Superyacht Lady Petra’s exterior lines are by the renowned Dutch designer Frank Laupman from Omega Architects, while for the interior the Owners chose the award-winning designers, Bannenberg & Rowell, who created a highly sophisticated decor, inspired by Dutch industrial heritage.
Mr and Mrs Frans Heesen, the Owners of luxury yacht Lady Petra commented: “We are truly honoured to have received this prestigious recognition for Lady Petra. My wife and I have built more than 150 yachts for many di erent clients and we had the chance to create our own dream yacht after we retired. This has been tailored around our needs and those of our extended family. We are very grateful to all the people who have worked so strenuously to build this magnifi cent vessel: this award would have not been possible without their contribution!”
The judges must have been impressed with Lady Petra yacht’s unusual and innovative layout. The Owner’s suite is located on the Upper Deck a ording extra privacy, with the space on the main deck forward used instead as a fantastic games room/cinema – ideal when all the grandchildren are on board.
