MYS 2023: Heesen Yachts Unveils New 50m Project GRACE

By Sophia Spanton

Amidst the perfect chaos of the 2023 Monaco Yacht show, Heesen Yachts' CCO, Mark Cavendish, joined Shari Liu in our interview studio. With an exciting announcement, new launches to discuss and insight into Heesen Yachts' sustainability approach, Heesen certainly kicked off the first day of interviews with dynamism.

On the morning of Wednesday the 27th of September, Heesen announced,  ‘we are starting a new 50-metre steel displacement motor yacht’, with designs recently finished by Peder Eidsgaard of Harrison Eidsgaard, the leading superyacht and aviation design company.  She will be ready for delivery in 2027, taking the name, Project GRACE, including features that the CCO said, ' we hope will last and stand the test of time’ , as Heesen designed these to be forward-looking with the future in mind.

The next milestone for Heesen is 80m GENESIS, delivered only three weeks ago to her owners; there was sadly no time to get her to show for this year. With a speed of just under 30 knots and all-aluminium, ‘she's probably the biggest and fastest aluminium motor yacht out there at the moment’ commented Cavendish. With her interior design by Sinot Yacht Architecture & Design, and her exterior design by Winch, she was described as ‘the trinity’ of yacht building.

In terms of any other new launches for the Dutch shipyard, there is also ULTRA G, a custom 60-metre motor yacht, with a top speed of about 27 knots.   An interesting note about this vessel is that the owner has a liking for calamari, and they had ‘calamari lights’ installed, with the CCO telling us that, ' at night you can flock these calamari lights down, it's a very high-intensity light, and it’ll attract calamari!' 

Mention of BlueNautech sparked a conversation on conservation in the marine industry, and Cavendish was eager to explain how increased hull efficiency can make a big difference in the eyes of sustainability.

50m Heesen yacht Amare II

50m Heesen motor yacht Amare II sold

The 49.8-metre Heesen motor yacht Amare II has been sold with Behnemar representing the seller and Iconic Yacht Group introducing the buyer.

She was built under the codename Project Electra and delivered in 2020 as the second hull in Heesen’s 50-metre 5000 class of aluminium yachts. As with her sistership Home , she features a reverse bow paired with a hybrid propulsion system and is optimised for efficiency. 

Her Fast Displacement Hull Form is from the drawing boards of naval architects Van Oossanen while the interior was designed by Cristiano Gatto with styling by Sabrina Monte-Carlo. Amare II  sports exterior design by  Omega Architects ' Frank Laupman.

Extensive use of glass is evident in the main saloon and owner's cabin, situated on the main deck. Accommodation is for a total of 12, with five more cabins on the lower deck, only used privately as the yacht has never been chartered.

Gentle pastel colours and contemporary furnishing is the theme and it makes for a calm and relaxing environment, especially when running in silent mode. Wood soles and considerable use of marble in the bathrooms complement the soft furnishings. There are quarters for a crew of 10.

A well-equipped gym and a sauna, combined with a beach club aft and Jacuzzi up top, encourage healthy living on board.

The 499GT yacht has a maximum speed of 16.3 knots under twin MTU 12V 2000 M61 engines. In silent mode, the vessel runs at a speed of up to nine knots. She has a range of 3,750 nautical miles at 12 knots with Naiad stabilisers to keep her steady.

Presently ABS class, for private use, the broker had pointed out that she could be switched to become commercially classed should the future owner wish to offer her for charter.

Amare II was asking €31,500,000 with VAT paid.

60m superyacht ULTRA G marks Heesen’s first yacht launch for 2023

By Nina Done   2 February 2023

Representing the newest addition to the prestigious Heesen fleet , the 60m (196ft) superyacht ULTRA G , previously known as Project Skyfall , hit the water during a ceremony which took place on January 27 from their Oss facilities in the Netherland's, marking the yard's first superyacht launch for 2023. 

