The World’s Longest Motoryacht Below 500GT
Lifting the veil on the radical, fast displacement aluminium motoryacht (bit by bit, to respect the Owner’s request) Royal Huisman is excited to present an impressive new fact: PHI will be the world’s longest motoryacht below 500 GT. Until now, PHI’s length was a mysterious “55m+”. With her launch coming up in 2021 it is time to reveal her actual overall length: 58.5m / 192ft, which makes her – based on today’s Classification rules – by far the longest motoryacht in the sub-500GT category. PHI offers significantly more exterior and semi-interior entertainment area on the aft deck than conventional designs, and instead of a typical “wedding cake” silhouette, she will have a very sleek and appealing low profile.
Cor D. Rover, responsible for PHI’s general concept, exterior design & interior layout, explains the design philosophy: «Rather than just building a large yacht on a so-called shipyard ‘platform’ to enjoy the pleasures of being at sea, the Owner of PHI wanted to build a yacht with a profound underlying story, a deep-rooted knowledge that runs through all aspects of the yacht, from her exterior appearance all the way to internal experience.»
«We wanted the upper deck, where the Owner has his penthouse apartment, to be closest to the skies, to follow the PHI philosophy with a focus on the galaxy. The main deck, where most daytime guest activities happen, has a more horizontal focal connection with the ocean surface, whereas the lower deck, physically rooted in the water, is strongly ‘connected’ with the underwater-world.»
Complementing motoryacht PHI will be a 36m / 118ft shadow vessel, currently under construction in Asia. Carrying the same DNA as her bigger “beauty queen” sister, the shadow vessel is the hard working sibling.
