    Heesen’s first launch of the year 2004, the 144’ (43.90 meter)
    yacht will be going to the Olympic Games. Bilmar, launched on February 6th,
    2004 and owned by a prominent Greek businessman, will host the VIPs attending
    the Games. Visitors to the yacht will celebrate in splendor aboard this
    magnificent vessel.

    Bilmar, with her flag blue hull, is a full aluminum, semi displacement twin screw motor yacht. She was designed by the Heesen Yachts Design Team and Omega Architects. Her interior was designed by Veta Tsoukala and the owner. On her initial sea trial, she achieved speeds of 29.2 knots with 2 X MTU 16V4000 M90 Engines.

    Here Bilmar is seen competing in the 44 meter freestyle event... ;)
  2. Heesen's craftsmenship and artwork continue to the interior. This yacht is just as sleek on the inside, as it is on the outside. This is the dining room...
  3. The neutral tones and glossy natural wood theme continues through out "Bilmar". This is the game room. About the only thing missing is a billiard table, which will most likely remain absent from yachts until such time as a gyroscopically stabilized pool table is invented!
  4. Here's the game room from another angle. Notice the back-lit hand-rail going down the steps. It's a minor thing, but it goes to show the attention to detail put forth into every element of the yachts construction.
  5. This is the lounge onboard Bilmore. Lately, the interiors on larger yachts have been gravitating toward a classical, antique decor. This is fine if you like old furniture. But for me, a state of the art yacht should have modern furnishings and Bilmar successfully delivers this, but with a level of comfort that is inviting.
  6. Good photographers have the ability to add depth and dimension to a picture. In this case.... the depth comes from the sheer size of the master stateroom. Notice the workstation that is incorporated into the owners quarters. It is situated to provide a view outside. Nice!
  7. The master bath runs the span of the beam and features textiles and finishes that blend with the theme of the master suite. It features a whirlpool bath, twin sinks and a shower.
  8. The guest quarters are more luxurious than most master staterooms. Both guest rooms provide large windows to enjoy the view outside of the yacht.
  9. The guest bathroom. Larger than many flats in England!
  10. No pictorial review of a yacht would be complete without the bridge. One single captain's chair is evidence that the ship's electronics are maintaining control over a plethora of integrated systems. This console would keep an internet gamer busy for days!

    Surprisingly, given Heesen's signature "swept-back" windows, there is a large amount of headroom and visibility on the bridge. Heesen's sleek silhouette-like yachts look fast and in reality... they ARE fast. Both in nautical miles per hour and in sales figures. They recently sold 5 yachts in 5 days. In looking at these pictures, it easy to understand why! :)
