fifth generation

April 29, 2013

Royal Huisman has 129-years' experience in delivering some of the world's finest yachts. Fifth-generation chief executive Alice Husiman talkes to CampdenFB about its roots and its move into the superyacht market.

The Dutch know their yachts. They, after all, invented them more than 500 years ago to pursue smugglers around their coast. One hundred and a few years later the good burghers of the Netherlands started seeing the potential of these “jachts”, as they called them, as pleasure crafts. The rest is history.

Dutch shipyards are still famous among sailors for building some of the finest yachts on earth – and not least among these shipyards is the 129-year-old Royal Huisman, maker of a number of the world’s largest and most advanced superyachts.
