The sale negotiations were ably assisted by Regional Liaison Bart J. Kimman, who merged the interests of client and shipyard to help bring this exciting project to fruition. With this important foothold in the region, Royal Huisman continues to build a following among well-informed and aspirational business leaders in South East Asia, and is optimistic there will more interest from the region in the future.
…where the shipyard has been a regular participant in events such as the Hainan Rendezvous, the Singapore Yacht Show and the Asia Superyacht Rendezvous, as well as dinners and presentations for select audiences in Beijing, Hong Kong and Singapore.
“…this opportunity allows the yard to demonstrate around the world
what the brand represents: the pinnacle of Dutch quality
and the clear distinction between ‘what looks good’
and ‘what seriously is good’ in superyacht building…”
Reinforcing his trust in the shipyard, SEA EAGLE’s owner, Dr. Samuel Yin, has offered his full support by making his yacht available for presentations at the Monaco Yacht Show and various yachting events including his home waters in South East Asia. Viewed by Royal Huisman as a huge honour, this opportunity allows the yard to demonstrate around the world what the brand represents: the pinnacle of Dutch quality and the clear distinction between ‘what looks good’ and ‘what seriously is good’ in superyacht building.
Besides being an experienced offshore sailor, Dr. Yin is a prominent Taiwanese businessman and philanthropist (link). He believes passionately that education is the driver of social progress and that we should give back to society by sharing what we know with others. In other words, that life should not be measured by wealth, but by our contributions to others by providing them with greater access to knowledge.
This philosophy extends to his appreciation of sailing: “Sailing is a very special activity”, says Dr. Yin. “You can enjoy being relaxed on the sea or experience different scenery, you can be alone or witness things you’ve never seen before. It is the same as in life: it might not always be smooth sailing and there will be ups and downs. Nonetheless, as with life, it is very rewarding.”
