Sailing superyacht Heureka launched by Holland Jachtbouw

Holland Jachtbouw has launched the 45m Bill Dixon-designed sailing superyacht Heureka at its yard in Zaandam, The Netherlands.

The yacht’s systems include an automatic bimini and a dodger system, plus a telescopic lifting keel engineered by the yard to avoid disrupting with the interior accommodation. The interior design was commissioned with Rhoades Young and a minimalistic ethos pervades in the sleek high performance sloop, designed to suit the light airs of the Mediterranean.

‘We are delighted to see Heureka move onto the next phase of her sea trials,’ says Roeland Franssens, a director at Holland Jachtbouw. ‘The engineering and project teams at HJB have worked around the clock to ensure that she was launched on time and that all systems are operational. We are extremely pleased with the outcome of the innovative, unique features incorporated in the build of this vessel.’

After the yacht’s launch her mast was stepped and Heureka will soon begin sea trials in open water to run the onboard systems.

The launch is the latest news we have received from the yard since the sailing superyacht This Is Us was relaunched after seven-month refit at Holland Jachtbouw. The 41.83m aluminium-hull schooner was designed inside and out by Andre Hoek and built by HJB. The refit included a complete hull repaint and maintenance of her keel, bulb and lifting keel box. The main engine, generator, water maker, hydraulic pumps, and her navigation and communication equipment received full service, along with all winches and safety equipment found on board.
