Exclusive first look inside Heesen’s 60m Ultra G

19 April 2024 • Written by Hannah Rankine for Heesen

Following the recent news that Heesen’s Ultra G has been sold and delivered to her new owner, the Dutch shipyard has released new exclusive images of her fresh interior, designed by British studio Harrison Eidsgaard. Previously known under her build name, Project Skyfall, the full-custom, 60-metre motor yacht is made of lightweight aluminium, which gives her an impressive 22,000hp engine capable of reaching a top speed of 37 knots. Penned by Frank Laupman of Omega Architects, the 918GT superyacht has a striking exterior profile that draws inspiration from Heesen’s sportfishing yachts of the 1990s - the 38.3-metre Obsessions and the 39.1-metre Red Sapphire - and is the culmination of over 40 years of shipbuilding experience. BOAT takes a closer look at her impressive interior features.

The main deck: the perfect social setting

The layout of Ultra G has been customised to suit the lifestyle preferences of its owner, emphasising entertainment and socialising whilst maintaining a private retreat for moments of solitude. Nowhere is this more evident than on the main deck, where every detail has been carefully considered to create the perfect setting for gathering and relaxation.

The main saloon features an open-plan design flooded with natural light, courtesy of expansive windows that offer views of the surrounding seascape. Amidships, there is a bar with a standout, temperature-controlled wine rack showcasing the owner's collection. This space transitions into a spacious lounge area, complete with a DJ deck and sound system. A formal dining area, able to seat up to 12 guests, is situated forward, adorned with an elegant oval design and illuminated by a striking light feature overhead.

One of the standout features of the main deck is the media room, located forward of the main saloon, offering a cosy space for relaxing nights in. Here, guests can curl up and watch movies in the cinema room or enjoy hours of family fun at the games table. Another area worth mentioning is the expansive garage, strategically located forward on the main deck in the bow, providing easy access to the yacht’s tenders and toys collection, which include custom-designed Seabobs and paddleboards.

The bridge deck: an owner’s dream

Whilst Ultra G accommodates a total of 10 guests across five suites, the bridge deck is reserved exclusively for the owner's pleasure. Here, there is a luxurious owner's suite positioned to face aft and featuring bespoke artworks. Entering the suite, you are welcomed by a giant statue of a whale tail before the space opens up into a spacious, cosy retreat with a king-sized bed and large sliding doors that open onto a private terrace adorned with a whirlpool and a seating area. The suite also features a spacious walk-in wardrobe, offering ample storage and a vanity table, whilst the ensuite bathroom features a standalone oval bathtub as the centrepiece with his and hers basins.

As requested by the owner, Ultra G has been thoughtfully designed to be dog-friendly throughout. A dedicated "dog-relief" area has been discreetly incorporated onto the owner's private terrace, which is cleaned automatically.

The lower deck: the ultimate retreat

A spiral staircase with intricate light features connects all four decks, serving as a visual centrepiece on board. Descending to the lower deck of Ultra G, guests will find the remaining four guest staterooms, comprising two doubles and two twins, each appointed with an ensuite bathroom. Forward, dedicated quarters can accommodate a crew of 13.

However, it is the stern area of the lower deck that truly distinguishes Ultra G from its peers. Rather than a traditional beach club, the yacht boasts a sophisticated fishing platform, complete with rod holders, flushing systems, ice lockers, freezers and live wells. Complementing this unique feature is the “Fisherman’s Lounge”, adorned with comfortable sofas and equipped with live feeds from underwater cameras. Adjacent to the fishing platform lies the wellness area, which includes a beauty salon, sauna, steam room and snow room.
