“A dramatically innovative Royal Huisman concept that redefines supersized sailing yachts – delivering unprecedented performance, amenity, easy handling and energy efficiency.”
“The emergence of sailing yachts on this scale, with the level of energy efficiency and eco-responsibility offered by WING 100, would have been unthinkable just a decade ago.
The team is incredibly excited to be at the forefront of this conceptual revolution. We look forward to applying our renowned innovation and engineering skills to the realization of this highly ambitious project – creating the fourth and largest Royal Huisman build yet in the global top 10 of supersized sailing yachts.”

Supersized sailing yachts by Royal Huisman: an attractive (and possibly even better) alternative to motor yachts

Energy-saving and green energy features in more detail
Thanks to her efficient and easy to deploy rig, WING 100 will consume less than 20% of the energy required by an equivalent-sized conventionally powered motor yacht on passage.
Under sail, 200kW can be produced by the hydro generator equivalent to over 40,000 liters / year fuel saving.
480m2 / 5167ft2 of solar panels are integrated on the carbon Rondal masts to generate 250kW / day equivalent to a further savings of over 20,000 liters / year.
The main sails and staysails of the wing mast rig can be set in few minutes making sailing the easy choice. This results in 750kW average power saving, equivalent to over 166,000 liters/year.
The electrical system provides for flexible and economical electric propulsion when under power, saving more energy.
The system of WING 100 is calculated to save in total over 225,000 liters of fuel per year compared with similar sized, conventional engine-powered mega yachts.
