According to the Dutch shipyard, Home underwent an extensive sea trial over five days in the North Sea. The superyacht exceeded her contractual speed of 16.3 knots in traditional diesel model. She was also able to reach the predicted speed of nine knots with noise and vibration below specifications.
Heesen is set to deliver three yachts in 2017 with a combined LOA of 152m. Heesen’s activity accounts for 25% of the superyachts launched by companies in the Netherlands in 2017.
Home has a much more modern profile than most of Heesen’s traditional yachts, with an almost vertical bow and straight superstructure lines. Some elements still emanate true Heesen characteristics, such as the forward sloping angle towards the bow.
Heesen has the third largest order book in the Netherlands behind Feadship and Amels, meaning that the company holds an approximate 14 % stake in the current Dutch order book.
