Heesen has announced the sale of YN 19480 - Project Cosmos – an 80.07-metre all-aluminium FDHF motor yacht which is scheduled for delivery in April 2022 and is the yard's largest superyacht project to date.
At 80.07 metres, 1,700 Gross Tons and reaching a top speed of 29 knots, upon completion, Project Cosmos will be the world’s largest and fastest full-aluminium motoryacht with conventional propeller propulsion system, with a FDHF by van Oosanen naval architects and four MTU 20V diesel engines.
The British studio Winch Design has created a streamlined yacht with innovative design traits, with muscular sportiness and timeless elegance in her design. The extensive use of glass and the combination of soft and sculpted shapes make Project Cosmos a yacht packed full of contemporary charm.
On board, some of her more notable features will include the fully-rated helicopter landing pad for a Eurocopter EC135 which transforms into an outdoor cinema, the crystal elevator from the lower deck to the sun deck for easy accessibility and the seven-metre pool with contra-jets which is paired with a waterfall and a glass bottom. Her generous beach club will include a sunken walk-around bar, a large transom and side platforms. In addition, Project Cosmos will also come complete with a full-custom limousine tender from Winch design.
Twelve guests will be accommodated in four well-appointed suites on the lower deck, comprising a VIP with an adjacent private studio on the bridge deck, and a master stateroom on the main deck forward. A crew of 19 across 11 cabins will also be accommodated for on board.
Project Cosmos follows on from Heesen's recent success in the 60 metre-plus market segment, including the 65-metre Galactica Star in 2013, the 70-metre Galactica Super Nova in 2016, and the 60-metre Project Falcon which was sold last month.
