Sold new Heesen motor yacht Project Antares


Project Antares, also known as YN 18455, has been sold to American client.    



Project Antares is a 
55 metre fast displacement motor yacht that can accommodate 12 guests in six luxurious cabins.  

This is the second project that has been secured by Thom Conboy of Heesen Yachts in 2017, and his third since joining Heesen Yachts as US representative.


Her defined exterior lines are the work of Omega Architects, and all together Antares encompasses an impressive volume of 740 Gross Tonnes.
Design is 
contemporary Italian design with the ingenious engineering typical of this Dutch shipyard.

Progressuve hull design is devised by 
Van Oossanen Naval Architects.
Project Antares offers a maximum speed of 16 knots and frugal fuel consumption, resulting in a remarkable range of 4,500 nautical miles at 13 knots.

Marketing director at Heesen Yachts said that the one of the most interesting features on the boat will be that she’s being set up to act as a sort of mothership to the owner’s fishing boat — he’s a keen sportfisherman so he wanted a much bigger yacht to base his operations from. 

She will be delivered to her owners in November 2018.
