Heesen Yachts in the Netherlands says the 164-foot spec yacht Project Jade has had its engines installed, and its hull and superstructure joined. It remains on track for a spring 2024 delivery date.

Project Jade is the third hull in the same semi-displacement series, in which clients can purchase and customize a yacht after construction has begun, to shorten the delivery time.

Heesen says Project Jade has exterior lines by Omega Architects and a projected top speed of 23 knots.

“This combination of speed and shallow draft makes the design ideal for cruising in shallow coastal waters such as the Bahamas, as well as the crystal-clear waters of the Mediterranean,” Heesen’s chief commercial officer, Friso Visser, stated in a press release.

The hull on Project Jade is aluminum. Power comes from two IMO III-compliant MTU 16V 4000 M65L engines.

Who is handling interior design for Project Jade? Cristiano Gatto, with Heesen calling the onboard vibe cozy and contemporary.
