Sea Eagle II: The inside story of the world’s largest aluminium sailing yacht

Yachting World

  • June 17, 2020

Rupert Holmes talks to the build and design teams behind the 81m Royal Huisman flagship Sea Eagle II, which recently completed her sea trials off the coast of the Netherlands

Royal Huisman has an enviable track record of producing superlative sailing superyachts , with hundreds of projects completed to date. Yet the latest vessel to leave the shipyard is extraordinary even by these standards. She is the world’s largest aluminium yacht and is one of the top ten biggest sailing yachts ever built. 

Sea Eagle II is a magnificent 81m/266ft three-masted Panamax schooner, created by the same Dykstra and Mark Whiteley Design collaboration that produced the stunning 56m/186ft Royal Huisman ketch Aquarius just over a year ago. 

Her very experienced owner has sailed all his life and spent a lot of time at sea. “ Sailing around the world in the weekends is a phrase often used to outline his days on board,” says Royal Huisman project manager Arjo Spans. He is also a repeat client – the original Sea Eagle is a 43m/143ft Frers/Rhoades Young design launched by the Dutch yard in 2015.

Initially the brief for the new boat was for a more classical yacht, similar to the 79m/259ft three-masted gaff schooner Athena , which Royal Huisman built for Silicon Valley mogul Jim Clark in 2004. However, the owner quickly realised he would prefer a more modern yacht: a fast-looking hull shape with straight lines, long waterline and plumb bow. The concept of Sea Eagle II was born. 

“Having worked with him to build the original Sea Eagle , we understood the owner’s priorities from the start,” says Spans. “These are: low maintenance, functionality, and safety, including ease of moving around the yacht, even when heeled at sea.

“For each of the key aspects of the boat he asked for three proposals, he would then choose one of them and leave us to implement it,” Spans adds. “He put a huge amount of trust in the shipyard and in our craftsmanship.”

Sailing around Cape Horn on the world’s largest ketch Aquijo

Royal Huisman reveals 116ft ‘floating resort’ catamaran superyacht concept

“This is not a change in direction; it is an expansion of possibilities,” says Jan Timmerman, CEO of the 136-year-old…

The scale of this yacht is nothing short of astounding. The sleek hull lines belie the 4m/13ft freeboard and the two-tier deckhouse, including a half-raised bridge, looks entirely in proportion. The main deck-level accommodation has a huge expanse of glass, with the 360º view interrupted only by minimal mullions. There are also acres of cockpit space, with room left over for a long sweep of uncluttered aft deck.

Mark Whiteley was responsible for developing the interior and refining the exterior styling. He created a simple and modern style for the interior, with straight lines. Lacquered Alpi walnut wall panels, brushed natural oak floors and dark stained wenge trims are complemented by light colour leather handrails and upholstered wall panels.

Part of the brief was for the yacht to be able to host business meetings – the forward part of the superstructure therefore includes a large saloon with expansive seating, plus a 16-seat table for formal dining.

A technical challenge 

Dykstra Naval Architects drew a narrow and efficient hull shape with a maximum beam of only 12.4m/40ft, while displacement has been kept down to a relatively light 1,050 tonnes at full load. The final shape was achieved following extensive computational flow dynamics (CFD) calculations, velocity prediction programming (VPP), and testing in both tow tanks and wind tunnels. These all helped to determine sail balance, keel position and predicted rudder angles.

The plumb bow is balanced by a modest, but graceful, stern overhang, with a contemporary, relatively wide transom at deck level. Twin knuckle lines extend aft from near the bow, merging into one amidships and then forming a chine aft. Right aft the hull has negative curvature on the flare below the chine, which gives interesting reflections in the gleaming paintwork.

The lead naval architect, Dykstra’s Erik Wassen, told me he introduced the knuckle lines to give the hull “a bolder and more interesting shape.” The owner liked the concept and Mark Whiteley helped to refine the detail. Wassen describes the underwater shape as being: “a very modern round bilge shape, with a nice slender hull that gives good sailing capabilities.” Appendages are a conventional fin keel and balanced rudder.

The latter presented an interesting technical challenge, according to Wassen. Initially they looked at fabricating the rudder stock in steel, but that alone would weigh three tonnes. Screening a number of alternatives led to a decision to use carbon for the stock, with a foam core section clad in a relatively thin composite skin for the blade. 

The result is what it’s producer, Royal Huisman’s sister company Rondal, believes to be the biggest ever carbon rudder, weighing only 1,250kg, which helps to keep weight out of the ends of the boat. The weight saving here also enabled the intended fore and aft trim to be achieved with the ballast in its optimal location.

