Silence after the storm: 47m / 154ft high-performance cruiser sloop Nilaya and her Panamax carbon fiber mast and boom by Rondal on the move to Royal Huisman Amsterdam.
.
Nigel Ingram of MCM Newport serves as the owners’ project manager on the build. “While the new Nilaya is meant to take the owners world cruising, they also asked for a boat with all the ‘good habits’ of their previous racer, meaning responsiveness and excellent handling.
.
Alustar aluminum is the right material for an advanced, quality superyacht for global cruising. It deals with noise better and is a better choice for cruising in comfort to remote locations. However, we also thought it was possible to build a lighter aluminum high-performance superyacht. Royal Huisman was not afraid to invest in research to explore and develop all manner of innovative weight-saving possibilities. They really chased the details.”

Nilaya is possibly the first truly composite superyacht of the modern era. While many aluminum vessels have some composite parts, Royal Huisman project 405 is much more a hybrid.
.
The revolutionary element of the Featherlight™ method for this 47m / 154ft high-performance cruiser sloop is not a single process or construction material, but a holistic light-weight method for delivering a global cruising yacht that will be completely at home competing in superyacht racing events.
.
Finite Element Analysis (FEA) modeling enabled selecting various construction materials (like carbon composite watertight bulkhead) and varied Alustar aluminum plate thicknesses and frame spacing to maximize hull stiffness while minimizing total displacement. With engineering and weight management brought in-house, the approach was comprehensive, extending to interior, lighting, insulation, and all mechanical systems.

Happy thanksgiving to all friends of Royal Huisman and Huisfit. We are grateful for creating unique yachts for visionary owners.
.
In 1989 the J-class Endeavour was completely rebuilt by Royal Huisman (nowadays the shipyard's Huisfit division). The yacht, originally built by Camper & Nicholsons in 1934, was saved from a muddy grave; restructured in England then brought to Royal Huisman to restore her to her finest condition.
.
Thanks to her owner, Endeavour did not become a piece of forgotten history – she is a living sailing legend.
