Heesen Sell 47m Project Hé

Heesen Yachts in Holland announced earlier this week that the 47m (154ft) displacement, YN 16947 Project , was sold on June 13 2014. Mark Cavendish, Sales and Marketing Director at Heesen Yachts comments: "This is the fourth contract we have signed in the first six months of 2014. We are delighted to see that the market is finally picking up!" This is a great order book for the yard in the first six months of the year.

She has a well engineered round bilge hull with a bulbous bow. She will be powered by two MTU 8V 4000 M63 that will ensure smooth and safe cruising in all sea conditions and a range of 4,000nm at 12kts, while zero speed stabilizers will guarantee maximum comfort at anchor.

Her sophisticated interior is designed by London based and multi award winning studio Bannenberg & Rowell Design who are on their fifth successful collaboration with this Dutch megayacht builder. The fleet includes the 37m Aurelia, 47m Elandess (now Raasta), Lady Petra and My Secret, and the recently launched 65m Galactica Star.

Guru designer in Bannenberg & Rowell Design Dieter Rams’ motto to omit everything superfluous so that the essential is shown to the best possible advantage guided Bannenberg & Rowell in their approach to the interior design of Project Hé. The project name "Hé" in Chinese means "the simplest form of peace and harmony" and Bannenberg & Rowell chose it to unify in one ideogram the essence of their design theme: simplicity as the ultimate form of sophistication.

Twelve guests will enjoy a relaxing atmosphere on board where light colors are combined with natural and discreet contrast finishes. She will be delivered to her owners in February 2015.