The rudder includes load sensors to record and verify torque, side forces and bending moment while sailing. “There is not much load data available for rudders of this size of sailing yacht, so it’s very conservatively engineered,” says Spans. Fibre-optic sensors are incorporated to enable a database to be created that will help with designing future composite rudders for very large yachts.

Due to the distance of the helm stations from the rudder, the steering is via an electric-hydraulic system, which means there’s no feedback from the helm. The plan is to investigate whether data from the sensors can be used in a feedback system to give a more natural feel to steering the boat under sail. 

Structural engineering

This is one of the most interesting elements of yacht design, yet is all too often under appreciated. Extensive modelling showed a couple of unexpected problems that needed clever solutions during Sea Eagle II ’s design and engineering. 

Instead of the hull flexing smoothly under load, like an I-beam, the presence of a forward intermediate deck introduced hard spots in this area, resulting in stress concentrations at the forward end of the superstructure. This required a lot of design work to create a smooth transition of stress from the lower deck to the intermediate one and then on to the upper deck.

Structural engineering was extensively modelled for Sea Eagle II

The roof of the superstructure also posed a challenge, in that the inside surface of a beam needs to become shorter as it flexes. But the original plan for the aluminium roof wasn’t able to accommodate this, with the result the modelling showed stresses concentrating in the corners of the mullions and in the glass itself. 

The solution was to avoid welding the top of the mullions to the roof, opting instead for a flexible joint that allows for movement when necessary. Wassen likens it to the joints in large buildings that need to be included to allow for thermal expansion and contraction.

Whiteley also helped to refine the exterior styling. In addition to the detail of the knuckles, his input helped to refine the shapes – particularly curves and softening corners – in the superstructure.

Panamax rig

The requirement to be able to clear the Bridge of the Americas at the Pacific end of the Panama canal called for the schooner rig with three equal masts. All are of carbon and are made by Rondal, with integrated sail handling systems and Carbo-Link carbon standing rigging.

Each mast has in-boom furling, while the aft two have staysails for use when reaching. The tank and wind tunnel testing was used to verify different headsail options, particularly to determine the differences between a large blade jib versus a large staysail or yankee.

“Obviously you have better windward performance with a large blade,” says Wassen, “but as soon as you bear away the yankee is much more forgiving in trimming, so we decided that made more sense.” A further advantage is that when the yankee is part furled the sheeting point remains the same.

In addition, a blade jib requires much higher sheet loads to maintain leech tension. Even though Sea Eagle II is a three-masted yacht, the yankee sheet loads are still predicted to reach 18 tonnes – but this still allows standard-size captive winches to be used, rather than larger custom-made units.

The Panamax limitation obviously poses the question as to whether sail area needed to be compromised to fulfil this criteria. However, this is clearly not the case for Sea Eagle II . Hull speed is close to 20 knots and the yacht is clearly capable of surfing at much higher speeds, despite being designed as a pure cruiser. This role, of course, suggests keeping heel angles to a maximum of 10-15°. 

Nevertheless, the VPP figures suggest potential boat speeds of 17-18 knots in 16 knots of true breeze with a true wind angle of 70°. “As soon as you can ease the sheets a little bit, we have a lot of sail area,” says Wassen, “so on a beam reach, I wouldn’t be surprised if a steady 20 knots is possible.”

Sea Eagle – a true sailor’s superyacht

Three years after a low-key launch, captain mike douglass discusses the striking schooner as it embarks on a busy charter schedule….

sea eagle yacht wikipedia

Delivered in 2020 at the height of the pandemic, Sea Eagle ’s arrival on the superyacht scene was, as even Royal Huisman admits, ‘low-key’ compared with the stature it has now gained in the upper bracket of sailing superyachts.

TSG caught up with the stunning 81-metre schooner as it was completing a yard period at STP Palma ahead of a busy charter season. Cutting an imposing figure at the end of the dock, Sea Eagle has very few contemporaries for true comparison, whichever way you look at it.

As the world’s largest aluminium sailing yacht, it takes its place in the top 10, alongside Huisman’s Athena . A contentious list at the best of times, the key criterion that elevates Sea Eagle relates to the word ‘sailing’. Sea Eagle ’s comparatively light weight, long waterline and powerful, yet manageable, Panamax rig ensure it lives up to the cliché of being ‘a true sailing yacht’.

