Heesen 180 foot Moskito was delivered to its owner for a shakedown cruise to Malta

Heesen ’s muscular, new 180-footer, formerly known as Project Pollux, has been delivered to its owner as Moskito . The latest Heesen has what designer Omega Architects calls a “shark-tooth” superstructure with vertical windows and a dramatic overhang above the second deck. After delivery, Moskito will make its first cruise to Malta, a 2,800-nautical mile journey that will pass 81 waypoints.

The shakedown cruise will also prove the efficiency of its fast displacement hull form which, paired with twin MTU 8V 4000 M63 engines, sips only 40 gallons of diesel per hour at 11 knots. That’s exceptional fuel economy for a yacht this size. Top speed is 15.5 knots. At 13 knots, the boat has a range of 4,500 nautical miles.

Moskito has a large foredeck for the tender and crane, along with a lounge, while the main socializing happens on the flybridge, with its hardtop and Jacuzzi. The rear decks below allow for alfresco dining and access to the water.

Bannenberg & Rowell created the interior, a design that managing director Dickie Bannenberg says “works equally well whether you’re in shorts and a T-shirt or dressed for dinner.” The studio used contrasts to enhance the look, combining dark eucalyptus and pale sycamore joinery, with chevron parquet flooring. Floor-to-ceiling windows and open bulwarks give Moskito main salon and staterooms.

The owner also wanted the London studio to drill deep into the details by having them select the artwork—and even the books—so the yacht was delivered as a complete package. “We don’t always get to remain design control freaks like this,” quipped Bannenberg.

Moskito has a six-stateroom layout, including a master suite for the owner, and five staterooms for 10 guests. The 13 crew are housed in seven cabins.

Heesen’s On Spec ‘Moskito’

  • By Diane M. Byrne
  • March 8, 2022

When you’re buying a yacht, and if you’re considering a spec project, a number of factors work in your favor. You get a proven engineering package, where sisterships back up claims of cruising speeds that make quick work of island-hopping, or economical speeds that make transatlantic crossings possible. You get a shorter delivery time than with a custom build. And you have the opportunity to put your own stamp on the interior design, even when the yacht is already many months into the construction process.

Every spec yacht on the water today bears all of these advantages. Each also bears some changes made between the time the owners bought the yachts and the time they took deliveries.

Except for the 180-foot Heesen Moskito .

Yes, the owner relied on performance data verified by similar deliveries. Heesen Yachts had already handed over four previous projects in its 55-meter Steel series. The yacht’s fast-displacement hull form from Van Oossanen Naval Architects and twin MTU engines promised a 15.5-knot maximum speed and a range of 4,500 nautical miles at 13 knots. The owner also enjoyed a shorter delivery time. He acquired the yacht in late 2020 and took delivery in April 2021.

What makes Moskito an exception is that the owner didn’t change a thing about the superyacht. Not any of the systems, not any of the wall paneling, other materials, or even furnishings that Bannenberg & Rowell Design chose to give the yacht a distinctive touch—nothing.

“We wanted to take the breath away, without being aesthetically intimidating,” says Dickie Bannenberg, who runs the design studio with Simon Rowell. The interplay of design elements not commonly found on spec builds “instantly differentiates and enhances the feeling that, for a spec boat, this is really something with a lot of detail and quality and thought and expense.”

Treating a spec project this way can be risky, of course, but Heesen and the design firm had already created nearly a dozen spec yachts together.

“They do give us very free rein,” Bannenberg says. “They’ve never said, ‘We want you to do something based around X, Y or Z.’ We call the shots creatively. … We are trying to be progressive and interesting and original but, at the same time, target audiences as wide as possible.”

The shipyard strives for its spec yachts to be progressive in configuration too. After every two yachts in a series, Heesen incorporates changes based on the feedback of owners, captains and charter guests. So, even though Moskito is the fifth launch in the 55-meter Steel series, only its immediate predecessor, Solemates—whose owner changed the Bannenberg & Rowell interior—has staterooms spread across three decks. The VIP stateroom is on the wheelhouse deck instead of belowdecks and is enlarged to span the yacht’s full beam. Four guest staterooms remain belowdecks, and the master stateroom—926 square feet—occupies the main deck forward.

Additionally, Moskito is the second in the series to have a volume of 760 gross tons, an increase of 20 gross tons.

“In terms of creating an identity, each one is completely a one-off,” Bannenberg says of the studio’s approach to spec yachts. Aboard Moskito , there are contrasting rich eucalyptus and pale sycamore wood, for instance, with smoked-oak parquet soles in a chevron pattern.

