Home and Electra are both the result of Heesen’s ever-increasing desire to minimize its impact on the environment. The hybrid solution uses an ultra-efficient Fast Displacement Hull Form, which reduces fuel consumption by up to 20 percent in eco-friendly silent-mode.

Electra offers both diesel mechanical and diesel electrical propulsion. Either source can be used independently or simultaneously, providing more flexible power management. The system eliminates the need for a battery, reducing the weight of the yacht drastically.
Her chic, sophisticated and calm interior is the work of renowned Venetian designer Cristiano Gatto. The bespoke furnishes have been handcrafted with soft edges to create unbroken flowing lines to create harmony with the sea views.
Much focus is given to her sky lounge, which has been designed to create the illusion of being on a veranda overlooking the ocean. The glass sliding doors open up onto a spacious terrace, creating a borderless indoor-outdoor space.
Electra is due to undergo intensive sea trials in the North Sea before being delivered in April.
