New 65 m Performance Ketch Signed

The joint team of Dykstra Naval Architects, Royal Huisman and Mark Whiteley Design is delighted to announce the newbuild agreement for an exciting 65 m / 212ft performance ketch rigged sailing yacht. We have enjoyed an inspirational period of concept design and development with the experienced owners' team, the interior designer and builder. An important time to get the project ready for the next big step: the start of construction. One of the main areas of focus for this ketch rigged sailing yacht is the performance optimization, to get her all geared up for the superyacht regatta circuit.

CEO Thys Nikkels: "A great team to be working with on this exciting project, we sure can't wait to see her racing The St Barths Bucket!"
