Royal Huisman works on a 59.7m sloop-rigged Malcolm McKeon-designed sailing yacht.

This 60m sloop will be incredible. During the superyacht press tour 2019, organized by the Yachting Holland Group, Royal Huisman showed us the 1:1 mockup of the Malcolm McKeon design made of plywood of the rear half of yacht, including the furniture of the deck salon – absolutely impressive. Unfortunately, only this profile sketch as a little teaser is allowed to show, but you can see the very modern lines.

The hull of the high-performance sloop will be constructed in Alustar aluminum while a superstructure of carbon fiber is on top. Retractable propulsion offers less water resistance.

RH404 accommodates twelve guests and a crew of 10 and is designed to meet the requirements of Lloyd’s Register – Maritime & Coastguard Agency (MCA). Southern Spars delivers the integrated rig.
