Build has begun on the world’s largest aluminium yacht

Following the unveiling of Project 400 at the 2016 Monaco Yacht Show, the yacht, under construction at Royal Huisman, now has the keel laid and the building frame for the main deck is under construction.

The exterior design was completed by Dykstra Naval Architects in partnership with Mark Whiteley and is set to be an iconic looking yacht.

The design skilfully incorporates all the owner’s requirements – world cruising, speed and comfort. The superstructure features a half-raised bridge for inside steering and the yacht’s flybridge offers full controls during sailing, comfortable seating for guests wishing to be close to the navigation, as well as areas for sunbathing.

Mark Whiteley has designed a modern interior in perfect balance with the exterior living spaces. The design utilises Oak and Alpi Walnut; a high quality and sustainable natural material; throughout. The interior offers a supreme level of comfort for the owner, family and friends. The forward part of the superstructure has been reserved for the owner and his guests, featuring a combined saloon with comfortable seating and a large table with sixteen seats for more formal dining.

The model of this Contemporary Schooner – world’s largest aluminium yacht – will be on display for the first time ever: Monaco Yacht Show, 27-30 September 2017, Royal Huisman stand at Quai des Etats-Unis, QE14. She will be the largest aluminium yacht in the world when she is delivered in 2020.
