Project Phi

Project Phi was first announced in the summer of 2018 and, with design engineering well advanced, construction of the aluminium hull began at Royal Huisman’s Vollenhove yard in mid-February 2019.

Among a long list of exceptional features of this project are the fuel-efficient hull lines based on the patented Fast-Displacement XL® concept by Van Oossanen Naval Architects, who are responsible to maximise the yacht’s length of over 55m / 180ft while remaining within the sub-500GT category.

The resulting hull will provide a comfortable and stable platform for this radical and high performance vessel, notwithstanding the relatively narrow beam that contributes to Phi’s striking looks.

With hull turning scheduled for summer 2019, numerous unique features and specialist aspects of the yacht are being prepared in parallel to the hull construction by the Royal Huisman team, working in close co-operation with the owner’s team and designers. Delivery of Project Phi is scheduled for 2021.
