Written by Rebecca Smurthwaite

The highly-anticipated Royal Huisman 58.5-metre Project Phi has finally been unveiled in Vollenhove, the Netherlands. Phi has been undergoing final outfitting in her shed over the last few months, and is now preparing to be launched.Phi yacht in Royal Huisman’s facility in VollenhoveThe custom yacht features exterior design by Cor D. Rover and interior styling by Lawson Robb, and has been constructed for an experienced yachtsman who was very involved in the design and build process. Her all-aluminium hull and superstructure is the work of Van Oossanen Naval Architects.Phi yacht in Royal Huisman’s facility in VollenhovePhi yacht launch at Royal HuismanPhoto: Charl van Rooy / SuperYacht TimesPhi features various innovative design features including curved sleek lines, with her hull inspiration coming from the hood of a cobra to give a menacing appearance. A defining feature is her glass-fronted ‘nooks’ in the bulwarks on her bridge deck and owner’s deck that can be used as recliners. Phi’s main deck aft swimming pool is just under 7-metres in length and can be filled with fresh or sea water. Cor D. Rover designed the floor of the pool to be maneuverable to cover the pool when underway.Phi yacht in Royal Huisman's facility in VollenhovePhi yacht in Royal Huisman's facility in VollenhovePhi’s philosophy is focused on three elements: the galaxy, the ocean surface and the underwater world. Her interior details are yet to be revealed. The owner’s representative, Guy Booth, commented, “All of us involved in the creation of Phi feel a sense of privilege to have had the opportunity to contribute to this innovative project. The co-operation between the owner’s team, the architects, the designers and everyone at Royal Huisman has been exceptional. We can be justifiably proud of what we have achieved.”Phi yacht launch at Royal HuismanPhoto: Charl van Rooy / SuperYacht TimesPhi yacht in Royal Huisman's facility in VollenhovePhi yacht in Royal Huisman's facility in VollenhovePhi is scheduled for delivery later this year and will be accompanied by her matching 36-metre shadow vessel, Phi Phantom, launched earlier this year by Alia Yachts.
