Located in Oss, The Netherlands, Heesen Yachts builds custom superyachts in aluminium and steel from 30 to 70 metres in size.
History of Heesen Yachts
Heesen Yachts was founded by Frans Heesen in 1978, drawing on the rich talent pool of maritime craftsmen and artisans in The Netherlands. The shipyard claims to be the first in Holland to utilize aluminium alloy in constructing yacht hulls. Heesen Yachts has continued to pioneer the use of aluminium to produce seaworthy yet swift performance superyachts.
In 1992, the shipyard added full displacement, steel-hulled motor yachts to its portfolio. In recent years, Heesen Yachts also has developed a series of “Fast Displacement” superyachts, designed to provide higher speeds and greater fuel efficiency than a traditional luxury yacht.
