Experience, craftsmanship and innovation
Rick van de Wetering is Director of Operations at Heesen Yachts and brings to the job over 25 years of industry experience. In fact, he began his career with the Oss-based brand, fulfilling a number of managerial roles before working with other international shipyards. 

“I am excited about my return to Heesen Yachts,” says Rick. “We operate in one of the most incredible markets where no client is ever the same. That means we have to bring all our experience, craftsmanship and innovation to the table if we are to meet – and hopefully exceed – their highest expectations.”

Rick points to the rich heritage of Heesen Yachts that helps him to achieve this goal. The shipyard was a pioneer in the use of light aluminium alloy for building large yachts and the first to introduce revolutionary technical features such as the Fast Displacement Hull Form and Hull Vane. These and other innovations have resulted in ground-breaking projects that are simply beyond belief.

“We excel at building bespoke yachts between 30m and 80m that are absolutely personal to each client,” concludes Rick. “But another important part of my job is also to ensure that they thoroughly enjoy the process from concept to completion.”

    Heesen teamed up with renowned British studio Winch Design to create the ultimate explorer yacht, conceived to take adventurous owners off the beaten path in seven-star comfort, rugged but luxurious in style and high efficiency thanks to FDHF hull design.

    To be built to the highest Lloyds Classification and safety standards Xventure is the ideal yacht for extended offshore passages. A remarkable cruising range of 5,000 miles (with even longer range as an optional extra) enables her to reach remote bays and creeks, and to remain on station longer than other yachts.

    Not just designed to accommodate rough waters, however, Xventure pays respect to the oceans and the environment. The optional hybrid propulsion system delivers reduced fuel consumption and exceptionally low noise and vibration levels. She also conforms to the latest Tier III exhaust and pollution emission regulations to reduce her footprint, while her FDHF hull makes her highly efficient.

    At 57m long, Xventure offers an unusually high interior volume of approximately 1,280GT.  This, combined with great views from everywhere on board will delight the Owner and his guests. Floor-to-ceiling glass windows afford views out to sea from the main deck guest suites and Owner’s full-beam apartment, as well as the upper deck saloon. A glass-ceilinged winter garden on the observation deck provides expansive vistas from every angle with a swimming pool forward.

    One of Xventure’s key design features, however, is the access that she provides to various transport modes for a variety of expeditions, whether it be a helicopter, large tender, jet skis or submarine if the owner chooses. A double-height tender garage accommodates an 11.4m Intrepid 375 Sports fishing boat port-side, with a second 8.6m Beachlander in a side garage. These are unusually large tenders designed to allow guests to move to and from shore in great comfort and variable weather conditions. They are also ideal for carrying extensive gear required for local expeditions. Personal watercraft, scuba diving equipment storage, a 4.5m crew tender and storage for fishing equipment and small toys are neatly accommodated, as is the option to carry an Airbus H135 helicopter to visit remote areas for heli-skiing or heli-fishing.

    Possessing Heesen’s DNA and proven engineering, she answers a new calling within yachting – that of remote cruising. Offering long range, a robust build, helicopter capability, and vast storage space she is tough, independent, exhilarating and daring.

    A true Heesen explorer yacht, Xventure is the dawn of a new era of great adventures.
