  1. Heesen Yachts Signs New Order

    Heesen Yachts is proud to announce the signing of a new contract for a 47-meter displacement motor-yacht, Hull Number 15747, for delivery in 2012. This new building contract is even more special for the Company since the client is Frans Heesen, former owner and founder of the shipyard who comments: “I am delighted to start the new year by announcing the contract for my own new boat, which my wife and I signed some days ago! I am planning to spend many joyful days with my family and numerous grandchildren aboard this beautiful 47-metre.” This is the second yacht under construction for Frans after the 4400- series, "My Petra", which was delivered to him in June 2009.

    YN 15747 is the eighth yacht in Heesen’s highly successful 47-metre full-displacement series and, as such, is the sistership to YN 14347, M/Y "Blind Date" (2009); the award winning YN 14047, M/Y "Elandess" ("Elandess II") (2008); YN 13547, M/Y "Mon Plaisir" (2007); YN 13147, M/Y "Let it Be" (2006); and YN 12247, M/Y "Yalla" (2004). She is also the sister-ship of the two hulls currently under construction: YN 15147 scheduled for delivery in 2010, and YN 15347 scheduled for delivery in 2011. The sale of this new vessel means that four new contracts were signed in the last 12 months by Heesen Yachts, and brings the number of vessels currently in construction at this premier Dutch shipyard to the amazing total of 13, figures which confirm the strength and financial reliability of this world-renowned company.

    Today, the company can create magnificent private yachts within the size range of 37 metres and 65 metres in length (121ft 4in to 213ft 3in). In 2009 Heesen Yachts has delivered four magnificent motor yachts, three with semi-displacement hull forms (the 44m, "Jems"; the 44m, "My Petra"; and the 47m, "4YOU"; and the 47m, "Blind Date" with a full displacement hull form).
