SPARTA: Heesen's largest steel yacht prepares for sea trials ahead of delivery

By Anna Ingles   17 August 2023

SPARTA, the latest luxury yacht built by renowned Dutch shipyard Heesen, is making waves in the industry. At 67m (219ft) she is Heesen's largest steel motor yacht to date and a true testament to the shipyard's commitment to excellence and innovation.

The concept for SPARTA originated from Project Avanti, a collaboration between Heesen and Winch Design showcased at the Monaco Yacht Show in 2018. The yacht's athletic lines immediately caught the attention of potential buyers, and the design remained faithful to the original concept, with only minor adjustments made to the swimming pool. Winch Design expertly incorporated Heesen's DNA into the yacht, resulting in a unique, low-profile, sporty, and elegant vessel that is truly a sight to behold on the water.

Boasting a striking appearance, the superyacht is adorned in a classic Snow White livery with contemporary metallic Venetian red and metallic anthracite grey accents, giving her a dash of sophistication. Her profile features a reverse bow, creating an illusion of increased length and emphasizing her slender form. The bold sweep of thermobonded tinted glass from bow to stern further adds to her intoxicating allure.

Sparta has been designed to offer an exceptional onboard experience centered around family and togetherness. The main deck aft serves as the heart of social activities, seamlessly connecting the full-beam main salon with the open-air beach terrace.

This area provides the perfect space for enjoying life both on and next to the sea. With a transformer passerelle platform for easy access to the water and a breathtaking 6.5m infinity pool, SPARTA effortlessly bridges the gap between onboard luxury and the vastness of the ocean.

Inside, SPARTA boasts a generous 1,200 GT interior volume, expertly utilized by Winch Design. The general arrangement includes two separate owner's suites on a private deck, providing ultimate privacy and comfort. Additionally, there are four guest cabins on the main deck, each meticulously designed to offer a luxurious experience. A movable partition in the forward suites allows for a full-beam VIP suite or a large playroom for younger family members. With an elegant staircase and glass elevator serving all three decks, movement throughout the yacht is seamless.

The wellness area includes an elliptical whirlpool, steam room, sauna, gym, and beauty area, providing a sanctuary for guests to unwind and rejuvenate. The careful consideration given to the flow of movement throughout the accommodation areas ensures that the crew can work efficiently and discreetly, allowing guests to enjoy their time onboard undisturbed.
