Royal Huisman says its Project 406 superyacht is ready to leave its new-build facilities in Vollenhove, ready for the Dutch shipyard to install the yacht’s upper deck, sun awning hardtop and radar mast.

The six-deck superyacht described as the ‘world’s largest true sportfish yacht’, with a towering profile and a hull measuring 52 metres overall.

The high tower offers impressive views of the water at a downward angle for specialised fishing. Apart from its practical function, the tower also offers a viewing platform for guests, who can follow the action below.

Project 406 is fitted out to be suitable for both high-end sportfishing and luxurious living, with interior and exterior design and naval architecture by Vripack Yacht Design Studio. The Alustar aluminium motor yacht has a distinctive design, with a long bow and high bulwarks sweeping through a clear sheer to a low and uncluttered cockpit aft.

‘Not only is Project 406 the largest but, without doubt, the most bespoke, finely appointed, meticulously engineered and most impressive true sportfish yacht anywhere in the world — with all the amenities expected of a superyacht,’ Royal Huisman says.

Project 406 is being built by the shipyard team of over 350 in the Netherlands. The testing of most on-board systems and other technical installations is currently nearing completion before the yacht’s final transport, upcoming launch and trials.
