52m royal huisman schooner sold by YPI
YPI is pleased to announce the sale of 52m Royal Huisman schooner METEOR. YPI Sales & New Construction Broker Will Bishop represented the Seller.
Presented fresh from a 2018 refit by her original build shipyard Royal Huisman, METEOR is an iconic schooner boasting a regatta-winning history. Named Sailing Yacht of the Year at the World Superyacht Awards in 2008, she went on to win the St Barths Bucket in 2009. To complement her pedigree Dutch build quality, METEOR features naval architecture by Dykstra and classic interiors by John Munford. She accommodates 6 guests in 3 suites.
METEOR’s recent winter refit included the completion of her ten-year Lloyd’s survey, numerous cosmetic and maintenance upgrades, hull and rig repaint and engine room overhaul. She is equipped with the finest sailing gear, including North sails spanning 1,800 square metres and Rondal carbon spars, and offers an ergonomic deck layout for streamlined performance.
YPI would like to thank the yacht’s captain and crew for their co-operation.
