Representing the newest addition to the prestigious Heesen fleet, the 60m (196ft) superyacht ULTRA G, previously known as Project Skyfall, hit the water during a ceremony which took place on January 27 from their Oss facilities in the Netherland's, marking the yard's first superyacht launch for 2023.
Described by Heesen as the “ultimate expression of the knowledge and experience gained in over forty years of shipbuilding to the finest Dutch quality standards”, the all-aluminum yacht marks a long-standing collaboration between designers, with Omega Architects providing her unique exterior lines, while her engineering and Fast Displacement Hull Form comes courtesy of Van Oossanen Naval Architects. Meanwhile, London-based studio Harrison Eidsgaard is responsible for her chic interior styling.

The superyacht has been custom-built and designed for a fishing enthusiast. Described by the yard as a “sport fisherman in yacht disguise”, yacht ULTRA G features a fully operable fish cockpit complete with a fighting chair and storage for 40 rods.
When not reeling in big fishing game, the yacht has been primed for entertainment and relaxation, and bestowed with a wealth of amenities, including a media room featuring a vast 146-inch media wall, games area and custom wine fridge in her main salon, as well as an infinity pool on her sundeck.
She even flaunts her status as a dog-friendly yacht, equipped with a dedicated self-flushing “relief area” with synthetic grass, sensors, cameras and sprinklers.
Motor yacht ULTRA G also boasts exceptional power under the bonnet, with her 22,000 horsepower being generated by quad MTU 20V 4000 engines and four Kongsberg S90 waterjets, which help lower the yacht's draft to less than three meters and reduce vibration by 40 per cent compared with traditional shafts and propellers, for a smoother onboard experience. Under light load conditions, she is capable of delivering an impressive top speed of 37 knots.
She will be accompanied by a 24-meter custom built Vanquish tender, which has been designed in the mirror image of its mothership.
She will provide accommodation for 10 guests across five suites, including a master apartment positioned to offer complete privacy on her bridge deck, featuring a walk-in closet, large en suite with central oval tub and an intimate terrace with a Jacuzzi and inviting lounge area. Her remaining four cabins are found on her lower deck.
She is now ready for commissioning and will undergo rigorous testing in the North Sea, with delivery expected in the coming months following the successful completion of sea trials. It is not expected that superyacht ULTRA G will be available for charter once she’s delivered to her owner.
