Royal Huisman building largest ever yacht Project 400

Royal Huisman announced today (28 September) at Monaco Yacht Show that it is building its largest ever yacht for an Asian owner. Project 400 will measure 81 metres, and will become one of the largest sailing yachts in the world after her 2020 delivery.

“The owner came to us and said 'please build me my dream' and that's when we got to work,” the yard said.

The three-master performance schooner will feature a plumb bow and be built in aluminium to Lloyds MCA (LY-3) class. She will accommodate 12 guests and 13 crew.

It’s not known if her owner will race it, but Project 400 has great potential if he does.

“It may look like a contemporary modern sailing yacht now but in 50 years time it will be a classic,” said Dykstra Naval Architects who were responsible for the naval architecture, as well as the exterior styling with Mark Whiteley Design.

This was echoed by Mark Whiteley, also responsible for the interior, who said she “has a timeless, classic profile with a clean, modern interior”. “It's a yacht that will never go out of style,” he added.

The build of Project 400 is managed by Northrop & Johnson. “They just felt like the perfect partners to do this with,” Royal Huisman said.
