Netherlands - Heesen Yachts is delighted to announce the delivery of Y/N 16847, M/Y Elena
Heesen Yachts would like to announce that on July 11th, 2014 Y/N 16847, formerly Project Margarita, now christened M/Y Elena was delivered to her Owners.
M/Y Elena is one of the usedly styled vessels in the award-winning 47-metre class, a breed of Heesens that are icons of classic contemporary yacht design.
Intensive sea trials took place on June 4th and 5th in particularly heavy sea conditions in the North Sea and everything went according to plan.
Zero speed stabilisers will ensure maximum comfort at anchor and the well-engineered round bilge hull with bulbous bow, powered by two MTU 8V 4000 M63, will guarantee smooth and safe cruising in all sea conditions and a range of 4.000nm at 12 knots.
The Owner comments: "When I came to the shipyard in Oss the first time it was love at first sight: This is going to be our home away from home on the ocean!" This magnificent vessel is now ready for her maiden voyage to the Scandinavian regions before going to the Mediterranean and finally to the Monaco Yacht Show from 24th to 27th September where she will be available for viewing.
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 building of yacht hulls. Since then 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 their business to include the construction of traditional displacement, long-range steel-hulled yachts, and today the company can also deliver magnificent private yachts within the 34 - 75 metres size range, and beyond. In 35 years we have delivered nearly 170 yachts.
The current fleet includes aluminium, steel, displacement, semi-displacement and the used revolutionary fast displacement. Twelve yachts are currently under construction and their deliveries span through to 2017.
Heesen is financially secure, large enough to cope with complex construction, small enough to care about each project, motivated to pioneer innovations and dedicated to continuing the tradition of Dutch quality shipbuilding.
