And while for ordinary people, owning a yacht may seem like a dream come true, it comes with its own special set of headaches...
XVenture - ultimative explorer's yacht
The renowned Dutch shipyard, Heesen Yachts, has recently partnered with British studio Winch Design to co-create XVenture, a spectacular concept that aims to become the ultimate exploration yacht…
The fifty-seven-foot-long boat you see in the gallery contains the Van Oossanen hull and comes with an operating range of 5,000 nautical miles, with the possibility of upgrading. The striking cruise range gives you the opportunity to reach the distant bays and coves with this yacht, with space and seven stars comfort. The yacht will be built to the highest Lloyds Classification and safety standards, and can also receive an optional hybrid propulsion system to reduce fuel consumption and incredibly low noise and vibration values.
XVenture will offer an incredible volume of interiors, with floor-to-ceiling windows that allow you to enjoy breathtaking views from the main deck, from guest and owner suites and from the lounge located on the upper deck. The yacht also features an observation deck that gives you amazing sea views from every angle, with a glass winter garden and a swimming pool in front.
Heesen Yacht and Winch Design have designed this amazing exploration number with a whole host of accompanying transports in mind, for all types of expeditions: helicopter, Jet Ski, submarine, large tender, diving and fishing equipment.
The helicopter is big enough for the Airbus H135, and can also play the role of a fixed Bimini that lifts the cockpit and pool. In addition, a double-height tender garage can accommodate the large Interpit 375 Nomad sport fishing boat, with an additional Pascoe Beachlander to take you to and from the coast with great comfort and style, in any weather.
Moreover, there is ample room for crew tender, personal boat and many other amenities.
