Heesen Launches 50-meter Superyacht "Sibelle"

Dutch superyacht builder Heesen has a yacht in the final stages of build under the build number YN16750 for launch in 2015. According to Marine Traffic it appears as though this yacht was recently launched with the AIS carrying the name "Sibelle".

 If it sounds familiar to you, then you would remember that Heesen built a 44-meter megayacht back in 2008 with the same name, which coincidentally is currently for sale. The new yacht has a very special design, a bit different to what Heesen normally does. First, there is a straight bow and long fore deck. The foredeck, according to renderings is to be the home of the vessel's two main tenders. As for the design, Omega Architects penned the styling lines of Sibelle while AB Studios did the interior design work. Accommodation appears to be for guests in five cabins. Four are on the lower deck and include two VIPs and two twins while the owner has their expansive master suite one deck above on the forward main deck. The yacht features a nearly 30-foot beam surely comfortable enough to enjoy. Sibelle will also be able to sprint if necessary with an anticipated top speed of 18.5-knots thanks to her twin MTU 8V 4000 M63Ls. She complies with MCA and ABS. With the yacht's tenders being stored up front on the lengthy foredeck, it releases the aft transom to be a fully dedicated Beachclub without interference from tender operations. Heesen has not yet commented on the launch of Sibelle.
