Royal Huisman is marking a milestone in sport fishing with Project 406: The 171-foot (52m) newbuild will be next in line to claim the title of largest sportfishing yacht in the world. According to the shipyard, the yacht’s interior and exterior features were meticulously designed by Vripack naval architects to accentuate her mission: high-end sport fishing in a luxurious setting. Six towering decks with along, sweeping bow and high bulwarks culminate aft in a low, uncluttered fishing cockpit that lies close to the water for easy access to gear and a clear sight of the catch. A platform immediately above offers sky lounge “theater seating” for a bird’s eye view of the spectacular action unfolding below. The special Alustar aluminum hull offers strength and resilience while achieving the lighter weight necessary for a smooth and efficient passage to the fishing grounds.
