Claasen sailing yacht Heartbeat relaunched after third Huisfit

The 24 metre Claasen sailing yacht Heartbeat has been relaunched in the Netherlands after completing her latest refit at Royal Huisman’s Vollenhove facility.

Built to a design by Hoek Naval Architects and first launched in 2007, Heartbeat has been a regular visitor to Royal Huisman with three refits carried out at the yard in the past ten years. A series of technical updates have helped keep her in regatta-ready condition, as evidenced by Heartbeat winning her class at the 2013 and 2014 Superyacht Cup Palma.

Other changes carried out at Royal Huisman included a complete relocation of the owner’s cabin, which was initially located in the aft, but has now been moved to the bow. Two twin rooms and a double room bring her total guest accommodation to ten, while the crew quarters allows for a staff of two.

The yard adds that all three of Heartbeat’s refits have been managed by yacht management firm Dutch Maritime Partners, and as these post-refit photos show, her deck layout includes storage space for a tender on the bow.

Auxiliary power comes from a single 200hp Lugger diesel engine drawing on a total fuel capacity of 2,300 litres. Heartbeat’s vital statistics include a beam of 5.62 metres, a maximum draught of 2.8 metres and a total displacement of 50 tonnes.

Other superyacht refit projects recently completed by the Dutch yard include the 32 metre Royal Huisman sailing yacht Gliss, which has been given a new exterior colour scheme. Looking further ahead and the 51.59 metre ketch Meteor has already booked in for a winter 2017-18 refit at Royal Huisman.
