Founded by Frans Heesen in 1978 in Oss, Heesen Yachts was the first Dutch shipyard to employ aluminum for the yacht hulls. Since then they have become a world leader in design, engineering and construction of high-performance motor-yachts. In 1992 they expanded their business to include the construction of traditional displacement yachts, and today they deliver super yachts within the 30 – 80 meters size range, and beyond. The current fleet includes aluminum, steel, displacement, semi-displacement and the new revolutionary fast displacement. Frans Heesen in 1978, drew on the rich talent pool of maritime craftsmen and artisans in The Netherlands. The shipyard claims to be the first in Holland to utilize aluminum alloy in constructing yacht hulls. Heesen Yachts has continued to pioneer the use of aluminum to produce seaworthy yet quick performance super yachts. In 1992, the shipyard added full displacement, steel-hulled motor yachts to its portfolio

Although each vessel is custom built, they all adhere to Heesen’s main principle: The Performance of Luxury. This comes out in the company’s meticulous attention to detail and their incredible reputation within the yachting community. They ensure their build include the latest technology and engineering advancements as well as the time-honored tradition of Dutch craftsmanship. The quality of these builds, both interior and exterior, makes them popular choices on the sales and charter markets.
