Heesen Yachts’ new 47m Ruya ‘ready to go’

After successfully completing her recent sea trials out on the North Sea, the brand new 47-metre Heesen superyacht Ruya has exceeded performance expectations and is now “ready to go”, according to Commercial Director of the Dutch shipyard, Mark Cavendish.

Ruya offers clients the rare opportunity to own a brand new, untouched 47-metre superyacht built to a level of quality craftsmanship that only Heesen Yachts can provide. The project means interested parties have the opportunity to receive their new superyacht without the waiting times generally associated with such a one-off masterpiece.

Heesen Yachts once again involved the skilled British design studio of Bannenberg & Rowell, who are no strangers to working with Heesen on their projects, to create the yacht’s interior areas. Ruya is finished with four spacious guest cabins on the lower deck with her full beam master suite, the prime real estate onboard, awaiting her new owner on the main deck forward. The experience of such a design office means Ruya is not simply finished with a bland and generic interior, but rather a highly modern and edgy style with a fresh approach that is unmistakably the work of Bannenberg & Rowell.

The full-width upper saloon is finished in a more informal style and offers guests an airy environment to relax and hang out after a fun day on the water.

As the 12th version of this sub 500 GT hull design, Ruya comes with a proven and tested steel platform that benefits from years of constant upgrading and reengineering. This was proved during her sea trial phase where she out performed the calculated top speed by reaching 15.5 knots under the supervision of Heesen’s engineering team.

Ruya comes complete with all interior and deck furniture and clients are left to include their personal stamp of style through the selection of fine porcelain ware as well as a tender and other watersport equipment to suit their lifestyle.

Ready for cruising this summer, Ruya is offered at €27,900,000.
