New Model: Heesen 50m YN 16750

Heesen Yachts is proud to announce that on March 20th, 2015 M/Y Sibelle was delivered to her owner.  This latest Heesen hull number YN16750 is a 50-metre fully custom motor yacht, below 500 gross tonnage with an aluminum hull and superstructure.  The sea trials took place in the North Sea on February 13 and 17, 2015 in waves ranging between half to one meter in a fresh to strong wind. YN 16750 exceeded the contractual speed and proved to be extremely maneuverable and very quiet. The design of M/Y Sibelle proves that high speed cruising can be achieved without sacrificing either luxury or efficiency.  YN 16750 exterior lines are by Frank Laupman from Omega architects, assisted in the refinement of the design details by Mikhail Labazov and Andrei Savin from Architectural Bureau A-B Studio. The complex simplicity oxymoron epitomizes in two words the philosophy that led the design team in the development of this project. Elegant exterior lines are emphasized by contrasting bands of wraparound glass that give her a very distinctive look. The exterior lines look like they are running parallel, but in reality they are not! It is all about small adjustments that give an impression of parallelism to the eye.
