Royal Huisman’s full-scale design mock-ups support the design and decision-making process from vision to concept. To accommodate the very sizeable mock-up of the aft half main deck of Project 404 Sarissa, a temporary tent was set up on the shipyard premises available for this purpose.

Various clients of Royal Huisman requested the shipyard to build them a full-size mockups months ahead of the start of the actual production of their dream yacht. The scope can vary from a pedestal with steering wheel, to large areas such as a cabin layout or deck section.

“Converting the famous race boat Mari-Cha IV to a performance cruiser while preserving and honoring her history was a project that required an owner with a singular vision.”

The article about this Huisfit project by Boat International continues: "As Mari-Cha IV, the schooner’s sole purpose was to set speed and distance records over offshore courses with all sails handled manually. Delivered in 2003 to her former owner, she accomplished her goal with such feats as breaking the transatlantic record right out of the box.”

“But fame is fleeting; this former superstar was sold. [...] And then, from an unlikely corner — classic cars to be precise — came an interested party with a singular vision. The boat’s history needed to be preserved and honored, he said, and the best way to do that was to show how she could be a no-compromise cruising experience."

SARISSA’s eco credentials: emission free propulsion and sailing, retractable propulsion, regeneration, and much more.

From conception, the owners sought environmentally friendly solutions that also enhance the yacht’s performance, improve the onboard experience and minimise impact on the natural world.

Owners’ representative captain Gregory Monks explains: “With that in mind and to reduce demand on fossil fuels, we sought the most efficient means of generating, storing and using energy.”

The 51m / 166ft schooner Borkumriff IV is a timeless classic, which rewards closer inspection.

The high-quality materials used throughout this beautiful yacht invite you to touch and admire them. Place your hand on the classic spoke steering wheel and imagine the feeling of control. Enjoy the sight of the vast teak deck under your feet. Experience the sailing adventure that Borkumriff IV offers.

The challenging conditions of fishing the desolate waters of the Grand Banks under sail in the 19th century led to the development of the magnificent Gloucester schooners – vessels that could work under the most demanding sea conditions yet still race home at speed to achieve the highest price for their catch.

Contemporary flybridge schooner SEA EAGLE in charter mode: the ultimate expression of personal freedom. Supersized sailing yachts: an attractive (and possibly even better) alternative to large motoryachts.

Supersized sailing yachts offer the same enjoyment but are also much (more) fun while travelling from “A” to “B”. Also, they offer the stimulating experience of seeing the sails hoisted, 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 of Royal Huisman’s bespoke quality, future owners will also enjoy the “green footprint” and the significant efficiency advantage of free propulsion power (the wind!).

Last but not least, “energy-neutral”-mode will prove a much-appreciated feature: spinning the propellers to generate more than sufficient electrical power for all board systems, and for re-charging the batteries to enjoy “silent mode” while at anchor. For some, these features might sound like uncharted waters that require a lot more development, but not so for Royal Huisman.

Athos following her conversion at ‘HUISFIT by Royal Huisman’ in Amsterdam. Royal Huisman is principally known as a builder of fine custom yachts, but the same standards of expertise and craftsmanship are equally accessible for superyacht refits.

Huisfit has a service department that provides parts and technical support to both new and refitted yachts, wherever they are in the world. Because the team takes pride in standing behind its work, this is not just an advisory and parts delivery service. If a problem requires the attendance of the shipyard’s engineers – whether the yacht is lying in a Mediterranean marina or at a remote Pacific anchorage – they’ll be there, and swiftly.
