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.

Project Marlin Royal Huisman

Project Marlin (49m) by Royal Huisman

Royal Huisman's Project Marlin is a classy 49m gentleman cruiser with exterior design by Germán Frers and interior design by Stirling & co.

This retro yacht project (that is also for sale) welcomes ten guests in five cabins and a crew of ten persons and is under 500 GT. The draft of 1.93m allows sailing in shallow waters like smaller ports or anchor bays.

Tender storage is aft together with a fold-out bathing platform. The crew has an own ladderway on the foredeck to the crew area.

Oliver Stirling of Stirling & Co says:

[…]We feel that an owner of a yacht that embraces the glamorous, romantic personality of the exterior would have classic but modern taste. We feel this owner would want a restrained, sophisticated ‘haute couture’ interior combining contemporary intelligent beauty with the aesthetics of classic proportions to suit the lifestyle of 21st-century cruising, inspired by an earlier glamorous era of yachting.

So, the challenge has been to create an interior that will seamlessly integrate with the calm, timeless elegance of Germán’s graceful sheerline and restrained exterior, pairing future technology with elements of the past.[…]

Stirling furthermore:

[…]So, with a portfolio of some of the most famous award-winning yachts ever built, Royal Huisman, with their hallmark of meticulous attention to detail, undoubtedly have precisely the right pedigree to build a yacht of this caliber, to the highest standards of modern comfort, technology and safety.

In MARLIN we have breathed new life into an iconic motor yacht genre. We have re-imagined a classic for a new era in an understated, sophisticated ‘sporty chic’ manner.

Inspired by a forward-thinking and discerning Owner, the design team and build team look forward to collaborating to bring the exceptional vision of Project MARLIN into life.”

DART 65 by Royal Huisman

DART 65 by Royal Huisman and Winch Design

Sleek, sporty and elegant - that's the DART 65 by Royal Huisman - inspired by dolphins.

DART 65 (65m / 213 ft.) is a concept that looks different than the ‘mainstream’ motor yachts, but still very elegant and luxurious. London-based design studio Winch Design created the exterior design. An eye-catching reverse bow and an arc line complete the great profile. Azure Naval Architects made the calculation.

The DART 65 welcomes 12 guests on her three decks. A big pool and lounge area are located aft on the main deck. During times in marinas, the foredeck offers much space with sunbathing area and jacuzzi with more privacy.

The owner lives on the main deck in his own full-beam suite with dressing and bathroom. In addition to the owner’s suite is the main deck the place of a big lounge area, dining for up to 12 people and a bar. The tender storage is under the foredeck

My personal résumé: Build that! It is a bracing design.
