Heesen’s Newest Megayacht Hits the Water

John Lyon

The Dutch shipyard Heesen Yachts has launched the third hull in its 163-foot (50-meter) semi-displacement series. The yacht, which was christened Ventura by its owner, features an aluminum hull and a pair of MTU 16V engines that generate up to 7,295 hp and propel the ship to a top speed of 23 knots. When cruising at 11 knots, Ventura can achieve an impressive range of 3,200 nautical miles. The yacht’s minimalist interiors are courtesy of the Italian designer Francesco Paszkowski, who swathed Ventura’s main saloon in white and silver, with contrasting ebony parquet floors. The ship sleeps 12 guests in six cabins, including a full-beam VIP suite and two master suites. One of the master suites is located aft on the bridge deck and features wraparound windows; the other is located forward on the main deck. The yacht’s highlight feature is the 750-square-foot sundeck, which is equipped with furniture that can be rearranged according to the needs of its guests. Ventura further signals Heesen’s prowess in the sub-200-foot yacht category. (www.heesenyachts.nl)
