Royal Huisman: new order for 65m/ 212ft performance ketch

The joint team of Royal Huisman, Dykstra Naval Architects and Mark Whiteley Design is delighted to announce the newbuild agreement for an exciting 65m / 212ft performance ketch rigged sailing yacht.

A period of concept design and development by the experienced owners’ team, architects and builder has been successfully completed and signed off: an important milestone which coincides with the start of the 2021 Monaco Yacht Show. The creation of this stunning superyacht is now focused on multidisciplinary design and engineering, which are the subsequent steps of Royal Huisman’s efficient Stage Gate process project management and Concurrent Engineering approach. This will bring the project to readiness for the next big step: the start of the construction at Royal Huisman’s newbuild facilities in Vollenhove, The Netherlands.
 
One of the main areas of focus for this ketch rigged sailing yacht is the optimization of performance: Alustar aluminum construction, carbon rig, and an integrated sailing system by Rondal have been specified to enhance winning potential on the superyacht regatta circuit.
 
Limited information is currently available. Further updates with more details will be released in the months ahead and upon the completion of major phases throughout the duration of the project.
 
Royal Huisman’s CEO Jan Timmerman comments: “We are honored that this client has entrusted Royal Huisman with the realization of his dream – a truly beautiful and unique yacht. Project 408 fits perfectly within our growing newbuild portfolio of exceptional sailing and motoryacht projects.”
