Since the year 1978 Heesen Yachts, located in the Netherlands, have been creating luxurious sailing vessels built for both comfort and performance. The S. Bernardo, or San Bernardo, is the very latest in a series of 4400 semi custom built motor yachts and represents one of the yacht builder’s most popular models thanks to its sleek lines, elegant styling, and luxurious interior.
The San Bernardo was a collaborative effort between Heesen Yachts and Frank Laupman of Omega Architects, who was responsible for the hull’s gorgeous interior as well as its exterior styling.
The rather impressive layout of the S. Bernardo maximizes the outdoor living space allowing guests the chance to socialize and relax in four different areas which include the main deck with its spacious cockpit aft, a more intimately designed forward cockpit area, an aft cockpit located on the upper deck along with the yacht’s sky lounge, and finally, aloft, there is a vast fly bridge. On the fly bridge guests will find a circular shaped Jacuzzi spa as well as an al fresco dining area capable of seating up to 10 people.
This motor yacht will be able to accommodate up to 10 guests at a time and will be run by a crew of eight members, and through Select Charter Services, the S. Bernardo will be available for charter trips.
Equipped with the very latest in anti-roll zero speed stabilization systems, the semi displacement San Bernardo motor yacht will feature dual engines and a maximum cruising speed of up to 26 knots offering her guests an incredible, memorable experience sailing through the open waters.
