As the final delivery of 2006, Let It Be, named after the famous Beatles’ song, undertook its maiden voyage on 24 January 2007. This is the second vessel that Heesen has built for the same owner, both bearing the same name. The first vessel is a 37 metre, 121’ semi-displacement vessel, while the second one is a 47 metre, 154’ full-displacement vessel. Let It Be has a steel hull and an aluminium superstructure. The two XMTU 8V4000M90 engines guarantee a top speed of 15.5 knots and a cruising speed of 14 knots.
The central open staircase provides the perfect entrance to the yacht, with its combination of semi-gloss cherry and walnut wood, copper accents, marble floors and colourful upholstery. Let It Be has a spacious, warm yet contemporary ambiance. The forward area accommodates the owner’s en suite stateroom. The lower deck has two VIP staterooms, one double and one twin roomed. There are also two guest cabins. The main deck provides direct access to the wheelhouse and captain’s area.
On its three levels, Let It Be has many facilities for relaxation. The main deck aft has a lounge area. A big dining arrangement and sky lounge are situated on the wheelhouse deck aft. On the sundeck, there is another lounge and dining area and a jacuzzi. The home port of this 131st Heesen Yachts vessel will be the south of France.
