Last week the keel laying ceremony of project Zeus (yard number 249) took place at Scheepswerf Made. This 63.30 metre motoryacht will be Hakvoort's largest superyacht to date.
Her unique contemporary profile is designed by René van der Velden to some very specific requirements from the owner.
A fresh and bold approach to the modern classic look reflects a style called streamlining, which was very popular in the 1930s and 40s.
A streamliner is a vehicle or vessel given a specific shape that reduces air resistance: Examples include the famous ferry Kalakala and the record-breaking car Bluebird.
This is the first time streamlining has been so clearly integrated into the design of a superyacht.
Diana Yacht Design is responsible for the naval architecture and the interior will come from the boards of Sinot Yacht Design. The sale was arranged in close cooperation with Moran Yacht & Ship.
