Hull and superstructure joined on 55m Heesen Project Pollux

Hull and superstructure joined on 55m Heesen Project Pollux

Dutch yard Heesen has joined the hull and superstructure of its in-build 55 metre Project Pollux.

The construction milestone took place at the yard’s Oss-based facility where the yacht will stay for the next 16 months to complete construction.

Following commissioning, the 55 metre Steel FDHF yacht will undertake sea trials in the North Sea. Project Pollux is available for delivery in autumn 2020.

Project Pollux’s exterior design by Frank Laupman’s Omega Architects features floor to ceiling windows, open bulwarks and “chiselled lines”, the yard said.

Toys and tenders are stored on the foredeck while the beach club and wellness area sit aft close to the water.

Project Pollux’s “voluminous” 760GT interior has been penned by British design studio Bannenberg & Rowell. The styling revolves around “a blend of natural, noble tends”, the yard said, with key materials including ivory Travertine marble, smoked oak chevron with “bronze accents”.

Interior social areas are found on the main and bridge deck, while the 100 square metre sun deck provides al fresco relaxation.

Accommodation is for a total of 12 guests, with the 82 square metre owner’s apartment located on the main deck. Decorated in a palette of “taupes, browns and creams”, the master suite includes a his and hers bathroom with a shower and bath tub.

The rest of the guest accommodation sits across the bridge and lower decks, with two twins and two doubles on the lower deck and a fifth VIP cabin on the bridge deck.

Power will come from two MTU 8V 4000 M63 diesel engines for a top speed of 15.5 knots and a range of 4,500 nautical miles at 13 knots.
