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 steel 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. Our expertise in weight reduction allows for the inclusion of exotic materials â&#x20AC;&#x201C; marble, granite, rare woods and even metals, without compromising performance. Indeed a Heesen is a Heesen because we are dedicated to one principle: the performance of luxury.
y Secret is our ninth 47 metre, steel displacement yacht. Her specially developed bulbous bow creates an anti-wave for a smoother path through the water. The result of this hull efficiency is a reduction in the engine power needed to achieve any given speed. Less power required means less fuel used. My Secret attains a maximum speed of 15 knots and was specifically designed to create the largest possible internal volume under 500GT.
With a 4.000 mile range, My Secret is powerful and economical with great stability both underway and at anchor using her zero speed stabilizers.
he 20 metre sundeck has enough space to provide three separate areas: soak up the sun in a forward Jacuzzi almost entirely surrounded by sunpads; sit in the shade at the central bar and deck lounge or relax on the huge curved sofa that extends across the entire beam of the deck.
Three areas on the sun deck; three dining options â&#x20AC;&#x201C; My Secret has everything covered in triplicate.
n the upper deck, the large covered dining terrace has infinity views thanks to thin pillars and glass bulwarks. A second dining area on the foredeck provides privacy when in port. The third option is on the main deck with a table surrounded by built-in sofas.
nteriors by Bannenberg and Rowell evoke Californian style of the 1940s and 1950s. The finest woods, stones and metals have been expertly integrated with our trademark precision and dedication to weight reduction. The result â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a striking design that eďŹ&#x20AC;ortlessly combines practicality and extravagant style. Bronze, leather and light and mid-tone wenge detailing have been used throughout the yacht, with intricate panels laid on the floors and other areas.
The sky lounge is a fusion of beautiful materials and textures. The concept was to combine vintage furniture pieces with contemporary panelling and other surfaces using the same colour tones. The skill was to flawlessly combine the two eras into the highest common denominator.
n the main deck, bleached wenge ďŹ&#x201A;oorboards, white elm panelling and stainless steel, leather and marble details evoke the classic Hollywood era. The entire yacht is an exceptionally complex design that includes innovative features such as the back-lit marble wall with inset candle holders. Integrating delicate materials is a particular challenge for which we are very proud of our reputation.
Throughout this yacht all of the panelling and cabinetry has been crafted from light and mid-tone wenge and white elm, this tricolour of timbers comes together in the striking three-tone pattern doors and floors. Furniture and panelling have been built by Heesen Yachts Interiors and Sinnex working together as a team. Every join is perfect, every book panel â&#x20AC;&#x201C; perfect. Normal standards for Heesen.
he full-beam, main deck master suite features a large study and an impressive bathroom, with a white Statuario marble floor embedded with waves of dark Noir St. Laurent marble. The enormous bath was installed in the centre of the room and clad in dark wenge and silver travertine tiles.
right colours and patterns in the four lower deck guest cabins draw on the fashionable style of Palm Springs, with white elm and pale leather oďŹ&#x20AC;set by fabrics from Armani Casa and Amy Lau. Two double and two twin cabins are augmented by Pullman berths. My Secret sleeps a total of 12 guests.
