Royal Huisman unveiled Project 405 aka Nauta Reichel Pugh 151

Project 405 is a 46m lightweight sloop-rigged sailing yacht made of aluminum and carbon composite. Nauta Design delivered the exterior and the interior design while the speed specialists Reichel/Pugh made the calculations. Even the owner’s professional racing team was involved. The carbon-fiber rig by Royal Huisman’s subsidiary Rondal has a Panamax height to cross the Panama Canal. The owner’s brief calls for a comfortable yacht with the potential to win superyacht regattas.

“And the owners did not just want to take delivery of such an intriguing yacht; they wanted to be part of the whole process of designing and building it, and enjoy every step of the way. Which is why from the moment of the project’s inception, the owners drew together the team that could realize this experience for them”

The yacht accommodates ten guests including the owners and a crew of eight people.