“It really does hit that sweet spot of people looking for something fairly easygoing, by which I mean you can sit there not perched on the front of the sofa,” Bannenberg says. “You’re pretty happy kicking back with polo shirts and shorts, but at the same time, if you want to live a smarter or more dressy life, it’s good for that too.”

Moskito also has more than a few gentle curves amid its walls. Take the master stateroom, for instance. Though guests pass through a foyer to get to the sleeping area, it’s not until they really look at the wall behind the bed and then at the wall in the foyer that they realize they’re arcs. For shipyards building on spec, it’s much easier and less expensive to manufacture straight lines. Heesen has its own interiors department, allowing for this kind of design element.

Not only did the owner buy Moskito without changing a thing, but he also bought the superyacht sight unseen. He saw the yacht for the first time when boarding it in Malta upon delivery, having signed off on everything remotely. This included giving Bannenberg & Rowell carte blanche to select books and a few accessories to round out the overall design.

“We’ve had projects where people have said, ‘Select some art,’ or ‘Make some proposals,’ and we’ve put things together, and it doesn’t hit the spot,” Bannenberg says. “So it can cut both ways. In this particular case, I think we really did choose things to complement the overall vibe on board.”

It’s good to see that an exception can be exceptional.

Heesen’s Home

While several superyacht shipyards are in the Netherlands, Heesen’s home city of Oss sits 93 miles inland, closer to the land border with Germany than to the North Sea. A series of canals and rivers connects it to the sea.

Fantasy vs. Friendly

With spec projects, Bannenberg & Rowell Design envisions real-world scenarios. “We do like to think of the lifestyle—the family with two or three kids, or charters—and have things made practical,” Dickie Bannenberg says. “It’s not just a sort of homage to sharp design; it’s something very livable and comfortable.”

Here Comes the Sun

Alfresco areas are among the most popular places to be on board a yacht. Moskito’s outdoor spaces add up to nearly 2,700 square feet. Much of this is on the sun deck, which has a pool, a bar, and seating and sunbathing areas that are usable underway or at anchor.

The Hull Story

According to Van Oossanen, its fast-displacement hull form “reduces resistance values by 20 percent” when compared to “hard-chine hulls at semidisplacement speeds.”

55m Heesen yacht 'Project Pollux' named MOSKITO

By Katia Damborsky   7 December 2020

On track for delivery in the first quarter of 2021, Heesen's 55m (180.5ft) Project Pollux is now named luxury yacht MOSKITO .

Sold under construction in October 2020, Project Pollux (formerly known as YN 19255) is now named MOSKITO according to her AIS data. 

The motor yacht was launched in September at the yard's Oss facilities and is currently undergoing intensive sea trials in the North Sea. 

She is part of the Dutch yard's successful, newly restyled 55m Steel range. The models in this range are exceptionally fuel-efficient thanks to a Van Oossanen-designed Fast Displacement Hull Form.

Banneberg & Rowell was given free reign over the interior styling of the superyacht, and the result is a calming, soothing and sophisticated ambience.

As well as increased full-efficiency, MOSKITO also has a unique interior design from the drawing boards of the esteemd Bannenberg & Rowell. This yacht marks the tenth collaboration between the British design studio and the Dutch yard, and Banneberg & Rowell was given free reign over the interior styling of the superyacht.

The result is a calming ambience throughout, which is achieved thanks to eucalyptus wood, Thassos marble and an abundance of natural light. Accommodation is provided for 12 guests in six cabins, which includes an Owner's suite which encompasses 86 square metres.

The models in this range are exceptionally fuel-efficient thanks to a Van Oossanen-designed Fast Displacement Hull Form.

Other on-board highlights include a large skylounge, chic main salon and a sundeck with a jacuzzi, sleek bar and casual dining area.

The yacht's exteriors have been penned by Frank Laupman of Omega Architects, and the finish is signature sporty Heesen style with a masculine touch. At a cruising speed of 13 knots, the luxury yacht will have a transatlantic range of 4,500 nautical miles.

HEESEN MOSKITO: CREATING A BUZZ

yacht moskito owner

Heesen’s 55-metre Moskito made her debut at this year’s Monaco Yacht Show, topping an excellent year for the Dutch shipyard.

yacht moskito owner

In the last 18 months, Heesen has sold nine yachts (Amare II, Arkadia, Aquamarine, Oslo24, Sapphire, Gemini, Aura, ELA and Moskito) and delivered six (Amare II, Solemates, 2021 ELA, Aquamarine, Arkadia and Moskito). All were delivered on time (an obsession of the shipyard) and this very obsession has led the Dutch shipyard to come out of the pandemic stronger than ever.

