Heesen 50 Metre Superyacht Project Triton Nears Completion
by Miranda Blazeby
Speaking to BOAT International, Heesen's director of sales and marketing Mark Cavendish revealed the 500GT yacht is currently under scaffolding being painted.
The yacht is due to launch in the New Year at which point most the interior will be installed. The yacht, which is currently listed for sale, will then undertake sea trials.
"I think we're probably the only Northern European shipyard with a 500GT boat ready for next summer," Cavendish said.
Designed and engineered in-house, Project Triton is the second new 50 metre Steel Class and will be the sistership to the Omaha, which was delivered in July.
The yard said that the “curvy flowing forms” of the exterior lines by Clifford Denn are inspired by classic car design.
"The result is a yacht with a bold but elegant profile, with plenty of entertaining space both indoor and on deck," the yard said.
The interior design by Reymond Langton meanwhile has been described as "contemporary and cosy".
It is "defined by a linear and clean environment where contrasting shapes and tones are punctuated by diagonal and curved lines, all which works together to create a geometric theme throughout the yacht," the yard added.
Described as “a true bluewater motor yacht”, Project Triton will accommodate 10 guests in four large staterooms, and a master stateroom on the main deck.
Multiple tenders and toys will be stored on the main deck while a luxurious beach club will be equipped with a backlit bar.
Power will come from a pair of MTU 8V4000 M63 diesel engines of 1000kw for a range of 3,800 nautical miles at 12 knots and a top speed of 15 knots.
