Royal Huisman sent out a secretive teaser of their upcoming project PHI - a 55m radical styled fast-displacement motor yacht.

Project PHI (the golden ratio) has an exterior design by Cor D. Rover and an interior design by Lawson Robb. The naval architecture comes from Van Oossanen and features the patented Fast Displacement XL platform and will reach speeds up to 22 knots.

The full-aluminum yacht will be equipped with gyro stabilizers and has a GT of under 500. Up to twelve guests can enjoy the yacht; a crew of eleven will serve guests and yacht.

Charlotte Robb comments:

“This is an extraordinary project, an extraordinary client and team with an extraordinary vision. We are extremely excited to work with such an inspirational team in creating a truly unique home away from home and setting a new bar for yacht design.”

Technical Director Jaap Gelling of Royal Huisman comments:

“The Phi-team approached Royal Huisman because the client was looking for a yard renowned for its great dedication and ability to realize this yacht with its inherent challenges, staying within the definition of Phi. With its long-standing experience building custom sailing superyachts renowned for their technical innovation and reliability, as well as overall quality, Royal Huisman have developed highly sophisticated design engineering and space planning capabilities and is therefore able to meet any space management challenges  – after all this ability lies at the very heart of building large sailing-superyachts.

Needless to say that Phi is an exciting project for our shipyard. Royal Huisman’s mantra has always been: ’If you can dream it, we can build it’ and we are looking forward to demonstrating just how well we will do exactly that.”

Delivery to the experienced owner is in 2021.
