Heesen Yachts in the Netherlands has delivered the 164-foot Project Boreas.
During sea trials in the North Sea, Project Boreas reportedly hit 20 knots, which, according to Heesen, exceeds the contractual speed. She’s built of aluminum.
The Fast Displacement Hull Form is by Van Oossanen, also in the Netherlands. Power comes from twin 1,450-horsepower MTU 12V 2000M72 engines. Exteriors are by Frank Laupman of Omega Architects, while Mark Whiteley worked with the owner on interiors.
Heesen says that inside, there is bespoke loose furniture in all the exterior living areas. The main staircase includes a nickel mesh wall covering by French artist Sophie Mallebranche.
