The Heesen Xventure explorer yacht, three times the length of a double-decker bus, can travel up to 5,000 miles


A super yacht designed to sail in the most isolated seas hundreds of miles off shore and offer total privacy for the rich and famous has been unveiled. 

The Heesen Xventure explorer yacht, three times the length of a double-decker bus, can travel up to 5,000 miles for extended off-shore trips, with even longer range as an optional extra.

Featuring space to store your helicopter, submarine and jet skis the vessel offers a range of options for those wishing to nip in and out while enjoying all the spoils of a long yachting break.

It also boasts floor to ceiling glass walls and an infinity pool situated at the front of the boat for world class views.

Designed by British studio Winch Design and Dutch shipyard Heesen Yachts the 190ft yacht is not yet in production.

While no price has been estimated the luxury super yacht is to be sold along with the helicopter, jet skis and submarine – meaning it will likely be at the top end of the scale. 

Designers of the boat said they hoped to ‘create the ultimate explorer yacht, conceived to take adventurous owners off the beaten path in seven-star comfort.’

Winch Design said: ‘One of Xventure’s key design features is the access that she provides to various transport modes, whether it be a helicopter, large tender, jet skis or submarine.

‘A double-height tender garage accommodates an 11.4m Intrepid 375 Sports fishing boat port-side, with a second 8.6m Beachlander in a side garage.

‘These are unusually large tenders designed to allow guests to move to and from shore in great comfort and variable weather conditions.’ 

A cruising range of 5,000 miles (with even longer range as an optional extra) enables it to reach remote bays and creeks, and to remain on station longer than other yachts

Space for ‘personal watercraft’ and scuba diving equipment for local expeditions is also provided – as well as a large garage for a Airbus H135 helicopter, which could be used to visit remote areas for heli-skiing or heli-fishing. 

Heesen explain: ‘Not just designed to accommodate rough waters, however, Xventure pays respect to the oceans and the environment.

‘The optional hybrid propulsion system delivers reduced fuel consumption and exceptionally low noise and vibration levels. She also conforms to the latest Tier III exhaust and pollution emission regulations to reduce her footprint, while her FDHF hull makes her highly efficient.’

 Last year Heesen created a superyacht with a silent mode in a bid to offer guests the ultimate luxury – peace and quiet.

The 164ft-long aluminium-constructed ‘Home’ was decked out with a hybrid diesel electric propulsion system, which minimizes noise pollution and fuel consumption without sacrificing speed.

London-based professor Barry Smith, who founded the Centre for the Study of the Senses, helped guide the boat’s development and he said that Home runs at ‘a sound of around 46 decibels – the level of softly falling rain’.

Professor Smith says this unique feature helps high-flying passengers get greater enjoyment from the yacht’s on-board amenities – especially when it comes to food.

He explains: ‘Our research has shown that the brain’s processing of taste is affected by noise, which reduces the tongue’s ability to detect salt, sweet and sour.

‘The beauty of Home is that it enables those on board to enjoy food and drink to the full with no diminution of taste.’

Heesen designers said they found many of the activities at sea involve enjoying good food and wine, so they wanted to cut out any distractions. 

The latest design will also feature the low noise engines.
