The new XV67 concept was launched during the Heesen press conference at the 2022 Monaco Yacht Show.
Four years ago, Winch Design and Heesen unveiled plans for Xventure, a 57-metre motor yacht with dramatic good looks and rugged capability.
Following the latest design and technology developments, they have now revisited the concept and refreshed it with new solutions, new layouts, and new appeal to create the XV67.
This concept design is a springboard for clients’ creativity to tailor the yacht to suit their needs, lifestyle, and the type of adventure they seek. The XV67 creates a new audience who are looking for experiential travel in a way that combines luxury lifestyle and a sense of adventure.
Engineered to travel off the beaten track in total safety and five-star comfort, the robust steel hull remains, but at 67 metres, she is 10 metres longer than her predecessor.
The clean-cut and avant-garde exterior lines make a bold statement: this is a yacht designed to roam the Galapagos islands or even the Arctic Ocean but still look elegant and utterly at home in St Tropez or Portofino – that’s why they call it a crossover vessel.
The new XV67 remains true to our original design intent: to create an exceptionally capable and beautiful bluewater voyager that will inspire owners to venture into new terrain. And turn heads wherever they go.
The tender has been moved to the open aft deck to free up the garage space for larger guest cabins.
Creating more interior volume for guest use meant designers could also introduce a three-storey master stateroom, including a private deck. It also means that bigger tenders or even a personal submarine can be stored on deck.
The option of hybrid propulsion is now available on all Heesen yachts, and the XV67 is no exception.
