Project: Heesen 50m Project Nova

In a world full of noise, Heesen believes silence is the ultimate luxury so here comes the new fifty meter project Nova. The exterior of Nova is designed by Omega Architects and it’s a first for Heesen with hybrid propulsion. In this case hybrid means that the yacht can draw on two sources of power for propulsion: diesel mechanical and diesel electrical. Either or both sources can be used at the same time. No batteries. This provides more flexible power management, which means better efficiency, less noise and less vibration. Up to 9 knots Nova will be as silent as when at anchor.  Nova-Hybrid is not only fuel efficient, but also great care in living space optimization designed in this case by Sinot. Featuring Heesen patented Fast Displacement hull the fifty meter project Nova will offer a 16 knots top speed, while a cruise of 12 knots gives a range of 3750 nautical miles.
