The world cruising ketch Aquarius received the “Best Sail 40m+” award as well as the overall award “Best Interior”.
Both awards were handed out at the annual “International Superyacht Society Awards of Distinction”. Congratulations to Aquarius’ owners and gratitude on the part of her design and build team, who feel particularly honored by this recognition.
The owners’ brief was for an elegant yet muscular sailing yacht 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.
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 specialists. Exceptional co-operation from the highly talented client team ensured a harmonious build and a highly successful outcome.
