„At Heesen we love challenges. While we are busy building one of the world’s largest and fastest full-aluminium motor yachts – 80-metre Project Cosmos – we wondered if it would be possible to recreate her using LEGO® bricks.
Since our engineers and craftsmen are more used to dealing with lightweight aluminium, we instead challenged the two finalist teams from the Dutch-Belgian television show LEGO® Masters.
Recreating our flagship yacht using only LEGO® bricks proved to be almost as challenging and spectacular as building the real thing. To be able to include actual LEGO® Minifigures (commonly referred to as minifigs) on board, the scale needs to be 1:42, which means the models measure nearly two metres.“
With a length of 80.07 metres and a top speed of 29 knots, Project Cosmos will be one of the world’s largest and fastest full-aluminium motoryachts. She will feature a helicopter landing pad that transforms into an outdoor cinema, a stunning seven-metre glass bottom pool and a sumptuous beach club.
