  • Turning Over A New Super Maxi



    Speed, safety, strength and silence: these 4 elements are at the core of R/P's Design No. 283 153.5' Superyacht the REICHEL/PUGH-NAUTA 151 — a one-off, blue water performance sloop with general concept by Nauta Design, Naval Architecture by Reichel/Pugh, and construction at the Royal Huisman shipyard.







    At the same time, this radical new concept will offer all the benefits associated with existing Royal Huisman yachts: comfort, low noise levels, and optimal world cruising characteristics. All good news to the owners, who are looking forward to exploring the world in their new yacht and also anticipate participating in various regattas.

    The modern and powerful hull shape of the REICHEL/PUGH-NAUTA 151, with its straight bow, wide transom, and twin rudders, capably embodies the naval architecture and hydrodynamic design by Reichel/Pugh Yacht Design, who have an impressive reputation for creating high-performance designs.

    The construction on the inside is based on the optimal use of the materials that the Royal Huisman shipyard knows so well. For example, the hull of the REICHEL/PUGH-NAUTA 151 is a high-grade mix of aluminum and carbon composite, utilizing a semi-automated parametric structural optimization process. During sixteen iterations that are part of the Royal Huisman shipyard’s new “Featherlight” method, the structural weight is reduced with an admirable 11% compared to conventional methods, while maintaining stiffness of the hull and ensuring structural integrity.

    The trunk for the retractable keel, the deckhouse, guest cockpit and hardtop will all be carbon composite, and are currently being manufactured “next door”, at Rondal. The shipyard’s sister company is skillfully bringing to life, the intriguing shapes envisaged by Nauta Design, who are responsible for the yacht’s general concept, exterior and interior design.

    In addition, Rondal and its partners are working on optimizing the yacht’s performance by applying various innovations to the yacht’s integrated sail handling system, such as carbon captive winches, and the state-of-the-art Panamax carbon rig. The latter was developed with structured luff sails in mind from the outset: reducing the load on the hardware means that the rig can be significantly lighter, as well. This will be the first large newbuild yacht to launch with a configuration based on this method of rig design and engineering. The jib’s sail area will be maximized, introducing newly designed, curved spreaders, which will have a significantly slimmer profile design: aesthetically pleasing and decreased windage.
