We are delighted to report that the construction of our largest steel motor yacht, the 67-metre Project Sparta, continues to proceed on schedule.
On April 29, the completed hull was turned right way up to allow engineering fit-out to begin.
Sparta’s hull was assembled at Talsma in Franeker, the Netherlands, a specialist yard, which has undertaken steel fabrication for Heesen since 2008 as the risk of chemical cross-contamination makes it technically inadvisable to weld both steel and aluminium on the same site. Like Heesen, Talsma operates at the highest levels of efficiency and professionalism, and as a loyal partner to the shipyard has been crucial to Heesen’s continuing success in long-range, steel-hulled yachts.
Project Sparta will be one of the superyacht stories of the year when she is delivered in 2023.
