The builder of custom luxury yachts, Heesen, was founded in 1978 by Frans Heesen in the Netherlands and was the first Dutch shipyard to employ aluminium alloy for building yacht hulls. In 1979 the company built its first yacht, Amigo. 9 years later Heesen introduced to the market the fastest luxury yacht in the world, Octopussy, a 38 m yacht with a top speed of 50 knots. The real transition came in 1990 with the launch of, Heesen's first +40m yacht ever built, the l'Aquisition a 44 m super yacht. The company continued to establish itself as one of the super yacht world leaders and as one of the most successful luxury yachts builders in the world. Since its creation, Heesen built and delivered over 150 yachts. Many of them are award winners, and some of them are available for luxury yacht charter around the world with the Windward Islands yachting company including the luxury motoryacht Alcor, the fantastic 41.3 m luxury motoryacht Seven Sins and last but not least the amazing 45.72 m luxury motoryacht Sea Dweller. A Heesen luxury yacht charter is a perfect choice that we highly recommend if you are willing to enhance your next vacations.
