Lawson Robb have been featured on superyachts.com which details its work on the extraordinary Yacht Phi. The owner’s brief placed priority on the interior spaces, designed by Lawson Robb, to seamlessly continue the principles of Phi’s forward – thinking design ethos.
Dutch shipyard, Royal Huisman, has revealed new details of Project PHI. The radical fast displacement motor yacht of over 55-metres now enters new phases of construction with its 180ft+ hull wheeled underneath her superstructure at Royal Huisman’s facilities in Vollenhove, Holland.
PHI’s narrow and fuel-efficient hull – based on the exterior design of Cor D. Rover and naval architecture by Van Oossanen Naval Architects – was engineered and constructed in the shipyard’s Shipbuilding Hall 1 and was turned on its keel for completion late last year. PHI’s superstructure was equally well-prepared and detailed by all main engineering departments of the shipyard, but its production was outsourced.
PHI will be a magnificently sensuous motor yacht with exterior design from the drawing board of Cor D. Rover, interior design by Lawson Robb and naval architecture by Van Oossanen Naval Architects. Relating to the ”sectio divina” or the Golden Ratio, PHI is the formula that governs the continuation of dimensions and shapes in natural proportions throughout the design. PHI’s creation was the result of many in-depth conversations over a period of years, between the experienced Owner and Cor D. Rover. The especially developed Fast Displacement XL ® hull form from Van Oossanen allows this yacht to be 55m+ / 180ft+ and still remain under the 500 GT mark.
PHI combines high levels of performance in a design that is certain to attract admiration, not only for her radical looks, but also for the integration of futuristic technology, her unrivalled guest spaces, and the highest levels of comfort, all executed to the absolute finest of possible standards.
