New Model: Heesen 56m YN 18556

Heesen has launched the new 56 meter YN 18556 previously known as Project Neptune, and named as M/Y Galvas.  Jonny Horsfield of British firm H2 penned her profile. Based on Heesen’s engineering platform for the 55m FDHF Steel Class, YN 18556 sports an innovative design, which retains the Heesen family look and feel but exudes the desire to create an aesthetically unique yacht.  With a Gross Tonnage of 770GT, the yacht accommodates twelve guests in six luxurious staterooms. British design studio Reymond Langton has created an elegant and refined interior design comprising custom artworks by DKT that are peppered throughout the yacht.  Two MTU 1340hp diesel engines coupled with the ultra-efficient FDHF steel hull allowed Galvas to exceed her top speed of 15.5 knots during sea trials. At a cruising speed of 13 knots, she has a range of 3,100 nautical miles. YN 18556 is the second yacht in Heesen’s fleet to comply with the latest emissions regulations thanks to an SCR catalytic system that reduces NOx exhaust emissions. The new Heesen 56 meter is Lloyds commercial yachts compliant. Following successful rigorous tests in the North Sea, she is now on her way to the Mediterranean.  This new Heesen 56m is a shining example of the design freedom and performance capabilities made available to clients who opt for one of Heesen’s proven engineering platforms. This choice provides the opportunity to express creativity in the exterior lines, paired with a layout that perfectly complements an individual lifestyle, and completed by an interior design that both reflects and enhances an owner’s taste and choice.
