“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 project 403, PHI
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. With the benefit of expert advice, each of these owners brought their highly distinctive individual projects to Royal Huisman, where fresh opportunities for creative problem-solving and innovation were enthusiastically welcomed.
Royal Huisman project 406
Here are two good examples of the ‘edge’ Royal Huisman has to offer. First, the expertise we have acquired from our unrivalled 55 years’ experience in aluminium construction. This enables us to maximise performance and efficiency through compact, lightweight and high strength engineering. Second, our ability to design and install complex operational systems in restricted volume hull areas provides the owner with more net space for amenities and further increases efficiency.
Add to that a can-do mentality, seeking to optimize and enhance the ideas of the owner, their architects and designers, rather than trying to persuade them to scale back their ambitions to what the shipyard is accustomed to delivering. We think that’s a pretty good combination!
The design and styling of any Royal Huisman yacht normally starts with a blank sheet on which the first lines of a new masterpiece are drafted. Partnering with your designer of choice you can start dreaming, because we can build it, we can realize your dream!
Why not experience a ‘live’ or ‘digital’ tour of both our shipyard locations? You can see at first hand the unique benefits of Royal Huisman’s (and sister company Rondal’s) purpose-built facilities extending to a combined area of 42,000 m2 / 452,100 ft2 to view.
This rewarding “no-obligations” tour is available to existing clients who want to re-familiarise themselves, as well as to new clients keen to see Royal Huisman’s renowned capabilities before committing to a project Take this opportunity to see inhouse skills, inspect the projects under construction, meet our team, and speak to us about your yachting plans and ideas – it has never been easier!