Originally built for a discerning owner with blue-water cruising and private usage in mind, it’s now under new ownership and ready to make a bigger splash. At the time of writing, it’s in Sweden, where it will spend the summer cruising the Nordic region before returning to the Mediterranean in late September.

sea eagle yacht wikipedia

According to Royal Huisman, the original brief for Sea Eagle was to “create an extremely comfortable and spacious yacht with good seakeeping and exceptional amenities for both guests and crew, offering outstanding passage-making performance so that the owner could take in as much of the world under sail as possible. A true sailor’s yacht – practical, powerful, safe and easily managed. Finally, it had to be functional, favouring simplicity and reliability over unnecessary frills.”

A walkthrough of the yacht clearly reveals that this brief has certainly been followed. The guest accommodation is spacious but not excessive. Undoubtedly, the designers could have taken more space for the owners’ areas, considering the available volume. Instead, it’s obvious that it has been intelligently used to provide the necessary storage, working areas and crew accommodation to fulfil the rest of its brief: that of an efficient world cruiser.

sea eagle yacht wikipedia

In the pantheon of very large sailing yachts, Sea Eagle is in the minority. It may seem like a misnomer, but a dirty secret of some large sailing yachts is that they don’t sail as much as their smaller cousins or common conception suggests.

The reasons for this are manifold. A combination of the extreme forces at play, the danger associated with accidents and the high cost of replacement and associated lead times in case of mishaps can leave crew skittish when it comes to hoisting solely for the purposes of a passage.

“ Sea Eagle has sailed over 55,000 miles in the first three years,” says its captain, Mike Douglass. “A lot of that has been under sail and without engines. It handles very well, and having the confidence to do these passages with very little engine use is a testament to the build quality.”

A contributing factor to this confidence is the fact that the massive sail area (2,580 sq m/27,770 sq ft upwind; 3,552 sq m/38,233 sq ft downwind) is spread over three masts. The hoisting and furling time is roughly equivalent to a sloop of 50 metres, meaning managing this kind of sail set-up is not as daunting as it may have been half a generation ago.

Behind this ability is the energy-generation and management system. Electrical and hydraulic power come mainly from the twin generators. In addition, there is a hydraulic take-off from each main engine and peak shaving from the powerful battery bank, resulting in a significant volume of hydraulic capacity (500kW) – well in excess of requirements to hoist fore, main and mizzen sails simultaneously.

The 60-metre carbon Rondal masts, as with all that leave the Rondal factory, are built in one piece. The carbon-fibre roller furling booms, captive reel and drum winches, and flush deck hatches were also manufactured by Rondal, while continuous carbon-fibre standing rigging was supplied by Carbo-Link. The sail plan is then managed by Rondal’s Integrated Sail Handling System which interfaces spars, rigging, winches and sailing hardware in a custom configuration.

“Environmental impact reduction is better achievable when the vessel is responsive to the breeze and can sail by wind to the desired destination,” says Erik Wassen, of Dykstra Naval Architects . “The powerful rig geometry of Sea Eagle can be quickly adapted to the conditions encountered, allowing her to safely sail for proportionately more miles of the journey.”

Douglass adds, “When you look down the line of the great Huisman sailing yachts using similar rigs – Blue Papillon , Hyperion – they are tried and tested. We’re just running three of them side by side.”

Sea Eagle ’s Panamax rigs are integral to its world-cruising credentials. The ability to transit the Panama Canal (while fitting under the Bridge of the Americas with a 61-metre clearance) means the yacht can sail from the Caribbean to the Pacific without the arduous trip around Cape Horn.

After a planned Caribbean charter season, and hopefully a racing schedule, that’s exactly where it will head. As with increasing numbers of intrepid yachts, the wilds of Central and South America await.

Large sailing yachts are idiosyncratic, none more so than Sea Eagle . They appeal to a smaller section of the charter market and have to contend with a smaller pool of prospective clients. And, at 550,000 euros per week (via Burgess as the sole CA), it’s at the sharp end of the sailing charter market.

“I have no doubt that what Sea Eagle offers more than overcomes this price point,” says Douglass. “We have a very experienced charter crew and some great sailors. The space on board, the comfort underway and the experience that we can offer, compared to what the same price gets you in the motoryacht market, it’s incomparable.”

sea eagle yacht wikipedia

Having been on the build crew and eventually captaining sailing yacht Vertigo , the 2011 67-metre Alloy Yachts ketch, through one of the busiest sail charter programmes imaginable, as well as more recently the 83-metre Abeking & Rasmussen motoryacht Secret , Douglass understands the finer points of successful sailing charters.

