A 42 year old Dutch shipping company, Heesen Yachts is well reputed for building well designed and customised superyachts. Heesen has luanched almost 200 yachts from the time it was founded and many of its superyachts have wond prestigious awards at various forums.
Respected world over, Heesen Yachts is regarded as one of the best when it comes to designing and constructing of all-aluminum yachts.
What is inside matters a lot! Well with the luxury interiors of the180 feet Project Pollux, Heesen’s newly launched superyacht, this company has taken this adage to a whole new level. As Project Pollux floats majestically at Heesen's Oss facility, all the onlookers were dazzled by her mind blowing interiors.
Project Pollux is the second in its class to don a brand new design that accentuates her huge interior volume of around 760 Gross Tonnage.
London based Bannenberg & Rowell Design which happens to one of the world’s best luxury Yacht & Jet Design Company was commissioned by Heesen to create interiors for Project Pollux focusing on style integrated with bold solutions fused with a casual appeal. Bannenberg & Rowell has joined hands on previous occasions with Heesen yachts on multiple award winning superyacht designs including the well acclaimed Illusion and Odyssea.
Project Pollux has sophisticated interiors with strong character and wide appeal. Replete with dark eucalyptus and pale sycamore joinery, as well as chevron parquetry flooring, the vessel resembles a high-end New York loft. She can sleep up to 12 guests across six sizable cabins. The luxurious owner’s suite, which is located on the main deck, spans just shy of 900 square feet and offers his and hers bathrooms with a shower and bathtub. The remaining guest cabins are spread across the bridge and lower decks, with two twins and two doubles on the lower deck and a VIP cabin on the bridge. Elsewhere, seafarers can relax in the picturesque sky lounge or the elegant main saloon with bar.
Outdoors, there’s a generous 1,000-square-foot sundeck that comes equipped with an al fresco dining area, a fully stocked bar and a supersize hot tub. The beach club and wellness area sit aft nice and close to the water, while a haul of tenders and toys are stored on the foredeck for easy access.
The superyacht is no less impressive from the outside. With exteriors penned by Omega Architects, she features a slippery, steel fast-displacement hull that will see her cut through the seas with ease. Fitted with two MTU Tier III compliant diesel engines, the vessel will have a top speed of 15.5 knots and a remarkable range of 4,500 nautical miles when traveling at the cruising speed of 13 knots.
As per the team at Heesen, this extraordinary feature makes Project Pollux one of the most efficient yachts in her category indeed.
After a series of intensive sea trials in the North Sea in the next month, the beautiful Project Pollux will soon be ready to start her adventurous journey into the vast oceans and seas.