Described by Heesen as the “ultimate expression of the knowledge and experience gained in over forty years of shipbuilding to the finest Dutch quality standards”, the all-aluminum yacht marks a long-standing collaboration between designers, with Omega Architects providing her unique exterior lines, while her engineering and Fast Displacement Hull Form comes courtesy of Van Oossanen Naval Architects. Meanwhile, London-based studio Harrison Eidsgaard is responsible for her chic interior styling.

Yacht ULTRA G launched from Heesen

The ultimate expression of the knowledge and experience gained in over forty years of shipbuilding to the finest Dutch quality standards

The superyacht has been custom-built and designed for a fishing enthusiast. Described by the yard as a “sport fisherman in yacht disguise”, yacht ULTRA G features a fully operable fish cockpit complete with a fighting chair and storage for 40 rods.

Superyacht luxury

When not reeling in big fishing game, the yacht has been primed for entertainment and relaxation, and bestowed with a wealth of amenities, including a media room featuring a vast 146-inch media wall, games area and custom wine fridge in her main salon, as well as an infinity pool on her sundeck.

Interior renderings for superyacht ULTRA G

She even flaunts her status as a dog-friendly yacht, equipped with a dedicated self-flushing “relief area” with synthetic grass, sensors, cameras and sprinklers.

Outstanding performance capabilities

Motor yacht ULTRA G also boasts exceptional power under the bonnet, with her 22,000 horsepower being generated by quad MTU 20V 4000 engines and four Kongsberg S90 waterjets, which help lower the yacht's draft to less than three meters and reduce vibration by 40 per cent compared with traditional shafts and propellers, for a smoother onboard experience. Under light load conditions, she is capable of delivering an impressive top speed of 37 knots.

She will be accompanied by a 24-meter custom built Vanquish tender, which has been designed in the mirror image of its mothership. 

Yacht ULTRA G launched from Heesen

She will provide accommodation for 10 guests across five suites, including a master apartment positioned to offer complete privacy on her bridge deck, featuring a walk-in closet, large en suite with central oval tub and an intimate terrace with a Jacuzzi and inviting lounge area. Her remaining four cabins are found on her lower deck.

She is now ready for commissioning and will undergo rigorous testing in the North Sea, with delivery expected in the coming months following the successful completion of sea trials. It is not expected that superyacht ULTRA G will be available for charter once she’s delivered to her owner.

Bluephire 34

Described as a “sports car of the sea,” Bluephire is an open cruiser with sleek, elegant lines and a low-slung profile. Designed for a Mediterranean lifestyle, the yacht is geared toward indoor-outdoor living and can cover some serious nautical miles. With a beam of almost 23 feet and an interior volume of 230 GT, Bluephire also offers a vast and comfortable interior.

The loft-like living quarters center around a striking glass salon that opens at both ends to connect the interior and exterior. The main living area features a comfortable lounge, a dining area to starboard, and a bar to port. The foredeck is dotted with sun beds, the lower salon is adorned with cozy lounges, and the pilot house offers another relaxation spot near the helm. Bluephire is also outfitted with three staterooms for up to six guests and well-equipped crew quarters. The yacht can be customized to the owner, with several options for color schemes and other details.

In terms of grunt, Bluephire is powered by two MAN V-8 engines rated at 1,000 hp that enable a maximum speed of 35 knots and a range of 450 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 14 knots. You can also opt for two MTU 16V 2000 M96L engines for a range of 370 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 25 knots.

Bluephire is currently for sale with Adrian Soos and Thomas Merlier of Ocean Independence , with an asking price of roughly $12.3 million (€11.5 million). The team says the yacht can be completed in a mere 18 months.

Breaking news, before his summit with kim, putin vows they’ll beat sanctions together.

Thanks for contacting us. We've received your submission.

Russian President Vladimir Putin thanked North Korea for supporting his actions in Ukraine and said their countries would cooperate closely to overcome US-led sanctions as he headed to Pyongyang on Tuesday for a summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Putin’s comments appeared in an op-ed piece in North Korean state media hours before he was expected to arrive in the North for a two-day visit as the countries deepen their alignment in the face of separate, intensifying confrontations with Washington.

