One of Royal Huisman’s main priorities is taking care of our fleet: not only throughout the warranty period but far into the future. 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 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.
.
A STOPOVER IN AMSTERDAM - A stunning 2021 cruise in the Northern cruising grounds? Amsterdam is very suitable for a short stopover (and combined with support by Huisfit, if needed). Scotland as well as the Baltic and Norwegian Seas offer a great variety and maritime magnificence: easily accessible when using Amsterdam as your base, offering the prospect of a very special, integrated refit-and-cruise plan.

She is back! The 25m / 81’ Germán Frers designed maxi racer BELLE FONTAINE was delivered by Royal Huisman in 1981. Last night she returned to take advantage of Huisfit, Royal Huisman dedicated division for refit, rebuild and renewal. More photos: @huisfit
.
Nearly 40 years ago Belle Fontaine’s design was based on a gentle sheer and raked transom which became classic Frers hallmarks of the period. Following the 1982 Whitbread around the World race victory of the Royal Huisman Frers designed FLYER II this maxi racer was again an exciting project for the shipyard. Yet, what singled out this project especially was the involvement of an additional member of the client team, Pieter Beeldsnijder, who would be responsible for interior design. Generally speaking, refined interiors were not high on the agenda of racing yacht owners. BELLE FONTAINE’s build owner, however, had different ideas. Although focused on the racing circuit, he wanted full use from his yacht and that included passage making and cruising with friends and family.
.
Suddenly, here was a project that offered the shipyard the opportunity to exercise the full extent of its craftsmanship and engineering, from cutting and welding aluminium all the way through to the creation of an immaculate and distinctive custom interior. BELLE FONTAINE may have been another racing yacht, but she was also a portent of the large, luxury custom yachts that would become Royal Huisman’s future: custom, performance driven cruising yachts.

Huisfit: Superyacht Refit, Rebuild and Renewal by Royal Huisman. Current projects include the J class yachts Hanuman and Topaz, the conversion of the Feadship Broadwater, the conversion of Juliet’s propulsion and generators from conventional into hybrid.

The 51m / 166ft classic schooner BORKUMRIFF IV (2002) is for sale. The challenging conditions of fishing the desolate foam streaked 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.
.
Like a true classic BORKUMRIFF IV has depth beyond the first read. She invites, indeed rewards closer inspection. The quality of the materials used throughout this magnificent yacht encourages your touch and welcomes your gaze. Consider the refined navigation and communication station. Let your hand rest upon the classic spoke steering wheel and imagine the sense of command. Feast your eyes across the acres of teak deck that lay beneath your feet. Feel the sailing experience that BORKUMRIFF IV presents. See more via www.royalhuisman.com/BorkumriffIV

APEX 850 is undoubtedly the most ambitious and inspiring concept yet to be developed in an exclusive relationship between Royal Huisman and the renowned superyacht designer Malcolm McKeon. Some facts and highlights:
.
The world’s largest sloop: 85 m / 279 ft overall and 107 m / 351 ft air-draft
.
Step aboard: beautiful lobby to enter saloon or guest corridor and its staterooms. 250 m² / 2690 ft² Owners’ apartment with floor-to-ceiling glass walls, private cinema, beach club, gym and sauna. Stern quarters: tucked-away seating between deck and sea level for connectivity with the ocean
.
3200 m² Upwind / 4700 m² downwind: the sailing experience of APEX 850 will be sensational, with speeds higher than wind speed in most conditions. Her limited heel angle will provide stability, comfort and safety for all on board
.
APEX is fully resolved in terms of design, naval architecture and engineering. Technical challenges have been identified and addressed; potential for refinement explored and incorporated. The concept is therefore an unprecedented opportunity for an ambitious and creative Owner to stamp their individuality while still viewing an unusually attractive delivery date for such a project.

Conventional wisdom states that designing and building a custom yacht will always involve trade-offs between conflicting objectives. True as that may be, there is little sign of compromise in the remarkably impressive 57.5m flybridge ketch Twizzle - despite the most challenging list of objectives. It is the definitive state of the art yacht, representing “the art of the only just possible”.
.
The owners’ brief was certainly comprehensive: the top line specification was for a fast, luxurious long distance cruising yacht with shoal draft capabilities that offered all the amenities, comfort and standards of a motor yacht. And more: the yacht should be streamlined, low-profiled and arresting in appearance; it should be effective in all latitudes and climates. There was more (much more) still. With her dramatic styling, magnificent amenity, innovative features and sparkling sailing performance, Twizzle is a yacht that will make a powerful impression wherever in the world she drops her anchors. Twizzle is also available for charter. Read more via www.royalhuisman.com/Twizzle

BIG NEWS, because the show must go on! Royal Huisman and Malcolm McKeon are proud to unveil APEX 850: The World’s Largest Sloop. This is undoubtedly the most ambitious and inspiring concept yet to be developed in an exclusive relationship between Royal Huisman and the renowned superyacht designer Malcolm McKeon.
.
Above her sleek and powerful 85 m / 279 ft hull, APEX features a towering 107 m / 351 ft air-draft rig that will dominate the marine landscape wherever in the world she drops anchor. Stunning minimalism in every aspect of McKeon’s radical design serves to emphasise the grace and potential of this extraordinary ocean greyhound. Even the all-glass superstructure, encompassing some 200 m2 / 2150 ft2 of guest cockpit and a luxurious saloon, scarcely seems to be there - an understated, almost ethereal presence.
.
APEX 850 is fully resolved in terms of design, naval architecture and engineering. Technical challenges have been identified and addressed; potential for refinement explored and incorporated. The concept is therefore an unprecedented opportunity for an ambitious and creative Owner to stamp their individuality while still viewing an unusually attractive delivery date for such a project.
