Huisfit going strong with extra orders!

29 okt 2018

The team of Royal Huisman’s dedicated department for refit, repair and renewal is pleased to announce that the sailing yachts Wisp, Yonder and Foftein signed up for various commissions. These new projects will be undertaken as part of the seven refits in total benefitting from Huisfit’s expertise during the coming winter season.

Just arrived in Vollenhove for Huisfit 2018-2019: Yonder (17m / 56ft Sparkman & Stephens sloop, Royal Huisman 1980) and Foftein (33m / 108ft Frers designed sloop, Royal Huisman, 1999). Wisp (Hoek designed sloop, Royal Huisman, 2014) is expected soon at Huisfit’s facilities in Amsterdam.

Last summer, Eos and Athena, both returning clients and two of the world’s largest sailing yachts, booked in for major refits by Huisfit. Both yachts have now arrived in Holland and work is well underway at one of Royal Huisman’s flexible deep-seawater locations.

The Frers-designed Royal Huisman sloop Spiip has also arrived in Holland for Huisfit. The team has been assigned to undertake service work and various electric and electronics upgrades during a short stopover in Holland, to where Spiip travelled after a beautiful summer cruise in Scandinavian waters.

Last, but not least is the legendary Herreshoff-built Vagrant. This classic schooner of 39m / 128ft (overall incl. bowsprit) - launched in 1913 - is currently completely being rebuilt at the shipyard in Vollenhove.
