Project Phi Coming Together
Superyacht Phi’s 55m+ hull is now in Royal Huisman’s largest shipbuilding hall. This hall has room for precise alignment, assembly and further outfitting of the radical, fast displacement, sub 500GT of Project Phi.
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.
The superyacht is due to be delivered in 2021. Stay tuned for further updates about this very exciting project of ours.
