Heesen Project Sparta is a true ‘pocket mega-yacht’

2 MINUTES READ

Project Sparta is the largest steel-hulled displacement motor yacht built by Heesen to date and will be delivered to her Owner in 2023

At 67 metres and with an internal volume of approximately 1,200 Gross Tons, Project Sparta is the largest steel-hulled displacement motor yacht built by Heesen to date. Her ultra-efficient Fast Displacement Hull Form, an iteration of the patented design by van Oossanen, is complimented above the waterline by a dynamic profile from the drawing board of Winch Design. Powered by two MTU 12V4000 M65R diesel engines, she will reach a top speed of 16 knots, with a transatlantic cruising range of 4,500 nautical miles at 12 knots.

Project Sparta’s elegant sheer connects an eye-catching and assertive bow to an inviting transom area that features a stepped aft deck and a 6.5-metre infinity pool. Indoor and outdoor spaces blend harmoniously to create a perfect haven for family life and relaxation. By incorporating a raised pilothouse, Winch Design has given the yacht a bold and sporty profile. Outstanding design maximises every corner of her interior volume in both hull and superstructure. The layout reflects the lifestyle of the Owner, who is an experienced yacht connoisseur. The full beam salon on the main deck, a feature unique on a vessel of this size, makes Project Sparta a true ‘pocket mega-yacht’, as Andrew Winch likes to call her.

The indoor dining area connects seamlessly to the aft deck terrace, sheltered on both sides for optimal comfort both at anchor and when under way. Four guest suites are located forward on the main deck. Thanks to a sliding partition, the two forward cabins can be quickly transformed into a luxurious full beam VIP, offering great versatility to Project Sparta’s guest accommodation. An offset spiral staircase encircling a glass elevator serves all three decks. As well as the crew quarters and galley, the lower deck houses a luxurious walk-in wellness area, complete with oval Jacuzzi, sauna, steam room and gymnasium.

The Owner has reserved the entire bridge deck for himself, with two suites – one located forward with a private outdoor lounge, and the other facing aft, with access to outdoor dining and lounging areas on a private terrace. Up on the sundeck, the focus of attention is the bar and the Jacuzzi, surrounded by large sun pads. A crew of fourteen and two staff will be able to operate quickly and discreetly thanks to carefully designed movement flows on all three decks. Provisioning is made simple thanks to a shell door on the port side, while tenders and toys are conveniently stowed in a forward garage with gull-wing hatches.
