Heesen Yachts joind hull and superstructure of VENUS.

Project Venus, a member of the prestigious 55 Steel series, stands out with its impressive length of over 55 meters and internal volume of 760 GT. It is the only 55-meter superyacht in Northern Europe currently available for purchase. Venus offers a unique opportunity for discerning clients to own a yacht with Dutch heritage, built to the highest quality standards, and with a shorter delivery time.

In the early 2000s, Heesen revolutionized the superyacht industry by introducing the concept of building a small series of yachts on speculation. This innovative approach allowed the shipyard to optimize material procurement, streamline the construction process, and reduce delivery times, all while maintaining the exclusive aesthetics and atmosphere associated with yachts of this caliber. Clients who prioritize exceptional quality performance efficiency and value their yacht’s strength, safety, and comfort in any sea conditions will find an unparalleled opportunity in Venus. This 55-meter Steel yacht will provide the perfect platform for creating unforgettable experiences with loved ones.

The yacht can reach a top speed of 15.5 knots and travel up to 4,500 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 13 knots thanks to its two MTU4000 M63 (IMO Tier III) engines. Despite its steel construction and 600-ton half-load displacement, the yacht’s fuel consumption is low at around 210 liters per hour, excluding the hotel load. Heesen’s expertise in weight management has been applied to both lightweight aluminum yachts and steel-hulled vessels, resulting in impressive performance across all speeds. The combination of this construction technique and the Fast Displacement Hull form developed by van Oossanen and engineered by Heesen ensures exceptional performance.

Interior of superyacht VENUS

The interior design of Project Venus, crafted by Luca Dini Design and Architecture, is truly one-of-a-kind. Silvia Margutti, the head designer of this project, highlights the daring yet welcoming identity of Venus’ interior. The design is a testament to the exceptional craftsmanship of Heesen Interior, with a focus on contrasts and unique harmony. With its in-house fine cabinet-making workshop, Heesen is among the select few shipyards in the world that can offer exquisite finishes, reflections, and textures. Venus boasts six spacious staterooms that accommodate up to twelve guests, including an 82-square-meter owners’ quarters on the main deck with a private veranda on the starboard side for a secluded outdoor experience.

The outdoor areas, spanning 252 square meters, have been meticulously designed to provide the perfect setting for al fresco dining, entertaining, and relaxation. The sundeck, measuring 110 square meters, stands out as the centerpiece, offering versatility and an ideal layout for impeccable crew service, complete with double stair access. A luxurious whirlpool adjacent to the bar captivates attention with its breathtaking view of the horizon and the surrounding natural beauty. A hard top protects the sundeck’s bar and lounge area and features comfortable sofas and armchairs arranged around coffee tables. The sun loungers on the aft also provide an ideal vantage point for observing the world while cruising.

Moving to the bridge deck, the aft terrace boasts a bespoke expandable round table for al fresco dining. An aft lounge is perfect for entertaining guests before transitioning to the dining area. Flush sliding doors connect the sky lounge to the terrace, creating a luxurious indoor-outdoor space. After dinner, guests can retreat indoors for coffee and drinks. The upper pantry, equipped with a dumbwaiter, enables the crew to deliver exceptional service.

On the main deck, the aft terrace features comfortable built-in settees and accesses the fixed swim platform via double stairs. By strategically placing the tender and toys forward on the main deck, we have freed up 35 square meters to create a remarkable beach club. This area includes a wellness area with a sauna, day head, shower, and a fully serviced bar, making it one of the most sought-after spaces on board Venus.
