With her hull and superstructure complete, Heesen’s Project Ruya is starting to see her systems and interior installed. Since she’s a spec build, you can still step in and personalize her.
Part of the Heesen 47M (154-foot) full-displacement series, Project Ruya emphasizes the most popular megayacht amenities. These include a tender garage capable of holding a few PWCs plus a primary boat. They also include alfresco relaxation and dining. Picture yourself doing so on the 915-square-foot (85-square-meter) sundeck, for example. And picture your guests in four staterooms below decks, some of which can include Pullmans.
If you’re a fan of modern decor, you may share the vision that Bannenberg & Rowell Design have for Project Ruya. It’s “a taut muscular and fluid design,” in the words of company co-founder Dickie Bannenberg. There’s a light ambiance and “sporty, high-tech finishes,” he adds, “with textiles, carpets and graphics discreetly referencing themes of energy, direction and progress.”
Since the steel-hulled Project Ruya is intended for long-range cruising, Heesen anticipates a best range of 4,000 nautical miles at 12 knots. Twin MTUs should permit a 15-knot top end, too.
You can go cruising aboard Project Ruya, further fitted with a bulbous bow, come 2017.
