Heesen Yachts attends Palm Beach International Boat Show
Heesen is delighted to confirm its attendance at the Palm Beach International Boat Show from 24 to 27 March 2022.
Key people from the Oss shipyard and the US sales operation look forward to meeting new customers and seeing old friends. Heesen CCO Friso Visser, Mark Cavendish, Executive Commercial Officer, and Robert Drontmann, Sales Director, will all be there. So will Thom Conboy from the Fort Lauderdale office, who will support the sales team. The Heesen stand can be found on SYV2.
“We just returned from the Dubai show,” commented Friso Visser. “It was the first of the season, and we took away nothing but positives. Now, we look forward to walking the docks in Palm Beach, Florida, another market where we are traditionally strong, thanks to our presence in Fort Lauderdale with Thom Conboy”.
American clients particularly appreciate Heesen yachts for their unique combination of design and Dutch pedigree. “Take the Heesen 55-metre Steel FDHF,” says Thom Conboy. “Three of these yachts have been sold to American clients - Laurentia, Vida and Solemates. This design ticks all the boxes: you have the best possible internal volume at 760GT, a contemporary exterior, a practical layout with a generous beach club, toys and tenders conveniently stowed forward on the bridge deck, and incredible performance in terms of fuel efficiency, comfort and stability.
“The latest in the 55-metre series, YN 20555 Project Serena, is yet another fantastic addition to the fleet – her November 2024 delivery is highly appealing to those clients who want to enjoy a yacht of high quality and superb finish, but may not have time to invest in a custom project.”
Other yachts currently available for sale are Project Jade, a 50m semi-displacement design, and Project Akira, first in the new 57-metre all aluminium series, for delivery in April and June 2024 respectively.
Heesen’s ability to engage with speculative projects like these, alongside full-custom yacht builds, gives it unique advantages in the market. The shipyard caters both to clients who want to enjoy their new yacht as soon as possible, and to those who consider a yacht to be a personal expression of their personality, creativity and lifestyle.
