HEESEN yachts history
The Netherlands has always been home to inventive and hardworking maritime workers of all kinds. This is the case now, and it was very much so in 1978. This was the year Frans Heesen founded his yacht building company, and he had the skill and knowledge of many sea-savvy workers to rely on.
Heesen used aluminum for the hull of the vessels he built to produce fast and strong boats. He claims to be the first yachting company in Holland to use aluminum in this way.
Over the years, Heesen yachts has continued to maintain its lead in producing high-performance, luxury superyachts.
Today, Heesen produces some of the fastest yachts in the industry and some of the most fuel-efficient ones. This means that its yachts can travel very long distances in comparison to traditional superyachts.
Heesen has been responsible for many notable yacht launches since it began operating in 1978. One of its more recent launches in 2019 is Toute Sweet, a 163 foot gem with an estimate value of $75 million.
Heesen has successfully launched 115 superyachts in 43 years. This company is a testament to grit and the benefits of creative solutions, even in a saturated market.
