Heesen Yachts Sell - 45m Project Necto


Heesen Yachts have announced that their first 45m (148ft) fly bridge megayacht YN 17145 "Project Necto" has been sold to a yacht connoisseur with a true passion for speed and power.

She is a powerful sportster and the largest built by a Northern European shipyard to date. She will be capable of an impressive 30kts thanks to her well engineered all aluminium semi-displacement hull and twin MTU 16V 4000 M73L engines. Speed and power combined with the interior luxury and comfort are the characteristics of this semi-displacement megayacht that will have a range of 2.750nm at 12kts.

Frank Laupman of Omega Architects has created her exterior lines. He has introduced a piece of innovation excellence by introducing the "knuckle", a design element that interrupts the line of the raked bow and gives her a much sharper and narrower bow that adds an aggressive look.


Her interior is by Italian designer Cristiano Gatto who is currently working on his third project with the Dutch shipyard. The owners chose a contemporary yet cosy design for the interior of their 45m sportster. Ten guests will be accommodated in five cabins, with the full beam master suite located on the main deck and the four guest cabins two twins and two doubles on the lower deck.

The owners dedicated special attention to the outdoor areas of their new megayacht, that includes an extremely spacious sundeck. The 84 sqm sundeck is completely free from fixed furniture to give the space for guests to carry out their morning exercise. It is an unusual and particularly remarkable design feature on a megayacht of this size.


She is due to be delivered to her owners after intensive sea trials in the North Sea in January 2016.
