Royal Huisman announces 59.7m sailing yacht Project 404
by Zoe Dickens
While few details and only a basic sketch of the high-performance sloop have been released so far, it is known that naval architecture and exterior design will be by Malcolm McKeon Yacht Design while interiors will be undertaken by Liaigre. The project has already been sold with Gregory Monks representing the owner.
Project 404 will feature an Alustar aluminium hull and low-profile carbon composite superstructure with an integrated rig package from Southern Spars to be complemented by Rondal captive winches.
Modern technology will be at the forefront of this new build with Royal Huisman promising to leave “no technological stone unturned” in the pursuit of “a sleek and powerful sailing yacht of iconic, imaginative design which will marry unprecedented performance with luxurious and innovative amenities.”
Scheduled for a 2022 delivery, accommodation on board Project 404 will be for 12 guests and 10 crew.
