Sponsor Story: The Spirit of Individuality with Royal Huisman

For the team at Royal Huisman, their goal is simple. To create beautiful custom yachts, always tailored to the individual client. Founded in 1884, the yard has evolved from building wooden working boats to become an award-winning superyacht builder with more than 330 craftsmen and women on the team. With a reputation for breaking the mould, their yachts are an extraordinary blend of 21st century technology and innovation, traditional craftsmanship and timeless value.

Part of the evolution of many of Royal Huisman’s yacht designs has been a growing thirst for adventure amongst their owners, with more and more clients seeking yachts that are crafted for exploring the world. The yard has relished the challenge of creating yachts that are able to see and experience the world in a new way. 

“Sailors tend to be adventurous people with a curiosity to see the world: individuals who know instinctively that the best possible way to encounter the wonders of the planet is by sea. Better still, from aboard your own yacht,” says the yard. “Despite this the Mediterranean and the Caribbean remain among the most popular sailing destinations for cruising yachtsmen. Yet the rewards of more distant regions can be so exceptional that the effort of reaching them will be repaid many times over, throughout a lifetime. We are increasingly seeing this belief reflected in the visions of our clients. So many of our owners enjoy global sailing and many of our yachts have undertaken thousands of miles to all corners of the world. New Zealand, the North West Passage, Alaska, Asia, the Galapagos and more.”

As a fully custom yard, Royal Huisman prides itself on creating yachts that match these discerning individuals with exceptional expectations. Understanding the evolving ways that owners use, engage with and experience their yachts is at the heart of the yard’s approach, and what helps Royal Huisman to keep yachts that lead the market.  

Above all, no matter what the brief of each client, they Royal Huisman team relishes the challenge of building projects that are truly unique. Their tag line says it all.

“If you can dream it, we can build it.”
