"Build me my dream"
To hear a client saying these words is – without a doubt – a dream come true for any yacht designer and builder. Dykstra Naval Architects was therefore delighted to be recently commissioned by an Asian client to design a truly breathtaking contemporary three-masted schooner. The client's dream has an impressive overall length of 81m / 266ft and a plumb bow, making her not only powerful and recognizable all over the world, she is also the largest yacht yet to be built at the Royal Huisman shipyard in Vollenhove and ranked in the top 10 of the world's largest sailing yachts: by any measure a superyacht destined for greatness. Together with Royal Huisman, designer Mark Whiteley and regional liaison Bart Kimman of Northrop & Johnson Asia. Dykstra Naval Architects will make this dream-yacht become reality.
This contemporary schooner has been officially revealed at the 2016 Monaco Yacht Show by the design and build team.
From 28 September - October 1st we will be exhibiting at the Monaco Yacht Show.
With our stand at one of the premium spots of the show, Qui des etats unis at QE13, we hope to welcome you there.

It has been with great sadness to hear that Tom Perkins passed away. He was an exceptional visionary, a great yachtsman.
Gerard Dykstra quotes: "The time when Maltese Falcon was built and the Dynarig was developed, has been one of the best times of my live. It was a pleasure working for and with Tom. It was his common sense, his risk assessment, his seamanship and his feeling for technical matters which kept us on track and which put a sound foundation under what could easily have developed into a pipe dream.
It is seldom that one gets the chance to work on such an innovative project and in such good harmony.
Tom thank you for your trust in our office, we will miss you!'Read More
