“Build me a beast. Don’t build me a wolf in sheep’s clothing.” Yacht building folklore may now have one of the most quotable owner’s requests of all time. “Exciting”, “Radical”, “Edgy”, “Stunning”: these are the kind of words that greeted the 58m / 190ft high-performance sloop Ngoni throughout the Mediterranean in summer 2017.
Designed by Dubois Naval Architects and featuring an innovative interior by Rick Baker Ltd, Ngoni is luxurious as well as “fast and furious” – the product of bold and minimalist design realised with impeccable build quality by Royal Huisman. Ngoni’s sleek and beautifully executed exterior conceals a host of innovative engineering to meet the challenges of marrying a huge, powerful and advanced rig with a slender and easily-driven hull.
