Hull turning of 55m+ Project Phi in action at Royal Huisman

Written by Laura Nicholls

Royal Huisman made way for the 55-metre plus project Phi recently as the new superyacht was rolled out of her construction shed for the first time. The narrow and fuel-efficient hull was turned by four cranes, showing off the custom exterior design work of Cor D. Rover and naval architecture by Van Oossanen Naval Architects.

Once completed, the experienced owner will take delivery of Phi and her matching 36-metre support vessel during 2021. The support vessel is also designed by Cor D. Rover and Van Oossanen Naval Architects and is currently under construction in Asia.  Royal Huisman Project Phi in build in VollenhovePhoto: Royal HuismanRoyal Huisman Project Phi in build in VollenhovePhoto: Royal HuismanThe interior layout by Lawson Robb is designed to accommodate her two owners and up to 10 guests, along with 11 crew members. Sporting a Fast-Displacement XL® hull concept and engineered to remain within the sub-500GT category, Phi is to feature numerous technically innovative features and is set to reach a maximum speed of 22 knots. 

Royal Huisman is also constructing the world’s largest aluminium sailing yacht: the 81-metre three-masted schooner Project 400, and Project 404, the 59.7-metre performance sloop.
