Heesen Yachts: Delivers YN 16650 M/Y Monaco Wolf

Heesen Yachts delivers YN 16650 M/Y Monaco Wolf
Heesen Yachts is proud to announce that on June 2, 2014 M/Y Monaco Wolf – YN 16650 – was delivered to her owners after intensive sea trials in the North Sea. Powered by the latest MTU 16V 4000 M73L engines, the vessel with her well-engineered all-aluminium, semi-displacement hull exceeded the contractual speed by 0.4 knots with very low levels of noise and vibrations.Monaco Wolf’s highly distinctive flowing lines are designed by Frank Laupman of Omega Architects and embody the Heesen family look and feel with its iconic reverse sheer ‘pelican beak’ bow. Her elegant interior design has been created by acclaimed Italian designer Francesco Paszkowski. Owner’s representative Howard Lowe from Royale Oceanic commented: “During the first day of sea trials we had the chance to test the vessel in moderate weather conditions with wind Force 3–4 and waves around one metre. We met all the requirements and the yacht performed well. M/Y Monaco Wolf is now ready to be extensively used and enjoyed during the summer season in the Med.”
This positive result was possible thanks to the efficient team work between Heesen shipyard and the owner’s team who strenuously worked together to deliver a vessel that will exceed the owner’s expectations.
”It doesn’t get any better than this,” commented Rupert Nelson, Sales Director for Burgess in Monaco. “From contract signing in early February, to delivery on June 2, in just four short months this experienced owner will be enjoying his new yacht. This is a fitting testimony to Heesen shipyard’s continued commitment to providing pedigree yachts with reduced delivery times that the current market seems addicted to.
Founded by Frans Heesen in 1978 in Oss, the Netherlands, Heesen Yachts was the first Dutch shipyard to employ aluminium alloy for building yacht hulls. Since then the yard has become a world leader in the design, engineering and construction of high performance, all-aluminium motoryachts.
In 1992, Heesen Yachts expanded their business to include the construction of displacement, long-range steel-hulled yachts. Today, the company can deliver magnificent private yachts within the 34 to 75 metres size range and beyond.
In 35 years we have delivered nearly 170 yachts. The current fleet includes aluminium and steel, semi-displacement and displacement yachts, and the new revolutionary Fast Displacement Hull Form (FDHF). Twelve yachts are currently under construction and their deliveries span through to 2017.
Heesen is financially secure, large enough to cope with complex construction, small enough to care about each project, motivated to pioneer innovations and dedicated to continuing the tradition of Dutch quality shipbuilding.
