The APEX 850’s aluminium hull is immensely strong and resilient – lighter than steel, quieter than carbon and virtually corrosion-free. The powerful hull sections are complemented by twin carbon rudders and an 8.5 m – 5.0 m / 28 ft – 16 ft retractable keel for balance and stability as well as access to shallower harbours. Submarine anchors retract to fit perfectly into the contours of the hull.

The immensely powerful rig features a carbon mast and furling boom with continuous carbon rigging to support 3200 m² / 34,444 ft2 of upwind sail area (main and blade) and 4700 m2 / 50,590 ft2 downwind (main and code sail). The wind’s motive power is efficiently harnessed and managed by Rondal’s Integrated Sailing System, with captive winches pulling up to 48 tonnes and controlled by advanced push-button technologies. Royal Huisman and sister company Rondal have unrivalled expertise in sail management systems for mega sailing yachts.
