Superyacht PHI in transit through the Netherlands to the open sea
Lawson Robb's project PHI has been featured in an article by Superyacht Times.
The article reads: 'Following her highly-anticipated launch this past July, the 58.5-metre superyacht Phi was seen in transit through the Netherlands after leaving Royal Huisman’s Vollenhove facility. Phi will be delivered alongside her support vessel, the 36-metre Phi Phantom, built by Alia Yachts, later this year.
Phi’s striking exterior was penned by Cor D. Rover Design and features sleek exterior lines, inspired by a cobra. Besides her unique matte blue-grey hull and horizontal grille work at her bow, one of Phi’s defining exterior aesthetic features is her glass-fronted nooks in the bulwarks on her bridge and owner’s decks, which can be used as recliners.

Van Oossanen Naval Architects was behind the all-aluminium superyacht’s Fast Displacement XL hull configuration, which maximises her sub-500 GT interior volume.
On deck, Phi has a 7-metre swimming pool to aft, which can be filled with either seawater or freshwater. The pool’s floor is manoeuvrable so that guests can create extra deck space when required.
Phi’s build, which has been supervised by the owner’s representative, Guy Booth, has taken place alongside the construction of her support vessel, Phantom Phi. Phantom Phi was launched by her builder Alia Yachts from its facility in Antalya, Turkey. The vessel was also designed by Cor D. Rover, and features naval architecture from Van Oossanen Naval Architects, who mirrored her mothership’s exterior styling. The support vessel will be used to carry the tenders and toys of Phi, which will be deployed using her 9-metre crane, capable of lifting 5.5 tonnes.
