Dutch yard Royal Huisman has unveiled its latest sailing superyacht in development for this year's Monaco Yacht Show: the 88-metre twin-mast Dyna-Rig Project Lotus. The project is designed by the British studio, ThirtyC Design, with naval architecture by the creators of the innovative DynaRig, Dutch studio Dykstra Naval Architects.
This revelation of Project Lotus was combined with the unveiling of a 70-metre motor Support Vessel, which will accompany Lotus in order to "bridge[...] the gap between the experience of sailing and the adventure of the motor yacht lifestyle," according to the yard.
In a statement, the yard commented that the project is, “designed for the family who seeks life without compromise, the combination of dual-mast DynaRig sailing yacht and rugged support vessel offers unbridled freedom for both the journey and the destination.”Photo: Royal HuismanPhoto: Royal Huisman
