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 Yachts is proud to announce that Sinot Exclusive Yacht Design has been appointed by the owners of Project Cosmos to design the interior of their new yacht.

    This is the third collaboration between Heesen and the award-winning Dutch studio. Previously, Sinot worked on the design of Azamanta, the first in the 55m Fast Displacement Steel class, and the 70m FDHF multi-award-winning Galactica Super Nova, Heesen’s largest yacht launched to date.

    At 80.07 metres, 1,700 Gross Tons and with a top speed of 29 knots, Project Cosmos will be the world’s largest and fastest full-aluminium motor yacht with conventional propeller propulsion system.

    The interior design for this exciting project is inspired by elements from nature. Natural mathematics, such as the Fibonacci sequence, form the basis for the interior architecture.  Together with clear graphic lines the result is a clean architectural environment. Special, featured materials, such as backlit onyx, straw marquetry and crystal glass panels are framed within the architectural lines to emphasise the beauty of these materials.  

    Custom design furniture elements constructed from glass, marble, metal, and various types of wood add the finishing touches to the interior décor.

    The shipyard’s main interior workshop is situated in Winterswijk, 120 kilometres from Oss, and provides more than 7,000 square metres of working space. Here, skilled cabinet makers work on up to five Heesen projects simultaneously, and is where all of the luxury areas are created. At the shipyard in Oss, 30 craftsmen work on the interior for all of the service areas.

    Project Cosmos, with exterior lines penned by Winch Design, is due for delivery in April 2022.