Putin, who will be making his first visit to North Korea in 24 years, said he highly appreciates its firm support of his invasion of Ukraine.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un meets Russia's President Vladimir Putin at the Vostochny ?osmodrome in the Amur Oblast of the Far East Region, Russia, September 13, 2023

He said the countries would continue to “resolutely oppose” what he described as Western ambitions to “to hinder the establishment of a multipolarized world order based on mutual respect for justice.”

Putin also said Russia and North Korea will develop unspecified trade and payment systems “that are not controlled by the West” and jointly oppose sanctions against the countries, which he described as “unilateral and illegal restrictive measures.”

North Korea is under heavy UN Security Council economic sanctions over its nuclear weapons and missile programs, while Russia is also grappling with sanctions by the United States and its Western partners over its aggression in Ukraine.

Putin said the countries will also expand cooperation in tourism, culture and education.

Putin’s visit comes amid growing concerns about an arms arrangement in which Pyongyang provides Moscow with badly needed munitions to fuel Putin’s war in Ukraine in exchange for economic assistance and technology transfers that would enhance the threat posed by Kim’s nuclear weapons and missile program.

Putin speaks during his meeting at the Senezh Management School, June 14, 2024, in Solnechnogorsk, Russia.

Military, economic and other exchanges between North Korea and Russia have sharply increased since Kim visited the Russian Far East in September for a meeting with Putin, their first since 2019.

US and South Korean officials have accused the North of providing Russia with artillery, missiles and other military equipment to help prolong its fighting in Ukraine, possibly in return for key military technologies and aid.

Both Pyongyang and Moscow have denied accusations about North Korean weapons transfers, which would violate multiple UN Security Council sanctions Russia previously endorsed.

Along with China, Russia has provided political cover for Kim’s continuing efforts to advance his nuclear arsenal, repeatedly blocking US-led efforts to impose fresh UN sanctions on the North over its weapons tests.

In March, a Russian veto at the United Nations ended monitoring of UN sanctions against North Korea over its nuclear program, prompting Western accusations that Moscow is seeking to avoid scrutiny as it buys weapons from Pyongyang for use in Ukraine.

Earlier this year, Putin sent Kim a high-end Aurus Senat limousine, which he had shown to the North Korean leader when they met for a summit in September.

Observers said the shipment violated a UN resolution banning the supply of luxury items to North Korea.

Putin also said Russia and North Korea will develop unspecified trade and payment systems “that are not controlled by the West”

John Kirby, spokesperson of the US National Security Council, said the deepening relationship between Moscow and Pyongyang is concerning, “not just because of the impacts it’s going to have on the Ukrainian people, because we know North Korean ballistic missiles are still being used to hit Ukrainian targets, but because there could be some reciprocity here that could affect security on the Korean Peninsula.”

“We haven’t seen the parameters of all of that right now, certainly haven’t seen it come to fruition. But we’re certainly going to be watching that very, very closely,” he said.

Tensions on the Korean Peninsulas are at their highest point in years, with the pace of both Kim’s weapons tests and the combined military exercises between the United States, South Korea and Japan intensifying in a cycle of tit-for-tat.

The Koreas have also engaged in a Cold War-style psychological warfare that involved North Korea dropping tons of trash on the South with balloons and the South broadcasting anti-Korean propaganda broadcasts with its loudspeakers.

South Korea’s military said soldiers fired warning shots to repel North Korean soldiers who temporarily crossed the rivals’ land border Tuesday for the second time this month.

The South’s military said North Korean has been increasing construction activity in frontline border areas, such as installing suspected anti-tank barriers, reinforcing roads and planting land mines.

Putin has continuously sought to rebuild ties with Pyongyang as part of efforts to restore his country’s clout and its Soviet-era alliances. Moscow’s ties with North Korea weakened after the 1991 Soviet collapse.

Kim Jong Un first met with Putin in 2019 in Russia’s eastern port of Vladivostok.

After North Korea, the Kremlin said Putin will also visit Vietnam on Wednesday and Thursday for talks that are expected to be focused on trade.

The United States, which has spent years strengthening ties and accelerating trade with Vietnam, criticized Putin’s planned visit.

