Keel Laying YN249 Zeus

Thursday, March 20, 2014


Last week the keel laying ceremony of project Zeus (yard number 249) took place at Scheepswerf Made. This 63.30 m motoryacht will be Hakvoort's largest superyacht to date.

Her unique contemporary profile is designed by René van der Velden to some very specific requirements from the owner. A fresh and bold approach to the modern classic look reflects a style called streamlining, which was very popular in the 1930s and 40s. 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.
