Heesen Yachts is proud to announce that on May 22nd in London’s Guildhall their yachts Celestial Hope and the yacht Blind Date were each awarded with a Neptune trophy, the highest recognition a yacht builder could hope to receive.

The 47-metre Heesen, Celestial Hope Yacht wins the ‘Semi-displacement or Planing Motor Yacht of over 40-metre Length’ category.

In the words of the Jury, the overwhelming majority of whose members were superyacht owners,‘This category produced a very fine selection of finalists, most of whom were well established series-production designs, whose detailed design and construction quality had been refined over the course of previous builds. The judges rewarded the combination of extremely high quality of construction, an attractive interior design by Intarya and the interesting interior layout of the Heesen-built 47-metre.”

The 46,7-metre Heesen Blind Date Motor Yacht takes the prize for ‘Displacement Motor Yacht Below 500 Gross Tons’.

The Judges’ Report stated: ‘This class contained seven finalists, five aluminium-built yachts and two constructed from composite that were built by leading yards in three continents. The secret ballot revealed the judges’ preference for the Heesen-built Blind Date that blended high quality construction and excellent engineering with uncluttered deck spaces and an attractive, well laid out ‘modern deco’ interior offering a neutral pallet of colours by Keech Green, an interior design company new to the yachting industry. While the general arrangement of the vessel usually followed traditional lines, the division of space, the circulation plan and other practical features for both crew and guests was also considered to be extremely well thought out. The judges could also see from the very clear Owner’s Statement that his requirements and original design objectives had all been met.’
