Royal Huisman to enter the record books again

Dutch custom superyacht builder Royal Huisman is set to enter the record books again – this time for building an 81m sailing yacht with a 93m tall sloop rig.

Noir has been designed by Malcolm McKeon design and is designed for world cruising and exploration.

Her profile will feature McKeon’s contemporary styling with a reverse bow for maximum waterline length and a flying bridge for outdoor living space underway.

Large areas of glass and folding platforms will keep guests connected to the sea.

Speed, power, and responsive handling are part of the brief developed by Noir’s owner.

She is specifically sized to carry a 14m tender to allow coastal exploration and to transport guests and provisions without repositioning the yacht closer to a harbour.

Further particulars of the yacht include an all-aluminium construction with auxiliary power supplied by electric drives.

The mast will be supplied by Rondal together with the boom, and integrated sailing system. And in keeping with her code name Noir, all the deck gear and all her windows will be black.

When completed, the yacht will rank among the world’s top ten largest sailing yachts.

World’s tallest sloop

Her mast height is set to place her as the world’s tallest sloop, with Royal Huisman stating her air draft will exceed the current tallest rig by about 4m.

“We are very pleased to be building again at Royal Huisman,” said Malcolm McKeon. “Having built our award-winning 59.7 metre / 196-foot Sarissa there, we are well acquainted with the shipyard’s engineering skills, innovations, and the level of craftsmanship.”

Details of the yacht’s interior have not been disclosed, but the design is being developed by GCA Architects of Barcelona, Spain.

Designer Josep Juanpere Miret has stated the yacht’s interior will complement the contemporary exterior styling and mix woods and other natural materials and textures for a relaxed yet luxurious atmosphere.

“The capabilities of Royal Huisman can be seen in various ways, with no doubt the most important proof point being that we are selected by knowledgeable owners as the builder for their incredible and unique yachts. I am pleased and humbled that we can highlight Royal Huisman’s 140th year of operation with the announcement of such a significant project,” said CEO Jan Timmerman.

“Of the hundreds of vessels our shipyard has delivered in its history, Project 411 will be our fourth yacht in the ranks of world’s top ten largest sailing yachts.”
