The area around Royal Huisman in Vollenhove is among the most picturesque in Holland with a wealth of scenic and cultural attractions: Urk, Schokland, Giethoorn (incl. 2-star Michelin restaurant & lodge De Lindenhof), Blokzijl and much more. A very special part of Holland. All this and fine yacht building, too.

Aquarius has been at safe haven “Royal Huisman Amsterdam” for four weeks during Spring 2020. She departed last weekend. See full video at Instagram TV (IGTV) or youtube.com/RoyalHuismanVideos
.
One of Royal Huisman’s main priorities is taking care of our fleet: not only throughout the warranty period but far into the future. And also in these extraordinary times caused by the Corona-virus.
.
A Royal Huisman yacht is designed and constructed to be as trouble-free and operationally efficient as can be, recognizing that the oceans are a testing environment. Owners and their teams welcome the reassurance that the Royal Huisman and Huisfit teams firmly stand behind the work done, providing expert advice, service and support: worldwide, but also at our deepwater Amsterdam location and at our headquarters in Vollenhove, Holland.
.
Aquarius’ captain James Tuner comments: “In a time of unprecedented uncertainty surrounding the implications of the recent global pandemic and the effect it had had on planning for the welfare of the vessel, her owners and crew we were offered the opportunity for safe and secure refuge at RH’s Amsterdam facility. Coupled with the unparalleled and unwavering support that we have received from Royal Huisman as one of their clients this opportunity held great assurance.
.
The opportunity also brought with it the possibility of ‘bringing Aquarius home’ returning her to the technical skill set of the shipyard where any vessel specific work could be carried out to its fullest with complete certainty as to the outcome and the satisfaction of her owners. I am most gratefully appreciative of this support that we continue to receive in all aspects from our extended family at Royal Huisman.”

SEA EAGLE II returns from testing her sail handling systems on the North Sea. Meeting Covid-19 restrictions during “intelligent lock-down” in the Netherlands: a measure that allows Royal Huisman to continue working in these extraordinary times provided that strict regulations are adhered to. For example social distancing during trials by a minimal number of crew and Project 400 team members; health checks and statements; dedicated working areas; “onboard traffic” directions and “no go” areas. See video at YouTube.com/RoyalHuismanVideos
.
Early January 2020, SEA EAGLE II – the world’s largest aluminum sailing yacht - was transferred from the headquarters in Vollenhove to Royal Huisman’s Amsterdam facility, where her Rondal carbon Panamax schooner rig was stepped and tuned. Delivery is expected as soon as the well-prepared sail trial program is completed in a safe, allowed and acceptable manner, for everyone involved.

PROJECT PHI IN THE TIME OF CORONA: since mid-March 2020, the Netherlands are in what is referred to as an “intelligent lock-down”, a measure that allows the team to continue working provided that strict regulations are adhered to. These include the continuously monitoring of the health situation; social distancing and working in shifts to limit the number of people on site. Office staff are working from home and daily video conferencing not only serves to communicate with external parties, but also provides a means of consultation for inhouse project teams.
.
The 55m+ / 180ft+ fast displacement, sub-500GT motor yacht PHI – Project 403 - is now in Royal Huisman’s largest shipbuilding hall which provides the room needed for her assembly and further outfitting. Of course, Project 403 also met with Covid-19 restrictions, but as PHI’s project manager & Owner’s representative Guy Booth explains, this did not affect the progress of the build any more than strictly necessary:
.
“The team at the shipyard adapted very quickly, and together with their pedigree, international build partners, they have found new ways to work, while keeping us on-track. Progress continues more or less on schedule, despite the unprecedented challenges faced at this time, which demonstrates the true dedication of all involved. The Owner and his team have been kept well informed throughout, despite being unable to visit the shipyard, and his confidence in the shipyard has never been higher. Thanks to the whole team at Royal Huisman.”
