VanTom – Heesen’s 164-foot Semi-Displacement Yacht


Heesen Yachts delivered the sixth yacht in its popular 50-metre (164-foot) semi-displacement series to its owner on Valentine’s Day after several days of testing in the North Sea. VanTom (YN 18050) belongs to the 5000 aluminum class like her sister ship Monaco Wolf and was started as on spec project.
The exterior was designed by Frank Laupman of Omega Architects, while for the interior were in charge Francesco Paszkowski and Margherita Casprini who worked together with the owner.


Captain David Burge commented, “During sea trials, the yacht handled extremely well and gave a very smooth ride, even whilst proceeding at a speed of over 20 knots with a sea running. I am most excited about our maiden voyage down to the Mediterranean Sea and very much look forward to the 2018 summer cruising season.”


The idea for VanTom was to create an environment of unassuming elegance, relaxing and inviting. As part of this atmosphere, Heesen Interiors, the builder’s own joinery and interiors company, custom-made furnishings for the owners. In addition, Paszkowski and Casprini selected dark and light tones of woods and other luxury materials, like leather and stone.


Lacquered surfaces appear throughout VanTom, too. 12 guests will be accommodated in five cabins on the lower deck and the master suite on the main deck. There are quarters for nine crew.
The yacht reached a maximum speed of 23.3 knots (0.3 knots over the contracted speed) and has a range of 3,100 nautical miles at 11 knots.
