Founded in 1884 Royal Huisman Yachts has continued to remain at the forefront of contemporary yacht construction over the years. Specializing in high quality custom ‘Alustar’ aluminum and carbon composite (superstructures) yachts between 80’ and 300’, Royal Huisman produced both sailing and motor luxury yachts.
After the passing of Walter Huisman, Royal Huisman is under fourth generation management and the shipyards managing director, Alice Huisman, is committed to utilizing recent investments in machinery and work facilities for the approximately 340 strong workforce. “I want to be sure that my father’s goal of offering our clients the assurance that quality people have quality equipment with which to work remains intact."
The combined companies of Royal Huisman Shipyard and Rondal provide a complete ‘under the one roof’ approach to custom yacht construction. This includes both alloy and composite fabrication facilities. With this ‘under the one roof’ approach to yacht construction all major trades are represented at the 30.000 square m facility. From the furniture hall to the adjoining Rondal factory for masts, hatches and deck equipment Royal Huisman produces it all.
Royal Huisman’s in-house engineering departments work closely with all major naval and styling architects to produce the infinite number of details found in custom yacht construction. The shipyard has gained a reputation for combining innovative engineering principles with traditional Dutch craftsmanship.

Twizzle, Endeavour II, Ethereal, GITANA, Hyperion, Athena, Meteor, Gliss, Areadia, Antares, Marin Cattiva, Borkumriff IV, Unfurled, Pamina, Foftein, Surama, Zwever, Anakena, Borkumriff III, Sayonara, Saudade, Juliet, Metolius, Corro Coro, Cyclos III, Foftein I, Yonder, Happy Joss...
