Established in 2007, the Heysea Yachts Group records sales of over 100 yachts and ranking 25th in the world. Specialising in the construction of mid-to-large range luxury yachts, Heysea Yachts was the first to receive CCS certification and is respected for its solid R&D and customisation capabilities including an expert management team with over 20 years of industry experience, specialised yacht design and naval engineering teams, more than 350 experienced technicians and over 66,700sqm of build facility, with comprehensive modern workshops and launch slipway. It strives to offer clients European build quality with Chinese efficiency at an unbeatable price. The company features its model Heysea 152 now.
“I have been familiar with Heysea for some time,” explains YPI Group CEO and Head of YPI Asia Laurent Debart. “They build quality product with excellent attention to detail and finishing at a fraction of the cost a similar build would set an Owner back in Europe or the States. We are very proud to now present the yard, its Heysea, Zoom and Superyacht Series vessels including their stunning Heysea 152 to our clients.”
With an axe-bow design and fully customisable layout for up to six well-appointed cabins, the Heysea 152 offers a lot of volume and precision engineering (including electronics, equipment and engineering provided by recommended European or American suppliers) with a build time of under two years.
“Heysea not only understand build quality but it understands quality bespoke client service as a standard,” explains YPI Director of Sales Russell Crump. “With the Heysea 152, the yard has produced a simple example interior design and is more than ready to adapt or change that interior according to client’s wishes, and that includes paying for the services of a reputable interior designer or one of the client’s desicion.”
“China offers a new look and a new perspective on yachting,” says Debart. “They have the skills, the experiences, the resources and the know-how to build quality luxury yachts to a very high standard. And in much the same way as many of our clients are now looking to reputable commercial yards to construct their new superyacht projects, we are convinced Heysea offers the right mix for clients to build in China and then enjoy wherever they are in the world.”
