Sichterman launched the first Libertas 15M and the Felicitatem 20M at his shipyard in Workum, Netherlands. With these aluminum yachts, the Dutch boutique yacht builder adds two boats to his fleet after the launch of the Inveni 18M in May 2019.
Like the Inveni 18M, the Libertas and the Felicitatem are the results of the collaboration between designer Cor D. Rover, naval architect Van Oossanen, and yacht builder Workumer Yachtservice.
The shipyard was able to complete the construction of the Libertas in just 7 months and the Felicitatem in 9 months, planning in detail both the construction and the interior design.
The Libertas 15M is a versatile yacht designed for long cruises, as well as being a good tender for superyacht owners. What sets this yacht apart is the timeless design and the fast planing hull designed by Van Oossanen. The top speed is 40 knots with 2x Volvo Penta IPS 950 and Seakeeper technology that eliminates the roll of the boat up to 95%. Libertas can accommodate up to a maximum of 14 people.
The “Fantastic Eclectic” interior, which represents one of three styles, offers the perfect balance between classic and contemporary design.
The Felicitatem boasts a fast displacement hull always signed Van Oossanen, as well as the Seakeeper technology. The result is fuel savings of up to 20%.
The “Sporty Elegance” style of the interior shows elegant lines that flow into dynamic details, taken from the world of sports cars. The interior has a Mediterranean style, inspired by the aesthetics of Southern European countries.
The Felicitatem has three sunbeds, a Sonos entertainment system, and an air-conditioned lounge with underfloor heating. Up to six guests can stay overnight in two double bedrooms and a cabin with two single beds.
Privacy is ensured by a flybridge with a wheelhouse and a separate cabin for the captain.
Both yachts are ready for transport to the south of France and will leave the yard this month. The Yacht Club of Monaco’s private event, where the yachts would be officially presented, has been canceled. However, both yachts are available for charter and sale.
