The 42.1 metre sailing yacht Hanuman has been listed for sale with Burgess.
With naval architecture by Dykstra, Hanuman was built in aluminium by Dutch yard Royal Huisman to a design by Charles E Nicholson and delivered in 2009 as a J-Class racing sloop, going on to enjoy notable success at the world’s J-Class regattas. Accommodation in a luxurious interior by Pieter Beeldsnijder is for six guests in three cabins comprising a master suite, double and a twin, all with en suite bathrooms, and there are crew quarters for eight staff aboard this yacht for sale.
The saloon/dining area is aglow with meticulously carved French walnut, polished in a 14-step process to satisfy the owner’s directive to imbue a very old world charm and artisanal feel. The design team used painstaking finishing methods developed almost 200 years ago to achieve a textured and tactile look and feel.
From the aft owner’s cabin all the way forward to the impressive carved forward bulkhead of the saloon and dining area, which incorporates an entertainment system and library, everything is symmetrical along a central axis.
Working within the J-Class historic hull lines and extremely low freeboard, Royal Huisman’s designers and architects used 3D systems engineering to ensure that all systems are accessible and serviceable. Under power, a 350hp Scania diesel engine yields a range of 1,800 nautical miles at 9 knots.
Currently in the western Mediterranean, Hanuman is asking $14,900,000.
