Heesen Yachts announced that YN 17947 (Project Ruya) has been sold to an experienced American yachtsman.
The client was introduced by Thom Conboy, Heesen’s US representative, who worked closely with the in-house sales team to close the deal in record time. This is Heesen’s third yacht sale this year.
Project Ruya is yet another superb example of Heesen’s commercial strategy: thanks to its solid financial foundation, the shipyard is able to anticipate the construction of new projects in order to significantly reduce delivery times. Project Ruya will be ready for delivery to her new owners on June 19, 2017.
After spending the summer season cruising the Mediterranean she will be on display at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.
The steel-hulled, 47m displacement class below 500GT is a proven design that has been used as a platform to build 12 sister ships. No one is alike, as all of them are the expression of the individuality and unique lifestyle of their owners.[...]
Project Ruya is the third yacht sold in just seven weeks, proving once again the strength of this Dutch shipyard. Ten yachts are currently under construction at the facility in Oss, with deliveries that span through 2019.