“As Russia continues to seek international support to sustain its illegal and brutal war against Ukraine, we reiterate that no country should give Putin a platform to promote his war of aggression and otherwise allow him to normalize his atrocities,” a US Embassy spokesperson in Vietnam said in a statement.

Exploring moscow: a journey through time.

Exploring Moscow: A journey through time

Moscow is a city that captivates the senses and enriches the soul, offering a journey through history, culture, and modern marvels. Whether you’re exploring its grand landmarks, indulging in its vibrant festivals, or simply soaking in the atmosphere, Moscow promises an unforgettable adventure writes DIVYA BHATIA

Moscow, the pulsating heart of Russia, is a city where history and modernity dance together in a spectacular ballet. From the majestic Kremlin to the lively boulevards, every inch of Moscow whispers tales of its storied past and bustling present. My exploration of this enigmatic city was nothing short of magical, packed with cultural delights and historical wonders that left me spellbound.

Moscow greets its visitors not just with its iconic landmarks but also with a vibrant cultural scene. The Moscow Tea Time project, for instance, offers a taste of local tradition with its distinctive red and gold porcelain teapots, serving up an array of tea blends and traditional pastries. It’s a cozy experience that warms you from the inside out. Meanwhile, the Moscow Estates project hosts festivals in historic estates, offering a chance to immerse yourself in Russia’s rich heritage through everything from ancient games to modern concerts. These experiences transform a visit to Moscow into a journey through time, leaving you enriched and enchanted.

Moscow’s storied past breathes life into its present

Moscow, the capital of Russia, boasts a rich history that continues to shape its vibrant, modern identity. First mentioned in 1147, Moscow began as a modest settlement but quickly grew into a significant trade and political hub. By the late 13th century, it became the centre of a principality, eventually transforming into the heart of the Grand Duchy of Moscow. Its rise continued solidifying Moscow’s status as the capital of a centralized Russian state. Despite Peter the Great shifting the capital to St. Petersburg in 1712, Moscow remained crucial, playing a key role in Russia’s national identity and resilience, particularly during the Napoleonic Wars in 1812.

Following the Bolshevik Revolution in 1917, Moscow resumed its role as Russia’s capital and became the epicentre of the Soviet Union. The city experienced vast industrialization and became a symbol of Soviet power, marked by landmarks such as the Kremlin and the Lenin Mausoleum. Post-Soviet Moscow, emerging after 1991, embraced economic transformation and cultural revitalization, becoming a dynamic metropolis that intertwines historical richness with contemporary life.

Moscow’s history is vividly present in its architecture, such as the Kremlin and St. Basil’s Cathedral, and its cultural institutions like the State Historical Museum and the Bolshoi Theatre. Monuments and public spaces commemorate significant events and figures, creating a living narrative that enriches the daily lives of Muscovites. Historical districts like Kitay-Gorod preserve the city’s heritage while coexisting with modern development. Through its streets, buildings, and public events, Moscow’s past remains an integral part of its vibrant present, making it a city where history and modernity coexist harmoniously.

Moscow is a traveller’s paradise

Must-See Attractions

The Moscow Kremlin and Red Square

The Kremlin and Red Square are the heart and soul of Moscow, a UNESCO World Heritage site that dazzles with its grandeur and historical significance. From the moment you lay eyes on the Kremlin’s ruby stars and ancient tiles, you’re transported back in time. The Tsar Cannon and Tsar Bell greet you as you enter, relics of Russia’s imperial past that stand as a testament to its powerful history. The Armoury Chamber, brimming with treasures like the Fabergé eggs and royal regalia, offers a glittering glimpse into the opulence of the czarist era.

No visit to Moscow is complete without a stroll through Red Square, where the whimsical domes of St. Basil’s Cathedral create a fantastical skyline. Lenin’s Mausoleum, where the Soviet leader rests, adds a poignant touch to the experience. The Historical Museum and the Cathedral of the Intercession of the Most Holy Theotokos on the Moat add layers to the rich tapestry of Russian history.
