Heesen Yachts in The Netherlands has revealed more details about Project Cosmos, currently in build with exterior styling by London-based Winch Design and interiors by Sinot Exclusive Yacht Design.
This yacht is not only the biggest to date for the yard, but it will be also the biggest and fastest yacht (29 knots) built in full-aluminum – powered by four MTU engines with a total power of 19,000 hp. Four MTU 20V 2000 engines, two driving each prop shaft, will deliver a total of 3500 kW each to the twin controllable pitch propellers. At top speed all four engines are engaged, but at moderate cruising speeds the yacht can drop to a more fuel-efficient two-engine mode. It is based on Van Oossanen‘s patented and tested Fast Displacement Hull Form (FDHF).
Features are expected to include a 2,900-square-foot sundeck, a foredeck that doubles as a helipad or outdoor cinema, a 23-foot-long pool with a glass bottom and a waterfal. Project COSMOS will accommodate twelve guests in four suites on the lower deck and in one VIP suite with a private studio on the bridge deck. Furthermore, a master suite is placed on the main deck. The crew of nineteen can be onboard.
Inside the yacht, featured materials, such as backlit onyx, straw marquetry and crystal glass panels are framed within the architectural lines to emphasise the beauty of these materials. A spiral staircase will wrap around a glass elevator.
