Royal Huisman's largest yacht launched: 81m Sea Eagle II

Written by Laura Nicholls

Royal Huisman has launched their largest vessel to date, the 81-metre schooner Sea Eagle II from their main construction shed, which the Dutch shipyard specially extended for the project. Built for repeat client Dr Samuel Yin, a prominent Taiwanese businessman and philanthropist, Sea Eagle II exceeds the owner's previous yacht, Sea Eagle, by around 37 metres and over 800 GT.   81m Sea Eagle II yacht launchPhoto: Tom van Oossanen81m Sea Eagle II yacht launchPhoto: Tom van OossanenSea Eagle II yacht hull detailPhoto: Priska van der MeulenSet to be one of the largest sailing yachts in the world, the 1,150 GT superyacht features naval architecture and an exterior design by Dykstra Naval Architects and an interior design undertaken by Mark Whiteley Design. First introduced at the Monaco Yacht Show 2016, within a year Royal Huisman completed the design phase in close collaboration with the owner and his team and proceeded with turning the hull in early 2018. 81m Sea Eagle II yacht launchPhoto: Tom van Oossanen81m Sea Eagle II yacht launchPhoto: Tom van OossanenSporting a raised pilothouse and the helm stations on the flybridge, all 12 guests of Sea Eagle II can make use of the formal dining room/lounge on the main deck forward and be accommodated for across six staterooms, including a VIP suite for the owner. The interior decor is to be 'tastefully low-key' with accents of sustainable materials such as oak and Alpi walnut.81m Sea Eagle II yacht launchPhoto: Tom van OossanenSea Eagle II yacht ready to launch at Royal HuismanPhoto: Tom van OossanenTo reduce weight and increase performance, the owner has opted for carbon fibre masts, which measure over 60 metres, and continuous Carbo-Link rigging. The main mast on Sea Eagle II is also fitted with a crow’s nest operated by a hydraulic captive winch. Her four-metre tall rudder is the largest ever built out of carbon composite.
