Dutch shipyard Royal Huisman has moved the 58m sailing yacht Ngoni, aka The Beast, outside the shed in preparation for her launch and sea trials.
Ngoni boasts an aluminium hull styled with a plumb bow and a streamlined deckhouse. Superyacht Business understands that the yacht is to carry a 71m long single full-carbon Rondal mast.
Attached to this is a custom in-boom furler designed to carry a square-head main sail by North Sails. A carbon fibre rogging system by Carbo-link hold the mast in place. This is expected to provide weight saving of nearly 70%.
She is also fitted with two submarine anchors and a fully retractable bow thruster. Her lifting keel is milled from solid aluminium and able to support nearly 100 tonnes of fin and lead bulb weight.
Designed by the late Ed Dubois, Royal Huisman’s Ngoni features interior styling by Rick Baker and Paul Morgan.
