Book Ends sets sail for the Med

Dutch builder Heesen Yachts has delivered Project Ruya to its new owner who has now named the yacht Book Ends.

The yacht was bought by an experienced American yachtsman and was Heesen’s third sale this year.

The client was introduced by Thom Conboy, Heesen’s US representative.  

Book Ends 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. 

After spending the summer season cruising the Mediterranean she will be on display at the Monaco Yacht Show and then at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. 

The steel-hulled, 47-m displacement class below 500 GT 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. 

The interior design of Book Ends started life in the Bannenberg & Rowell studio. Taking inspiration from kinetic energy, the design language is taut, muscular and fluid with sporty high tech finishes. The ambience is fresh and light, with textiles, carpets and graphics discreetly referencing themes of energy and progress. Polished stainless steel, joinery motifs and the subtly patterned marble suggest a sense of direction and articulation. 

This rich and luxurious design has been perfectly executed by the highly talented craftsmen at Heesen Yachts Interiors, an outfitting company entirely owned by Heesen Yachts. Today only a few shipyards in the world have the capability of building entirely in-house. For Heesen, this is a source of pride and an integral part of its success. 

Ten yachts are currently under construction Heesen Yachts’s facility in Oss, with deliveries that span through 2019.
