The 44m Heesen build, Sibelle, which is jointly listed for sale with SuperYachtsMonaco and Ocean Independence, has undergone a €1.5 million price reduction and is now for sale at the reduced asking price of €17 million. She is currently based at IMS Shipyard in Toulon and is available for inspection.

Sibelle is the third hull in Heesen’s 4400 series and was launched in April 2008. She was commissioned for a serial Heesen owner who has now launched three yachts from the Dutch shipyard, with the latter being a 50m build, also named Sibelle, which was launched in January 2015.

44m Sibelle

Sibelle is a semi-displacement build that features the exterior work and naval architecture of the Dutch yard and the interior styling of Omega Architects and the owner’s architect, Michael Labazov. She is able to accommodate 10 guests over five staterooms. The owner’s suite and office are on the main deck, whilst the two VIP staterooms and two twins are on the lower deck – all of which have en suite facilities.  

She has only been operated under private use with her main usage concentrated to the summer. As such, her engine hours are very low (2,050 hours c. August 2015) and the crew – who have been with the build since its delivery – have ensured an effective maintenance plan in conjunction with the owner’s, which is to constantly upgrade and maintain with no expense spared. She recently completed a soft refit and winter works to ensure prime condition for re-sale.

From the 40m+ Heesen builds with a delivery date of 2007 or later that have been re-sold since the start of 2015, the average selling price/final asking price is €23.63 million. Comparatively, from the 40-50m Heesen builds – also with delivery dates of 2007 or later – that are currently on the market, the average asking price is €24.8 million. This shows that Sibelle’s pricing – in conjunction with her thorough maintenance plan – makes her an excellent deal for any buyer.
