The newly launched 154-foot (47-meter) Lady Petra is the eighth to be delivered in Heesen’s award-winning 47m class. It was built for Frans Heesen, the founder of Heesen Yachts who previously had a 144-foot Heesen called My Petra. Bannenberg & Rowell did the interior design. The challenge of working with a shipyard owner turned yacht owner was a welcome challenge, according to Dickie Bannenberg, who said he had a very enjoyable time working with the family. Inspiration came from various places such as 20th-century industrial Dutch design, optical geometric studies and configurations inspired by industrial shapes such as formers and frames. Frank Laupman of Omega Architects, who has worked with Heesen for 20 years, is particularly proud of this yacht. Aboard Lady Petra, the owner’s suite is on the upper deck away from the other accommodations, so that the younger part of the family can have their media and games room forward on the main deck.
