Heesen Yachts in the Netherlands has sold its biggest yacht to date: the 262-foot Project Cosmos, scheduled for delivery in 2022.

Project Cosmos, with a projected top speed of 29 knots, is expected to become the world’s largest and fastest all-aluminum motoryacht with conventional propeller propulsion. Her Fast Displacement Hull Form by Van Oossanen will be powered by four MTU 20-V engines.

Winch Design has been tapped for design. Features are expected to include a helipad that converts to an outdoor cinema; a “crystal elevator” from the lower deck to the sundeck; a 23-foot pool with a waterfall, glass bottom and contraflow jets for swimming; a beach club with a sunken bar; and a custom limousine tender (also by Winch Design).

Project Cosmos will take 12 guests in four lower-deck staterooms, a bridge-deck VIP stateroom and a main-deck master. There also will be 11 cabins for 19 crew.

Additional news from Heesen: The hull and superstructure have been joined on Project Aster. She's a 164-foot yacht that's still available for purchase; delivery is scheduled in June 2019.
