Heesen Yachts has announced its third superyacht sale in seven weeks, with 47m Project Ruya (YN 17947) sold to an experienced American yachtsman by Heesen’s U.S. representative, Thom Conboy.
Ruya is the sistership to Heesen’s award-winning Elena, and is Heesen’s fifth 47-metre superyacht, with exterior design by Omega Architects and interior styling by Bannenberg & Rowell.
In a recent statement, Heesen said, “The steel-hulled, 47m displacement class below 500GT is a proven design that has been used as a platform to build 12 sister ships. No one is alike, as all of them are the expression of the individuality and unique lifestyle of their owners.”
On deck, Ruya has an enormous 85sqm sundeck with space for dining, relaxing and exercising. She also has an alfresco dining space on the upper deck aft, with seating on the main deck aft and foredeck to create a total of 180sqm of outdoor deck space.
With interiors from the boards of Bannenberg & Rowell, Project Ruya can accommodate 12 guests in five suites, with design inspiration drawn from Galactica Star, which the London design studio also worked on.
Dickie Bannenberg said, “We took the idea of movement as the foundation for the new interior concept for Project Ruya, so expect taut, masculine and fluid design with sporty hi-tech finishes. The ambiance will be fresh and light, with textiles, carpets and graphics discreetly referencing themes of energy, direction and progress.”
She offers polished stainless steel, joinery motifs and subtly patterned marble throughout.
There are 10 other projects currently under development at the Dutch shipyard in Oss, including 49.8m Project Nova, which was recently launched as M/Y Home.
Project Ruya will be ready for delivery to her new owners on 19th June 2017, when she will spend the summer season cruising the Mediterranean before displaying at the 2017 Monaco Yacht Show and the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.
