With lockdown guidelines still enforced in many parts of the world in some form or another, Heesen Yachts recently made a unique walkthrough tour of its brand new 50-metre superyacht project Triton. The guided tour gives viewers an insight into the layout of this superyacht and the level of finish and quality achieved by the Dutch yard’s in-house team of craftsmen and women. 

Built completely on spec to Heesen’s customary exacting standards, project Triton represents a golden opportunity for an owner looking for a brand new yacht. The 50-metre platform that she is built on has been optimised to deliver the largest possible volume while still remaining under the 500GT threshold.

A true bluewater motor yacht built to typical Dutch quality, project Triton is powered by two MTU diesel engines of 1000kW each for a maximum speed of 15 knots and an oceanic range of 3,800nm at 12 knots. Her full displacement round bilge hull with bulbous bow ensures safe and smooth sailing even in adverse conditions.Heesen YN 18850 yacht Project Triton in OssPhoto: Dick Holthuis

The traditional flared bow with a reverse sheer line is a classic Heesen motif, whereas the forward-leaning wheelhouse windscreen provides a rugged touch. For sure, her bold profile will turn heads wherever she goes.Heesen YN 18850 Project Triton yacht interiorPhoto: Heesen YachtsHeesen YN 18850 Project Triton yacht interiorPhoto: Heesen Yachts

The contemporary interior design is by Reymond Langton, one of the industry’s leading design studios. Casual yet sophisticated, clean yet cosy, the interior makes use of contrasting colours and materials such as light Tanganyika, dark American walnut and taupe Carvalho for the veneers and joinery, as well as brown Armani marble, Volga blue marble, ivory pearlised finishes and bronzed detailing.
