WORK IN PROGRESS | ROYAL HUISMAN PURA
By Mary Hegarty and Désirée Sormani
Frers Design and Royal Huisman have joined forces to craft the new and very detailed Pura concept, a real departure from the existing sailing superyachts on the market right now. It marries many of the pluses of a full-custom approach with fast delivery and convenience. Described as a “smart new option”, Royal Huisman Pura gives owners virtually unlimited scope to shape the hull, deck and superstructure around their personal vision and includes a choice of different bow and stern profiles, hull sheer and superstructure designs. A simple formula: you share your ideas and experts will present their ideas and interpretations.There are also various versions for the interior arrangement layout and a completely blank canvas for the décor. 80% of the engineering is already done thanks to a ‘core’ section of a 40m / 130ft PURA sailing superyacht, a proven and robust Best Fit technology platform. Propulsion, power generation and management, hotel and security systems, HVAC, hydraulics, mast rig, sail plan and sail handling are all covered, in fact. There is even pre-planned maintenance at a fixed cost. Two scale models showcasing PURA’s exciting potential will be on show at Monaco.
