Sailing provides the perfect platform for those with a spirit of adventure, offering them lifestyle rewards few non-sailors can imagine, let alone experience. There can be no better means of enjoying these ocean experiences than aboard a fine custom sailing superyacht.
.
But, for those truly addicted to sailing, there are other sailing activities to savour that offer many of the same thrills and rewards. Taking a different tack: sailing the air, ice or the sand. Read on at royalhuisman.com > news > inhuis stories & updates

In fact there is a glider club in Vollenhove, a few minutes from Royal Huisman, yet another leisure opportunity for owners and their teams spending time here on their projects.

Royal Huisman Project 406: THE STAGE IS SET. Installation of the ‘Big Fisher’ superstructure prepares the scene for the ‘theatre of the ocean’. Monday 20th June saw the completion of another major step in the build of Project 406 – a magnificent 52m / 171ft six-deck, true sportfish superyacht, set to become the world’s largest – when the main superstructure was skillfully lowered onto the hull by overhead cranes...

Sailing a Royal Huisman yacht is an experience like no other, whether you’re the one at the wheel – benefitting from its performance, handling and balance in demanding conditions – or the one delighting in its finish and comfort at an idyllic anchorage.
.
Small but important details of design and construction reveal themselves over time and affirm value of engineering that is inherent in every Royal Huisman yacht. 56m / 186ft AQUARIUS is ‘close to perfect’: her owners simply want a larger yacht – and even more impressive performance.
.
It is a great compliment when owners value the experience of their yacht so highly that the only material change they want is to build a larger version, with exactly the same team. Yet that is the story behind the decision of the experienced husband and wife owners of the world cruising ketch AQUARIUS to create a stunning new 65m / 212ft ‘big sister’, AQUARIUS II.

Pretty flags: Royal Huisman’s ATHENA dressed up for the Grand Prix in Monaco. SUPERSIZED SAILING YACHTS BY ROYAL HUISMAN - An attractive (and possibly even better) alternative to large motoryachts.
.
In general, the comfort of motoryachts is mostly enjoyed by their owners while on “location A” or “location B”, such as Monaco’s exciting Port Hercule or an idyllic and pretty anchorage. Sailing yachts provide the same enjoyment, but are also much (more) fun while travelling from “A” to “B” or even reach remote corners of our beautiful planet.

They offer the stimulating experience of seeing the sails hoisted and catching the wind, and the slender bow cutting through the waves to pick up speed. Even those who are not keen on heeling angles, will be pleased to discover that new technologies exist to reduce lateral movement and heeling angle substantially. In addition to the thrill of sailing and the satisfaction, future owners will also enjoy the “green footprint” of their yacht and the significant efficiency advantage of free propulsion power (the wind!).

Luxurious as well as “fast and furious”, the multi-award winning 58m / 190ft yacht Ngoni is the product of bold and minimalist design realised with impeccable build quality. Her sleek and beautifully executed exterior conceals a host of innovative engineering to meet the challenges of marrying a huge, powerful and advanced Rondal rig with a slender and easily driven hull.
.
The beach deck aft completes the exterior picture in style: the grand, curving staircase descending elegantly to sea level beneath an informal sunbathing / social area with direct access into the owner’s suite. Relaxed seating beneath an awning is the perfect spot for a sundowner after the day’s activities.
.
The helm stations have been ergonomically executed but they also double as eye-catching works of art in harmony with Ngoni’s design ethos. There is excellent visibility for the helmsman all the way to the bow and a free-standing carbon fibre bimini can be set up over the helms to provide shade when required.
.
The teak foredeck shelters giant flush hatches with continuous, uninterrupted planking to conceal a large tender, a crane, sail, cooled waste lockers and a relaxing spa pool. See and learn more? RoyalHuisman.com/Ngoni

The Paris Climate Accords (2016) is an international treaty on climate change, covering climate change mitigation, adaptation, and finances to limit the rise in global mean temperature and reduce emissions. In a parallel track, superyacht owners and the team see it as their responsibility to push the boundaries and possibilities of innovation, and consistently improve energy efficiency.
.
Highly knowledgeable owners such as Bill Joy (the owner of Ethereal, the world’s first hybrid superyacht) joined forces with the shipyard team, providing valuable input to take big steps towards ever increasing efficiency onboard. The owners of Elfje, Foftein and Juliet subsequently also commissioned Royal Huisman to apply hybrid technology. Most recently, project 410, the 85m / 280ft New World Sloop, came with a briefing for an energy efficient yacht, considered to be a ‘revolutionary’ step into the future for superyachts.
.
In a world where the greater part of the superyacht fleet is not (yet) powered by sails, it is an attractive thought that wind is always free, and that wind propulsion will always beat energy consumption onboard motor yachts.
.
PARALLEL TRACKS - OVER 135 YEARS OF THE WORLD AROUND THE ROYAL HUISMAN: in the great theatre of global history, 135 years may appear to be no more than the closing lines of a single act. But extraordinary changes have taken place since the shipyard team began boatbuilding in 1884. Several “Parallel tracks” can be found in the article on the website > News > Inhuis stories & updates
