1884: Jan Huisman founds the yard to build small wooden workboats and fishing boats.
.
Note the ship’s model: this was the reference for the motor cruiser they were constructing. Royal Huisman has evolved from ‘local builder of wooden workboats’ to the multiple award-winning creator of some of the finest superyachts in the world.
.
The path to perfection has been a passage through hard times as well as good. Royal Huisman transformed from modest builder of wooden workboats to multiple award-winning creator of some of the finest superyachts in the world today.

“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

Royal Huisman will be exhibiting at the Monaco Yacht Show - 23 to 25 September - Quai des États-Unis - stand QE22.

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. Curious to see more of SPIIP and a limited number of additional Royal Huisman superyachts for sale? www.royalhuisman.com/forsaleandcharter

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
