Dutch yard Heesen has announced that the hull and superstructure of its 50 metre Project Oslo24 have been joined at the yard's Oss facilities.

Codenamed YN 20150, the steel-hulled yacht officially began construction in October 2021.  

With an exterior penned by Clifford Denn Yachts and interiors by Luca Dini Design and Architecture, Oslo24 has been described as “highly customised” by the yard.

She is built on the platform of Heesen’s 50m Steel Class superyachts and was commissioned by “an experienced yachtsman”, who has selected a hybrid propulsion system to power the yacht. 

The system will draw on both diesel engines and electric motors either together or individually. The package is centred around twin MTU 8V4000 M63 (IMO Tier III) main engines, which are paired with 135kW Danfoss electric motors on the same propeller shaft. This allows the yacht to operate in one of three modes – silent, economy and cruising. Silent mode will be effective at up to 8.5 knots.

Rick van de Wetering, Heesen’s COO, commented: "Working with such passionate clients who enjoy every step in the construction of their yacht is a true blessing. Their extensive knowledge and genuine interest in the technology and craftsmanship that go into their yacht are a source of inspiration for our entire team. We were delighted by their presence at the marriage of the hull and superstructure, an important step in every yacht’s build.”

The owners are working closely with the design team to create an interior “connected to their life at sea”. Dark, high gloss will contrast with light matte wood finishes alongside ribbed canneté texture and soft leather. Onboard highlights include a glass-bottomed pool and firepit.

“We are delighted that everything is on track with Oslo24,” said owner’s representative Stefan Zucker. “Her owners are proud and happy, having watched their yacht progress through every step of the construction so far with the closest attention. We are all looking forward to the next milestone.”

Project Oslo24 is due for delivery in 2024.
