Heesen launches 44-meter "Lady L" megayacht
The latest Heesen luxury yacht has been launched today by the Dutch yacht manufacturer. She is the 44-meter "Lady L" YN 15944, known before as 'Project Zentric'. Heesen announced back in mid-November that Project Zentric
had been sold and to pass that cusp of success, she has been launched! Lady L
is now the eighth 44-meter yacht by Heesen. The first vessel (YN 13644 MY "Sedation") was launched back in 2007.
YN 15944 (Lady L
) was the third contract signed in 2011 and in such an economic climate this demonstrates that there will always be a market for superb quality and technical excellence, both qualities that this Dutch superyacht builder excels in. And by acquiring a yacht already under construction, there is no extended lead-time.
A quick look at Lady L
, she presents a dark hull with contrasting white superstructure. The exterior design by Frank Laupman of Omega Yacht Design is sporty and sleek. The interior is also by Frank Laupman. Two double cabins along with two twins exist on the lower deck while the spacious master stateroom sits on the deck above (main deck).
Technically Lady L
carries twin MTU 2.720kW engines that combine with unmatched experience in weight reduction and the ultraefficient Heesen hull to ensure that an increase in space never means a decrease in speed. Project Zentric reaches the remarkable speed of 25 knots and is the fastest 44 metre yacht of her style on the market. Building in aluminium to enormously demanding tolerances, the Heesen hull-form is unique – quite simply no other ship's shape so optimises the way a yacht moves through water. Meticulous attention to weight reduction results in increased levels of luxury.
