Heesen has announced the sale of its latest superyacht: project Sparta, which is due for delivery in 2023. With both exteriors and interiors from the drawing boards of the London-based studio Winch Design, the 67-metre steel fast-displacement full form (FDHF) yacht was first presented as Project Avanti at the 2017 Monaco Yacht Show.
The new owner of Project Sparta (hull number YN 20067) is an experienced charterer and "fell in love with [her] dynamic architecture" according to the shipyard. Arcon Yachts has been appointed by the owner as project manager for the vessel.
In terms of design, Sparta's elegant sheer line connects a strong bow to an inviting transom which has a stepped aft deck area equipped with a five-metre infinity pool. The incorporation of a raised pilothouse gives the vessel a sporty profile and she is able to reach a top speed of 16 knots which is aided by her efficient FDHF devised by Van Oossanen Naval Architects.
Sparta has 1,200 GT of interior volume and accommodates her guests across a full-beam main saloon and four additional guest suites located on the main deck. Thanks to the presence of a sliding partition, the two forward cabins can be transformed into a luxury full-beam VIP suite. Guests will be looked after by a crew of up to fifteen and a nanny.
On board, the indoor dining area connects seamlessly to the aft deck terrace which is protected on both sides, with all three decks serviced by a glass elevator located in an off-centre spiral staircase.
On the lower deck, a walk-in wellness area can be found featuring an oval Jacuzzi, sauna, steam room and gymnasium. The owner's quarters encompass the entire bridge deck: one suite is located forward - containing its own private, outdoor lounge - and one faces aft with access to a private terrace for outdoor lounging and dining. In addition, a Jacuzzi with bar and sun pads provides the focal point of the sundeck.
A shell door located on the port side enables easy provisioning to the vessel, with her tenders and toys located in the forward garage.
With her delivery date set for 2023, project Sparta is the third new project sale for the Dutch yard this year, following in the footsteps of projects SkyFall and Castor, whose sales were announced in September and May respectively.