“There are minor adjustments that need to be made,” says Douglass. “For example, with a six-metre draft like we have on Sea Eagle , it’s vital to explain to guests who may not have experience on sailing yachts our limitations versus opportunities. We may not be able to get all the way into this bay, but we can offer this other experience in return.”

There are other subtleties that set Sea Eagle apart – less glamorous than the sailing capability but no less vital for its global chartering aspirations. The Pacific specifically tests the boundaries of a conscientious vessel’s garbage-management systems. Ironically, many will run out of cold storage before they run out of fuel. Having systems in place to manage overlooked factors such as this is vital to effective and low-impact chartering.

As experienced charter brokers will tell you, aligning the right client with the right boat in the right place is tough. Many owners are taking their yachts on global programmes that are redefining yachting’s global boundaries. is looking to follow suit.

However, the bread and butter of the charter market remains the Mediterrranean/Caribbean split season. Attracting clients to the furthest reaches of the Pacific, although richly rewarding for those willing, is still a challenge.

“Rather than sporadically picking up charters, the vision we have is to slowly build a network of charter guests that have an emotional investment in the yacht and are interested in its programme – people who have been on board, perhaps in the more traditional destinations, who we can share the yacht’s plans with and look 12 to 24 months down the line,” concludes Douglass.

“We are embarking on a busy and challenging programme. It’s great to have an owner who’s open to discussion and happy to let the expertise, both on board and in various fields or regions, guide us. Our approach is always to assess the process and make sure we are operating the boat as safely and effectively as possible.”

Sea-Eagle-II-Royal-Huisman

Royal Huisman reveals new details of 81m flagship sailing yacht Sea Eagle

Dutch shipyard Royal Huisman has revealed new details and never-before-seen images of the world's second-largest aluminium sailing yacht  Sea Eagle , three years after her delivery.

The 81-metre three-masted schooner left the shipyard in 2020 in the shadow of the pandemic and joined the ranks as the seventh-largest sailing yacht in the world. Since then, she has been on a non-stop circumnavigation and has more than 45,000 nautical miles under her keel. From the Caribbean to the Galapagos and on to the South Pacific Islands, she has proven her mettle as a true adventurer, but the finer details of her design and build have remained a well-guarded secret up until now.

The record-breaking vessel was commissioned by a visionary owner looking to upgrade from his existing 43-metre by the same name, also built by Royal Huisman. A power pairing of Dykstra Naval Architects and Mark Whiteley Design saw the two studios work together to bring his vision to life: it was to be a "true sailor's yacht" and world traveller favouring function over frills, with powerful performance that could be easily managed.

After a four-year build, Sea Eagle emerged from the shed in Vollenhove almost twice the length and five times the volume of her predecessor and was, at the time, the largest project undertaken by the shipyard. Her Flag Blue hull, Chevy White superstructure, trio of masts and sheer size make her unmistakable.

A powerful Panamax rig comprises three carbon masts, each growing a little taller from bow to stern, with a maximum air draft of 61 metres allowing her to clear the Bridge of the Americas when crossing from the Caribbean to the Pacific. The main mast features a crow’s nest operated by the touch of a button that whisks guests up to the top for a true bird's eye view at anchor.

She canters along at 21.5 knots in moderate breeze thanks to her powerful rig flying 2,580 square metres upwind and 3,552 square metres downwind. All three mainsails can easily be hoisted simultaneously thanks to powerful hydraulics – taking no more time than required for a sloop half the size – and lowered with the help of carbon fibre roller furling booms. 

She is fitted with a serious kit on deck too that includes 34 winches, the largest of which – for the yankee, staysail sheets and mizzen sheet - have a pulling load of 18,000 kilograms. Below the waterline, a fin keel minimises wetted surface to enhance speed and heeling, while a five-metre-tall carbon composite rudder is the largest ever produced. Her masts, booms, rigging, and winches were manufactured by Royal Huisman's specialist rigging company Rondal.

A plumb bow, near-full-length waterline and beamy transom work twofold to give her a modern profile as well as better sail-keeping capabilities for long passages at sea. “It may look like a contemporary modern sailing yacht now but in 50 years' time it will be a classic,” said a representative of  Dykstra Naval Architects .

