During the recent Monaco Yacht Show Royal Huisman unveiled its unique Lotus superyacht concept. Lotus is one superyacht project with two integrated parts: a 289-foot DynaRig sailing yacht and an accompanying 230-foot explorer, capable of hitting 20 knots.
The project was created together with Dykstra Naval Architects and ThrityC Yacht Design who, together with Royal Huisman’s engineering and construction know-how, created a modern design with state-of-the-art features. In a statement, the creators claimed that Lotus is about “recognizing that different groups of family or guests might want to pursue different itineraries at the same time. Exploration, diving, the ability to explore rias and fjords, even a simple run ashore.”
The 289-foot sailing yacht has a DynaRig system with 2,200 square meters of sail area, she can cut through the water at a top speed of 20 knots and has plenty of agility. It has space space for 16 guests in eight cabins, plus an owner’s suite, and room for 14 crew.
The 230-foot explorer acts as a support vessel, with room for 18 crew, eight guests, and over 1,300 square feet of space for tenders, water toys, cars, helicopters, and submarines. Discover Opulent Club on Apple News.
