Video: RARE OPPORTUNITY - Most superyachts from the Royal Huisman fleet are for private use only and are enjoyed ‘to the max’. Only very few come up looking for a new Owner like the timeless classic 51m / 166ft schooner BORKUMRIFF IV or the contemporary 58m / 190ft high-performance sloop NGONI.

At the dedicated section of the Royal Huisman website you can find an overview of the very few pedigree yachts, which
are occasionally available for charter and an equally small number looking for a new Owner: www.royalhuisman.com > yachts > for sale & charter

SCOOP OF PHI’S INNOVATIVE LASER EXTERIOR LIGHTING - Currently the team of Royal Huisman’s project 403 is fully focused on the outfitting and finishing touches, to be ready for her “unwrapping” and launch in a few months’ time. PHI’s scale model scoops one of the various onboard innovations: the exterior accent lighting powered by lasers.
.
“Such lighting usually relies on LEDs, but when they fail, they leave unsightly gaps,” wrote Justin Ratcliffe after his visit for Superyacht Times. “PHI’s system comprises over 1,500 metres of optical fibres that are evenly illuminated by lasers.”
.
In summary: a spectacular, head-turning effect to highlight PHI’s stunning design and maintenance friendly. This innovative exterior laser lighting is jointly developed by Royal Huisman and Fibr8.com for PHI’s unique superyacht application.
.
PHI: 58.5m / 192ft < 500 GT motoryacht. Learn more about PHI? www.royalhuisman.com

"Today’s client is tomorrow’s Ambassador" is an understanding that the entire Royal Huisman team is very much aware of. This is why we continuously strive for uncompromised quality – to serve our clients, and to remain loyal of that discerning Royal accolade that has recognized our tradition of excellence since 1884. Equally important to us is that we are perceived as the company with the open, honest and committed team culture.

.

Last but not least, it matters greatly to us that our long term after sales care continuously supports the crews onboard the growing worldwide fleet of Royal Huisman and Huisfit yachts. In this way we ensure that each yacht can be enjoyed “to the max” by Owners, families and friends during the opportunities for quality time onboard.

“For myself and the crew, working with skilled builders – a number of which were involved in the build of Ethereal – is a wonderful experience. The management is well organized and responsive and of good service” explains Peter Grubb, captain of Ethereal about Huisfit in Amsterdam.
.
Ethereal, the world’s first hybrid superyacht, is a fine example of several more yachts which have come to Royal Huisman’s safe haven. Captain Peter Grubb continues: “Our shoreside requirements have been met in a ‘one-stop-shopping fashion’. […] Ethereal is benefiting greatly from this downtime spent at her makers, and in the good hands of the team at Huisfit, as we prepare for a summer of cruising and more far flung adventures , if COVID will allow.”

Royal Huisman innovation: redundant azimuthing electric propulsion units with direct connected permanent magnet motors and fixed pitch, pulling propellers for optimized efficiency.

WHAT GOES DOWN, MUST COME UP ! - Retractable electric drive propulsion will offer lots of advantages for everyone onboard the 59.7m / 196ft high-performance Malcolm McKeon sloop, which is currently under construction at the shipyard headquarters in Vollenhove. Gregory Monks, the Owners’ representative of Project 404, explains “Why?”. Learn and see more on page 04 and 05 of the spring edition of “inhuis” at www.royalhuisman.com > News > Inhuis

Royal Huisman Project 405’s hull construction started at the end of last year and is progressing well. The structure of the “Reichel/Pugh - Nauta 151” is based on a new, innovative method developed by the shipyard, to ensure that the 46m high-performance cruiser sloop is extremely lightweight and very competitive in regattas compared to existing carbon composite superyachts. Royal Huisman’s latest innovation – featherlight – is based on the optimal use of the materials that the shipyard team knows so well.
.
The general concept and exterior layout by Nauta Design features various welcoming and functional guest social areas. The foredeck features a partially recessed carbon bay for the guest tender. The area cleverly converts into a cozy cockpit. Read and see more in the spring edition of “inhuis” at www.royalhuisman.com > News > Inhuis

FEATHERLIGHT - BEST OF BOTH WORLDS: PERFORMANCE AND COMFORT - When you would like to know more about ‘featherlight’ please contact the team at Royal Huisman for a tailor made presentation.

The team of Royal Huisman and @huisfit congratulates King Willem-Alexander of The Netherlands on his 54th birthday and a happy King’s Day to all!
.
THE PERFECT COMBINATION: Royal Huisman & The Netherlands. King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima – for many, the perfect combination of traditional royal lineage with the modern world. Their accession in 2013 followed the abdication of the much-respected Queen Beatrix who, in 1984, bestowed the “Royal” title upon the Huisman shipyard. An accolade that has to be earned rather than automatically given, the Royal title was awarded in recognition of 100 years of quality and excellence – a tradition that continues to this day.
