Royal Huisman has released photographs and details of a stunning new 184ft ketch. Their media release describes her as “a stunning yacht of rare beauty, combining classic hull lines with a powerful modern rig and a clean, contemporary chic above and below decks.
“Aquarius truly defines what it means to be a ‘modern classic’. With naval architecture by Dykstra Naval Architects and interior design from Mark Whiteley Design this magnificent 56m/184ft ketch was realised by Royal Huisman together with Rondal and an outstanding team of rig specialists. Exceptional co-operation from the highly talented client team ensured a harmonious build and a highly successful outcome.
“The owners’ brief was for an elegant yet muscular sailboat with a classic profile, for family enjoyment. The yacht should have favourable sea keeping characteristics that are ideal for world cruising as well as standing her in good stead for the occasional Bucket regatta.”
