Heesen Project Triton nearing launch

Luxury yacht Project Triton, the 50m/164ft vessel currently in build at the Heesen facilities; is almost complete and will be ready for delivery in February 2020.

The hull is currently being painted for a powerful and contemporary appearance that boasts sweeping lines from the bow to the stern, with the gunwales and glazing following this curved appearance.

A sofa/sunbed is placed along the main deck aft to create a multi-use space close to the main salon, while above the upper deck features a sumptuous outdoor lounge for basking in the sunshine after an alfresco lunch. Guests looking to cool off or warm up in the sunshine have a forward sunbathing area surrounding a large circular Jacuzzi on the sundeck, and there are even more sun loungers to be found aft for numerous options for outdoor living.

The designer behind the interiors is Reymond Langton, who described the aesthetic as ‘contemporary and cosy’, using geometric forms, a sweeping diagonals and curving lines to create an exaggerated sense of space to this 500 GT superyacht. Clean and bright natural colours further add to this effect and bring a senses of harmony.

The accommodation meanwhile will sleep a maximum of 10 guests across five en-suite staterooms, consisting of a main deck Master suite, and on the lower deck three double cabins and one twin cabin. The main deck will host the toys and tenders, leaving room in the lower deck stern for a lavish beach club complete with back-lit bar.

She will be the sistership to luxury yacht OMAHA, delivered in July 2019, and will be the second hull in the Heesen 50M Steel model. She will be fitted with twin MTU 8V4000 M63 diesel engines producing 1000 kW for a top speed of 15 knots and a transatlantic range of 3,800 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 12 knots. A draft of 2.75m/9ft will ensure that she is able to approach the beautiful shallow beaches of the Caribbean and Bahamas.

Luxury yacht Project Triton is currently listed for sale and is expected to launch in the new year; after which she will undergo sea trials ahead of her delivery date.
