Heesen launches new breed of yacht

ADVERTISEMENT

Heesen has launched 17850 (aka Project Nova), the world’s first Fast Displacement Hull Form (FDHF) with hybrid propulsion, in Holland. The owner christened his new yacht Home.

M/Y Home is a 164-foot (50m) aluminium motor yacht below the 500GT threshold, with a draft of 2.15m.

Two water-cooled DC electric shaft motors, each 127 kW, allow the yacht to cruise at 9 knots using generators alone, so it can leave harbor without waking the owner and guests. The yacht was designed by Omega Architects.

M/Y Home will remain at Heesen’s Oss facility to commission its systems, then will move to Rotterdam to undergo sea trials and official tests before delivery to the owners in June.
