Royal Huisman reveals Frers Design sailing superyacht concept
by Miranda Blazeby
Royal Huisman has joined forces with Frers Design to collaborate on a new sailing superyacht design concept called PURA.
The superyacht is available in varying lengths from 38 metres - 43 metres and is focused on customisation. The yacht comes with 80% of the engineering completed, with the rest of the design completed to the owner’s specifications and tastes.
The completed engineering includes the propulsion, power generation, security systems and hydraulics, as well as the mast, rig, sail plan and sail handling.
Meanwhile the hull, deck and superstructure are customisable, with architect Mani Frers providing owners with drawings of different bow and stern profiles based on their input. Three different versions are available; classic, modern and retro as well as additional customisable options.
The interior is also customisable to the owner’s desires, with Royal Huisman describing it as a “blank canvas for whatever design theme catches the owner’s imagination”.
Accommodation is for a maximum of eight guests, spanning an owner’s cabin and three twin guest cabins, one of which is convertible into a double. There are three crew cabins for a staff of six. Various accommodation layouts are available placing the owner’s cabin fore and aft.
