SPECIAL ONE

The world’s largest true sportfish yacht, Special One, is an exceptional Alustar® aluminum motor yacht that represents, without compromise, the pinnacle of custom superyacht engineering and construction. She features six decks of the highest standards of luxury and comfort, combined with technological advancements and a performance to sail at 30+ knots during extensive testing and trials on the North Sea.

Special One is a unique vessel in many respects. She is tailored to meet the specific brief of her experienced owner, who has a deep passion for sportfishing. The design is extremely distinctive, with a long bow and high bulwarks sweeping through a clear sheer to a low and uncluttered cockpit aft. The high tower offers outstanding views with a downward angle on the water for specialized fishing. Apart from its practical function, the tower also offers a superb viewing platform for guests, who can follow all the action below.

Special One will be presented by Royal Huisman at the Monaco Yacht Show 2024. This sportfish superyacht underscores the shipyard’s position at the forefront of the superyacht sector, continually pushing the boundaries of what is possible.
