Superyacht Blue Papillon under construction at Royal Huisman

Superyacht Blue Papillon under construction at Royal Huisman

The prestigious Dutch yard Royal Huisman shares more details about their latest order, the 43.31m sailing yacht Blue Papillon.

With a contract signed last year, the construction of the all-aluminium Blue Papillon started at the end of 2010. She's a contemporary but ageless sloop with a low profile deckhouse. The Argentine designer German Frers is responsible for the exterior design, while the interior is styled by Rhoades Young Design.

The interior accommodates eight guests. The full-beam master suite aft is linked outside to a private cockpit making this area a real beach deck thanks to a retractable bathing platform. The other guest cabins are a double and a twin aft and a convertible one forward of the deckhouse.

On the technical side below the waterline, Blue Papillon has a moderate fixed bulb keel and a deep carbon rudder. Above, she will have a full carbon Rondal rig giving an air draft of 57.35m. The main engine will be a single 533kW Caterpillar C-18.

Blue Papillon is scheduled for a delivery in 2013.
