Storytelling

Royal Huisman

Royal Huisman, 133 years of superyachts experience. 

Royal Huisman takes pride in building and refitting unique custom yachts. Yachts up to 90 meters, modern or classic, sail or motor. Choose aluminium, carbon composite or a combination of these materials. Royal Huisman focuses on quality rather than quantity. Founded in 1884 Royal Huisman has evolved from modest builder of wooden workboats to multiple awardwinning creator of some of the finest superyachts in the world. Royal Huisman is an extraordinary blend of 21st century technology and innovation, traditional craftsmanship and timeless values.

One of our stories

‘’I started at the shipyard knowing that they had a healthy reputation as a leading builder of custom yachts built in aluminium. What I didn’t realize as I do now, is that the same specialist skills and craftsmanship was being equally applied to Royal Huisman’s Advanced Composites Division where I have served for 14 years now. Performance optimisation is an increasingly important factor for our customers. Royal Huisman is fully equipped to build or refit carbon fibre hulls and superstructures to the highest standards that I could have imagined. The work of Royal Huisman is enhanced by the use of a laser-cutting machine for shaping carbon fibre cloth with pinpoint accuracy, as well as a five-axis 3D robotic milling machine that is interfaced into the design computer. I’m most proud to have been part of the growth and success of this division.

What keeps us busy at Royal Huisman? Currently I’m working on the pre-preg layup for the hull and deck of a 65-foot all-carbon sloop and a 58m high performance sloop with various composite components to complement its Alustar aluminium hull. (Huisfit, the shipyard’s refit division, is also in the process of converting a famous all-carbon offshore racer by adding a lifting keel, new superstructure and a full lightweight interior.)

Royal Huisman is no ordinary custom shipyard This is because our in-house expertise and purpose built facilities that house all the main trades associated with custom yacht building. From mechanical systems to cabinet making, we provide our customers with an ‘all under one roof’ approach to custom yacht building. I can only imagine that this has to be a rewarding experience for our customers.”
