Royal Huisman Project 406 is ready to leave Hall 2 of the shipyard’s newbuild facilities in Vollenhove for installation of her upper deck, sun awning hardtop and radarmast. This exceptional Alustar® aluminum motor yacht is the world’s largest true sportfish yacht, with her towering profile accommodating six decks, and her powerful hull measuring 52m/ 171ft overall. She is fitted out without compromise for both high end sportfishing and luxurious living.
Project 406 is a unique vessel in so many respects. Interior and exterior design and naval architecture come courtesy of the celebrated Vripack Yacht Design Studio. Her design is extremely distinctive, with a long bow and high bulwarks sweeping through a clear sheer to a low and uncluttered cockpit aft. The high tower offers outstanding views with a downward angle on the water for specialized fishing. Apart from its practical function, the tower also offers a superb viewing platform for guests, who can follow all the action below.
Not only is she the largest but, without doubt, the most bespoke, finely appointed, meticulously engineered and most impressive true sportfish yacht anywhere in the world – with all the amenities expected of a superyacht. Royal Huisman is viewed to be the only shipyard in the world capable of delivering such an individual and bespoke motoryacht project. Project 406 is immaculately and extensively engineered and efficiently built by the shipyard team of over 350 individual experts and highly qualified co-makers. The testing of most board systems and other innovative technical installations is currently nearing completion before her final transport, upcoming launch and trials.
