Heesen & Denison Yachting Sell 50m In-Build Project Triton
Heesen Yachts has announced the sale of YN 18850 Project Triton, launched earlier this year. David Johnson of American brokerage firm Denison Yachting introduced the client, with Thom Conboy of Heesen USA and the sales team in Oss working closely alongside to close the deal.
The sale of Project Triton marks the third contract signed by Heesen in 2020, after the sale of 50m Electra in March and 55m Project Pollux earlier this month.
Mark Cavendish, Chief Commercial Officer at Heesen, comments: “We are thrilled to be able to sign this contract despite the challenges created by Covid19 travel restrictions. Both teams worked ardently using innovative marketing and communications tools to bridge the gap generated by the pandemic. We are delighted to welcome the Owners of Triton to the Heesen family and fleet!”
Project Triton is the second in Heesen’s successful 50 metre steel class. Described by the yard as a ‘true blue-water motor yacht’ Triton is fitted with a displacement steel hull designed by the yard’s in-house architects and engineers, and two MTU 8V4000 M63 diesel engines providing a top speed of 15 knots.
Project Triton’s distinctive flowing exterior lines were inspired by classic automotive design by British designer Clifford Denn, while fellow British designer Reymond Langton is responsible for the superyacht’s contemporary and elegant interior.
The luxury yacht will comfortably accommodate up to ten guests in five spacious cabins, with an Owner’s stateroom on the main deck forward and four guest suites on the lower deck. Project Triton’s outdoor spaces are curated for quality time and comfort onboard, with tenders and toys stowed away conveniently on the foredeck leaving the lazzarette available as a beach club and wellness area.
Project Triton is scheduled for delivery to her new Owner in March 2021, as one of 12 yachts currently under construction at Heesen’s prolific yard.
