The Heesen 5000 Aluminium class has proven to be a revolutionary offering. Hinging on a semi-custom platform, the pioneering concept enables clients to have a yacht they can customise that relies on proven design and technology, reducing both client costs and construction times.

Arne Ploch at Camper & Nicholsons, who represented the client’s commercial interests during the construction, comments: “It was a real pleasure to work with Heesen throughout this new build for the past two years. It’s been a smooth relationship based on mutual trust and respect, the way it should be when building a new yacht. It has been a great experience for the owner and his team.”

VanTom exceeded the contractual speed by 0.3 knots, reaching a top speed of 23.3 knots, while at 11 knots she has a transatlantic range of 3,100 nautical miles. With a Gross Tonnage of below the 500GT threshold, VanTom sports a highly efficient hard-chine hull and propulsion system that is both quiet and vibration-free, even at higher speeds.

Captain David Burge comments: “During sea trials, the yacht handled extremely well and gave a very smooth ride, even whilst proceeding at a speed of over 20 knots with a sea running. I am most excited about our maiden voyage down to the Mediterranean Sea and very much look forward to the 2018 summer cruising season.”
