When asked about its most unique build, Sara Gioanola of Heesen Yachts replied with a new project that is currently under construction. The 80m long superyacht will be 1,700GT and offer an astounding top speed of about 30 knots. Cosmos will be the world’s largest and fastest aluminum superyachts with a conventional propeller propulsion system!
Superyacht Cosmos: From Helipad to Outdoor Cinema Space
Project Cosmos will have a fully-rated helipad built for a Eurocopter EC135 that will be able to transform into an outdoor cinema space, and will also have a crystal elevator that runs through all deck for easy accessibility. Other astounding features will include a 7m pool with contra-jets for swimming, as well as a waterfall with a glass bottom. A large beach club will feature a sunken, walkaround bar and an oversized transom with side platforms.

Of Project Cosmos, Sara Gianola says, “Our most unique build is the mighty 80m full-aluminium FDHF Project Cosmos, with exterior lines by Winch Design and interior design by Sinot. She will be our largest yacht built to date and the fastest in her class, marking a succession of new technological firsts for Heesen – a thoroughbred racehorse and the next evolution of the Heesen breed.”
We also posed what made the requests so atypical, and to this, Sarah Gianola stated, “First of all, the size. 80m LOA is enormous for a full-aluminium yacht. Add to this the requested speed of nearly 30 knots, and you have something very special! The desire for speed, aluminium and length required Heesen to devise new methods of bringing longitudinal strength into the design without adding extra weight to the overall structure. We developed a brand new patent – ‘The Backbone’ – reminiscent of the I girder.”
The superyacht project build is going very well thus far! The Heesen superyacht Cosmos is currently under construction and will be delivered to her owners in Spring 2022.