MONACO DEBUT

September saw the crème de la crème of the superyacht world head to the Cote de Azure for the much anticipated Monaco Yacht Show. Moskito, Heesen’s latest delivery represented the shipyard, creating a stir with her exterior courtesy of Omega Architects and an interior designed by renowned British studio Bannenberg & Rowell.

Frank Laupman of Omega Architects has contributed to many of Heesen’s projects over the years creating vastly different designs from the elegant (MySky) to the aggressive (Amore Mio). Moskito falls somewhere in between the two, with powerful exteriors lines lending an air of calm authority, characterised by striking ‘shark-tooth’ superstructure overhangs and vertical windows.

yacht moskito owner

Heesen is one of the few shipyards that can build on spec – offering clients the opportunity to acquire yachts that are already under construction.

Moskito’s hull isn’t just sublime, it’s also hugely efficient thanks to the latest iteration of Van Oossanen’s ultra-efficient Fast Displacement Hull Form. This low resistance, hydrodynamic efficient design allows Moskito to traverse 4,500 Nautical miles while cruising at 13 knots and with a pair of IMO III-compliant MTU 8V 4000 M63s powering her, she sips approximately 150 litres of diesel per hour at 11 knots.

INTERIOR SPACE

The abundance of tinted glazing is one of Moskito’s most eye catching design traits and it’s this extensive use of glass throughout that provides an abundance of natural light in the superyacht’s interior. Floor-to-ceiling windows and open bulwarks illuminate Moskito’s decks highlighting the bold, sophisticated look created by British design duo Bannenberg & Rowell. “We wanted to take the breath away, without being aesthetically intimidating,” said Bannenberg. “That fine line between approachability and comfort. Something cool and interesting, but subtle.”

Cool, interesting and subtle it is, with a blend of natural, noble tones and a tailored spatial arrangement creating warm and inviting living areas. Traditionally crafted smoked Oak chevron parquet flooring, white Thassos, grey St. Laurent and ivory Travertine marble are used throughout, with warm bronze accent that underwrite fine workmanship and furnishings.

OWNER’S SUITE

Spanning more than eighty-two square metres, Moskito’s main deck Owner’s apartment is warm and airy, featuring a light and dark colourway dominated by oak parquet and eucalyptus veneers. A desk commissioned from GMS joinery in London (they have managed projects for the Houses of Parliament and Harrods) is just one of the bespoke items of furniture to be found on board, but there’s not one bit of ostentation – a typical trait of Heesen, as they have the confidence and ability to build yachts on speculation. Moskito’s Artworks have been sourced from British talents – from flowing porcelain forms by Fenella Elms, to Rose Vickers’ marquetry mosaics, and intricate paper collages by Hormazd Narielwalla.

OUTDOOR SPACES

Dining, entertaining and simply lazing around in the sun is all part of Moskito’s DNA. In fact, there are over two hundred and fifty square metres of outdoor entertaining spaces on board, including a sizeable sundeck complete with a pool, bar, seating and sunbathing areas. Linked to the deck saloon by simple sliding doors, Moskito’s aft terrace provides forty-four square metres of alfresco comfort.

High up on the bridge deck, the secluded skylounge is ideal for periods of calm and relaxation. “Our guiding philosophy was that the owner should be as happy hosting a black-tie dinner as lounging in their shorts,” says Bannenberg.

Moskito’s advanced naval architecture from Van Oossanen utilises the FDHF hull form to ensure performance and power.

yacht moskito owner

Of course, there’s no better place to lounge in shorts than in Moskito’s extensive beach club. This area is dedicated to wellness and features a sauna, plenty of seating, a shower and ample privacy for that early morning swim.

Arthur Brouwer, CEO of Heesen summed up Moskito’s popularity at the Monaco Yacht Show: “The 55m is a very popular class and we are the only Northern European shipyard to offer such a yacht on spec. We are proud to be presenting such a fine example of Heesen’s DNA. Moskito is sporty, sleek, and timelessly elegant in design, while offering the best in performance and efficiency. She has the right balance of indoor and outdoor space – meaning ultimate interior comfort and luxury, with spacious alfresco spaces to enjoy the best of yachting lifestyle.”

