Heesen Yachts has announced that order 2014 Y/N 16847, formerly Project Margarita, now christened Elena, was delivered to her owners.
Elena is one of the newly styled vessels in the award-winning 47-metre class, and one of Heesens icons of classic contemporary yacht design.
Intensive sea trials took place early in June, in particularly heavy sea conditions in the North Sea. The builder reported that everything went according to plan.
Zero speed stabilisers ensure maximum comfort at anchor and the well-engineered round bilge hull with bulbous bow, powered by two MTU 8V 4000 M63, guarantees smooth and safe cruising in all sea conditions, providing a range of 4.000nm at 12 knots.
“When I came to the shipyard in Oss it was love at first sight: This is going to be our home away from home on the ocean!, comments the owner.
Elena is now ready for her maiden voyage to the Scandinavian regions before going to the Mediterranean and finally to the Monaco Yacht Show in September where she will be available for viewing.
