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 has presented two brand new designs, the 66-meter Project Avanti and the 83-meter Project Maximus.

    The 66m Project Avanti, FDHF with hybrid propulsion, is a pocket mega-yacht by Winch Design. The sculptural surfaces of the concept reflect the sky and ocean, creating a muscular contemporary appearance. By incorporating a raised pilothouse, a sporty profile is achieved as well as an Owner’s cabin with panoramic views, overlooking the relaxation area on the foredeck. Dynamic architecture emphasises the elegant sheer line which connects the strong bow to an inviting transom. The stepped aft deck area harmonises interior and exterior living, creating easy access to the infinity edge pool and surrounding waters

    Heesen’s new revolutionary 83m concept designed by Clifford Denn is maximus by name, and maximus by nature. Project MAXIMUS is a hugely flexible platform that offers optimum distribution of both interior and exterior volumes and spaces to achieve a long, low, sleek and narrow vessel ideally suited to optimise the benefits of Heesen’s new ‘shed’, which can house up to 83m LOA.  Inspired by Denn’s experience designing commercial passenger vessels for Cunard (QM2), P&O and, in particular, Viking Ocean Cruise vessels where the Wheel house is located forward and under the Passenger decks, this striking yacht puts the owner experience at the fore. Central to the design is the 100 per cent use of private exterior deck for owner and guest, stretching an unprecedented full length of the boat.
