Home » From vision to concept: mockup of Royal Huisman project 405

From vision to concept & From concept to realization: an intriguing look behind the busy scenes at Royal Huisman’s shipyard reveals this: the impressive full-scale mockup for the 46m high-performance cruiser sloop “Reichel / Pugh – Nauta 151”, which started construction this month. This versatile sailing yacht is designed and built for very experienced Owners who presented a stimulating brief: comfort and safety to explore the world, in an extremely lightweight structure to ensure victories in superyacht regattas.
.
Mario Pedol of Nauta Design: “…Our early intuition was that an aluminium construction sailing yacht could be much lighter than the existing aluminium fleet. Royal Huisman supported this vision with enthusiasm and accepted the challenge. Extensive research work and calculations, confirmed our initial thought.”
.
Bouwe Bekking – eight times Volvo Ocean Race competitor and representing the Owners’ race team adds: “The hull construction will be ‘featherlight’… Formidable competition to existing carbon composite superyachts during regattas.” Owner’s representative Nigel Ingram concludes: “In addition, Project 405 will offer all the benefits associated with existing Royal Huisman yachts: comfort, low sound levels and optimal world cruising characteristics. All good news to the Owners, who anticipate exploring the world in their new yacht”
