The 44m motoryacht, San Bernardo, has been sold with Portuguese brokerage firm Consul Yachts representing the seller and Bill Thiem of Globe Regal Yachting acting on behalf of the buyer. The Heesen build has been sold for a final asking price of €17 million. 

San Bernardo is the seventh hull in the Dutch yard’s 4400 semi-displacement series – a concept introduced in 2003, with the first hull, Sedation, launched in 2007 – and was delivered at its facility in Oss, in 2010.

She is built entirely of aluminium, featuring the exterior and interior design work of Netherlands-based Omega Architects. Thiem suggests that the buyer, on this occasion, was brought by virtue of the construction quality of this series in general and the yachts’ ability to handle all weather conditions.

San Bernardo is able to accommodate 10 guests over five staterooms, comprising a full-beam master cabin on the main deck with an adjoining study, two VIP double cabins on the lower deck and two twin cabins forward. There is also an interchangeable cabin by way of the electrically operated fold down bed in the sky lounge, offering a sixth cabin if required.

This year has been seemingly active for Heesen builds on the re-sale market, but San Bernardo is, in fact, only the third Heesen re-sale of the year, after 55m Serenity in April and 50m Galactica in May. The main activity has been what has come onto the market, with seven second-hand Heesen builds listed for sale so far in 2016.
