Articles Step On Board SIBELLE: An Award-Winning Yacht Ready To Impress A New Owner

What makes SIBELLE so special? There’s really no magic; it is merely exquisite attention to detail and cutting-edge technology coming together to produce a yacht greater than the sum of its parts.

To both Heesen and the wider yachting community, SIBELLE has proven to be an immensely impressive design. Created well before vertical bows and fast-displacement hulls became de rigueur, SIBELLE burst into the yachting world, setting a new standard for build quality, performance, and design. Her expressive form and sleek stance mean that, although she was launched eight years ago, she looks every part the futuristic masterpiece she did in 2015.

The brainchild of a collaboration between Omega Architects, AB Studios, and Heesen, it is no wonder SIBELLE has multiple prestigious awards to her name. The ShowBoats Design Awards 2016, World Superyacht Awards 2016, and Most Innovative Yacht at the World Yacht Trophies 2015, to name a few.

Evocative without being nostalgic, she showcases cutting-edge construction techniques—and that the Dutch shipyard can deliver a fuel-efficient yacht with impressive performance, and just as much style as you would expect from a sensuous Dutch-built superyacht.

With this in mind, you won’t blame us for choosing SIBELLE as the latest feature in our yacht walkthrough series. Watch the film and let Ocean Independence Yacht Broker, Adrian Soos, uncover all the details of this stunning yacht.


SIBELLE’s exterior is a showcase of thoughtful styling cues and engineering precision. Her understated yet distinct look is highlighted by bands of wraparound glass, which add a unique, modern touch. This design feature cleverly plays with perception, creating an illusion of parallel lines that are, in reality, subtly angled for aesthetic impact.

As a 50-metre fully custom motor yacht, SIBELLE strikes a careful balance between size and functionality. Her aluminium hull and superstructure ensure robustness while remaining below the 500 gross tonne mark.

With a range of 3,150 nautical miles, she is more than capable of crossing oceans, yet her size remains within a comfortable scale. This basic design philosophy affords her Owner the versatility to access smaller bays, effortlessly delivering the best of both worlds.

While she boasts a range to rival a fully-fledged expedition yacht, her 237 square metres of outdoor space provides plenty of elbow room for decadent alfresco living. The teak panelled decks and open-plan outdoor areas embody a light, airy ambiance, inviting guests relax and enjoy their surroundings, while the intimate beach club, a sublime venue for a dip in the sea or starlit supper, is truly the cherry on top.

Beyond her aesthetic appeal, SIBELLE is a powerhouse of performance. Equipped with twin diesel MTU 8-cylinder engines, and Fast Displacement Hull Form, she can reach a maximum speed of 18.5 knots and cruises comfortably at 15 knots.

Her durable aluminium hull and superstructure make her particularly hard-wearing for more rugged adventures, with her advanced hydraulic powered mooring and thruster systems ensuring smooth manoeuvrability under any circumstances.

The yacht’s generators have also been upgraded to 120KW engines with electrical windings. These generators, fitted with hydrogen injection systems, ensure clean and efficient operation, reducing her running emissions, and aligning with contemporary sustainable cruising.

Stepping inside SIBELLE, one is greeted by an atmosphere characterised by neutral colour themes, wood panelling, and minimalist architecture, exuding a sense of understated sophistication. This serene environment provides the perfect setting for modern yacht enthusiasts seeking a timeless and luxurious experience.

The yacht’s enormous beach club and wellness centre, with direct access to the sauna, offers a tranquil haven for guests to rejuvenate and reconnect. A testament to the yacht’s thoughtful design that caters to every aspect of the guest experience.

Accommodation is as impressive and well thought out as you would expect. She can host up to ten guests in her five staterooms, including a 61 square metre master suite with dual dressing rooms and private en suite bathrooms. The three VIP cabins and one twin are crafted with the same attention to luxury and comfort, ensuring a sumptuous stay for all on board.


Maintained impeccably by a fastidious Owner from new, and exclusively operated as a private vessel, she stands in pristine condition. VAT paid, and never chartered, SIBELLE is ready to deliver luxury and exclusivity for her new Owner. For those who appreciate the pinnacle of yachting excellence, SIBELLE is a rare opportunity to own a yacht renowned for stylish, forward-thinking design, and quality craftsmanship.
