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.

SEPTEMBER 2009

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).
