Dutch shipyard Royal Huisman has lifted the lid on Pura, a new 38.43-metre (126-foot) custom sailing yacht developed in collaboration with Frers Design.
The design concept is sharply focused on customisation. The initial model will arrive with 80% of the engineering design completed – the remainder of the superyacht’s specifications will be left up to the potential owner and their desires and wishes.
Completed elements aboard Pura will include the core technology platform for all operating systems, including propulsion, power generation, hotel and security systems, HVAC, hydraulics, mast, rig, sail plan and sail handling. Although the fixed hull structure and keel will also be complete ahead of customisation by the owner, the hull’s shape, decks and superstructure can be given bespoke looks and shapes.
Mani Frers, architect at Frers Design, has provided the bow and stern profile styling, as well as hull sheer and superstructure designs for Pura. Owners can plot their own interior configurations, although it is suggested that Pura can accommodate up to eight guests across four cabins (one master, and three twin). The concept can also house up to six crewmembers.
Royal Huisman can also fit a tailored performance package depending on an incoming owner’s plans for the superyacht – whether that’s for high-octane global expeditions, demanding regatta appearances or relaxed Med cruising.
