About Royal Huisman

In an era of mass production and throw-away values, Royal Huisman holds the torch for the finest custom engineering and craftsmanship. Its mission is to create exceptional yachts –whether classic or modern, sail or motor – for individuals with a distinctive vision and uncompromising standards. Royal Huisman takes pride in building and refitting unique custom yachts with a focus on quality rather than quantity—yachts that are consistently ranked as the world’s finest. 

Sample Projects: 

•    Gliss – 32m sloop rigged performance sailing yacht 
•    Blue Papillon – 43m high performance ‘beach deck’ sloop 
•    Pumula – 37.33m classic cutter 
•    Kamaxitha – 48.97 Spirit of Tradition ketch 
•    Hanuman – 42.1m J-class sailing yacht 
•    Twizzle – 57.5m flybridge ketch 
•    Ethereal – 57m performance ketch 

Intelligent Engineering

It is no surprise that the makers of some of the world’s most exquisite yachts should be leaders in engineering and production techniques. Royal Huisman calls its approach “Intelligent Engineering”. 

Innovative Usage of Virtual Reality

Royal Huisman makes extensive usage of ShipConstructor’s tight integration with Autodesk Navisworks to create intelligent 3D Virtual Reality models which are used by Royal Huisman’s discerning customers to review the company’s designs. Royal Huisman has also led the industry by bringing Virtual Reality down onto the shop floor so that production workers can regularly “fly through” a realistic virtual model of what they are building. This innovative technique gives production workers a more realistic understanding of complex production scenarios.
