Video of Mulder Shipyard’s motoryacht SOLIS returning from North Sea trails

31st of July 2015

Mulder Shipyard’s 34m (111 ft) filmed entering the Dutch port of Scheveningen (Next to The Hague) returning from a day

of trails on the North Sea.

Italian yard Cantiere Delle Marche appears very successful with their line of Darwin class expedition yachts. Currently

in Holland it seems only one yacht yard is offering something similar:

Wim van der Valk’s new Expedition / Explorer concept.

Apparently there’s a growing market for such boats. Perhaps an opportunity for other Dutch yards to build such yachts?

Heesen’s Project NOVA: first FDHF with Hybrid Propulsion

29th of July 2015

Heesen hybrid Nova 50m


At the 2015 Monaco Yacht Show Heesen will unveil the first yacht with a Fast Displacement Hull Form and Hybrid

Propulsion. “NOVA” is an enhanced version of Sibelle, measuring 50m or 164 ft in length. Exterior Design: Omega

Architects. Interior by Sinot. Lightweight aluminium construction. The weight saving and low drag of the FDHF concept

make a lot of sense, especially in a below 500 GT boat: you can do with smaller engines and smaller fuel tanks.

Which leaves more space for owner, guests and crew.

As with a car, the hybrid system will add some weight and take up room but will enable emission free running of the

boat for a certain amount of time. This gives even better fuel economy, less CO2, less pollution and less fuel costs.

Launch: spring 2017            Heesen Yachts
