Sailing yacht Adèle returns
Huisfit is pleased to announce that the Owner of the 55m / 180ft classic ketch Adèle (Vitters, 2005) appointed Huisfit for excessive refit and service work including her 15 year survey later this year. Previously she received a successful refit and class survey in 2016 at Huisfit, the foundation was laid for a long term relation with the great team of S/Y Adèle.
And why Huisfit again? Project manager Taco Zwarts, who is representing the Owners explains their decision to return in 2021: “After the previous successful refit by Huisfit, it was clear and very obvious for us. In a nutshell: The Huisfit team is honest and the cooperation is smooth; the technical updates were well executed and of high quality […] Also, since that moment the shipyard’s service team supported us worldwide whenever needed.”
Electric propulsion onboard Royal Huisman project 404
Juliet’s conversion coincides with the construction of a new 59.7m / 196ft high-performance sloop, currently being built at the shipyard headquarters. Royal Huisman project 404 will have retractable, azimuthing electric propulsion units, which will offer a number of similar advantages for everyone onboard.
