Heesen Yachts in the Netherlands has launched the 180-foot Reliance, formerly known as Project Gemini. Construction is on pace for a delivery this fall to the owners.

Reliance is a yacht that Heesen began building on spec. The owner, introduced by Arcon Yachts Monaco, joined the project 15 months into construction. There was still enough time at that point to make changes, including adding an opening window in the master stateroom and creating a new layout for the master bathroom, as well as adding windows in the transom door to allow natural light into the beach club.

The owners chose a shark-gray paint scheme for the Frank Laupman exterior. Resilience is the first yacht that Heesen has collaborated with Luca Dini Design and Architecture for interiors.

Accommodations are for 12 guests in six staterooms, including a main-deck master and a bridge-deck VIP.

Will Reliance be available for charter? Yes. After the yacht is delivered this fall, it is expected to join the Arcon Yachts charter fleet.
