Heesen Yachts has launched its largest steel motoryacht to date. The 67-metre full-custom yacht, named MY Sparta (YN 20067), hit the water on 9 June.

Sparta grew out of the Project Avanti concept which Heesen presented with Winch Design at the Monaco Yacht Show in 2018. The design has remained true to the original concept, with only minor adjustments made to the swimming pool.

Sparta sports a classic Snow White livery with a contemporary touch: metallic Venetian red and metallic anthracite grey accents. The 1200-GT yacht’s profile is characterised by a reverse bow and thermobonded tinted glass from bow to stern. Heesen built very low hull supports to ensure smooth and safe launching.

Sparta will now undergo the final commissioning phases while in Heesen’s harbour before heading to the North Sea for intensive sea trials.

Layout and interior

On the main deck aft, a full-beam main saloon connects with the low, open-air beach terrace. A transformer passerelle platform provides easy access to the water and there is a 6.5-metre infinity pool.

The yacht’s outdoor spaces feature custom-designed furniture by Winch Design and crafted by Siebensee and Leerdam. Sparta’s matching custom limo tender, a mini version of the mothership, is conveniently stored, along with the water toys, behind the gullwing doors of the forward garage.

There are two separate owner’s suites on a private deck and four guest suites on the main deck. A movable partition separates the forward suites to create a full-beam VIP or a large playroom. A staircase and glass elevator serve all three decks. The lower deck is home to a 65-m2 wellness area.

Sparta’s interior features cabinetwork created by Heesen Yachts Interiors, with technical areas and crew quarters crafted at the shipyard. Heesen is one of the few shipyards in the world to own its fine cabinet-making company in Winterswijk in the eastern Netherlands, some 100 kilometres from Oss.
