American owner renames latest super yacht Project Ruya as Book Ends
Redefining yacht designs
Project Ruya from Heesen Yachts finally sees completion after a construction period of over 2 years. Measuring almost 50m in length, it has been handed over to its American owner. However, “Book Ends” is the new name of this latest super yacht as told by its owner. “Book Ends” is all set to hit the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show of 2017; prior to that, it will be setting for a long voyage in the Mediterranean.
Twin MTU 8V engines of the 400 series make their way to the heart of this vessel. They generate impressive power figures of 1,341 HP and provide Book Ends with a cruising range of 4,000 nautical miles. Top speed of this vessel will clock around the 16 knots mark while 12 knots is set as its standard maritime velocity.
This yacht design is a steel hull and aluminum superstructure by all means. It includes a bulbous bow which provides maximum comfort cruising stability in all sea conditions, courtesy to its zero-speed stabilizers.
Book Ends comes with a stern garage that provides ample space for storing a Yamla Wave Runner measuring 3m in length. Ease of access to the waters comes through a large swim platform.
Mark Cavendish of Heesen claims, “We have made use of every tweak and designing strategies to carve out the maximum interior space from Book Ends. The upper deck is a prosperous example in this venture. ”
This vessel can accommodate a total of 12 guests in its 6 cabins. This also includes a VIP cabin that comes with a private terrace and seating lounge. Private Jacuzzis and Al-fresco dining centers will also come as standard in this yacht’s design.
As of now, no news of charter is available regarding this latest super yacht. However, enthusiasts can keep their hopes alive as such possibilities are soon to emerge in the near future.
