Dutch shipyard Heesen has announced the launch of Triton, their second unit in the 50-metre Steel Class. Having left her outfitting shed, the superyacht is getting ready for sea trials in the North Sea. Triton is a true blue water motor yacht with a traditional full-displacement steel hull below the 500GT threshold. Designed and engineered by Heesen’s in-house team of experts, Triton is built according to the highest Dutch quality standards.
Defined by a flared and bulbous bow, and an easily driven hull form, she glides through water with ease. Powered by twin MTU 8V4000 M63 engines she will reach a top speed of 15 knots and have a transoceanic range of 3,800 nautical miles at the cruising speed of 12 knots.
For the 50-metre Steel Class, Clifford Denn created a bold and elegant profile characterised by flowing curves with elements inspired by classic car design. Blending practicality with luxurious detail, the layout of Project Triton has been optimised to deliver the largest possible volume while remaining under the 500GT threshold.
The yacht will be able to accommodate up to ten guests in five large suites, with the master on the main deck forward and the four guest cabins on the lower deck. Triton offers an elegant beach club with wellness area and guests will have access to the yacht’s amenities, including a range of toys and tenders conveniently stored on the foredeck.
The interior design was devised by British studio Reymond Langton, who have created a contemporary interior defined by a linear and clean environment. The sophisticated yet casual design makes Triton the ideal yacht for enjoying the excitement of the outdoor life at sea, combined with the tranquillity of a peaceful retreat to unwind and relax.
Triton’s construction is on schedule and she is available for sale and ready for delivery at the end of February 2020.
