Heesen launches Lady L
Heesen has announced the launch of YN 15944, formerly 'Project Zentric', at the yard’s Oss facility in Holland. The motoryacht was christened Lady L at her launch on 13 January.
Lady L is the eighth in Heesen’s 44m all-aluminium class since the line began in 2007 with M/Y Sedation.
Built on spec by Heesen, Lady L’s buyer was introduced by Nakhimov Yachts. The client signed the contract for the yacht in November 2011.
“In this economically tumultuous period, being able to build boats before you have buyers for them is a real sign of financial health and strength. Heesen is fortunate enough to be among the few shipyards that can still do this,” said a statement from Heesen.
“This is an incredible result, made possible by tireless team-work between Heesen and all the professionals that contributed to the genesis of Lady L,” it continued.

Lady L is the third of the four contracts Heesen signed in 2011. She will be delivered to her owner later this year.
