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.”

Two of the world’s largest sailing yachts, Eos and Athena, have booked the same timing for their coming refit projects with Royal Huisman’s refit division.
The 93m / 305ft three-masted Lürssen schooner Eos, until recently the world’s largest sailing yacht, has for some time been a regular customer for Royal Huisman’s superyacht refit division, Huisfit. The Eos team has just signed a new contract with Huisfit, taking full advantage of the flexible choice of deep water location offered to meet their needs and schedule
At the same time, the Huisfit team is delighted to announce that the 90m / 295ft three masted schooner Athena, built by Royal Huisman in 2004 and with a seriously impressive log book of globe-circling adventures, has booked the same timing for her latest refit programme. In 2014 the Huisfit team also took care of various aesthetic and technical updates by sending its own ’flying squad’ of specialist personnel out to Athena during a stopover in the Mediterranean.
Athena arrived today and Eos is expected late this summer. Both yachts will be at a deep seawater location in Holland for several months during the winter “refit season”.
“There can be little doubt that returning clients are always ‘a shipyard’s best ambassador’” commented Huisfit’s Bert Tromp, “so we are particularly pleased that this announcement concerns two of the world’s largest and most prestigious sailing yachts – both of them long
term Huisfit clients. Not only that, but we will have the privilege of working on the world’s 5th and 6th largest sailing yachts at the same time, which is quite an accolade for Huisfit.”
