NEWS, NOTES AND WHAT’S TREND­ING IN THE YACHT­ING SCENE

Dutch builder Royal Huisman, pri­mar­ily known for sail­ing yachts, has signed a con­tract to build Project Phi: a fast-dis­place­ment, 180-foot (50-meter) motoryacht with ex­te­rior de­sign by Cor D. Rover, in­te­ri­ors by Law­son Robb and naval ar­chi­tec­ture by Van Oos­sa­nen Naval Ar­chi­tects.

Project Phi is ex­pected to come in un­der 500 gross tons, with gy­rosta­bi­liz­ers and a max­i­mum speed of ap­prox­i­mately 22 knots.

Royal Huisman says the owner wants se­ri­ous ma­chin­ery and tech­ni­cal sys­tems in a long, slen­der hull—hence his look­ing to a builder of sail­ing yachts. The word Phi re­lates to the math­e­mat­i­cal con­cept of a “golden ra­tio.”

De­liv­ery is ex­pected in 2021.
