“Only a sailboat builder has the know-how and ambition to execute miracles on a square inch.” These are the words of Cor D. Rover responsible for the general concept, exterior design and interior layout of the Royal Huisman newbuild motoryacht PHI. The sleek hull and low volume of this 58.5m / 192ft project presented exceptional engineering challenges.
.
Royal Huisman’s reputation has been largely built on a superlative portfolio of thirty-plus low-profile sailing superyachts. From classic to contemporary, from 30m to 90m+ / 100ft to 300ft+, every one is unique, tailor-made. Yet the legendary passion for perfection, expertise, quality, experience, flexibility and continuous innovation behind these projects is not limited to sailing yachts.
.
Just take a look at our two current motoryacht projects: project 403, PHI, and project 406, a unique 52m / 171ft sportfish yacht that will become the largest of its kind in the world. The individual aspirations and challenges of each of these projects were seen to be well outside the comfort zone by some yards. Curious to learn why each of these owners brought their highly distinctive individual projects to Royal Huisman? Please find the article “Unique motoryachts” at www.royalhuisman.com/inhuis

SPIIP at the St. Barths Bucket Regatta 2017: First in Class and First Overall. Some yachts are conceived with the strong desire for fast passages and podium places. Royal Huisman is no stranger to delivering the lightest, most luxurious and reliable yachts, with fast and efficient sail handling systems to suit the individual owner’s brief. Here are some examples from recent years: www.royalhuisman.com/regattasucceses
.
The 34m / 112ft Royal Huisman performance sloop SPIIP is now offered for sale. Most superyachts from the Royal Huisman fleet are for private use only and are enjoyed ‘to the max’ by their owners, families and friends. Only very few of these pedigree yachts are occasionally available for charter and an equally small number come up looking for a new owner.

Super-J Hanuman post-Huisfit: ready to race again! Hanuman’s owner, Jim Clark: "I would not consider a refit anywhere else”
.
Royal Huisman is principally known as a builder of fine custom yachts, but the same standards of expertise and craftsmanship are equally accessible for superyacht refits. Every yacht requires a refit and refurbishment from time to time. Even Royal Huisman yachts eventually feel the strain of the extensive global passage-making so thoroughly enjoyed by their owners. Huisfit, Royal Huisman’s dedicated division for refit, rebuild and renewal, offers an extensive range of benefits and services to all superyachts in the global fleet. Could Huisfit be the smart choice for your project, too? Huisfit warmly welcomes all enquiries. For more info please visit Huisfit.com

“Build me a beast. Don’t build me a wolf in sheep’s clothing. This has to be an edgy and innovative weapon; fast and furious,” said the Client. If ever a superyacht fulfilled the owner’s brief to the last letter – and then some – Ngoni is that yacht.
.
Even a casual glance at the finished yacht makes clear the owner got exactly what he wanted. From her purposeful plumb bow through the arresting reverse sheer and gleaming glass superstructure to the elegant beach deck and curving staircase aft; from the stunning painted topsides to the tip of her 75m / 246ft air draft carbon rig by Rondal, Ngoni is every dimension a beast. 58m / 190ft high-performance sloop Ngoni (Royal Huisman, 2017) is now for sale...

Most superyachts in the Royal Huisman fleet are for private use only and are enjoyed “to the max” by the owners who commissioned them. Only very few yachts become available for a new “Custodian”. The dedicated section of the Royal Huisman website lists the very few pedigree yachts which are occasionally available for charter, and the even smaller number of yachts looking for a new owner: royalhuisman.com - please follow the links to Yachts and For sale & charter

Royal Huisman’s Phi is READY TO SHINE
.
The 58.5m / 192ft motoryacht is based on the exterior design from the drawing board of Cor D. Rover and naval architecture by Van Oossanen Naval Architects. PHI’s (still secret!) interior design and styling are defined by the London based studio Lawson Robb. The build team at Royal Huisman realized a number of innovations and “spectacular firsts” onboard PHI, which will be - by far - the longest motoryacht in the sub-500GT category based on today’s Classification rules.

P&G offer expert services, maintenance, spare parts supplies and support to all superyachts, backed by the team of Royal Huisman, Huisfit and Rondal in Holland. We spoke with Alisdair Galbraith, co-founder of P&G Yachting.

Ethereal is the world’s first hybrid superyacht. She was delivered by Royal Huisman in 2009. Earlier today she departed from Holland after a successful refit by Huisfit at Royal Huisman Amsterdam.
.
Shortly before the re-delivery Captain, Peter Grubb, kindly shared his feedback following an extensive seven month in-water-refit: “…the quality of work was high. […] and there was a list of work the engineers had for some years never really got to work on. So that list is now nearly down to zero, which is great. […] We worked very closely with the project manager and the project controllers, having weekly meetings to follow the budget and the work flow. There really weren’t any big surprises as we went along. It was really good.”
