Balk Shipyard is well underway with the construction of the new bow section for the 41.30 metre Heesen superyacht Seven Sins. The unusual project being undertaken at the shipyard is part of a major extension of the yacht.
The task will involve cutting several metres off Seven Sins and then adding the longer bow in order to create a longer foreship. When relaunched, she will also comply with Large Yacht 3 regulations, making the project exceptionally complex.
Built in 2005 by Heesen, both the interior and exterior design of the superyacht is by Omega Architects. She features semi-gloss cherry wood panelling, a teak and ebony parquetry floor and Makassar furniture throughout.
The Balk Shipyard facility are also currently working on a number of different projects, including commercial refit work on a coast guard vessel and the construction of aluminium parts for a Heesen new build project.
