The Heesen Story

Pioneering Excellence

The Heesen Story

The Semi-Custom Superyacht Model

Heesen was founded in 1978 in the town of Oss, the Netherlands by Frans Heesen. Having had a background in the hi-tech plastics industry before moving into yachting, he was able to combine his knowledge with the talented maritime craftsmen and artisans in this area, and it was this that led to the use of aluminium in superyacht hull design. 

The Heesen Story

Breakthrough Fast Displacement Yachts

In 1992 the superyacht builder expanded the business to include the construction of traditional displacement yachts, and in 2003, Heesen Yachts was the first luxury superyacht builder to introduce the semi-custom superyacht model, with their breakthrough "fast displacement" superyachts.
