Private Preview 2013: Heesen Yachts

Bailey S. Barnard

Heesen is well into the construction of the 213-foot, four-deck Project Omnia, which will be the Dutch shipbuilder’s largest vessel ever and the world’s first all-aluminum yacht with a fast-displacement hull. The hull design will make Project Omnia quick and fuel efficient: It is expected to have a range of 4,200 nautical miles and a top speed of 27 knots. The yacht, scheduled for delivery in June, also will have fold-down balconies aft on the port and starboard sides, adding 340 square feet of deck space near the already sizable beach deck, which folds down from the stern. Other features will include a hot tub on the sundeck; a pool on the main deck, with a glass bottom that serves as the ceiling to the bar area below; a touch-and-go helipad at the bow; and a nearly 800-square-foot full-beam master suite. The yacht will sleep as many as 12 passengers in six staterooms, including the master suite. Heesen Yachts, www.heesenyachts.nl
