering and building successful series yachts.’
Construction to start in 2024
For the next six months, Heesen engineers and the Harrison Eidsgaard team will work together on translating this design into a perfectly engineered superyacht. Construction is scheduled to commence in summer 2024.
