Heesen 55M Fast Displacement
We tracked down the inside scoop on what boatbuilders are up to next.
The excitement in the voice of Heesen’s director of sales and marketing Mark Cavendish was palpable, even as he spoke to me on his cellphone over the din of a Dutch airport. “The hull on the 55M is very efficient, and very fast. She’ll have a top speed of 16.5 knots, which is unusual for a boat this size, and she’ll have a range of 4,000 miles. This fast-displacement hull is the first one we are building, but we are quite confident in it.”
That hull has recently been joined to the 55M’s superstructure, and the build, as you can see, is progressing quite nicely.
