The history of the renowned shipyard Royal Huisman started in 1884 when it began by building fishing boats and wooden workboats. Founder Jan Huisman switched gears in 1954 when he started using steel, and ten years later, his son pioneered the use of aluminum to build sailing boats. Today, the yard is known to construct fully customized yachts of all types, and has also built the second largest sailing yacht on the water today, the 295ft (90m) ATHENA. Below we take a look at some of the Royal Huisman more recent brokerage yachts for sale on YATCO.com. Enjoy.
