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.”

    A stunning yacht of rare beauty, combining classic hull lines with a powerful modern rig and a clean, contemporary chic above and below decks.

    Aquarius truly defines what it means to be a ‘modern classic’. With naval architecture by Dykstra Naval Architects and interior design from Mark Whiteley Design this magnificent 56m / 184ft ketch was realised by Royal Huisman together with Rondal and an outstanding team of rig specialists. Exceptional co-operation from the highly talented client team ensured a harmonious build and a highly successful outcome.

    The owners’ brief was for an elegant yet muscular sailboat with a classic profile, for family enjoyment. The yacht should have favourable sea keeping characteristics that are ideal for world cruising as well as standing her in good stead for the occasional Bucket regatta.

    Length: 56m / 184ft
    Naval architect: Dykstra Naval Architects
    Interior design: Mark Whiteley Design - Project management: Godfrey Cray Maritime Ltd.
    Builder: Royal Huisman
