Royal Huisman have launched the 46m ketch Project 392. The yacht was designed by Hoek Yacht Design, with an interior by Redman Whiteley Dixon, and project managed by Prior Yacht Management. The plumb-bowed classic pilot ketch has been highly optimised for performance. Her long waterline, lifting keel with trim tab and carbon spade rudder are complemented by a powerful, fully-roached sail plan by Doyle Sails New Zealand, supported by a complete carbon fibre rig package.

Fine exterior lines and proven sea-keeping characteristics will combine with luxurious and spacious accommodation to create a yacht with the ability to go anywhere in comfort, style and security. Serious has been given to achieving high levels of energy-efficiency in developing her systems, with an equal commitment to maintaining a design aesthetic that faithfully acknowledges her sailing forebears. Interior material selections were based not only upon design aesthetics but upon the inherent potential as a renewable resource.
