Hakvoort launches largest project


Hakvoort Shipyard launched the 209-foot (63.7m) explorer yacht Scout, known as Project Brio during the build, or YN249, at Monnickendam in North Holland on Dec. 1. It’s the Dutch shipbuilder’s largest project to date, and is expected to be delivered to the owners this spring.

The yacht has been towed to Amsterdam for final work, including installation of her mast, crow’s nest, radars, stabilizers and propellers.

Powered by twin Caterpillar 3512C diesel engines, Scout is designed to cruise at 12.5 knots and will be able to reach a top speed of 14.8 knots, with a range of 4,800nm at 12 knots, according to a statement from the yard.

Diana Yacht Design is responsible for the yacht’s naval architecture, while interior and exterior design was handled by British design studio H2 Yacht Design.

“The owner’s brief called for a rugged explorer-style yacht intended to look like a conversion from a commercial vessel,” stated Jonny Horsfield of H2 Yacht Design. “She’s a fantastically unique vessel.”

Hakvoort Shipyard was introduced to the owners by Stuart Larsen and Josh Gulbranson of Fraser, who also organized the owners’ project team.
