Impressive and already iconic superyacht Sea Eagle II built by Dutch shipyard Royal Huisman is nearing delivery. The 81m boat is the largest all-aluminium sailing vessel in the world.
Earlier this year, Sea Eagle II, designed by Dykstra Naval Architects with the interior design created by Mark Whiteley, was transferred from the shipyard’s headquarters in Vollenhove and launched in Amsterdam. Previously called Project RH400, the boat was sold in summer 2016 by Northrop & Johnson. The vessel reportedly belongs to Taiwanese billionaire businessman and philanthropist Samuel Yen-Liang Yin. The three-masted vessel is the owner's “ultimate dream yacht” the shipyard said.
Samuel Yin’s previous sailing yacht Sea Eagle is nearly 37m shorter and has 800 GT less of interior volume compared to Sea Eagle II. The billionaire has an estimated net worth of $2.7 billion. Yin is a chairman of Taiwan's Ruentex Group, and also he has stakes in Sun Art Retail Group, a leading hypermarket operator in China.
Sea Eagle II is capable of achieving spectacular speeds over 21 kn. The full sail area is controlled by 34 winches from sailing system integrator Rondal.
The boat can accommodate up to 12 guests in six spacious cabins, including a VIP suite for the owner. There is a half-raised bridge for inside steering. The yacht’s flybridge offers full controls during sailing with comfortable seating for guests, and sunbathing opportunities.
Nearly all board systems, such as air conditioning, electronics, wastewater treatment, were thoroughly tested in the year prior to launch to avoid any surprises during the commissioning stage.
