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.
