Heesen has set the tone for another impressive year with the launch of its first yacht of 2023: Ultra G.
Previously known under her build name of Project Skyfall, Ultra G takes the title of the Dutch shipbuilder’s most powerful yacht yet, boasting 22,000 horsepower and a top speed of 37 knots.
The 196.8-ft yacht was a full-custom build, with the Heesen design team working closely to owner’s unique requirements. Among these was a desire to retain a sense of privacy onboard. As such, although the interiors have been designed for socializing, the bridge deck’s aft is reserved solely for private use.
Here, the owner can enjoy all the comforts of the master apartment, which includes a private terrace with a jacuzzi, a walk-in wardrobe and a spacious bathroom complete with a bath and separate shower.
In the main saloon, a custom wine fridge with discrete separate compartments for different temperatures acts as a centerpiece. The sleek space opens directly out onto a stylish sundeck with an infinity pool, creating ample opportunity for indoor-outdoor living.
Other owner requirements included needing extra details to ensure their pet dogs were as safe and stress-free as possible at sea. Among these extra pet-friendly features is the unique ‘relief area’, a self-flushing area of the side deck complete with synthetic grass, sensors, cameras and sprinklers.
Ultra G will offer space for up to ten overnight guests throughout her cabins, with room for a total of thirteen crew. Smart separate stairwells not only maintain guest privacy but also allow for seamless service across the yacht.
While Ultra G has all the features of a luxury superyacht, according to owner specifications, she doubles as a practical sport fisherman with cockpit, fighting chair and storage for 40 rods.
Responsible for the yacht’s striking exterior was Frank Laupman of Omega Architects, who used strong muscular shapes and a contrasting color scheme. Accompanying the finished build is a matching custom tender.
While Ultra G is Heesen’s first launch of 2023, the shipyard has a further 15 vessels currently under construction, four of which are set to be delivered this year.
