On January 23, Heesen Yachts announced the launch of the 44-meter YN 15944, christened MY Lady L (formerly Project Zentric). This yacht is the eighth of Heesen’s 44-meter all-aluminum fleet. The contract was signed last November through Nakhimov Yachts.

“It’s likely guests will spend most of their time at sea on the wonderful 45 square meter sun deck,” states the company in the recent press release. “They’ll also enjoy the main and upper aft decks as the perfect locations for alfresco dining or just lounging in the shade; while the seating area on the foredeck is ideal for catching the breeze when at anchor, or for privacy when docked stern-to in the harbour.”

Frank Laupman from Omega designed the interior, which features pale woods and precious fabrics. “The sky lounge has been designed to provide several different entertaining and relaxation spaces,” states the company in the recent press release. “Deep sofas line both sides of the room, while an aft circular arrangement of stools and table creates a laid-back atmosphere.”
