Living a life of luxury and pleasure is what most people only dream of. The epitome of this lifestyle may be cruising the seas on a superyacht. These yachts are incredible vessels that feature unparalleled comfort, entertainment, recreation options, and style. When purchasing a superyacht, one of the most important considerations is the brand. A brand with an excellent reputation is far more likely to produce a high quality ship. One such brand is Heesen, a Dutch shipyard that is held in high regard in the industry. It was founded in 1978 by Frans Heesen, and has produced over 170 yachts thus far.
Its award-winning ships are known for their incredible design and high quality. They are custom-built to suit the needs and tastes of their owners. The Sibelle is a yacht produced by Heesen that also fits this description. It is a stylish and sleek yacht that also features an incredible performance in the water and spacious interior.
Heesen has a great deal of experience building yachts that are a wide range of sizes. The Sibelle is a mid-range yacht at 44 meters. It was constructed in 2008 and was recently refitted, ensuring that its quality and construction are up to date. The ship is geared towards high performance cruising, and therefore features an all-aluminum build.
This yacht is renowned for its incredible design. The striking exterior was designed by Heesen, while the lavish interior was provided by Omega Architects. This yacht has a unique juxtaposition of styles. Its exterior is sporty and dynamic, while its interior offers all of the comfort and luxury that one would associate with a superyacht.
The ship is able to offer its incredible accommodations to 10 passengers. There are 5 guest cabins which are spacious and stylish to choose from. In addition, there are quarters for up to 9 crew members. This is a superyacht that refuses to compromise luxury for style. It features a sporty look and performance while maintaining the luxury that Heesen yachts are famous for.
Accommodations and Comfort
Guests can look forward not only to the beautiful sights of their cruise, but also to amazingly comfortable accommodations while aboard the Sibelle. There are 5 cabins to choose from, each of which is incredibly luxurious. There is one large Master Suite, a VIP Stateroom, and 3 Guest Staterooms. In sum, these cabins provide excellent accommodations for up to 10 guests. The crew quarters can accommodate 9, which will ensure the finest cruise experience.
The Master Suite is the highlight of the ship’s accommodations. Located on the main deck, it is incredibly expansive. Although it is very spacious, it also features a warm and inviting design. Further, it boasts additional features like en suite facilities.
For enjoying the yacht outside of the bedroom, the Sibelle offers an incredible range of lounge areas. The Main Salon in particular is expansive and intelligently designed. As well, the Sky Lounge is another lounging area that is highly versatile, easily transitioning from a games room to a media center. There is ample seating throughout the ship, and its generous use of windows ensure plenty of natural lighting.
For eating, passengers will enjoy the sumptuous 5-star meals prepared by a world-class chef. There are several options both for interior dining and al fresco dining.
In addition, the ship is specifically designed to maximize external deck space. There are a great deal of options for enjoying the sun. Most notably, the Sundeck offers several sunpads as well as a forward seating area for lounging with friends or family.
The ship’s interior is highlighted not only by its incredible and thoughtful layout, but also by the luxurious materials used in its construction. The soft colors make the Sibelle’s interior warm and inviting, while its light woods add an air of sophistication. Perhaps most notably, the lounging areas feature a design that focuses on gentle curves, which adds a unique feel to the room while maximizing space.
Cruising on the water in style is excellent, but to fully enjoy a superyacht, it must offer more than comfortable accommodations. The Sibelle recognizes this, and includes a wide variety of entertainment features. For starters, the ship offers lightning fast Wi-Fi for streaming videos and music or connecting with friends and family.
As well, watching movies and shows is a great experience on the Sibelle. This is because it offers plenty of HD televisions to choose from. For group viewing, passengers will be sure to enjoy the 46-inch LCD TV. However, there are also 4 32-inch LCD TVs with DVD players located throughout the ship for additional pleasure.
Further, the yacht is perfect for throwing parties. In addition to the TVs, the ship includes a BeoSound 3 sound system with remote speakers. The entire ship can be transformed into a hub of fun and excitement for family and friends.
While excellent accommodations and superior entertainment options may be enough for some yachts, superyachts like the Sibelle also offer a plethora of recreation and leisure options. This ship ensures that passengers will have just as much fun playing in the sunshine and water as they will aboard the ship.
The recreational options are highlighted by the powerful and versatile tender that is included. The yacht includes a Novurania Custom Volvo tender that will suit a wide variety of purposes. Further, the ship boasts a wide range of water toys.
For leisure, the yacht ensures that passengers will have an unforgettable and relaxing experience while aboard the Sibelle. The leisure experience is highlighted by the ship’s beach club. Among other options, this beach club offers its own sauna.
