Royal Huisman to build 47m classic ketch with plumb bow


Based on the striking profile of early pilot cutters, this elegant 47m ketch (53.75m with bowsprit) combines classic traditional lines – including plumb bow and elegant counter stern – with an invigorating aptitude for performance and fast passage making.

The elegant lines are drawn by Gerard Dykstra and Partners, whose expertise in performance-orientated classic yachts is arguably second to none. They have married sympathetic period features such as gentle sheer, open deck space, neatly-proportioned deckhouses and skylights, above the waterline, with a modern, easily driven hull shape below. The canoe underbody sports a fully ballasted lifting keel, carbon spade rudder and low wettedsurface areas.

With her Alustar hull and tall carbon spars, this will be a lightweight yacht whose seakeeping and performance will be complemented by style, comfort and amenity below. Rhoades Young Design will draw upon classic references and traditional craftsmanship for a mellow and invitingly luxurious interior.
