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.”

Royal Huisman is pleased to reveal first construction photos of this radical, fast displacement motoryacht’s aluminium hull.
Project Phi was first announced in last summer and, with design engineering well advanced, construction of the aluminium hull began at Royal Huisman’s Vollenhove yard in mid-February 2019.
Among a long list of exceptional features of this project are the fuel-efficient hull lines based on the patented Fast-Displacement XL® concept by Van Oossanen Naval Architects, who are responsible to maximise the yacht’s length of over 55m / 180ft while remaining within the sub-500GT category.
The resulting hull will provide a comfortable and stable platform for this radical and high performance vessel, notwithstanding the relatively narrow beam that contributes to Phi’s striking looks.
At this stage we cannot share details of Phi’s exterior design from Cor D. Rover, or of her interior appearance from Lawson Robb. Both remain highly secret. Currently we can only state that Phi will feature extensive external deck space and that proportions throughout her design will be informed by ‘the other Phi’ – the formula within the Golden Ratio that governs the continuation of dimensions and shapes within the natural world.
With hull turning scheduled for summer 2019, numerous unique features and specialist aspects of the yacht are being prepared in parallel to the hull construction by the Royal Huisman team, working in close co-operation with the owner’s team and designers. Delivery of Project Phi is scheduled for 2021.
The Superyacht Cup is the longest running superyacht regatta in Europe, a favourite with yacht owners, friends, captains and crew who visit Palma de Mallorca annually for the four day event. With warm early summer conditions and reliable sea breezes, the Bay of Palma offers some of the most idyllic racing conditions in the Mediterranean. The racing is run by the highly experienced international Race Officers and the team at Real Club Nautico de Palma. The participating superyachts are all moored together stern-to in the Superyacht Cup Regatta Village located at Muelle Viejo with the iconic Palma Cathedral and Palm tree lined Paseo Maritimo providing a stunning back-drop.
Meet the Dutch, and especially the members of the HISWA Holland Yachting Group, during this beatiful event in Palma!
