Heesen Yachts delivers M/Y Asya


Dutch builder Heesen Yachts has delivered M/Y Asya. Launched in December, M/Y Asya is the second in the restyled 47m class designed by Frank Laupman of Omega Architects.

The restyling houses the rescue tender in an enclosed bay in front of the wheelhouse and redesigned crew accommodations to comply with LY3 regulations. Her interior is from London-based Bannenberg & Rowell.

Powered by two MTU8V 4000 M63 diesel engines, M/Y Asya’s steel hull with bulbous bow passed sea trials in the North Sea in early February. At her cruising speed of 12 knots, the yacht has a range of 4,000 nautical miles.

The builder has nine yachts under construction with deliveries scheduled through to 2017, according to a company statement.
