Heesen's Largest Steel FDHF Ever: Project Sparta Taking Shape
Dutch shipyard Heesen has issued an update on 67m YN 20067 as she takes shape in the Oss shipyard. Also known as Project Sparta, Heesen's largest FDHF (Fast Displacement Hull Form) Steel superyacht is proceeding on schedule for delivery in 2023.
During a three-day operation, Project Sparta’s hull was lowered into the water for the first time to be joined with her superstructure. With this, the superyacht has taken on her recognisable profile as the exterior form of Project Sparta can now be distinguished for the first time.
Defined by an assertive bow, bold curves and dramatic shapes for windows which connect harmoniously to provide for a family-oriented living space. Designed by British icon Winch Design, Project Sparta is equipped with a raised pilothouse to give a modern, sporty profile that the yard has said ‘will pave the way for the next generation of Heesen yachts’.
Weighing in at 1,200GT of interior volume, Project Sparta is not lacking in luxury. Counting amongst her amenities a 6.5-metre infinity pool aft, walk-in wellness area with oval Jacuzzi, sauna, steam room and gymnasium, her interior configuration also includes a dedicated owner’s deck with suites facing forward and aft.
Heesen CEO Arthur Brouwer comments in a statement, “The production of full-custom yachts is a challenge that we at Heesen always undertake with great enthusiasm… Working with Winch Design is always a great pleasure, and we look forward to seeing this yacht in all her splendour two years from now.”
