Dutch shipbuilder Royal Huisman has launched the construction of the world’s largest aluminium yacht at its facilities in Vollenhove.
The 81-meter-long vessel, which is being built for an Asian client, is a joint effort of Royal Huisman, Dykstra Naval Architects, designer Mark Whiteley and Bart Kimman of Northrop & Johnson Asia, unveiled at the 2016 Monaco Yacht Show.
Royal Huisman said that the keel is laid and the building frame for the main deck is under construction. The build of the world’s largest aluminium yacht has started!
Within a year Royal Huisman completed the design phase, the construction planning and a large part of the engineering for this iconic yacht – all in close interaction with the owner, his team and the architects.
Royal Huisman’s largest shipbuilding hall was upgraded in preparation for the new project.
