Royal Huisman APEX 850
THE LARGEST SLOOP IN THE WORLD
Royal Huisman and Malcolm McKeon presented the sensational APEX 850.
This is arguably the most ambitious and inspiring concept that has been developed yet in an exclusive relationship between Royal Huisman and renowned superyacht designer Malcolm McKeon.
On top of its sleek and powerful 85m / 279ft hull, APEX boasts an imposing 107m / 351ft air firing platform that will dominate the seascape wherever it anchors in the world.
The amazing minimalism in every aspect of McKeon’s radical design serves to emphasize the grace and potential of this extraordinary ocean greyhound.
Even the all-glass superstructure, encompassing some 200m2 / 2,150ft2 of guest cabin and luxurious salon, hardly seems to be there – a low-key, almost ethereal presence.
Malcolm McKeon comments: “The APEX 850 sailing experience will be sensational, with speeds exceeding wind speed in most conditions. Its retractable keel, optimized weight distribution and limited heel angle will provide stability, comfort and safety for everyone on board. Its tall-looking twin rudders will provide quick response to its flight-by-wire rudder. ”
APEX 850 is fully resolved in terms of design, architecture and naval engineering.
Technical challenges have been identified and addressed; refinement potential explored and incorporated. Therefore, the concept is an unprecedented opportunity for an ambitious and creative homeowner to imprint their individuality while still seeing an unusually attractive delivery date for such a project.
Royal Huisman CEO Jan Timmerman adds: “Two of the ten largest sailing yachts in the world, ATHENA and SEA EAGLE II, are Royal Huisman builds and the APEX 850 would be an appropriate third party, easily becoming the member. largest of this elite circle. Every Royal Huisman yacht benefits from the research, innovations and challenges of our previous builds, ensuring this is the best yet. ”
