Royal Huisman has announced the signing of PROJECT PHI, a 55m/180ft luxury yacht conceived by Cor D. Rover implementing an imposing hull and superstructure in matching gloss black paint and slanting angles from bow to stern.
Naval architecture will be completed by Van Oossanen Naval Architects and the interiors are to be styled by Lawson Robb. Van Oossanen specially developed the Fast Displacement XL ® hull form for the experienced owner, who spoke with the shipyard over several years to create a powerful superyacht that remains under the 500 GT mark.
The name ‘Phi’ comes from the Golden Ratio, a formula to create continual natural proportions and shapes throughout the design. This has been carried over from her exteriors to her interiors and her technical engineering which will use the expertise of a sailing yacht building team for simplicity in operation and maintenance while providing top of the range performance.
Specification details reveal that PROJECT PHI’s engines are capable of 22 knots at top speed, while her accommodation is designed for up to 12 guests and 11 crew. She has a delivery set for 2021 when she will surely be one of the most anticipated superyachts of the year.
