With an ice belt and a range of over 5000 nm, M/Y Heeus can travel to the most remote places on the planet

Bering Yachts has launched a new-build B145 yacht, M/Y Heeus, at the Bering shipyard in Antalya, Turkey. The 44.2-metre explorer yacht is the first hull in the flagship B145 range of expedition vessels.

Constructed with a steel hull and aluminium superstructure, the Bering 145 explorer is a semi-custom platform designed and constructed by an in-house team of engineers and naval architects. The yacht has an ice belt that allows it to travel to the coldest places on the planet.

Commenting on the launch, Bering Yachts founder Alexei Mikhailov said: “We are very proud to have this first hull in the model range to be launched on the water. This will be the beginning of a new chapter for the Bering Yachts company.”

Heeus can accommodate 12 guests and up to 10 crew members. The vessel has a 6-cabin layout on three decks, and a flybridge with a jacuzzi and bar zone. The master stateroom is located on the main deck toward the bow, with glass windows measuring more than 9.5 square meters.

A saloon with a dining area for 12 people and a lounge area are located on the main deck. Another dining table is on the upper deck, in the sky lounge. Heeus also features beach club and 25sqm garage zone. The yacht has 4 crew cabins and captain’s quarter.

Heeus has a maximum speed of 15 knots and a cruising speed of 12 knots. The superyacht features a hybrid propulsion system, with a propeller driven by electric motors charged by a bank of batteries. The banks are recharged by high-efficiency, variable-speed DC generators. Docking and mooring is possible in the electric mode.

 B145 has a fuel capacity of 95,600l, offering an autonomous range in excess of 5000 nm.
