Heesen announced that project RUYA is ready for the outfitting stage. Her delivery is scheduled for March 2017.

RUYA aka YN 17947 is a 47m full displacement motor yacht with a total exterior deck space of 180 sqm. Her sun deck has a space of 85 sqm.

At the stern is a transom that transforms into a swim platform. There will be also the tender garage with a stored 6.5m tender and a 3m jet ski.

RUYA‘s interior was designed by Bannenberg & Rowell. Twelve guests can sleep aboard in 5 staterooms. The owner’s suite is located on the main deck at the forward area. The other staterooms are on the lower deck and equipped with ensuite bathrooms.

“We took the idea of movement as the foundation for the new interior concept for Project Ruya,” Dickie Bannenberg comments, “so expect a taut muscular and fluid design with sporty, hi-tech finishes. The ambience will be fresh and light with textiles, carpets and graphics discreetly referencing themes of energy, direction and progress. We feel this is synonymous with Heesen’s progressive and contemporary brand values, and that Project Ruya will be a worthy complement to the Heesen fleet. She is our fifth collaboration with the yard in its popular 47m class.”

Heesen will give her two MTU 8V 4000 diesel engines for a top speed of 15 knots. At a economical speed of 12 knots she has a transatlantic range of 4,000 nautical miles.
