    The keel has been laid for another Heesen build. This one is hull 20655 and is being built under hull name 'Venus' for the owner. She should be delivered by the Spring of 2025. A usual, this vessel will accommodate her 12 guests in 6 cabins. The internal volume should be around 760 GT and include a large 82 square meter master suite. Exterior is by Frank Laupman with an interior by Luca Dini. Top speed should be 15.5-knots utilizing a pair of MTU 4,000 M63s (IMO Tier III).

    But it isn't an issue, as Venus is the Project name, not the final name.

    Sorry, the lighted name boards Mack up fooled me.
    Still, I think some names like BRITTANIA, HIGHLANDER, CARINTHIA, LIMITLESS, OCTUPUS,CHRISTINA,SHAMROCK,AMERICA should be considered retired. It seems a shame to put so much effort and money into a boat, only to have the name evoke another more famous yacht.

    Honestly though, there have been few occasions where the project name has become the real name of the vessel. A company like Lurssen for example tends to use Project names which may nod in the direction of the final name but they too have used the final name as the project name...the last two builds to come from them are examples of this... Project Blue and Project Opera.
