Heesen Yachts is proud to announce the delivery of the 44m Lady L and the 47m Lady Petra to their Owners.


MY Lady L (YN 15944, formerly Project Zentric) is the eighth in the successful 44m semi-displacement class. MY Lady L reaches the remarkable speed of 25 knots, making her the fastest 44 metre yacht of her style on the market, thanks to twin MTU 2.720kW engines combined with unmatched experience in weight reduction and the ultra-efficient Heesen hull. This ensures an increase in space does not mean a decrease in speed. Using the experience gained from constructing previous 44 metre aluminium yachts, Heesen has designed MY Lady L to fully maximise the amount of deck space available resulting in even greater levels of luxury. Her elegant interior has been created by Frank Laupman from Omega Architects.


MY Lady Petra (YN 15747) is the seventh in the award-winning 47 metre displacement class. Christened on Saturday April 28th, 2012 in the presence of Mr. and Mrs. Heesen and almost seven hundred guests, MY Lady Petra is the second vessel built by Heesen Yachts for its founder. Lady Petra's interior has been designed by Bannenberg and Rowell and features a great variety of precious materials cleverly combined to create a sophisticated yet comfortable décor.

About Heesen

Yachts Founded by Frans Heesen in 1978 in Oss, the Netherlands, Heesen Yachts was the first Dutch shipyard to employ aluminium alloy for the construction of yacht hulls. Since that time the yard has become a world leader in the design, engineering and construction of high performance, all-aluminium motor yachts. In 1992 Heesen Yachts expanded the business to include the construction of traditional, long-range, steel-hulled displacement yachts. Today, the company can create magnificent private yachts ranging from 37 metres and 65 metres in length (121ft 4in to 213ft 3in). In the past three years Heesen Yachts has delivered fourteen magnificent motor yachts, and currently has another twelve (7 aluminium and 5 steel) under construction that will keep the shipyard busy until 2015.
