47 metre aluminium semi-displacement
What makes a Heesen so distinctive? Custom built in Holland, it is not just a matter of style but more importantly, the contemporary application of engineering: the architecture of performance. Our concept has evolved over 30 years and the experience we have accrued is unlike that of any other yacht builder in the world. Building in aluminium to enormously demanding tolerances, the Heesen hull-form is unique â&#x20AC;&#x201C; quite simply no other ship shape so optimises the way a yacht moves through water. Meticulous attention to weight reduction results in increased levels of luxury. A Heesen is a Heesen because we are dedicated to one principle: the performance of luxury.
ur third aluminium 47 metre semi-displacement yacht, 4 You was completely custom-built and combines precision Heesen engineering and build quality with interiors designed by Omega. The result: a yacht that effortlessly combines speed, efficiency and exceptional levels of comfort. Sophisticated naval architecture, our weight reduction expertise and twin MTU 2.720kW engines produce a top speed of 24 knots. In addition, 4 You is remarkably fuel efficient.
4,6 metre and 6,1 metre tenders are held in a transom garage, launched and captured by our track system. The concept does away with the need for cranes. This creates a larger garage, greater headroom and as a result, a safer working environment. More space on deck â&#x20AC;&#x201C; even on a swimming platform â&#x20AC;&#x201C; simply means greater luxury.
Outside space is huge, with a number of different areas for sunbathing, dining, relaxing or entertaining. On the main deck aft, weatherproof armchairs and sofas surround teak tables. Sliding semi-circular glass doors open into the main saloon to create a large indoor/outdoor entertaining option.
t 85 square metres the sun deck measures double that of many mid-40 metre yachts and includes a circular, air-conditioned, fully-glazed gymnasium. The Jacuzzi is shaded by an awning supported by carbon fibre retractable pillars. For an alternative view there is additional seating and dining space on the foredeck.

The Heesen superstructure is so strong that very few pillars are needed to support it. This means incredible views whether guests are sunbathing, dining or simply relaxing on any deck.
The spectacularly sized main saloon is made up of natural and stained walnut panelling. An exotic and eclectic interior design includes elements of African safari styling and Chinese sculptures. Lacquered inlaid ceilings, etched glass lights and American walnut floorboards are part of the complexity of installation from floor to ceiling.
Interior designers, Omega, worked very closely with the owners on the classic-contemporary interior. Specific requirements for the upper deck saloon included a Steinway grand piano, installed next to a Carrara marble and American walnut bar. The sky lounge benefits from incredible amounts of light due to windows that extend to the full length of the saloon.
Complex pieces, custom built by specialist craftsmen were all installed at the shipyard. From a specially commissioned Art nouveau panel concealing the television in the sky lounge, right through to the staircase connecting the lower, main and upper decks, Heesen precision is evident everywhere.

gUeST VIp CABIn
uest cabins comprise two VIp and two twin cabins on the lower deck all with marble ensuite bathrooms. To minimise weight, Heesen marble veneers are just 3mm thick â&#x20AC;&#x201C; fragile as eggshells, strong as steel.
iping, welding, cabling and all of the mechanical elements were installed with meticulous care and attention with any future maintenance requirements in mind. Heesen builds in forethought.
The wheelhouse is handsomely furnished to create an eďŹ&#x192;cient working environment for the captain. 4 You has two, 16V 4000 M90 engines producing 2.720kW. Their power to weight eďŹ&#x192;ciency is an important factor in our performance advantage.

n 30 years we have delivered over 150 yachts. Our current range of yachts includes aluminium and steel, displacement, semi-displacement and fast displacement hulls from 37-65 metres and beyond. Heesen is recognised as the world leader in aluminium yachts and our 65 metre fast displacement project is 30 per cent more eﬃcient than any other yacht of this size.
Heesen moved into steel production in 2000 as a result of a speciﬁc client request. Indeed 50 per cent of our sales are to existing clients, progressing through options of length, construction material and hull dynamics.
Our Oss shipbuilding complex has nine modern sheds, ﬁve dry docks, over 44.000 square metres of space and the most sophisticated construction programme imaginable: eindhoven
orchestrating the integration of more than four million parts
per year. In 1978 Frans had a visionary idea – today it is a company called Heesen.
