When the prestigious Dutch luxury yacht builder, Royal Huisman, established its custom refit service Huisfit in 2011, the goal was made clear. Huisfit would provide: “The perfect way to renovate, restore or maintain a fine yacht (Huisman build or otherwise) to the finest standards. Or to go a step further and enhance the yacht’s technical or lifestyle features as only the Huisman team know how.”
Huisfit refit: the 70m Lurssen megayacht Skat
The attraction of that proposition (and the leading edge customer support and service that go with it) has been made clear by the award of some highly impressive refit projects such as the 90m / 305ft sailing yacht Eos, the 40m / 132ft motor yacht Be Mine (ex Leonora) and, most recently, the 70.7m / 231ft motor yacht Skat. In total, the projects undertaken or secured during the past 12 months amount to a 322.5m (1055ft) in combined length overall*.
* The full 2011-2012 list: 70.7m Lürssen Skat, 23.8m Truly Classic sloop Heartbeat, 90m three-masted Lürssen schooner Eos, 40m Lürssen Be Mine, 21m classic motor yacht Nixe II, 36m Royal Huisman motor yacht Arcadia, 41m Royal Huisman sailing yacht William Tai.
This success stems from a high quality package that is recognized to be innovative, flexible and competitive:
• Access to Royal Huisman’s Intelligent Engineering™ process, bringing together the yard’s exceptional infrastructure, technology and skills with leading Dutch marine industry specialists to provide a bespoke solution for every refit project.
