Sailing yacht Pumula launched by Royal Huisman
by Raphael Montigneaux
The prestigious Dutch yard Royal Huisman has launched its latest yacht, the 37.33 metre Pumula, previously known under its project name Bugamena (hull 390).
Built in aluminium, Pumula is a classic cutter-rigged sloop with modern naval architecture by Gerard Dykstra & Partners and a fully ballasted and retractable bulb keel.
The classic-style interior is by Rhoades Young Design, with a layout that accommodates eight guests in a double cabin, two twins and a master suite with a private deckhouse and access to an owner's cockpit.
Lloyd's registered and MCA compliant, Pumula has a 42.8 metre Rondal carbon mast, and in case of light wind, she's powered by a 331kW Scania engine giving a top speed of 12.5 knots.
Pumula will be delivered this spring.
