Royal Huisman and Vripack Yacht Design unveiled the design of their Project 406 sportfishing yacht.
The 171-foot yacht was designed by Vripack, working with the Netherlands-based Royal Huisman yard. Aqua Marine manages the project, with support from UAE-based Bush and Noble Yacht Brokers and U.K.-based Hampshire Marine yacht consultants.
“The Royal Huisman team likes nothing better than the opportunity to solve fresh engineering challenges, especially if they come in the shape of a unique project concept. The world’s first true sportfish superyacht is a very exciting order,” Royal Huisman CEO Jan Timmerman said in a statement.
The hull and superstructure will be built of Alustar aluminum.
“Project 406 is a sportfisher on steroids,” said Vripack co-creative director Bart M. Bouwhuis. “It has the true proportions and long flaring bow of a typical American sportfish boat, paired with the harmonious feel of a luxurious superyacht.”
