In this first episode of the new season of YachtTalk Specials, we are at the Heesen shipyard in Oss, where they’ve just commenced the build of Project Jade. Following Aquamarine and Sapphire, Jade is the third vessel in the 50m aluminium series. Superyacht designer Frank Laupman shows off the highlights of her exterior design, and you might also learn a thing or two about aluminium welding. Since the shipyard was founded more than 40 years ago, Heesen has used aluminium to build its ultra-fast and efficient yachts. To let you in on a few of the secrets of lightweight yacht building, naval architect Sjoerd van Herk takes us behind the scenes in Shed 6.
