Book Ends – the 13th sister ship in the newly restyled 47-metre class designed by Frank Laupman at Omega Architects – is a striking, individual yacht. Her well-engineered displacement steel hull with bulbous bow provides smooth and safe cruising in all sea conditions, while her classic contemporary 499GT design delivers finesse and sophistication inside and out.
With a top speed of 15 knots, and a transatlantic range of 4,000 nautical miles at 12 knots, she has proven to be ideal for cruising in the Mediterranean, as well as basking in select areas of the Bahamas; something of a pre-requisite for her highly experienced owners. Seeking a yacht with greater stability and range than their previous vessel, the owners appreciate the consistency of Heesen’s proven 47-metre platform and have found it to be the perfect fit for their needs.
