Royal Huisman Secures Taiwanese Order
Published: Monday, 13 January 2014
Royal Huisman, naval architect Germán Frers and interior styling architect RhoadesYoung announce the signing, on December 31st, of an order from the ever-growing South East Asia region. The order, the first for Royal Huisman in this region, is for a stylish 43 metre Luxury Sloop, a luxurious yet performance-oriented Germán Frers design offering exceptional potential for individual customisation.
The order is the direct result of the yard’s long-term commitment to developing business in the region. Over the past several years the team has worked to increase awareness and understanding of the Royal Huisman brand across South East Asia.
It has also sought to develop an industry network by appointing Regional Liaisons including Bart J. Kimman, director of Northrop & Johnson Asia, who acted as liaison between the client and shipyard during negotiations. As a very experienced yachtsman the client, a Taiwanese national, has made clear his intentions to attend future Superyacht regattas with this new yacht that will be christened Sea Eagle.
Mr. Kimman will continue to provide active, on-the-ground support of Royal Huisman’s presence in the region by providing future clients with expert advice and guidance, especially those who are new to the world of custom superyachts.
