Hakvoort is Building 207′ Superyacht Zeus

The Netherlands shipyard, Hakvoort is building the 63.3 meter (207′) Superyacht Zeus. The Zeusproject is currently under construction at one of the yard’s subcontractors and is for sale. It will be the largest superyacht built to date by Hakvoort with an expected delivery in the spring of 2017.

Zeus is designed by René van der Velden to some very specific requirements from the owner. Diana Yacht Design is responsible for the naval architecture and the interior will come from the boards of Sinot Yacht Design.

The owner of Zeus has a longstanding relationship with René van der Velden and asked him to draw a modern classic with a difference.

“He was very keen that the yacht should not be a repeat of anything else that is currently afloat but something genuinely fresh and bold,” explains Van der Velden. “The owner admires a type of styling called streamlining, which was especially popular in the 1930’s and 40’s. A streamliner is a vehicle or vessel given a specific shape that reduces air resistance: Examples include the famous ferry Kalakala and the record-breaking car Bluebird. This is the first time streamlining has been so clearly integrated into the design of a superyacht.”

A crucial part of the layout brief was the location of the tenders.

“The owner has a lot of experience and knows how difficult large tenders can be to launch,” Van der Velden continues. “Seeking a very practical solution we chose to place two nine-metre tenders on the main deck. As this eats into a lot of prime real estate, we have skipped the traditional saloon, dedicating the main deck to the owner’s quarters, galley and captain’s cabin. This has freed space on the deck above for pure socialising.”

Twin Caterpillar 3512Cs will give her a top speed of 15 knots and a cruising speed of 12.5 knots.
