Dutch luxury sailing yacht builder Royal Huisman has launched the 56-meter ketch known as Project RH399, now christened as Aquarius after it left the shed of the yard a few days ago.

This classic-looking item by Dykstra Naval Architects picked up an order in December 2014 from an American couple, who asked for a boat for worldwide cruising and Bucket regatta racing.

With a beam of 9.5 meters, Aquarius features a slender hull with long overhangs. She is a fast and agile fin keel boat equipped with carbon spars by Rondal and the standing rigging scaled up to a maximum allowable air draft.

The interior layout created by Mark Whiteley, with its elaborate white painted paneling and timber elements, matches the yacht’s classic exterior. The yacht can comfortably accommodate up to 8 guests and 11 crew members overnight. 

Apart from the elegantly furnished master suite and 3 en-suite guest cabins, the living areas include a bunk room for the owner’s extended family, featuring twin beds and a set of Pullman berths above. Among other amenities, are a fully equipped gym, a media room, and a mid-deck lounge shaded with sun canopy.

A perfect time in a solitary bay is ensured by a wide array of water toys, such as kayaks, windsurfers, and bicycles. The boat also carries a 6.2-meter jet drive tender. Once delivered to her owners, Aquarius will head to the Windward and Leeward Islands for her maiden cruise.
