The future owner's discussions with the Dutch experts from Dykstrund Royal Huisman about his ideas for a new ship resulted in an initially anachronistic design: a ketch, 56 meters long. Insider, however, was not surprised by the solution. It was not the first yacht of this size to be rigged by the Dykstreine designers.
Because a two-master still has its advantages over a sloop on comfortable blue water trips. And that's what it was all about: a yacht for pleasant long journeys with the family. It should also look chic and stylish, with a clear, tidy deck and flat superstructure. The priorities were set.
All the more astonishing what happened at the regatta premiere of the “Aquarius” in the Caribbean. The yacht, designed as a cruise ship, showed the assembled and well-known competition - including the J-Class "Velsheda" - the stern several times and won its class confidently. The lady revealed unexpected qualities.
