Facebook decides on Heesen project names

Ruya Heesen

Heesen Yachts have used a Facebook campaign to find names for their latest projects – 17947 and 17850. The projects are now called RUYA and NOVA respectively.

For the 17947, Mr. C. Bell of Ruya Marine Support proposed the name ‘Ruya’ which translates to “vision” in Arabic and to “dream” in Turkish.

Project RUYA is a new 47 metre (154 ft) steel displacement yacht with the interior designed by Bannenberg & Rowell Design. She is a sister-ship to Lady Petra and Elena, who has recently been nominated for Best Worldwide Semi Custom Built Yacht 2015 for the World SuperYacht Awards 2015.

For the 17850, Facebook user Ms. Lenderink proposed NOVA. She is being thanked with an invitation to Monaco Yacht Show 2015 on behalf of Heesen.

Projects RUYA and NOVA will be ready for delivery in Spring 2017 along with Projects ALBA and ALIDA.

Heesen delivered 50 metre Sibelle and 50 metre Asya last month.  They are also scheduled to deliver 50 mere Ann G, and 55 metre Azamanta in July later this year.
