Best Naval Architecture Sailing Yacht Award for Sea Eagle II

81 m SEA EAGLE II won "Best Naval Architecture Sailing Yachts" Award at Boat International's Design and Innovation Awards 2021.

Very proud of this achievement and many thanks and congratulations to the Owner of SEA EAGLE II and the whole project and built team including Royal Huisman and Mark Whiteley Design!

As described by Boat International:

Sea Eagle II
In the most intricately quantitative category, the numbers determined the two top candidates to be the ones most unalike, one a race-ready yacht and the other a cruising schooner. Surprisingly the science behind their designs, their hull and sail plan efficiencies and performance under power were very similar. While both are custom designs, Sea Eagle II was the more novel concept and presented the larger design and innovation, given the owner's brief and the loads and complexities associated with her size and 1,027-tonne displacement. She is not just a large cruising yacht with global capability but a beautiful boat that sails well.

Length: 81m
Naval Architect: Dykstra Naval Architects
Builder: Royal Huisman
Exterior Design: Dykstra Naval Architects / Mark Whiteley Design

A new project designed by Dykstra Naval Architects currently under construction at Turquoise Yachts in Turkey.

Measuring 51-meters, the Classic sloop Project Rainbow II is designed by Dykstra Naval Architects and will feature an interior designed by deVosdeVries design. Her long overhangs and elegant sheer line give her a distinct classic appearance, while the high bulwarks provide a safe and seaworthy feeling on deck. She features a main deckhouse saloon that will provide guests with sweeping views all around. The main cockpit offers a secure place to enjoy the sailing or offer ample space for al-fresco dining. The modern sloop rig results in efficient and good sailing performance, using 21st century technology to ensure easy and safe handling of the sails.
