Royal Huisman - a Tradition of Sailing Yachts

Royal Huisman Yachts is a Dutch superyacht building company based in The Netherlands, which builds luxury yacht - in particular sailing yachts. In fact Royal Husiman has launched some of the most important sailing yachts of our time, including S/Y Twizzle, Ethereal and Athena.

Royal Huisman was first established way back in 1884 when it was bestowed the Royal Warrant in 1984. The yacht building company is a highly respected, family-owned, custom superyacht builder. The yard is proud of its Dutch maritime heritage and its ability to push the boundaries of new technologies, systems and processes.

It is also proud of its understanding of the harsh marine environment in which these yachting innovations must perform. Within the company there is a strong emphasis on personal relation­ships and ethical behaviour and dedication to perfection.

Royal Huisman is located at the geographical heart of Holland’s concentration of world-leading specialists in maritime industries. This enables the yard to combine the merits of its own exceptional infrastructure and skills base with the latest advances and finest expertise of these specialists.

Royal Huisman builds unique custom yachts, from 30m - 90m / 100 – 300ft, for a very discerning clientele. The fabrication process takes place in a 30,000 m2 purpose-built shipyard where advanced technologies complement the finest traditional Dutch craftsman­ship. The yard’s unique “Intelligent Engineering™” approach offers a flexible array of infrastructure, specialist skills and technologies rarely seen in the marine industry.
