Video Tour: Inside Heesen's Project Pollux With Bannenberg & Rowell

5 January 2021

Dutch builder Heesen Yachts has released a video tour inside the Bannenberg & Rowell-designed interior of its in-build 55 metre superyacht Project Pollux

Hosted by Dickie Bannenberg, the tour takes the viewer through the main interior spaces on board including the saloon, dining area, owner's cabin and lower deck accommodation. 

Speaking about the project, Bannenberg said: "Pollux now represents the 9th or 10thproject we’ve done with [Heesen ]. The sense of knowing what each other wants and needs is really strong and they give us a very free hand on how about we go about doing the interior design of the project."

Bannenberg revealed more about the interior design of the project, which is the fourth hull in Heesen's 55 metre Steel series.

Bannenberg said the interior design possesses "a really calm and smart and sophisticated look." The main saloon is fitted with "contrasting timbers" - pale eucalyptus and dark stained eucalyptus - along with "a very interesting, chic chevron floor", Bannenberg revealed.

Elsewhere, the tour journeyed to the owner's stateroom, an 82 square metre suite forward of the main deck. 

"Moving forward into the main entrance lobby and then walking forward you’ll enter the owner’s suite, which is an interesting space and takes advantage of the full height windows -the light absolutely floods into that space," Bannenberg said. 

"Finishes are a continuation of this easy going, soft and broadly light tone colours in there. We’ve got smoky grey finished eucalyptus and a continuation of the chevron patterns," he added.

He described the overall effect as "calming" and not "super bland and anonymous".

The rest of the guest accommodation for a further 10 guests sits on the lower deck and comprises five ensuite cabins. Elsewhere, Bannenberg predicted that the sun deck will be "the most popular area on board" and revealed the beach club will feature materials such as "textured limestone" and details such as an "almost origami set of panelling."
