A yacht is a beautiful way to expand your horizons in luxurious comfort. But when that yacht is a Heesen, it can be so much more. Our yachts also offer outstanding performance combined with efficient fuel consumption, high-quality construction with cutting-edge technology, advanced engineering with avant-garde design.
Founded by Frans Heesen in 1978 in Oss, Heesen Yachts was the first Dutch shipyard to employ aluminium for the yacht hulls. Since then we have become a world leader in design, engineering and construction of high-performance motor-yachts. In 1992 we expanded our business to include the construction of traditional displacement yachts, and today we deliver superyachts within the 30 – 80 metres size range, and beyond. In 35 years we have delivered nearly 170 yachts. The current fleet includes aluminium, steel, displacement, semi-displacement and the new revolutionary fast displacement.
Ten yachts are currently in construction and their deliveries span through to 2018. Heesen is financially secure, large enough to cope with complex construction, small enough to care about each project, motivated to pioneer innovations and dedicated to continuing the tradition of Dutch quality shipbuilding.
