It is not easy to be objective about the quality of your own work. Organisations such as the World Superyacht Awards, the International Superyacht Society Awards and their expert, independent juries help to provide an unbiased measure of achievement. Having received more than its fair share of such recognition, the Royal Huisman team is not complacent about its success: “never forget that a shipyard is only as good as its next boat.” An overview of recent awards can be found at RoyalHuisman.com > YACHTS > AWARDS or via direct link www.royalhuisman.com/awards

HAPPY INTERNATIONAL DAY OF THE SEAFARER!

Super-J HANUMAN, designed by Dykstra Naval Architects and Pieter Beeldsnijder, was delivered by Royal Huisman in 2009. More photos, information and brochure: RoyalHuisman.com > YACHTS > DELIVERED YACHTS or via direct link: www.royalhuisman.com/Hanuman

This stunning 42m / 138ft J Class yacht is currently in Holland to take advantage of Royal Huisman’s Huisfit program. Huisfit has already proven itself to be the refit service of choice for a large number of superyachts (both power and sail), with many returning clients. Could Huisfit be the smart choice for your project too?

There can be little doubt that returning clients are always “a shipyard’s best ambassador”. SKAT, the eye-catching Espen Øino designed 71m / 231ft Lürssen motor yacht, has benefitted from Royal Huisman's refit division, Huisfit, in 2012. The team of Skat was so impressed with the quality and timeliness of the refit program that they returned to Holland several times for more work to be carried out: 2014 - 2015, 2017 and 2019. Why? Refit good, Huisfit better! SKAT is now offered for sale: more photos can be found via @huisfit .

Experience the experience: ultimate comfort, quality and privacy onboard sustainable and award winning superyachts. 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.
.
And the experience does not stop there. Acquiring a Royal Huisman yacht means investing in a unique relationship with the “Royal Huisman family of yachts”, and other Royal Huisman owners. Whether enjoying likeminded company at events and regattas, or seeking advice and support from the far side of the world: that relationship will enrich your ownership over the long term.
.
And should you ever decide to sell your boat, the new owner will be pleased to step into that special relationship as well. The new owner, to whom at some point you may well have replied: “It’s a Royal Huisman!” An overview of all delivered yachts since 1884 can be found at www.royalhuisman.com > YACHTS > DELIVERED YACHTS
