ETHEREAL – THE WORLD’S FIRST HYBRID SUPERYACHT – RECENTLY RETURNED FOR HUISFIT AT ROYAL HUISMAN AMSTERDAM. Her Owner, Bill Joy, comments: “We are happy to have Ethereal back at the yard for some long-term work. It is so great to be back with the RH Huisfit team, who has such great skills and detailed knowledge of Ethereal and has done such great work helping keep her in tiptop shape since her launch...” Read more in the winter edition of inhuis: www.royalhuisman.com/inhuis

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

Photos of Ngoni after delivery by Royal Huisman: 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 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.

Royal Huisman project 405’s construction starts: the 46m high-performance cruiser sloop “Reichel / Pugh - Nauta 151” 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: “…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.”
.
Bouwe Bekking - eight times Volvo Ocean Race competitor and representing the Owners’ race team adds: “The hull construction will be ‘featherlight’… Formidable competition to existing carbon composite superyachts during regattas.” Owner’s representative Nigel Ingram concludes: “In addition, Project 405 will offer all the benefits associated with existing Royal Huisman yachts: comfort, low sound levels and optimal world cruising characteristics. All good news to the Owners, who anticipate exploring the world in their new yacht”

Photo: ATLANTIDE HEADED TO HOLLAND FOR HUISFIT - The team of Royal Huisman and Huisfit is very honoured to earn the continued trust of Dr. Jim Clark, who commissioned the shipyard to carry out another new and very special restoration.
.
The 37m / 122ft classic motorsailer Atlantide was recently acquired by Dr. Jim Clark. Following the successful 2020-refit by Huisfit of his famous J-Class yacht Hanuman and with three newbuild orders completed by Royal Huisman - Hyperion (1998), Athena (2004) and Hanuman (2009) - in recent decades, he decided the same shipyard in Vollenhove should take care of his new acquisition Atlantide, as well.
.
Atlantide was built by the British yard Philip & Sons in the United Kingdom, and was delivered in 1930. Currently Atlantide is being shipped from Newport, USA, to the Netherlands where she is expected to#m arrive shortly before the turn of the year. More photos? See: @huisfit

PHI: THE WORLD’S LONGEST MOTORYACHT BELOW 500GT - Lifting the veil on the radical, fast displacement aluminium motoryacht (bit by bit, to respect the Owner’s request) Royal Huisman is excited to present an impressive new fact. Until now, PHI’s length was a mysterious “55m+”. With her launch coming up in 2021 it is time to reveal her actual overall length: 58.5m / 192ft, which makes her – based on today’s Classification rules – by far the longest motoryacht in the sub-500GT category. Cor D. Rover, responsible for PHI’s general concept, exterior design & interior layout, explains the design philosophy at www.royalhuisman.com/news

Uit de zaterdageditie van De Stentor Zwolle:

‘Normaal hebben we twee à drie nieuwbouwopdrachten in portefeuille, nu dus vier. Dit is dus best bijzonder, ook al omdat twee contracten zijn getekend in de coronatijd’’, zegt Van ’t Verlaat. Verder zijn de activiteiten flink toegenomen met forse onderhoudsbeurten en verbouwingen van boten. Daarvoor is vorig jaar in Amsterdam een tweede werflocatie in gebruik genomen.’

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
