The joining of hull and superstructure of Project Neptune has recently taken place at Heesen Yachts’ shipyard facilities in Oss, the Netherlands.
The steel-hulled Project Neptune is the product of the well-known expertise of Heesen Yachts in building luxury crafts. British design firm H2 worked on Heesen pre-engineered FDHF platform to create an innovative, timeless and sleek profile, boasting a subtle paint scheme including metallic silver paint on the transom, wing station and mast. The design includes tenders conveniently stored on the forward deck, covered by hatches and invisible from the profile.
The owner appointed Reymond Langton to create a bright and elegant interior with a contemporary design interwoven with subtle design details and artworks to create a rich but refined atmosphere.
The interior layout makes the most of the 770GT by offering an impressive 85-square metres owner’s apartment set forward on the main deck comprising a private gym with steam room, office, full-beam bedroom and bathroom with central bathtub and shower stall accessible through His and Hers walk-in wardrobes.
There will be comfortable accommodation for eight guests in four suites on the lower deck, all with king-size beds and large ensuite bathrooms. A fifth double cabin is located on the bridge deck. Both owners and guests will be efficiently and discreetly serviced by the 13 crew thanks to separate crew corridors and stairs.
The interior styling throughout the main and upper deck living spaces is in light fiddle back sycamore combined with pale taupe leathers, bronze inlays and white onyx, with clean, simple lines combined with understated geometric motifs. The fabrics and soft furnishings add hints of colour and pattern that draw in the eye and define the individual character of staterooms and saloons.
A further layer of interest is created by the inclusion of custom artworks in glass, gypsum, resin and bronze that echo and emphasize and add a glamorous sparkle to the understated foundation.
With tenders conveniently stored under hatches on the foredeck, the lower deck beach club is designed to accommodate the various water toys to entertain the guests and is accessible from the main deck aft terrace via an internal staircase.
A 3.5-metres long fixed swim platform provides easy and comfortable access to the water. This space offers a relaxed variation on the themes of the other guest areas with warm teak, blue backlit panels and bamboo detailing that blend seamlessly with the ocean beyond.
Powered by twin MTU 8V 4000 M63 engines, Project Neptune will reach a maximum speed of 15.5 knots with a cruising range at 13 knots of 4,300 nautical miles.
