It is was an absolute joy to see owners having fun...
…onboard a nice selection of various, large sailing yachts during the recent regattas in New Zealand in parallel with the very exciting America’s Cup matches. Royal Huisman is a proud sponsor of both the Mastercard Superyacht Regatta and the NZ Millennium Cup.
And even though the shipyard team could be present in person due to COVID travel restrictions, it was trilling to be involved with this very encouraging start to the new sailing year! Just like us we trust you will enjoy watching this selection of photos of thoroughbreds from this year’s first superyacht regattas:
Sassafras’ result after three races at the New Zealand Millennium Cup: third overall. Royal Huisman’s thoroughbreds Sassafras and Whirlwind XII signed up for both events. The latter being the shipyard’s first superyacht: delivered in 1986. Since her launch 35 years ago a total of 33 very unique yachts over 30m / 100ft have been built by Royal Huisman: each embracing the shipyard’s spirit of individuality.
“Having been involved with most other superyacht regattas globally, I can honestly say that the NZ Millenium Cup was the most enjoyable event I’ve ever done. The organization of the racing was second to none. We thoroughly look forward to taking part again.” Captain Tim Michalick of Sassafras.
