Heesen Yachts has inked a deal for a 229-foot fast-displacement superyacht, a design that will be the Dutch yard’s largest build to date.

Plans are for the all-aluminum build to be delivered in spring 2016, as the keel has already been laid and construction can start immediately. Espen Oenio International will handle exteriors while Sinot Design has been tapped for interior décor.

The yacht, known now as YN 17470, will accommodate 12 guests in six staterooms including a main-deck master suite. Four staterooms will be on the lower deck with a VIP cabin on the bridge deck. There also will be quarters for 16 crew.

Amenities will include a main-deck infinity pool, a beach club off the swim platform, a steel-and-glass elevator and a touch-and-go helipad. Top speed is expected to be more than 30 knots.
