Heesen Yachts announces a signed contract for their latest new build concept, a 213-foot aluminum hull design scheduled for delivery in June 2013. Following positive results of tank tests completed at the Wolfson Unit in April 2010, Heesen launched the revolutionary 65-Meter concept during the Monaco Yacht Show in September, which resulted in attracting very enthusiastic future owners.
The construction of the 65-Meter Fast Displacement superyacht will start in mid-December 2010 at the Heesen shipyard in Oss, the Netherlands. The cutting-edge yacht is projected to attain a maximum speed of 27 knots, a remarkable achievement for a vessel of this size. The yacht features expanded exterior spaces including a voluminous pool and extended beach deck and accommodations for 12 guests and 13 crew.
