“Venus” finds an owner 


The Dutch shipbuilder Heesen Yachts has announced the sale of the 55m Steel YN 20655. Codename of this project is “Venus”.

Project “Venus”, currently under construction, is progressing swiftly, with the launch scheduled in January 2025. The delivery of YN 20655 is scheduled for Q2 2025.

The construction of Project “Venus” commenced in November 2022. Its slender steel hull, an iteration of van Oossanen Naval Architects’ ultra-efficient FDHF design, was meticulously fabricated at Talsma in Friesland, the Netherlands. Talsma, a trusted partner of Heesen for over a decade, has worked in close collaboration with Heesen’s engineers. To maintain the highest quality, the fabrication of steel hulls takes place at a separate location to prevent cross-contamination with our aluminium hulls, which are welded at our facility in Oss, the yacht builder explains.

Boasting a voluminous 760 GT enclosed space, Project “Venus” offers ample room while remaining small enough to enter the ports of the Mediterranean. With exceptional seakeeping abilities, “Venus” is a true blue-water motor yacht that ensures safe cruising even in rough seas, Heesen says. Furthermore, the forward positioning of the stabilizer fins and the solid steel hull contribute to an exceptionally comfortable cruising experience.

The owner of the “Venus” returns to Heesen

Rupert Connor from Luxury Yachts is representing the client, who is a former client of Heesen. Rupert comments: “Returning to Heesen was an easy choice for our client. We know that their high-quality standards and desire to exceed our needs will result in yet another fabulous build. There is no other shipyard in the world where you can sign for a yacht in June and they deliver in ten months a high-quality yacht customized to our needs. Their revised 55m platform offers a ‘best in class’ layout and engineering platform. Our whole build support team is thrilled to be working with Heesen again”.

Heesen CEO Niels Vaessen expresses his delight with the return of this esteemed client, stating, “The return of a valued client is a testament to the exceptional quality and reliability of our yachts. It reaffirms our commitment to delivering a product that exceeds expectations and meets the highest standards of luxury and performance. The satisfaction and loyalty displayed by returning clients inspire us to continually push the boundaries of innovation and craftsmanship.”
