[dropcap]H[/dropcap]eesen starts the new year with the sale of a new contract, a full custom 60-metre Fast Displacement steel hulled motoryacht.
Under the name “Project Falcon”, the new 60 metre represents the largest steel yacht built by Heesen to date. The exterior lines are by Omega Architects, who have introduced an innovative design feature to embellish the profile: the bird’s wing. This eye-catching multi-faceted shape visually integrates three decks without interfering with the uninterrupted horizontal lines of the glazed windows. The result is a strong and muscular 60-metre yacht with a Gross Tonnage of 1,060GT. Floor-to-ceiling windows and aft doors coupled with lowered bulwarks ensure panoramic views and plenty of natural light flooding the vast interior.
Powered by two MTU 12V4000 M65L diesel engines, Project Falcon will reach a top speed of 17.5 knots, with a range of 4,200 nautical miles at 13 knots. Thanks to her Fast Displacement Hull Form she will be extremely efficient and seaworthy.
Sixteen guests will be accommodated in four twin suites on the lower deck, a VIP connected with a twin stateroom and media room on the main deck forward, a VIP amidships on the bridge deck, and a master stateroom on the bridge deck aft equipped with unobstructed 180-degree panoramic views and a private aft terrace with a whirlpool. Fourteen crew will be able to service all areas thanks to separated stairs, and will have plenty of storage thanks to the additional dry and cold storage on the tank deck.
Project Falcon pairs a highly distinctive character with Heesen’s heritage of sporty elegance.
