The fine hull lines of luxury yacht PHI make her a highly fuel-efficient vessel when combined with her low profile, which is considered a challenging prospect for both engineering and construction. For this reason alone, the experience that the Royal Huisman shipyard has accumulated over the years in creating award-winning sailing superyachts has been indispensable ensuring the build proceeded smoothly.

Critically acclaimed yacht designer Cor D. Rover shaped M/Y PHI both inside and out, having many in-depth conversations with the Owner over a period of years and applying the ‘Golden Ratio’ for natural proportions.

Based on current classification rules, M/Y PHI is the longest motor yacht with a volume under 500 GT. The naval architecture comes from Van Oossanen Naval Architects, while the as-yet to be revealed interiors are by London-based design studio Lawson Robb. The decks have three distinct themes: Galaxy, the surface and the underwater world.

The accommodation sleeps a total of 12 guests and a crew of 11, and there is a speed of approximately 22 knots for making good time while cruising popular charter grounds.

M/Y PHI will be delivered later in 2021 and will be accompanied by a 36m/118ft shadow vessel from the same designers and constructed at Alia Yachts.
