New Model: Heesen 55m YN 19055

Heesen is delighted to announce that on May 14, YN 19055 Project Castor was launched at the Dutch facility in Oss on schedule for its delivery in August.  Thanks to the drastic measures adopted early on, both in Heesen production processes and in the offices, the Dutch yard managed to introduce the necessary physical distance and were therefore able to carry on work following the Dutch governmental guidelines with as little disruption as possible. By halving the number of employees working in the shipyard at any one time by working in two shifts, we did not lose productivity and increased flexibility.  At 760GT, Project Castor is the most voluminous 55 metre currently offered by a Northern European shipyard. Powered by two MTU 1340hp diesel main engines, she will reach a top speed of 15.5 knots and will boast a range of 4,500 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 13 knots. This outstanding performance is possible thanks to the proven design and engineering platform that sports the progressive Fast Displacement Hull Form hull devised by Van Oossanen. The Heesen 55 metre FDHF Steel offers exceptional sea keeping qualities coupled with more frugal fuel consumption compared to any other yacht in her class. Twelve guests are accommodated in six staterooms, with the master suite located forward on the main deck. Four spacious guest cabins (two double and two twin) are on the lower deck, while the VIP is on the bridge deck. Project Castor is the first in the class to offer the new layout configuration.  YN 19055 will be delivered to her Owners in August 2020 after rigorous sea trials in the North Sea.
