Heesen Yachts New 58m Design

Heesen Yachts have presented their new 58m (190ft) design in collaboration with the Italian designer Francesco Paszkowski. Her sleek aggressive exterior lines portray speed and power combined with elements inspired by automotive and aeronautical styling.

The relationship between Heesen Yachts and Francesco Paszkowski dates back to the nineties with the creation of the exterior lines of the 35m (115ft) megayacht "Opus II" and more recently with the interior design of two vessels in the 50m (164ft) semi-displacement class.

Her stern is very distinctive with a swim platform surrounded with full width steps and elegant stairs on either side of the sun pads to access the aft deck. An unusual design feature is located on the fore deck where a bimini lifts up to reveal and shade an open air lounge space.

Guests are accommodated in five cabins which include a traditionally located full beam owners cabin forward on the main deck, two twin and two double cabins located on the lower deck.

Fabio Ermetto, Sales and Marketing Director at Heesen, comments: "Paszkowski has created a very innovative interpretation of Heesen’s traditional lines; the look of this 58 metre vessel has a family feeling within its strong individuality. At Heesen we are very happy to have the chance to work with such a creative designer. This project, which we already studied and are ready to build, will sport a fast displacement hull (FDHF) created by Van Oossanen Naval Architects and will reach a maximum speed of approximately 23 knots powered by a pair of MTU engines of 16V 4000 M93L."
