Heesen delivers brand new 55m charter yacht RELIANCE

By Anna Ingles   24 September 2023

The 55-metre Heesen motor yacht, previously known as Project Gemini and now named RELIANCE, has been successfully delivered, prior to joining the global charter fleet. 

Expressing delight over the completion, Heesen stated: "We are thrilled to announce that the 55m Steel YN 19755, motor yacht RELIANCE, has been handed over to a satisfied family. The entire team at Heesen is excited to see this new yacht sailing and extend their best wishes for smooth sailing to the owners and crew."

Available for Mediterranean yacht charters in summer 2024, RELIANCE was launched from the Heesen outfitting shed at the Oss shipyard in October 2022. The luxury charter yacht's dynamic exterior design is a creation of Omega Architects, while Luca Dini is responsible for the elegant interiors. Built with a steel hull and aluminium superstructure, RELIANCE is part of Heesen's popular 55 Steel series which includes five delivered yachts, among them being VIDA and LAURENTIA.

Initiating the construction of RELIANCE as a speculative venture, she was bought 15 months into its build by a client who admired the characteristic shark-grey exterior, robust lines, and predatory profile, which has been achieved via a "shark tooth" feature on the superstructure forward.

Although the yacht’s exterior design is the result of a well-established partnership, RELIANCE is the first Heesen crewed yacht charter to feature interiors designed by Luca Dini. The Italian designer and his team have created a sophisticated atmosphere using warm tones and a stylish theme. Boasting several custom features, including a unique layout in the owner's cabin en suite and windows in the transom door for natural light to flood the beach club, RELIANCE is already shaped up to make a splash on the charter market for both family vacations and corporate yacht charters.

Able to accommodate 12 guests in its six generously sized cabins, RELIANCE features an expansive 82-square-meter owner's cabin on the main deck forward and a VIP on the bridge deck. The remaining guest cabins, comprising two doubles and two twins, are situated on the lower deck.
