The 47-metre yacht is due for delivery in March 2017.

Project Ruya is the Dutch yard’s latest superyacht to reach the outfitting phase of her build, and, when completed, the 47-metre displacement yacht will be just under 500GT.

Exterior entertaining is a focal point on the yacht, with an 85-square-metre sundeck and a large table for alfresco dining aft on the upper deck. On the main deck and foredeck there are further exterior seating and lounging areas.Project Ruya

With interior design by Bannenberg & Rowell, the yacht will enjoy a comfortable and modern décor. “We took the idea of movement as the foundation for the new interior concept for Project Ruya,” says Dickie Bannenberg, “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.”

Project Ruya will accommodate 12 guests in one master cabin, two doubles and two twins with a pullman in each twin.  The full-beam master suite will be on the main deck forward, and will also contain a private study and large bathroom. Project Ruya

A stern garage will hold a 6.5-metre tender and a Waverunner, whilst a fold-down transom door will create a large swim platform.

Project Ruya will have a top speed of 15 knots, and a range of 4,000 nautical miles at 12 knots. The yacht is currently available for purchase, with a projected delivery date of March 2017.
