Heesen Yachts launched their eighth vessel in the successful 44m all aluminium class on the 13th of January 2012 at their facility in Oss, Netherlands. The yacht, formerly project Zentric was christened MY "Lady L" at the launch by her new and proud owner.

The Heesen hull form is unique, and quite simply no other yacht shape can so effectively optimise the way a yacht moves through the water, this is down to building in aluminium to enormously demanding tolerances. Lady L will be able to reach speeds of 25kts, making her the fastest 44m yacht on the market. Heesen have designed Lady L to maximise the amount of deck space available, this is shown in the 45sqm sun deck. Other outside areas include the main and upper aft decks where guest can enjoy alfresco dining or relaxing in the shade, and a large seating area forward on the foredeck where guests can catch the suns ray's. Frank Laupman from Omega Architects designed the interior where pale woods and fabrics emphasise light and space.
Lady L will be able to accommodate 10 guests in 5 cabins. The full beam master suite is situated on the main deck and includes a study and full beam his and hers marble bathroom. Two double and two twin cabins, all with ensuite marble bathrooms are located on the lower deck.