Moskito will be available for charter by selected guests via International Yacht Collection, in the Mediterranean in summer and in the Caribbean in winter.

She is the second yacht from the shipyard to be delivered in 2021 and has a modern, muscular appearance created by Omega Architects . The ‘shark tooth’ design of the superstructure overhangs produces a signature appearance, and dark vertical windows contrast against the while hull and superstructure to dramatic effect.

Bannenberg & Rowell had ample interior volume to work with, coming in at 760 GT, and the understated elegance is ideal for celebrating in style or relaxing together with family and friends: The main salon has a contrast of dark eucalyptus and pale sycamore joinery and chevron parquet flooring that makes the bar even more eye-catching. Floor-to-ceiling windows and open bulwarks grant guests magnificent views of the environment whilst relaxing within the climate-controlled interior.

The accommodation, meanwhile, provides up to 12 guests with six en-suite cabins to act as a private retreat: 1 Master suite, 2 VIP staterooms, 1 double cabin and 2 twin cabins that can convert to doubles.

Outside, there is a sundeck Jacuzzi and plenty of sunbathing options, while guests who want to chat and admire the view can do so in complete comfort while the Captain and crew of 12 see to every detail. A beach club in the lower deck stern is a wonderful place to greet visitors and welcome them on board or watch the rest of the group playing on the water toys from this Approved RYA Water Sports Centre.

The MTU 8V 4000 M63 engines are IMO Tier III-compliant, and in conjunction with the Fast Displacement Hull Form from Van Oossanen allow for economical cruising with a rate of only 150 litres of fuel consumed per hour at 11 knots.

Following her delivery, M/Y MOSKITO will make her maiden voyage to Malta, visiting 81 waypoints and cruising non-stop over 2,800 nautical miles to truly give her abilities a test run.

Insiders still have no idea what's going to happen to Russian oligarchs' seized superyachts

  • It's been two years since Russia invaded Ukraine, leading to sanctions against Russian oligarchs.
  • Many of their superyachts were seized or frozen , leading industry insiders to question their fate.
  • The yachts, some of which are worth hundreds of millions of dollars, remain in a state of limbo.

Insider Today

More than two years after Russia invaded Ukraine, the boating world still doesn't have many answers about what's going on with the very large, expensive elephants in the sea: oligarchs' superyachts .

The war prompted many governments to enact sanctions against Russia's richest , including seizing their superyachts worth hundreds of millions of dollars. But it's unclear whether they can be sold or who'd buy them, leaving ports peppered with massive boats stuck in a floating limbo.

"The Russian problem, it's becoming a bigger and bigger and bigger problem," one luxury yacht broker told Business Insider at the Palm Beach International Boat Show last week. Like many others, he requested not to be named, given the sensitive nature of the matter at hand and the generally discreet nature of the industry.

Russia has been a massive player in the massive boat market for a long time. In August 2021 — about six months before Russia's Ukraine invasion — Russians owned the second-largest share of yachts over 40 meters in length, according to a report from the industry publication SuperYacht Times.

They were responsible for 16% of new build superyacht purchases in the decade preceding the report and are known for splashing out on extravagant interiors and unique features. (One builder BI spoke to recalled a mandate from an oligarch for a large safe in the owner's cabin in which he could keep his rifles. The builder later learned he'd use them to skeet shoot on deck.)

But those sales have now screeched to a halt as oligarchs get hit by international sanctions. At least a dozen superyachts — worth well over $1 billion combined — have been affected.

And no one is quite sure what will happen to them.

Russia's sanctioned superyachts are hard to buy and sell

The first problem is that many of the yachts are "frozen" — not seized. That means that although the Russian owners can't operate or collect them, they don't technically belong to an overseas government, so they can't be sold without special permission.

Earlier this month, federal prosecutors petitioned a judge asking for consent to sell the Amadea, the 106-meter superyacht that has been docked in San Diego and costs the US as much as $922,000 a month to maintain.

"I've had some inquiries, but all you can tell them is we don't know the outcome yet" of the case, another superyacht broker told BI at the yacht show.

And despite the broker's claim of interest in yachts like Amadea , most ultrarich — or at least their brokers — don't want to go near the vessels with a ten-foot pole, even if the government does get legal permission to sell them.

"How does it look if you bought a Russian boat?" Julia Simpson, a broker at Thompson of Monaco, said. "Even if it's completely legal and normal, there are too many things on the line," she said, like how the original owner got their money and whether that could make the new buyer look bad.

