Fleurtje | 52.73m (173')

Built in 1960 ,Netherlands

Designed by Robert Clark, Fleurtje was built in 1960 at the renowned Dutch shipyard of De Vries Lentsch. She was previously known as Carita and then Argonaftis.

At 57 metres this sailing yacht has extremely elegant lines. The long overhangs at bow and stern, the rich Awlgrip blue hull and three Douglas Fir masts with stay sail plan, combine into a handsome profile.

Since her launch, Fleurtje has undergone four refits and been maintained to Lloyds class standards. Such is the degree of ongoing improvements that she is now, certainly, one of the finest three-masted schooners afloat, accommodating 12 guests in six staterooms.

Drumbeat | 53m 173′11″

Built in 2002 ,New Zealand

Built by Alloy Yachts in 2002 and designed by Dubois Naval Architects, the 53 metre Drumbeat easily met her owner’s requirement to combine good sailing performance with comfort, sea worthiness and space.

A unique design feature of the large sailing yacht is the layout on one level from cockpit through the saloon and dining area to the forward wheelhouse. This creates an expansive area for entertaining.

In 2005 the interior was redesigned to reflect the simplicity and beauty of the lines of this stunning sailing yacht. The colours, materials and furniture are designed for comfort. Lighting has been brought to the highest standard, giving the option of setting the appropriate mood to the saloon and throughout the yacht. The overall feeling is one of casual elegance for 10 guests in five staterooms.

Nirvana | 53.5m 175′6″

Built in 2007 ,Netherlands

Nirvana takes advantage of a large fly bridge sailing yacht experience but has an added, particularly interesting feature: a total draft of no more than three metres.

This has been achieved by developing a full-bodied hull form with generous beam, high ballast ratio and a pivoting centreboard to take the draft to 10 metres when fully deployed. This high aspect ratio foil gives efficient upwind performance, while the combination of generous beam and high ballast ratio gives excellent stability.

Adèle | 54.6m 179′1″

Built in 2005 ,Netherlands

Adèle is an exquisite 55 metre vessel designed by Andre Hoek and currently the 36th largest sailing yacht in the world. Her profile, deck layout and interior design are those of a classic ketch, but her all-aluminium construction, her carbon fibre masts and booms, modern rigging and sleek underbody assure superior performance.

Adèle has two guest staterooms forward of the lower saloon and dining area, as well as two aft. Nearer the stern is the master suite, laid out in an innovative arrangement that wraps around the base of the mizzen mast. The suite has a small library with settee and table, and a centerline companionway leads aft to a private cockpit.

Royal Huisman carried out a winter refit on Adèle in 2016, which included a systems overhaul, new teak decking and a fresh coast of paint on her bright red hull.
