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

ROYAL HUISMAN TO BUILD WORLD’S LARGEST SLOOP
.
Anyone familiar with the superyacht industry is accustomed to grand descriptions of the exceptional nature of new projects. So, when a project of such a revolutionary nature as this sloop comes along, it is a challenge to find fresh words to truly illustrate the vision and ambition behind it. We will simply let the story of Royal Huisman’s Project 410 speak for itself… Read on at www.RoyalHuisman.com/NEWS

85m NEW WORLD SLOOP, Royal Huisman Project 410 | length: 85m / 280ft “world’s largest sloop” | naval architecture + exterior styling: Frers Design | interior design: Wetzels Brown | rig + integrated sailing system: Rondal | builder: Royal Huisman – A ‘revolutionary’ step into the future for superyachts

Royal Huisman Project 406, the world’s largest sportfish yacht, reveals her dramatic lines. An important milestone in the creation of a truly exceptional superyacht was marked when the hull of this 52m / 171ft luxury sportfish yacht was turned at Royal Huisman’s newbuild headquarters.
.
UNIQUE MOTORYACHTS WITHOUT COMPROMISE: Royal Huisman. The shipyard’s reputation has been largely built on a superlative portfolio of thirty-plus unique and tailor-made, low-profile sailing superyachts, but the legendary passion for perfection, expertise, quality, experience, flexibility and continuous innovation is not limited to these… The individual aspirations and challenges of both Project 403, motoryacht PHI, and current motoryacht Project 406 were deemed to be outside the comfort zone of some yards, but both owners presented their highly distinctive individual projects to Royal Huisman – where fresh opportunities for creative problem-solving and innovation were enthusiastically welcomed.
