Improve-it = Heesen 44.77 meters Hull Number 15944

Heesen Yachts is proud to announce the sale of Project Zentrics. YN 15944 is the eighth in the successful 44 metre all-aluminium class: The first vessel, YN 13644 MY Sedation was launched back in 2007.  YN 15944 is the third contract signed in 2011.  Project Zentric’s twin MTU 3646hp engines combine with unmatched experience in weight reduction and an ultra-efficient  hull ensure that an increase in space never means a decrease in speed, with a max of 25 knots. Meticulous attention to weight reduction results in increased levels of luxury. Using the experience gained from the previous 44 metre aluminium yachts, Heesen has designed Project Zentric to fully maximise the amount of deck space available. Guests will enjoy life at sea on the 45 square metre sun deck. The main aft deck and upper aft deck are the perfect location for alfresco dining or just lounging in the shade, while the seating area on the fore deck is ideal for enjoying the breeze when at anchor or for privacy when docked stern-to in harbour. Frank Laupman from Omega designed the sleek exterior lines and the timelessly elegant interior where pale woods and precious fabrics emphasise light and space. The guest areas are elegant and clutter-free thanks to the sleek, classic deco design.  The open-plan main saloon is split into three distinct areas: in addition to the main sofas and dining area, there is an intimate semicircular seating area adjacent to the huge, curved sliding glass doors that lead to the aft deck.  The sky lounge has been designed to provide several different entertaining and relaxation spaces. Deep sofas line both sides of the room, while to aft a circular arrangement of stools and table creates a laid-back atmosphere. Ten guests are accommodated in five cabins. The full-beam master suite is situated on the main deck and includes a study and full-beam his and hers marble bathroom. Two double and two twin cabins, all with ensuite marble bathrooms, are located on the lower deck.
