The construction of the 81m / 266ft contemporary three-masted schooner has started at the Royal Huisman facilities in Vollenhove. This new build project for an Asian client was unveiled by the joint team of Royal Huisman, Dykstra Naval Architects, Mark Whiteley design and Bart Kimman of Northrop & Johnson Asia at the 2016 Monaco Yacht Show.
Good performance combined with sea kindliness, stability and comfort. Dykstra Naval Architects have focused all their considerable expertise on the creation of a hull with a distinguishing hard chine and schooner rig that combines good performance with sea kindliness, stability and comfort. The carbon rig – 'clearing Panama Bridge' – will be supported by carbon standing rigging. Thys Nikkels of Dykstra Naval Architects explains "the plumb bow, very long waterline, sleek hull and large sail area will give the yacht the required high speed and good performance." Towing tests, wind tunnel tests, Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) calculations and a Velocity Prediction Program are all undertaken to evaluate the sail balance, keel position and rudder angles when under sail.Read More
