Heesen launches Project Nova


Heesen Yachts has launched Project Nova, the first Fast Displacement Hull Form (FDHF) with hybrid propulsion.

The yachts owner christened the yacht HOME in a ceremony in Oss. The yachts exterior was designed by Omega Architects. Interior will be decorated by Cristiano Gatto Design.

HOME will remain in harbour at Oss to commence the commissioning of her systems before being moved to Rotterdam to undergo sea trials. The yacht will be delivered to its owner in June.

The 50m motoryacht is designed to be as quiet as possible. This is achieved through two 127 kW water cooled DC electric shaft motors. As a hybrid yacht, HOME offers diesel mechanical and diesel electrical propulsion, with a transatlantic range of 3,750nm.
