EXPERIENCING THE EXPERIENCE: 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 the value of engineering that is inherent in every Royal Huisman yacht. Attention to detail, in every detail: the more one looks the more one will see. See much more? www.royalhuisman.com > DISCOVER > EXPERIENCE THE EXPERIENCE

THE NEW CUSTODIAN - Royal Huisman Owners often take pleasure in recognizing that they have not only participated in the creation of a fine yacht to sail, but one which has kept alive the finest traditions of craftsmanship and will give enduring pleasure to future generations. “I’m not really the Owner of this wonderful work of art,” as one owner stated, “I’m just the custodian.”
.
From time to time, Royal Huisman yachts move into the care of “new custodians”. We spoke to the Owner of RAVENGER, which was delivered by the shipyard as Sea Eagle (I) in 2015. We asked about his views on owning such a yacht. Read the interview? www.royalhuisman.com > NEWS > INHUIS > inhuis winter 2020 - 2021 edition

A NATION OF ICE SKATERS - The region around Royal Huisman Vollenhove offers sport for every season and is amoung the most picturesque in Hollland with a wealth of scenic and cultural attractions. All this and fine yacht building, too!
.
When you are deciding where to build the ultimate superyacht project, there are many factors to consider. But three that stand out: quality, because you will want to build at a shipyard whose reputation for quality, consistency and value is beyond question. Location and culture, because ease of access, and a rewarding experience that extends beyond the confines of the shipyard, are pivotal to enjoying a truly fulfilling build process.

NEW ZEALAND REGATTA TIME! – A great preview: just a few days to go before the start of the New Zealand Millenium Cup (15 - 18 February). Royal Huisman is a proud returning sponsor of the NZ Millennium Cup as well as the Mastercard Superyacht Regatta (24 - 27 February), which are organized in parallel with the very exciting America’s Cup. It is an absolute joy to see these events, the South Pacific's premier superyacht regatta, take place in spite of these troubled global times.
.
Please watch Royal Huisman’s stablemates Whirlwind XII and Sassafras compete this year. Royal Huisman has created hundreds of vessels since the shipyard was founded in 1884. From the delivery of Whirlwind XII – the shipyard’s first superyacht – in 1986, a total of 33 yachts over 30m/100ft have been delivered: each yacht a one-off: classic, modern or contemporary, power or sail, based on the designs of an array of well-known naval architects and designers, for owners seeking the best available. The key qualities these architects and designers have in common are: a reputation for innovation, a high level of quality, and exceptional attention to detail. A Royal Huisman yacht is designed and constructed to be as trouble-free and operationally efficient as can be, recognising that the oceans are a testing environment.

“FORMIDABLE COMPETITION TO EXISTING CARBON COMPOSITE SUPERYACHTS DURING REGATTAS” - The 46m / 151ft high-performance cruiser sloop “Reichel / Pugh - Nauta 151” started construction at Royal Huisman. This versatile sailing yacht is designed and built for very experienced Owners who presented a stimulating brief: comfort and safety to explore the world, in an extremely lightweight structure to ensure victories in superyacht regattas.
.
Mario Pedol, of Nauta Design: "To combine comfort and safety to explore the world with an extremely lightweight yacht to be competitive to carbon composite superyachts in regattas wasn’t an easy task. Our early intuition was that an aluminium construction sailing yacht could be much lighter than the existing aluminium fleet. Royal Huisman supported this vision with enthusiasm and accepted the challenge. Extensive research work and calculations, confirmed our initial thought.”
.
Dutch professional race captain Bouwe Bekking (eight times Volvo Ocean Race competitor) represents the Owners’ race team: “The hull construction of this superyacht is an optimal mix of aluminum and carbon composite, and will be ‘featherlight’. Our result will be formidable competition to existing carbon composite superyachts during regattas.”

In 2020, many Royal Huisman yachts travelled to the facilities to receive assistance. The deep water Amsterdam location and the headquarters in Vollenhove were pleased to welcome Juliet, Hanuman, Meteor, Yonder, SEA EAGLE II, Aquarius, Belle Fontaine, Wisp, Ngoni, Ethereal and two more undisclosed pedigree superyachts. In addition, several “non-Royal Huisman” yachts found a safe haven at Royal Huisman’s facilities and, as always, the team was delighted to assist them. www.royalhuisman.com & www.huisfit.com

Small but important details of design and construction reveal themselves over time and affirm the value engineering that is inherent in every Royal Huisman yacht.
.
“Build me a beast,” demanded the Owner of Ngoni, “don’t build me a wolf in sheep’s clothing. This has to be an edgy and innovative weapon; fast and furious.” If ever a superyacht fulfilled the Owner’s brief to the last letter – and then some – the 58m / 190ft Ngoni is that yacht.
