Triton

A Heesen Super Yacht designed to cruise the world & explore new horizons

Originally founded by Frans Heesen in 1978 in Oss, Netherlands, Heesen builds the world’s finest yachts with exceptional standards of engineering, outstanding technology and meticulous attention to detail. Research and innovation are part of the Heesen DNA, with the company continually investing in R&D and new technologies.

Dutch shipyard, Heesen Yachts, reveal their newest yacht, Triton, a 50m steel beauty with exteriors by renowned designer Clifford Denn, inspired by the classic car designs of Alpha Spider, Austin Healey, and Old Porsche. The interiors, by British studio Reymond Langton, are a cocoon of pastels and cool tones, creating a linear and clean aesthetic with a tranquil and peaceful ambience to retreat to. A 68 sqm sundeck, complete with a jacuzzi, al fresco dining area, indoor-outdoor sky lounge and beach club, promise the best yachting lifestyle to her future owner. With an exceptional transoceanic range of 3,800 miles and top speed of 15 knots, she is optimised for taking her guests to far-flung, remote destinations.

Iconic shipyard Heesen reveals to the world Project Triton, the second in its coveted 50-metre Steel Class. An on-spec build from Heesen’s bold and successful business model, she is scheduled to undergo sea trials and will then become available to purchase.

At 50 metres, Project Triton is a true blue water motor yacht, designed to provide access to far-flung and remote destinations, with a transoceanic range of 3,800 miles. This gives ultimate freedom for owners looking to cross the Atlantic, or whip around the Mediterranean without stopping for fuel. Powered by two MTU 8V4000 M63 main engines, and featuring a full-displacement steel hull, she reaches a top speed of 15 knots, with a cruising speed of 12 knots.

Internationally renowned designer Clifford Denn penned her exterior lines, creating an elegant profile characterised by flowing curves with elements inspired by classic car design including Austin Healey, Old Porsche and Alfa Spider. Born to turn-heads, her flared bulbous bow and majestic profile won’t go unnoticed off the coast of the South of France, or in the crystal-clear waters of the Caribbean. 

A 68-square-metre sun deck complete with Jacuzzi, al fresco dining area and sun loungers promise the best of the yachting lifestyle. For entertaining, guests are welcomed to the 78-square-metre aft deck, an area complemented by the indoor-outdoor sky lounge. The tender and toys are conveniently stored on the fore deck and guests can enjoy the chic beach club with wellness area at the back.

The layout of Project Triton has been optimised to deliver spacious interior volume, while remaining under the 500GT threshold. Ten guests sleep in five large suites, with the master on the main deck forward and the four large guest cabins on the lower deck. 

Built and engineered by Heesen’s in-house team of experts, Triton is of the highest Dutch quality standards. A peerless combination of the best of building and the best of design.
