Meteor ready for delivery

New-Build

The latest superyacht from Royal Huisman, Meteor, is almost ready for on time delivery to take part in The Superyacht Cup. On April 11 the gaff rigged schooner was transported from the shipyard in Vollenhove through the locks of Ijmuiden to Harlingen.

The design of Meteor was done in collaboration between John G Alden design and Gerard Dijkstra and Partners. The classic interior is from the office of John Munford and features a beautiful wooden fireplace.

Once she is completely finished she will set sail to the Mediterranean for the Superyacht Cup in Palma and the America’s Cup in Valencia.

The following photos of Meteor were provided by Ruud Burgers.
