The owner’s brief was for a boat that would perform well without excessive heel, hence her relatively beamy hull and spoon bow for a more gentle ride. With a magnificent stained oak and wenge interior by Rhoades Young that takes full advantage of the generous hull volume to create voluminous salons, a spacious full beam-master suite and extensive accommodation for both guests and crew, the yacht fulfils all her owner’s criteria for a comfortable cruising yacht that may also indulge in a little
‘gentleman’s racing.’

“Wisp is a shining example of how a modern sailing yacht can still impart a sense of Corinthian spirit,” says Alice Huisman. “Her quality design and construction provides ocean-going capability, comfort and performance.”

“It has been a challenge to meet the owner’s high expectations, but the successful result is thanks to hard work by all concerned,” says Nigel Ingram of MCM, acting as the owner’s representative, of their first collaboration with Royal Huisman. “The working relationship with the yard has been enjoyable and the quality of the yacht speaks for itself. We look forward to further developing the relationship with Royal Huisman over future projects.”

Wisp yacht‘s sea trails and further crew training will take place in the next weeks prior to delivery to her owner later this spring. In the meantime, Royal Huisman’s construction and Huisfit halls are focused on various highly distinctive projects, including three new build yachts ranging in size from just under 40m up to 52m in length overall.
