Heesen Yachts introduces new series of semi-custom yachts
After the great success of its 3700 series, Heesen Yachts is now introducing a series of 40 metre semi-custom yachts; the 4000 series. Heesen is the first yacht builder to launch a series of fast luxury yachts of such a length.
“On our new 4000 series, clients can enjoy three more metres of passion, performance and perfection”, says Nancy Jansen of Heesen, referring to the company’s new slogan. Space on board is further increased by using seawater cooling units in the engine room, enabling the size of the ventilation trunks in the salon to be reduced. The 3700’s tender garage area, including the large transom door which functions as a swim platform, has not been changed. The galley on the main deck, however, is larger than it used to be.
Greater interior flexibility
The 4000 series’ interior is not only larger, but also more flexible than the 3700’s, with three pre-designed guest cabin arrangements. As for the owner’s cabin, clients can choose between a walk-in wardrobe or maximum cabin space. For the crew’s quarters, which were also enlarged, there is a choice between four crew cabins for seven members or three cabins for six crew members plus a laundry.
Two engine options
The 4000 series comes with two engine options: 2 MTU 16V4000M90 engines, delivering 2,720 kW each, which enables a maximum speed of approx. 30 knots. Or 2 MTU 16V4000M93L engines, delivering 3,440 kW each, enabling a maximum speed of approx. 33 knots.
The 4000 series can be delivered with a range of optional equipment, for which the foundations are already integrated in the yacht’s construction. These options include stability at anchor system for additional comfort, a rescue boat arrangement on the flybridge deck for full compliance with the large commercial yacht code (LY2), and a stern thruster for increased manoeuvrability.
