Heesen Yachts has announced that it will launch a new 50-meter motor yacht, named Sibelle, at the end of February. Although the company plans further extensive testing in the North Sea, it expects to deliver Sibelle to her owner on time.
Heesen Yachts worked closely with Sibelle's owner to achieve a unique design that maximizes comfort and efficiency. The owner, who has plenty of experience traveling the world by yacht, wanted to avoid a Fast Displacement Hull Form, replacing it with a plumb bow. This offered a challenge for Heesen. After numerous studies, the shipyard created a plumb bow that ensure Sibelle will stay on course while offering greater comfort and performance, even in high wave conditions.
The improved design also helped Heesen make Sibelle a highly efficient vessel can cross the Atlantic Ocean with only 45,000 liters of fuel. She has a maximum speed of 18.5 knots.
On board, Heesen built a 61-square meter master suite. The suite has two dressing rooms and two ensuite bathrooms. Sibelle also has four guest cabins. In total, she can comfortably carry 10 guests.
Sibelle's expansive outdoor living spaces give guests the opportunity to enjoy everything that seat travel offers. The outdoor spaces become even larger when the two tenders are placed in the water, revealing a party space where guests can socialize with a full view of the ocean's beauty.
Sibelle's owner wanted to keep her design as simple as possible. Heesen has met this demand with gusto. She has an elegant shape, efficient technology, and uncompromising aesthetic that should serve her owner's needs for decades to come.
