Completing a successful series of sea trials on the North Sea, superyacht Sea Eagle II is nearing delivery to her experienced owner with an official handover expected to take place next month. The 81-metre three-masted schooner is the work of Royal Huisman in the Netherlands who joined forces with Dykstra Naval Architects and designer Mark Whiteley to create the world’s largest aluminium sailing yacht at 1,150 GT.Photo: Tom van Oossanen
The yacht’s impressive 3,500 square metres of sails and carbon Panamax rig by Rondal was tested to its limits over several days at sea in various wind conditions. The sail plan is controlled by 34 winches around the boat, the largest of which is capable of pulling up to 18 tons. Sea Eagle II is capable of reaching speed in excess of 21 knots for an exhilarating and sustainable cruising experience. Photo: Tom van OossanenPhoto: Tom van Oossanen

Up to 12 guests can be accommodated for across six staterooms, including a VIP suite for the owner.Photo: RondalPhoto: Tom van Oossanen
