Heesen Yachts announces delivery of M/Y Elena

Heesen Yachts has announced that on 11th July 2014, Y/N 16847, formerly project Margarita, now christened M/Y Elena was delivered to her owners.

M/Y Elena is one of the newly 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 4th and 5th of June in particularly heavy sea conditions in the North Sea with everything going 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 commented, "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 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 of September where she will be available for viewing.
