Heesen megayacht Home won the Naval Architecture Displacement and Best Ecological Design & Operation Innovation Award at the Boat International Design & Innovation Awards 2018 in Kitzbühel.
Van Oossanen worked to optimize the vessel’s fast displacement hull for displacement speed economy with small engines and a hybrid propulsion package. In addition, the vertical stem with modest flare, fin stabilizers and interceptors at the transom showed the best results for reducing roll and pitch.
Ecological Design & Operation Innovation:
The yacht was awarded for its effective use of diesel-electric hybrid engines, which reduce fuel consumption and noise.
