Heesen Yachts in The Netherlands has revealed more details about Project Cosmos, which the shipyard [sold earlier this year]. The 262-foot aluminum yacht will be the builder’s largest — and with a projected top speed of 29 knots, she’s also expected to be the fastest in her class.

Project Cosmos will be built on Heesen’s Fast Displacement Hull Form with a newly patented backbone that the builder says is reminiscent of an I-girder. Power will be four MTU engines with a total of 19,000 horsepower.

Winch Design is handling exteriors, while Sinot Exclusive Yacht Design has been tapped for interiors.
