More and more superyacht owners have come to recognize that the thrill of the regatta circuit...
…coupled with the relaxed social ambiance they can enjoy ashore with fellow owners, guests and crew at a regatta makes the perfect complement to their ocean cruising itineraries.
Royal Huisman was an early supporter of the original Nantucket Bucket regatta in 1986 and has continued to support the Bucket Regattas in Newport and St Barth’s ever since. In 2014 Royal Huisman teamed up with regular supporters to acquire the Bucket Regattas and so to secure the relaxed, owner-focused culture of these special “industry supported” events for the long term.
