Blue Papillon is a 43m sailing yacht built by Royal Huisman in 2013 and designed by Germán Frers with interior design by Rhoades Young.

Germán Frers gave her a high-performance hull with a fixed keel and a deckhouse witha low profile. The yacht is easy to sail with a minimal crew of two thanks to carbon fiber rig with a furling system by Rondal.

Blue Papillon has three cockpits and an extended roof over the main cockpit to give shade. The owner’s cockpit at the aft deck has a retractable tarpaulin for some extra privacy when the crew is doing her job. Also, a large sun bed is located there.

Because the transom door is closed we don’t see the “beach deck”. A fold-down platform with staircase to enjoy the time at anchor.

Blue Papillon has a clean flush deck. Many parts are recessed like the hatches and their hinges. She is also equipped with a swing-over anchor system.

A 4.5m tender is stored in the lazarette. Another can find a place on the foredeck.
