All purchases were made by AZ Scheepstechniek as well; from main engines to windows, anchors, doors, deck equipment and propeller shafts up to cushions, lights and door handles.
Laying keel was at September 28 – 2011, Launching May 28 – 2013, less than 4 weeks later than initially estimated, and 100% within the budget foreseen.
Heliad II is a traditional looking yacht with a very light and modern interior. With 5 luxury cabins and a tender store inside the hull the space available for guest is enormous. The yacht is finished to a very high yacht building standard, but is still built to a reasonable cost because the owner did choose to go nowhere too extremes. The outfitting is the best quality, but with a strong emphasis on simplicity in system operation and maintenance. No complicated alarm and monitoring systems are fitted.
It was a challenge for AZ Scheepstechniek to make this a real custom built project, fulfilling owners wishes without restrictions in yard standards of any kind.
In the beginning of 2017 HELIAD II was SOLD to a new owner and is now known as ROBBIE BOBBY
