Heesen motor yacht Lionshare completes major refit

Written by

30 years after her completion by Heesen in 1987, the 39.32-metre motor yacht Lionshare has completed her latest major refit, with two earlier refits in 2008 and 2013. The most recent work included a full paint job and the installation of new John Deere 65kW generators, alongside brand new stainless steel anchor pockets and hawse pipes. Her latest photo shoot below details her most recent transformation.

The refit dramatically modernised Lionshare’s appearance, giving her a contemporary and open layout. She showcases a new combination of hardwood floors, light colours and dark woods throughout her five spacious staterooms and entertaining areas.

During the course of the refit, Lionshare also benefitted from a 6,000 hour service on both of her CAT engines, and a fresh hull plating inspection. In an eco-friendly move, all of Lionshare’s interior lighting was replaced with the more energy-efficient LED lights.

Lionshare’s newly serviced twin Deutz AG SBA 16M 816 engines can reach 1295 HP each, and provide her with a maximum speed of 18 knots, and a cruising speed of 14 knots. Her range, which has enabled many transatlantic crossings over a busy charter career, is 3200 nautical miles

Lionshare is currently located in Florida and is available for both charter and sale with IYC.
