Royal Huisman has great pleasure in unveiling the commission to build a truly unique powerboat designed by the renowned Vripack Yacht Design Studio for a very experienced Client. This exceptional high-speed motor yacht will proudly become the world’s largest true Sportfish Yacht, with her towering profile accommodating six decks, and her powerful hull measuring 52m / 171 ft overall.
The exterior and interior design are by the Vripack studio, who combine the stunning design with their state-of-the-art in-house naval architecture. Development of the relevant main aspects is in full progress, and all key components of this Sportfish Yacht, which Royal Huisman is referring to as “Project 406”, will be engineered in close collaboration with the Vripack studio, and produced at the shipyard in Vollenhove.
Bart M. Bouwhuis, Creative Director at Vripack, comments: “This is a true sportfisher, designed for a private Client who takes sportfishing very seriously. We have ensured that all elements of the design are underpinned by our naval architectural expertise, and that means zero compromises. As the world’s largest true Sportfish Yacht, this aluminium build will be hugely technologically challenging, and we are truly delighted to work with a world-class shipyard such as Royal Huisman to bring this iconic creation to life.”
