It was the charm and character of this small bespoke yard in the heart of the historic city of Monnickendam that drew them in, and they decided that this is where they can create something truly unique. The result has exceeded all of our expectations. We are exceptionally proud that Top Five II is the first Royal Hakvoort yacht delivered after receiving its Royal designation. The yacht is a culmination of their 101-year shipbuilding history as well as serving as the springboard for excellence for the next 100 years."Top Five II yacht cruisingPhoto: Tom van OossanenTop Five II was built by Royal Hakvoort Shipyard in the Netherlands and features both interior and exterior design by Sinot Yacht Architecture & Design. Her naval architecture was completed by Diana Yacht Design. She is built with an ice-class reinforced hull, providing her with true explorer capabilities.

Many subtle details make the interior rich and desirable. The neutral material palette, outstanding marble selections and rich fabrics with some Japanese design influences create her character.”Top Five II yacht by Royal Hakvoort Shipyard sea trialsPhoto: Charl van Rooy / SuperYacht TimesOn both the main and owner’s decks, she has an impressive ceiling height of 2.4-metres.
