Heesen's YB 18650 Project Boreas is sold

29 nov 2017

Heesen has announced the sale of its 5th yacht in 2017. The FDHF Project Boreas has found an owner and will be delivered in 2019.

A full-aluminium motoryacht built on the design and engineering platform of Nova Plus, Project Boreas offers fast yet very efficient performance thanks to its Fast Displacement Hull Form with a draft of  2.15 metres, all wrapped up in a contemporary exterior design by Omega Architects.

The client, an experienced sailing yacht owner, was attracted by the efficiency, versatility, and seakeeping of the Fast Displacement Hull Form combined with the cutting-edge exterior design. He approached the shipyard directly and worked closely with the shipyard’s engineers to customise his new yacht, which was already one year into construction.  Thanks to his extensive sailing experience, the owner has been able to infuse his personal touch into every single area of the yacht.  

Project Boreas is a shining example of how a discerning client can customise the pre-engineered design platform of a hull already in construction, considerably shortening the delivery time. In fact, the yacht will be delivered in July 2019 after intensive sea trials in the North Sea.
