Earlier this week the sales team of Y.CO listed the 90 metre sailing yacht Athena for sale and now they have listed another Royal Huisman sailing yacht for sale, the J-Class Hanuman. Asking $ 18,000,000, Hanuman is the modern recreation of Tommy Sopwith’s beautiful 41.3m/135.5’ “Super-J” class yacht, Endeavour II.
Winner of the World Superyacht Awards 2010 as “Sailing Yacht of the Year” and joint winner as “Best Sailing Yacht 30m-44m”, Hanuman is the excellent combination of beauty and extremely high quality of construction.
Naval architects Gerard Dykstra & Partners have overseen the build of the Hanuman’s hull in Alustar, with spars and rig in carbon composite to create a yacht that demonstrates the full potential of Charles E Nicholson’s original design. To further this ambition, Royal Huisman has worked with the naval architects, the independent Carew Group, master sailmakers North Sails and spar makers Rondal to create the optimum mast and sail configuration as, in effect, a single wing unit.
Hanuman is currently lying in Newport, Rhode Island and available for viewing.
