Royal Huisman sailing yacht Spiip for sale
by Malcolm Maclean
The 34.17 metre sailing yacht Spiip has been listed for sale by Burgess.
Sloop-rigged, she was launched by Dutch builder Royal Huisman Shipyard in 2000 and fully refitted in 2018. Constructed in Alustar aluminium, she was built to ABS class for Hull and Systems for Pleasure Craft classification. Naval architecture comes from German Frers, with a contemporary styled interior by the UK's Andrew Winch Design Group.
Spiip is equipped with a carbon rig and in boom furling system from Martin Marine and she has a clean, simple deck arrangement with a self-tacking jib. Her keel has been developed using computational fluid dynamics analysis and she has a daggerboard that protrudes from within the bulb, increasing draft from 12.8’ to 19.00’, thereby maximizing upwind performance.
In keeping with her philosophy of simplicity her twin wheel steering stations feature consoles that can be rotated to give the helms person glare free viewing and arms-length control of hydraulic sail functions, navigation and the operational information.
The light and airy interior of this yacht for sale includes dining and seating areas, together with an inside steering station, all on one level. Accommodation is for six guests and two identical guest cabins aft lead through a central corridor to the owner's expansive cabin which includes a large his and hers walk in wardrobe and his and hers bathrooms.
The main galley features granite counters and all stainless steel cabinetry. A large crew dinette leads off to the engine room entrance that allows operations to carry on without disturbance to the guest living areas. Under power, her top speed is 11 knots and she boasts a maximum cruising range of 2,100 nautical miles at 9 knots with power coming from a 415hp MTU 6R183TE72 diesel engine.
Spiip is asking €6,950,000.
