Hakvoort Shipyard launches 63m flagship superyacht SCOUTDutch shipbuilder Hakvoort Shipyard successfully launched the yard’s largest project to date
Measuring 63.72-metres with a beam of 11.6 metres and a draft of 3.25 metres, SCOUT emerged from the Hakvoort shed in Monnickendam in North Holland on 1st December before being towed to Amsterdam for final completion. Amongst the works that will be completed in the Dutch capital is the installation of her mast, crow’s nest, radars, stabilizers and propellers.
Though construction of YN249 originally started under a different name, a change of ownership early on in the build process saw a complete change in direction for the steel and aluminum explorer yacht. Hakvoort can now reveal that SCOUT features both interior and exterior design by Jonny Horsfield and his talented team at H2 Yacht Design, who worked closely with the owner to ensure the realization of a Dutch-quality new-build project that perfectly fits her owner’s taste and requirements. Diana Yacht Design is responsible for her naval architecture.
Speaking of some of the standout features on board, Jonny Horsfield says: “SCOUT has been an exciting project for the H2 Yacht Design and Hakvoort teams. The owner’s brief called for a rugged explorer style yacht intended to look like a conversion from a commercial vessel. We gave her crisp, distinctive lines and integrated forward sloping windows. We placed the tenders on the bow, leaving them exposed to add to the utilitarian aesthetic.
“There is a helideck and a forward observation lounge in addition to an expansive sun deck,” Horsfield continues. “It allows unobstructed views fore and aft which will be one of the focal points of living onboard. The whole design process was centered around a romantic idea of original ocean exploration and SCOUT’s design - inside and out - really reflects that. She’s a fantastically unique vessel.”
Powered by twin CATERPILLAR 3512C diesel engines, SCOUT is designed to cruise at 12.5 knots and will be able to reach a top speed of 14.8 knots. Combined with easy technical accessibility and minimum maintenance requirements, an autonomous range of 4,800 nm at 12 knots ensures that she will live up to her ocean-going credentials. Her Lloyds ice classed hull adds to her serious exploration attributes as a go anywhere world cruising yacht.
On board, she accommodates eight guests across four generous staterooms on the main deck, in addition to an impressive owner’s suite that is located on the dedicated owner’s deck above. The lower deck features the crew accommodations consisting two staff cabins and nine crew cabins. Her captain's cabin is situated on the bridge deck.
Hakvoort Shipyard was introduced to the owners by Stuart Larsen and Josh Gulbranson of FRASER YACHTS who also organized the owners project team.
The successful launch of SCOUT marks a significant milestone for Hakvoort Shipyard. SCOUT will be the largest vessel in Hakvoort’s fleet upon delivery in a few months’ time, taking the title from the 61-metre motor yacht JUST J’S delivered in 2016.
Further details regarding YN249’s interior design will be revealed at a later date.

PLANET NINE @ YACHTS by NEPTUNEA Gentleman Adventurer for the 21st Century
The owner of Planet Nine had toyed with the idea of building a global exploration yacht for over ten years. A knowledgeable yachtsman, he anticipated the current interest in adventure and off-the beaten track cruising well ahead of the market. Launched in May 2018, Planet Nine has appeared just at the right time and with inimitable style.
Indeed, to call her an exploration yacht is slightly misleading. Planet Nine isn’t a conversion or a work-boat. Her streamlined profile, from the pen of the talented Tim Heywood, is reminiscent of a beefy military vessel with the same air of capability, solidity and power.
The owner, who was very much involved in the design and construction, focused as much on long-term voyages in extreme conditions as on traditional summer cruising. Serious, go-anywhere sea keeping characteristics were essential. Planet Nine can deal with sea ice up to 15 centimetres thick thanks to her thick-plated and densely ribbed hull. The hull and superstructure were built by the commercial shipyard Cantieri San Marco in La Spezia. She was then towed down the coast to The Italian Sea Group’s yard in Marina di Carrara for completion to luxury yacht standards. Planet Nine is the largest yacht the yard has built. “The result is excellent,” says The Italian Sea Group’s vice-president Giuseppe Taranto: “the specification was very tough and the client demanding but we are confident Planet Nine will be a benchmark for future projects”.
Planet Nine took over 30 months to finish and incorporates some very unique features. Ice classed 1D by Lloyd’s, her seawater intakes are protected from ice and low temperatures. She is equipped with dynamic positioning, essential for global cruising in sensitive areas, and zero speed stabilizers for comfort at anchor.
She has a commercially approved helideck designed with a lifting platform and an enclosed below-deck hangar suitable for an Augusta Grand or similarly dimensioned helicopter up to 8 tons in weight. The heli hangar includes a refuelling facility with storage for 9000 liters of fuel.
This means Planet Nine can handle two aircraft at the same time. One on deck and another stowed in the hangar which enables the yacht to operate a heliport and handle incoming flights even when the owner is on board.
“She is unusually versatile and can handle even the most complex logistic operations,” says Stuart Larsen from Fraser Yachts who represents Planet Nine for sale. “The layout has been well-thought out and is functional both in hot and cold weather conditions”.
The interior layout is as purposeful as the exterior. Although the superstructure is relatively small relative to her 2100 gross tons and 13m beam, the layout makes use of every inch of space.
Five of the eight guest staterooms are located on the Lower Deck, under the helideck. The engine room and the technical areas have been moved below the waterline to the what is usually known as the Tank Deck. Noise levels have also benefited from this arrangement.
The interior was designed by Tino Zervudachi of the London-based studio Mlinaric, Henry and Zervudachi. The design and decoration are as much a response to the context as to the way the owner wishes to live life on board. Particular emphasis was placed on the use of colour and comfort. The yacht is elegant with stylistic flair yet has a cosy quality and does not feel over-designed.
Since she was built for extreme, long-distance cruising – she can cruise for 6,000 miles at 14 knots and a staggering 10,000 miles at 10 knots – business requirements have not been overlooked. A large meeting room/library with adjoining lounge is located on the Main Deck and there is a smaller private study on the Upper Deck.
The Upper Deck houses the main indoor living area. There is a stunning Inside-Outside salon, an Observation Lounge forward and a super-surround cinema with lounge beds.
Guest accommodation is spacious (sleeping 16 max) and well lit. In addition to the five guest staterooms on the Lower Deck with direct access to the Beach Club, two staterooms are located on the Main Deck, the full-beam Owner’s suite and a VIP, while another VIP, with a private outside area, is on the Bridge Deck. An elevator serves all decks from the Lower to the Sun Deck. There is also a dedicated crew elevator. Planet Nine can carry 20 crew.
