PHI: a very UNIQUE motoryacht and optimized to the MAX. Lifting the veil on the radical, fast displacement aluminium motoryacht PHI, Royal Huisman is extremely proud to present the first images of PHI’s scale model.
Still under 500GT but measuring over 55m / 181ft in length, PHI is by many considered to be a great yacht building challenge. Yet, Royal Huisman has delivered over thirty low-profile sailing superyachts in recent history. Thus the shipyard has all the knowledge at hand. PHI offers significantly more exterior and semi-interior entertainment area on the aft deck than conventional designs and instead of a typical “wedding cake” silhouette, she will have a very sleek and appealing profile.
Exterior design by Cor D. Rover - interior design: Lawson Robb - naval architecture: Van Oossanen Naval Architects | Fast Displacement XL - project management / Owner’s representative: Guy Booth - builder: Royal Huisman - accommodation: 2 Owners, 10 guests and 11 crew - length overall: 55m+ / 180ft+ - gross tonnage: below 500 GT - speed: approximately 22 knots - construction: aluminum - classification: ABS & MCA - year of delivery: 2021
Her captain Josh Luckhurst comments: “The cooperation between the Royal Huisman team and the HANUMAN crew has been the highlight of this 5 month period. Together we have achieved an incredible amount, especially given covid restrictions. The primary focus being PLC update, new paintwork & systems overhaul, we are now eager to get sailing.”
Commissioned in 2014, the yacht fulfils her owner’s brief for a supremely comfortable cruising yacht that is more than capable of providing the pleasures of some ‘gentleman’s racing’ on occasion.
