Video of Van Oossanen Naval Architects' Hull Vane

Business New-Build

Heesen's latest launch, superyacht Alive, is the first to be Equipped with an under water foil, called the Hull Vane, developed by Van Oossanen Naval Architects.

This video shows the sub-sea wing, which is designed to harness waves to produce power. As a result, Alive is 35 per cent more efficient than any other yacht of her size, in flat sea conditions. In seas with 1-2 metre waves, the Hull Vane generates 20 per cent more thrust and comfort is improved as the pitching is reduced by 40 per cent.
