Chinese yard's latest features exterior design by Bill Dixon

Chinese shipyard Heysea Yachts has revealed the new Seaview 56 sailing catamaran at the SMC International Yacht show, held on the Shenzhen Coast from October 15-18.

While the yard’s Asteria 108 was the largest vessel at the show, the 17.61-metre cat garnered plenty of attention.

Designed on the outside by Bill Dixon, with interiors by Paolo Dose, the Seaview 56 expands the living space by 30% compared to a conventional yacht.

For charters, five guest cabins can be located on the lower deck, with a larger salon for parties or family gatherings. For owners, a fully equipped galley can be put on the main deck.

Heysea has confirmed they’re aiming at the Mediterranean, the Caribbean, and the Southeast Asia markets with their newest release.