There are also possible legal implications, as it's hard for the government to prove who actually owns the yachts.

"Oligarchs typically structure their ownership of these high-value assets through a web of offshore shell companies and trusts that is designed to conceal the true owner," Joshua Naftalis, a former federal prosecutor who now works for Pallas Partners, told BI.

And if the government does assume ownership, it's highly dependent on court orders. For example, a Russian whose yacht had been seized by the French government regained access to his boat after winning a legal battle in 2022.

"It's a very difficult process to buy them," Ralph Dazert, the head of intelligence at SuperYacht Times, told BI. "There is a high risk of the former (Russian) owner suing you to get the boat back."

He pointed to the Alfa Nero, the 82-meter yacht that Eric Schmidt planned to purchase for $67 million last year in an auction put on by Antigua and Barbuda. He backed out after various parties tried to block the sale, likely deeming it not worth the legal headache.

"When the reason for sanctioning goes away, which it may do," the Russian owners will try to get their boats back , Simpson said. After all, "the government's not going to pay them."'

That said, if sanctions are dropped, the yachts will be worth much less than when they were seized, as a boat not in use deteriorates much faster than one sailing the seas.

"Those yachts need to be used to be kept in shape, kept in condition," the second broker said. "​​Just having them sit at the dock with a temporary crew on board is not good for the boats."

And the sanctioned Russians who have managed to maintain control of their superyachts won't have an easy time offloading them in the future.

Americans who try to do business with sanctioned oligarchs would have a number of hoops to jump through — like finding a bank to process the purchase, which would be next to impossible. If somehow they did and the government caught wind, they'd face hefty penalties and the transaction would be void.

So Russia's richest have found themselves "stuck" sailing in a select few countries that will let them, like the Maldives, Montenegro, and Dubai.

The new Four Seasons yacht will set sail in 2026.

Four Seasons has long set the gold standard for luxury accommodations on land and is renowned for its exquisite hotels that offer unparalleled comfort and service. Now, this legacy of luxury is extending its reach to the seas. In a groundbreaking move, Four Seasons Yachts , in collaboration with Marc-Henry Cruise Holdings Ltd and the esteemed Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri, is introducing an ambitious venture into luxury sea travel. Scheduled to set sail in 2026, this initiative promises an experience that transcends traditional cruising, offering voyages across the mesmerizing waters of the Caribbean and the historic coasts of the Mediterranean.

Alejandro Reynal, President and CEO of Four Seasons, expressed enthusiasm about bringing the brand's hallmark of guest-centered luxury to the high seas. According to Reynal, this expansion into yachting is a natural extension of Four Seasons' commitment to providing personalized, elegant, and comfortable experiences. The aim is clear: to redefine luxury hospitality, but this time, against the backdrop of the world's most stunning seascapes.

The suites are breathtaking.

The inaugural season of Four Seasons Yachts is poised to offer something truly special. With ten unique voyages planned, travelers will have the opportunity to explore over 130 distinct destinations across more than 30 countries and territories. Each itinerary has been meticulously crafted, allowing guests the flexibility to design their own sea adventure.

The spacious cabins have incredible views.

Accommodations aboard the yacht are set to be a marvel in themselves. Ninety-five suites, conceived by the creative minds of Fredrik Johannson at Tillberg Design of Sweden and Creative Director Prosper Assouline, are designed to be sanctuaries of tranquility at sea. Each suite, envisioned with elegant interiors, expansive views, and a residential feel, aims to provide guests with a sense of being at home away from home. Among these, the Funnel and Loft Suites stand out for their sheer luxury and space. They offer unique features such as splash pools, outdoor showers, and breathtaking panoramic views, setting a new benchmark for luxury accommodations on water.

The pool deck features a bar and lounge chairs.

Beyond the exquisite suites, the yacht will feature various amenities designed to cater to every guest's needs. With eleven dining options, a comprehensive spa and wellness center, a state-of-the-art marina, and an innovative pool area capable of hosting events, the yacht ensures a variety of experiences that enrich the journey.

“We’re building a stunning seafaring venture that will be enjoyed as a yacht experience rather than a cruise experience," says Thatcher Brown, chief commercial officer and head of joint operations at luxury shipping specialist Marc-Henry Cruise Holdings, the joint owner/operator of the Four Seasons Yachts brand. "The intrinsic value of Four Seasons brand leadership in luxury hospitality combined with the passionate pioneering spirit and expertise of the project team is manifested in the creation of truly special Four Seasons Yachts experiences."
