Royal Huisman Secure 43.5m Sloop Order

Royal Huisman, Naval Architect Germaan Frers and interior styling architect Rhoades Young are delighted to announce the signing on December 31st, of an order from the ever growing South East Asia region. The order, the first for Royal Huisman in this region, is for a stylish 43m (143ft) Luxury Sloop.

The order is the direct result of the yard's long-term commitment to developing business in the region. Over the past several years the team has worked hard to increase awareness and understanding of the Royal Huisman brand into the dynamics of South East Asia. They have also sought to develop an industry network by appointing regional liaisons including Bart J. Kimman, director of Northrop & Johnson Asia who, following introduction acted as liaison between the client and shipyard during the negotiations to secure this order. The client is a very experienced yachtsman and a Taiwanese national who has made clear his intentions to attend future Superyacht regattas with this new yacht that will be christened as "Sea Eagle" when launched.

Mr. Kimman will continue to provide an active on the ground presence in support of Royal Huisman's presence in the region by providing future clients with expert advice and guidance, especially those who are new to the world of custom superyachts and to sailing.

There is no doubt that the Royal Huisman brand has begun to build a following among well informed business leaders in the South East Asian region. As a result the Royal Huisman team see the announcement representing not just that of "a valued new order" but of "a firm foothold in a valued new market".
