Sibelle’s simple complexity

The name is Sibelle and it’s Heesen Yachts’ latest creation. On March the 20th it was delivered to the shipowner.



50 meters long, Sibelle, (the second yacht from Heesen Yachts to carry this name after a 44 meters launched in 2008) completed the sea trials on February the 17th, meeting the demanding conditions with wind force 4-5. Conditions that the yacht successfully passed through the brilliant hull ideated and designed by the naval architect Perry van Oossanen: the Fast Displacement Hull Form.

The exterior design of Sibelle carries the signature of Frank Laupman from the Omega Architects studio with the collaboration of Mikhail Labazov and Andrei Savin from Architectural Bureau AB Studio. This collaboration has led to a “complex simplicity”, an oxymoron that perfectly illustrates the philosophy behind the project that finds its main characteristics in the large and enveloping sections in crystal.

For Mark Cavendish, marketing manager of Heesen Yachts, “Sibelle exemplifies the ability of Heesen to create a fully customized yacht that reflects the client’s individuality. We help our shipowners to create their yacht and we provide them the highest standards of engineering that we developed in over 35 years of experience.”
