Edmiston has announced the sale of the 47-metre superyacht Celestial Hope. Marc Borderon from Peter Insulls brought in the buyer, with broker Jonathan Barbe acting on behalf of the seller.
Built by Dutch yard Heesen, the aluminium semi-displacement motor yacht was launched in December 2008 under the name Project 14247. Featuring an exterior design from Omega Architects and an interior design by Kamini Ezralow from Intarya Yachts, Celestial Hope is the second yacht from Heesen’s high-speed, semi-displacement series.

The main saloon offers plenty of room for dining and socialising, while an addition lounging area located forward on the main deck can serve as the backdrop from more cosy gatherings. Stand out features on board include a jacuzzi on the sun deck, a large swimming platform and a steam room.

The master suite, located on the upper deck, offers separate entrances for his and her dressing rooms, while the VIP cabin, located to the starboard side forward on the main deck, features an ensuite marble bathroom.
