Heesen Yachts delivers YN14844 ‘My Petra’ to Maltese owners...

Industry News

This 44m (144ft) dark-blue-hulled motoryacht was on show at Cannes 2009, AKA the Festival International de la Plaisance de Cannes 2009, which runs until September 14.


She is the sixth of Heesen's all-aluminium semi-displacement 4400 Class. Like the smaller 3700 Class model, she was designed inside and out by Frank Laupman of Omega Architects, who worked in close association with Heesen’s own in-house design and engineering team.
Pushed along by twin MTU 16V4000 M90 diesels, each delivering up to 2,720kW (3,650hp), My Petra is good for a maximum speed of 25 knots.
Eight guests can be accommodated in four cabins on the lower deck ‒ two VIP and two twin cabins.
Heesen Yachts builds between 37-65m (121-213ft), although its biggest launches to date have been 50m (164ft) and its largest work in progress contract is for a 55m (180ft).
It order book remains relatively healthy. No fewer than 14 yachts will be delivered by 2012; they add up to a total of 650m (2,132ft), which means an average length of 46.4m (152ft).
