Royal Huisman destined for growth with latest Sloop completion
Vollenhove, Netherlands – Press Release
The Team at Royal Huisman is proud to announce that Sea Eagle, the 43m / 142ft sloop with naval architecture by Germán Frers and interior design by Rhoades Young, has left the yard in Vollenhove as scheduled.
Following the stepping of her mast and some weeks of sea trials in the North Sea, she will be delivered to her owner, an experienced offshore sailor from Taiwan. Designed and engineered to meet the owner’s plans to cruise the world whilst participating in the occasional superyacht regatta along the way, Sea Eagle is as stylish as she is performance oriented.
With her shimmering Dark Blue hull and Chevy White superstructure glistening in the bright sunshine Sea Eagle emerged from the shipyards number two paint hall, the last yacht to do so before building extensions and new investments get underway this summer.
The sale of Sea Eagle is the direct result of the shipyard’s long-term commitment to developing business opportunities in South East Asia, ably assisted by Regional Liaison Bart J. Kimman, director of Northrop & Johnson Asia, who merged the interests of client and shipyard to help bring this exciting project to fruition.
Gaining this important foot hold in the region, Royal Huisman continues to build a following among well-informed and aspirational business leaders in the SE Asian region with the expectation for greater interest from this region in the future.
Reinforcing his trust and support in the Shipyard, Sea Eagle’s owner, Dr. Samuel Yin, has offered his full support, allowing the yacht to be available for presentations at various worldwide yachting events inclusive his home waters in South East Asia. Viewed by Royal Huisman as a huge honor, not taken lightly this opportunity allows the yard to demonstrate what the brand represents: the pinnacle of Dutch quality in superyacht building and the clear distinction between ‘what looks good’ and ‘what seriously is good’ in superyacht building”.
Sea Eagle is the last yacht to leave the climate-controlled paint hall before work begins to increase capacity both here and in the neighboring hall. When extensions are complete in the autumn, the expectation is for an increased workflow between construction and the all-important component of yacht finishing where yachts of up to 90m / 300ft can be housed in one hall and up to 60m / 200ft in another three. Both paint halls are complete with high intensity lighting, air flow, temperature and humidity controls exceeding the stringent requirements of all major paint manufacturers.
