Royal Huisman’s Hyperion and Skat refit projects re-launched in Harlingen

Hyperion refit 1 BW 25pc Hyperion refit 2 BW 25pc Hyperion refit 3 BW 25pc Skat Huisman Strametco 2 BW 25pcSkat Huisman Strametco 3 BW 20pc

Photos taken by Ruud Burgers   Hyperion was refitted at the Huisman yard in Vollenhove, Skat at Strametco in Harlingen.

Both using the Huisfit programme. Royal Huisman’s owner Doeksen is apparently looking for a proper deep water location

so Huisman will able to build and refit much larger yachts. Strametco has excellent facilities with no bridges, locks or

(at high tide) shallow waters between the yard and the North Sea

Video of Steven Spielberg’s 86m (282 ft) Oceanco built Seven Seas

Yacht filmed leaving Ft Lauderdale with one of her tenders in tow. “Seven Seas”, launched in 2010, was

available for charter some time ago asking 1.3 million US Dollars per week. The infinity pool on the aft deck can be

transformed into a helicopter landing pad, and is equipped with a 4.5m (15 ft) glass wall which doubles as a movie

screen. The main salon has a 5 x 2m (16.4 x 6.5 ft) screen with a professional projection system

Heesen’s 50m (164 ft) all aluminium motoryacht YN 17850

21st of March 2015

Heesen 50m YN17850

Designed by Omega Architects, she features a Fast Displacement Hull Form (FDHF), which reduces fuel consumption

yet enables high speeds. Looks like a sistership of Sibelle, with different hull windows and newly styled top deck.

According to Heesen, Sibelle’s fuel consumption during sea trails was relatively low: 600 litres or 158 US gallons per hour

at top speed (19 kn). When cruising at 15.1 kn the yacht burnt 220 litres or 58 US gallons per hour. The FDHF is a step

in the right direction with regard to reducing emissions and lowering fuel costs

Christening of build number 17850 will take place in 2017       Heesen Yachts
