With the shipyard construction and test phases now complete, Royal Huisman moved its new 56-metre ketch-rigged sailing yacht Aquarius from the shipyard in Vollenhove to deeper waters where she will soon be christened and launched.
For this project Royal Huisman once again worked with Dykstra Naval Architects and interior designer Mark Whiteley. Her two carbon masts are built by Rondal with Doyle Sails New Zealand supplying the sails.
Project Manager Godfrey Cray oversaw the build project and conveyed a message on behalf of the owner to the build team, shipyard management and friends who attended the farewell ceremony: “I chose to build my boat at Royal Huisman because of the quality of your work, your attention to detail and the pride that all of you have in what you do.”
Stay tuned for more as we follow the project’s progress.
