Heesen Yachts

Heesen Yachts recently announced the delivery of Moskito, previously known as Project Pollux. The 55-meter with a Gross Tonnage of 760 GT is the second yacht delivered by Heesen in 2021. The superyacht’s exteriors are penned by Omega Architects, who have characterized Moskito as a ‘shark-tooth’ superstructure with vertical windows and overhangs on the second deck, epitomizing the idea of elegance on the water. The design features the latest iteration of van Oossanen’s ultra-efficient Fast Displacement Hull Form. Powered by IMO III-compliant MTU 8V 4000 M63s, it offers frugal fuel consumption of just 150 liters per hour at 11 knots for truly economical passage-making.

Her interiors are by London-based studio Bannenberg & Rowell is both luxurious and laid-back. ‘It works equally well whether you’re in shorts and a T-shirt or dressed for dinner’, said Dickie Bannenberg. The décor combines bold solutions with casual appeal, as seen, for example, in the main saloon’s dark eucalyptus and pale sycamore joinery and chevron parquet flooring. Other features to note include softly radiused paneling and an eye-catching bar installation. Moskito’s well-appointed amenities are illuminated by floor-to-ceiling windows and open bulwarks, whose sweeping sea-to-sky vistas immerse guests in the beauty of the environment. Moskito has a six-stateroom layout, including a master suite for the owner, and five staterooms for 10 guests. The 13 crew are housed in seven cabins.

After delivery, Moskito will depart for her maiden voyage to Malta. Captain Phil Larkin and his 12 crew will take her non-stop over 2,800 nautical miles via the 81 waypoints of the passage plan – an authentic shakedown cruise, ideal for testing their brand new yacht in all conditions.

Captain Larkin comments: ‘I have been in this industry for 24 years, 19 as a captain, and have worked with many different shipyards around the world. This is my first experience with Heesen, and I must say I am impressed by their level of professionalism. I want to express particular gratitude to Heesen’s delivery team for their great help in these final stages. We truly enjoyed working with them all, and our professional relationship has been enriched with true friendship’.
