Heesen Yachts recently launched their latest all-aluminium, semi-displacement motor yacht at their facility in Oss at a private ceremony, where she was christened Crazy Me. A party, arranged by her owner, followed to celebrate her fine craftsmanship and the hard work by the Heesen team.

Heesen Launch Superyacht Crazy Me 2

Crazy Me is a very special yacht. Credit for her conception must go to her visionary owner who pushed the boundaries of creativity and design for this vessel. Designer Gary Grant was appointed to create the radical exterior lines. His eye for detail when collaborating with the exterior designer was instrumental in achieving her clean, pure lines and forming her unique and distinctive “swoosh” line from bow to stern making this vessel highly recognizable at sea. She certainly does stand out from the crowd.

One of this vessel's most striking design elements is the use of formed glass, another of Grant Design's signatures. Besides looking extremely elegant, she is also incredibly strong. She is effectively sound insulated and her low-reflective surface provides great visibility. Renowned Italian designer Cristiano Gatto was chosen to assist the owner in creating a stunning interior where clean, linear and contemporary design emphasizes the incredible internal volume.

On behalf of the owner, Alex Banning of Super Yachts Monaco said: "The owner respects and is highly appreciative of the general excellence Heesen have accomplished in executing Crazy Me's highly complex technical aspects, which have been extremely demanding and challenging. One of the most distinctive yachts ever delivered in Northern Europe, she is a true testament to the owner’s inspiration and Heesen’s quality and skills as a superyacht builder of true pedigree."

Besides the striking lines and very futuristic profile of this beautiful superyacht, very little has been released so far concerning her internal layout and her technical specifications.
