Royal Huisman's "spaceship for the sea" will combine a fast sailing yacht capable of crossing the ocean with the comforts of a luxury motor yacht. Envisioned by naval architect Briand, whose past projects have broken transatlantic records, the rig is designed for Panama Canal transits, giving its owner license to travel around the world in a sleek floating mansion. Interiors are designed to afford privacy from the crew, and deck gear will be concealed and protected from the elements. The price tag, depending on owner specifications, is expected to be in the neighborhood of $67 million.
