During an intimate ceremony, Peter Brown from Burgess, representing the client, officially declared the keel “well and truly laid” on January 19, 2017.
The laying of the keel of a yacht is one of the most significant dates in a yacht’s life: the date in effect marks her birth. This 56m Fast Displacement, full-custom, steel-hulled yacht is due for delivery to her owners in 2019.
Heesen Yachts Board of Directors comments: “We are truly honoured that the Owner chose our shipyard to build his full custom yacht. This will be another splendid addition to our fast-growing fleet and we are very excited that today this incredible project started taking shape!”
