Heesen Yachts in the Netherlands has tapped British studio Harrison Eidsgaard to design the shipyard’s 50-meter Steel series that was announced in October at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.

The new, 164-foot model will come in at 499 gross tons with a Fast Displacement steel hull and the option of hybrid power.

Heesen says the interior layout will include sliding windows in the main salon, separate crew routing for discreet and efficient service, and stowage forward for tenders and toys, leaving the split-level aft deck open for guests with an infinity pool. Accommodations will include six staterooms for 12 guests.

“An earlier collaboration between Heesen and Harrison Eidsgaard resulted in the award-winning Irisha, delivered in 2017,” Rick van de Wetering, chief operating officer at Heesen, stated in a press release. “We appreciate the precision and thorough organization of their design processes. This new 50-metre Steel series is Harrison Eidsgaard’s interpretation of Heesen’s DNA, and our know-how in engineering and building successful series yachts.”

What other features are expected to be on board? Harrison Eidsgaard is talking about a “unique coffee table” on the sundeck that doubles as an atrium skylight.
