SEA EAGLE

The contemporary flybridge schooner, SEA EAGLE II, nowadays SEA EAGLE, is a true sailing yacht. This 81m / 266ft  beauty immediately earned her place alongside the shipyard’s Athena in the elite club of the world’s 10 largest sailing yachts. Delivered in 2020 under the shadow of the pandemic, SEA EAGLE II’s arrival on the superyacht scene was inevitably low-key.

Following her extensive world exploration, and with over 45,000 nm under her keel, Royal Huisman is pleased to set matters right and place this magnificent schooner in the spotlight she deserves: please find the article “THE SEA EAGLE SOARS” [link].

SEA EAGLE is currently Royal Huisman’s largest yacht. Project 410, the 85m / 280ft sloop, will take over this title on delivery. Nearly 60 years of aluminum yacht-building experience have provided the shipyard with a level of expertise in constructing hulls of this material that few shipyards can match. This is especially true for sailing yachts of this size. The advantages are equally large: lightness, acceleration, strength and fuel-efficiency being just a few characteristics of a true sailing yacht versus a heavy, sail-assisted motor yacht.

The brief for SEA EAGLE was to create an extremely comfortable and spacious yacht with good sea keeping and exceptional amenities for both guests and crew. She had to offer outstanding passage-making performance so that the owner could take in as much of the world under sail as possible. She had to be a true sailor’s yacht – practical, powerful, safe and easily managed. Finally, she had to be functional, favoring simplicity and reliability over unnecessary frills.

Nilaya

The word “knowledgeable” is often applied to a yacht owner with experience gained from owning a boat or two. Nilaya’s owner far exceeds that description with thousands of sea miles both cruising and racing production and custom yachts. “I have been sailing in dinghies since I was a child,” the owner said. “My first yacht was a Swan 48, followed by several other Swans which I [was] cruising and racing for many years.” With the last 12 years sailing and campaigning the previous Nilaya to many podium finishes, he and his wife had a well-reasoned list of requirements before they entered into discussions with their architects, designers and representative about the next boat.

Noting that their carbon fiber yacht produced a lot of noise and vibration – a motion he calls ‘nervous’ – for new boat, they wanted the lightweight benefits of carbon but sought a quieter package that felt solid and was built to the highest standards. For the new Nilaya, which would be 12m / 42ft longer, he and his wife sought a yacht that could offer their family and guests the opportunity to “explore the world in the utmost comfort and safety, but at the same time could offer an exciting and fast sailing experience.”

Delivered to her owners in June 2023, 47m / 154ft Nilaya spent the summer cruising in the Med and tuning up for racing. With this pause before the St. Barth’s Bucket and with over 10,000nm under her keel, Royal Huisman can shine a spotlight on the yacht that pioneered the shipyard’s comprehensive Featherlight™ approach. Nilaya blends the strength and motion of an aluminum hull with the speed and displacement weights common to carbon fiber maxi yachts. She is destined for global stardom.
