The 47 metre motor yacht Celestial Hope, listed for sale by Jonathan Barbe at Edmiston & Company, has been sold with the buyer introduced by Marc Borderon at Peter Insull’s Yacht Marketing.
Designed by Omega Architects, she was built in aluminium to Lloyd's class by Dutch yard Heesen Yachts and delivered in 2008. An elegant, sophisticated interior inspired by the beach houses of the Hamptons accommodates up to 12 guests in six cabins. These consist of a bridge deck master suite, main deck VIP suite, three doubles and a twin, all with state of the art entertainment centres and en-suite bathroom facilities. In addition, there are quarters for nine crew.
The open-plan saloon on the main deck features a soft white lacquer finish on the walls and ceiling, while large settees and armchairs are grouped around a central glass-topped custom coffee table. To starboard is an entertainment centre including a large television screen and a stereo surround sound system. Forward is a bar and a formal dining area seating 12 guests around a custom wooden table.
The aft deck offers built-in upholstered seating and a freestanding set of 10 chairs and a table for al fresco entertaining and dining. The sun deck has port and starboard seating, two tables and a large bar with four bar stools. Further outdoor relaxation space is offered on the foredeck, featuring built-in seating and two dining tables sheltered from the sun by two parasols.
Twin MTU 16V 4000 M90 diesel engines give her a cruising speed of 24 knots.
