The dramatic and purposeful contemporary lines of the stunning 81m / 266ft three-masted schooner SEA EAGLE II with plumb bow, powerful Panamax rig and effortless mile-devouring performance ensure that she will be recognised with admiration, on passage or at anchor, all over the globe. Realised by Royal Huisman, together with an outstanding team of client and industry colleagues, SEA EAGLE II is the world’s largest aluminium sailing yacht. A true headturner.
The Owner’s brief for SEA EAGLE II was very clear: the yacht needed to offer outstanding passage-making performance so that the owner could take in as much of the world under sail as possible. Above all, it had to be a true sailor’s superyacht – practical, powerful, safe, sea kindly and easily managed. The owner’s priorities were functionality and resilience, favouring simplicity and reliability over unnecessary frills.
