On Board… Lusine

Leading Dutch shipyard Heesen is admired around the world, with a reputation for building the most refined, luxurious and revolutionary superyachts. Heesen create exquisitely beautiful yet powerful superyachts that are revered for their state-of-the-art technology, timeless design and exceptional performance. 

Now there is a new addition to the Heesen family…

At the Monaco Yacht Show 2022 Heesen debuted MY Lusine in the full custom category. Lusine is a groundbreaking unveiling for Heesen as it is the largest-ever steel Fast Displacement motor yacht. At 60-metres with an enclosed volume of 1,079 GT, Lusine reaches an impressive maximum speed of 17.5 knots during sea trails, with noise and vibration levels below the required limits.

Heesen’s fleet is expanding by stratospheric proportions with 12 yachts currently under construction and deliveries scheduled throughout 2025. Lusine has truly raised the bar in terms of incredible quality, exquisite detail and complex construction.

Lusine is a great beauty with Omega Architects contracted for the exterior design and one of the most elaborate and complex interiors ever crafted at Heesen Yachts Interiors. Lusine is a celestial dream, a love letter to the moon and the stars from the magical imagination of Sinot Yacht Architecture and Design. Sinot’s philosophy derives development without compromise and Lusine’s poetic connection to the mystery and beauty of the galactic is a marvel.

Sinot Yacht Architecture and Design and Omega worked together closely to create a harmonious marriage between the calmness of the ocean and the infinity of the skies. The result is holistic with the interior and exterior complementing each other beautifully with a seemingly effortless fluidity.

Lusine exudes elegance through the intricacy of design and materials, such as precious fabrics, rare woods and exquisite leathers. There is also bespoke metals and glass, alongside custom-built furniture and lighting. Sinot Yacht Architecture and Design even placed the moon beneath your fingertips, there is a mesmerising piece of lunar meteorite showcased in a table.

Twelve guests are accommodated in six staterooms, with the owners’ apartment on the bridge deck aft. The full beam owner’s statesroom boasts 180-degree panoramic views and 50 sqm of luxury, complete with a private whirlpool. At the heart is a king-size bed which commands the room. The sleeping area is delineated by a bespoke silk carpet, while the rest of the room is finished beautifully in a Versailles parquet.

The owner’s explicit request for ultimate privacy was guaranteed by staircases that provide closing hatches. The touch-and-go heliport, for private use, allows for an Airbus H-135 to land and take off. It is serviced by an enclosed and air-conditioned reception area that guarantees discrete boarding. 

Arthur Brouwer, Heesen’s CEO said: “We are one of the few shipyards in the world with the in-house know-how and capacity to build yachts of this calibre. With a workforce of 1,000 people, our team comprises engineers, craftspeople, and experts in every sector of shipbuilding. We are a truly unique player in the yachting industry.” 

Lusine is the closest you can get to the moon on water. Lusine, to infinity and beyond.
