On the day in that Frans Heesen, owner and founder of Heesen Yachts, announced his retirement, he took delivery of 47m (154ft) Lady Petra, which the yard began to build in 2010.

"It is time for me to enjoy life with my family and friends," says Frans Heesen. "I am going to be the brand ambassador of this wonderful company that I founded 35 years ago. I will always be there to support the brand and to promote it until the end of my days." 


Bannenberg and Rowell Design provided Lady Petra's interior look, while Omega Architects designed the naval architecture.
