Heesen Yacht Nova

Project Nova with hybrid propulsion

If you can buy a superyacht, it goes to reason that you could buy nearly anything. So what does the superyacht owner who has everything desire most?

And this week, Heesen Yachts released its teaser video for the Monaco Yacht Show, which espouses this sentiment exactly.
