Since launching in 1976, Heesen has launched over 170 yachts and is now considered a world leader in the design and construction of aluminium superyachts. But what makes a boat quintessentially ‘Heesen’? Is it world-class craftmanship? Sporty lines or performance?
In this series, BOAT sits down with some of the world’s most revered superyacht designers to chat about their favourite Heesen designs and what makes up the shipyard’s idiosyncratic DNA. In this third instalment, we chat with Reymond Langton Design co-founder Pascale Reymond.
The key standout feature that characterises Heesen superyachts is an exterior that is “very well balanced, very elegant and very race-y,” according to designer Pascale Reymond.
Reymond, the co-founder of luxury yacht design studio Reymond Langton, described Heesen yachts as “all different” with “a good sense of proportion”.
“The yachts are always a little bit different because they are open to different studios,” she added. “It’s not one type of brand with one style of interior or exterior.”
Speaking about working with the Dutch yard, Reymond said the studio “has to keep on our feet and get it right from the beginning.”
“That’s what defines them, they strive for quality and timing on delivery,” she added.
