104' Heesen Motor Yacht LADY ARLENE
Brokers comments and overview
The 104' Heesen Motor Yacht LADY ARLENE is one of the most impressive Motor Yachts built by the pedigree Dutch builder christened in 1988 and completely refitted in 2012/2013 with continuous upgrades since. The exterior of Lady Arlene is very modern and stylish with a timeless interior making it a perfect entry level pedigree yacht for any discerning owner at a fraction of replacement cost.
Walking onto the yacht from the stern, there are 2 stairways on each side of the garage of the Euro transom. The first impression is that you see a huge alfresco dining table which can easily accommodate 10 people for formal or informal dining.
Moving forward into the salon through automatic oval sliding glass doors you immediately notice the flooring, this unique floor was installed by the original owner and is original oak wood from a 15th century French church (papers to verify). On the port side is a credenza with a hidden 42 inch television behind the picture frame, under the picture is a wine cooler and liquor storage, to the starboard is glass storage in a similar Credenza.
There is a walkway going forward to the galley passing the huge round dining table which comfortably seats 8-10 guests. The salon itself is very comfortable and airy with 10 large windows with electric blackout shades and curtains for indirect lighting if needed. In all the surrounding salon areas are Burl Maple cabinets stored with many variations of flatware for different dinning occasions.
Moving forward past a stairway to the lower guest quarters and the stairs to the raised pilothouse is an "on deck" day head just behind the galley. Entering the galley you will notice the commercial appliances normally seen in restaurants. The galley features 3 huge standup refrigerator units that can be either freezers or refrigerators, this refrigeration system is found only on the world's best built yachts. More commercial appliances including grill and deep fryer in the galley are made of stainless steel.
In the foyer directly as you come in from the starboard exterior door is the stairway down to the guest quarters.
As you enter the master stateroom you notice the theme of the cabin is round. There is a huge round bed, larger than king size bed positioned in the center of the cabin. In front of the bed is a decorative pole. Burl maple wardrobes face the bed and there is a large vanity and make up area to the port and comfortable seating to the starboard in a rich cream leather. There is a safe in the master along with a discreet 15 inch Sat TV and stereo system with surround sounds. There are 2 port lights either side with storm shutters. The bathroom is located behind the bed with entrances on either side of the cabin. There is a full size bath to the starboard and a large steam shower to the port with 2 sinks centered in the bathroom. All of the fixtures are marble, including the floor.
In the forward area of the lower deck is a full beam VIP. There is a king size bed fitted to the port side and huge marble shower in the bathroom to starboard. SAT TV with 15 inch Samsung LCD TV. Plenty of storage below bed and hanging locker to starboard. There is an emergency escape hatch in the forward bulkhead concealed by a painting.
Guest Cabins 3 and 4
Located aft of the VIP are two identical staterooms, both with side by side bunks the only difference is that the port cabin has an additional pullman bunk on the inboard side. The bathrooms are located behind the aft bulkheads and both have large showers, toilets and bidets. All finishes are in natural stone and marble.
The unique layout of Lady Arlene was designed to operate with a minimal crew of no more than four. In order to maximize the owner's accommodations and recreational areas the crew quarters are conveniently located under the galley floor and a Bomar style Hatch on the foredeck drops into the crew quarters also. The galley becomes a designated crew area which allows the complete privacy of the owners in other areas of the yacht.
There are two side entry doors one from the crew galley area and one from the salon starboard side which allows you to go to the fore and aft deck.
Walking up some stairs from the companionway on the starboard side is the raised pilot house. To the port side of the helm is a very large navigation station, behind the station is a troll storage, this with all of the ships maintenance and technical manuals stored underneath. Because KVH receivers and CCTV and ISIS ships monitoring system alarm system all located in this area. The ships controls are to the starboard of the helm and behind the helm is an observation area for passengers. There is good visibility forward, to port and starboard and for quick access to the flybridge there's a stairway with an automatic sliding glass door.
