Heesen Yachts in the Netherlands has launched the 220-foot Sparta. It is the yard’s largest-ever steel motoryacht, having grown out of the Project Avanti concept that Heesen presented with Winch Design at the Monaco Yacht Show in 2018.

Sparta is in final commissioning, before heading to the North Sea for sea trials ahead of delivery to the owners.

According to Heesen, “The design has remained true to the original concept, with only minor adjustments made to the swimming pool. Winch Design expertly incorporated Heesen’s DNA to create a unique, low-profile, sporty and elegant yacht that looks simply stunning on the water.”

Sparta’s exterior is snow white with metallic Venetian red and metallic anthracite gray accents. The yacht has a reverse bow and sweep of thermo-bonded tinted glass from bow to stern.

Onboard features include a full-beam salon connected to an open-air beach terrace with a 21-foot infinity pool. Winch Design penned the custom outdoor furniture, which was built by Siebensee and Leerdam. A custom limo tender that Heesen calls “a mini version of the mothership” stows with the water toys behind gullwing doors in a forward garage.

Interior volume is 1,200 gross tons. There are two owner’s suites on a private deck and four guest staterooms on the main deck. A movable partition separates the forward guest staterooms, which can become a full-beam VIP or a playroom for younger family members.

A glass elevator serves all three decks. The lower deck has a Japanese-inspired wellness area with an elliptical whirlpool, steam room, sauna, gym and beauty area.

Interior design themes on every deck: Each of Sparta’s three decks has a different theme. The lower deck is water (with dining chairs upholstered in palm leaf), the main deck is earth (with a coffee table made from oak trunk), and the upper deck is air and space (with constellation wall artwork).
