PHI’s overall length is 58.5m / 192ft: developed and constructed below 500GT, she is by far the longest motoryacht in this category, based on current Classification rules. Royal Huisman CEO Jan Timmerman: “… take a look at our two current motoryacht projects: PHI, and a unique 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. So what gives us so much confidence in Royal Huisman’s capability to build exceptional motoryachts? Here are two good…” Curious to read more? www.royalhuisman.com/news

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.

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.”

Photo by the Owners of Antares: Many Royal Huisman yacht Owners are actively involved in global sailing. Antares’ Owners acquired their 40m / 132ft luxury world cruising ketch in 2016 and subsequently commissioned the shipyard’s dedicated refit division, Huisfit, as part of the yacht’s meticulously planned preparation for expeditions with their family.

Juliet re-launched following hybrid conversion by Huisfit - The 44m / 143ft Royal Huisman world cruising ketch was launched in 1993 and is a fine example of pioneering, custom-built technologies in late 20th century yacht building.
