She is the fourth yacht in the builder’s 55-meter Steel series, which has exterior design by Frank Laupman of Omega Architects. Interiors are by Bannenberg & Rowell. The yacht has Van Oossanen’s fast displacement hull form.

Project Castor is the largest 180-footer by volume that’s under construction right now in the Netherlands, according to Heesen. Features will include a full-beam sky lounge, a 785-square-foot master stateroom, and a VIP stateroom on the bridge deck.