“The essence of the yacht’s appeal is illustrated by long, uninterrupted lines of glass, a subtle sweep of superstructure and a blister to enclose the bridge," explained Mark Whiteley. "As the design developed we honed in on a faceted feature which helps give Sea Eagle her distinctive modern signature, lightens the overhangs and reflects the chine. The overall effect gives the superstructure ‘a curved tension’ that draws the eye from bow to stern. The proportions and low profile were driven by the owner’s request to have a continuous floor from the exterior dining space, right through the large main saloon to the forward dining saloon, with no steps.”

Sliding glass panels separate the deck saloon from the exterior deck without a threshold to step over, which can be opened to create a continuous space with a U-shaped bar at the centre that straddles both inside and out. Steps on either side of the saloon lead up to the flybridge, which acts as the main social hub on board where guests can enjoy 360-degree views and observe sailing operations. A secondary lounge and formal dining area is found forward between the main and mizzen mast on the main deck, with seating for up to 16 guests and wraparound windows.

Accommodation is confined to the lower deck with six cabins hosting up to 12 guests, while accommodations for 14 crew are accessed via a concealed entrance at the foremast near the tender bay, which houses an eight-metre tender. A first glimpse inside shows a bright and pared-back interior with a neutral colour palette, Alpi Walnut bulkheads and very few extravagances.

Access to the deck and interior from the water is supplied through foldout boarding platforms on both port and starboard sides, while the stern platform provides access to the sea for guests wishing to make use of the toys or go for a swim. 

"Supersized sailing yachts like this are no longer an impossible dream," said Royal Huisman’s CEO Jan Timmerman. “Continual innovation, accumulated expertise and rigorous self-challenge have come together through our highly skilled and dedicated team to produce Athena , Sea Eagle and, currently in-build, the world’s largest sloop Project 410 ."

The 85-metre Project 410 is one of three superyachts currently under construction at Royal Huisman, including the 65-metre Project 408, also known as Aquarius II , and the world's largest sportfish built under the codename Project 406 .

SEA EAGLE II: Royal Huisman has built the world’s largest aluminium sailing yacht

Sea Eagle under way

The 81-meter contemporary schooner was perfectly on schedule for her delivery date, but Covid-19 restrictions in the Netherlands prevented the finishing touch from being completed.

Despite the strict regulations introduced last spring, the shipyard was able to get up in a very short time.

All this allowed the team to safely “pick up where they left off” in these extraordinary times and with very high quality standards that have made this shipyard an important reference all over the world.

Nearly all board systems, such as gensets, air conditioning, waste water treatment and electronics, were thoroughly tested in the year prior to launch to avoid any surprises during the commissioning stage.

Sea Eagle sailing

Spectacular speeds over 21 knots can be achieved by the world’s largest aluminium sailing yacht by powering up SEA EAGLE II’s Rondal rig, which can carry over 3500 square meters of sail area evenly distributed over her carbon Panamax masts.

The full sail area is controlled by 34 winches from sailing system integrator Rondal.

The largest winches for the world’s largest aluminium sailing yacht – for the yankee, staysail sheets and mizzen sheet runners – are capable of a tremendous 18 tons (18000 kg) pulling load.

Thanks to these record numbers, SEA EAGLE II will be ranked among the top 10 largest sailboats in the world.

Upon delivery to her owner, she will be the largest aluminium sailing yacht in the world.

Her masts are over 60 meters high and the yacht has a 4-meter rudder, the largest ever built with this material.

The yacht will also have a hydraulic crow’s nest, which will rise up the main mast and give supreme 360-degree views out to sea.

The interiors consist of 6 cabins for 12 guests, a master suite and a cabin for 13 crew members.

Sea Eagle stern

Mr. Yin has wanted to reaffirm his confidence in the shipyard’s abilility to build his ultimate dream yacht, commissioning the SEA EAGLE II.

Royal Huisman ‘s team has make this great dream come true, keeping the promise ” If you can dream it, we can build it”.

"Sea Eagle" : The largest aluminium sailing yacht in the world

Sören Gehlhaus

 ·  11.02.2024

The super schooner: The Rondal rig features up to 3,500 square metres of cloth from Doyle Sails, which controls 34 Rondal winches - the strongest of which pull loads of up to 18 tonnes. Boat speeds of over 20 knots are logged even in moderate wind conditions

When the beams bend on board a sailor, the cause is usually not a mendacious load, but a real one. One that comes from above. Imagine the following scenario: The wind picks up, the tension on the forestay and backstay gradually increases and all of a sudden the doors below deck are reluctant to open. On some sailing boats, "proper zing" is not an unusual litmus test for the height of the loads and the quality of the interior fittings, but on supersailors it is unthinkable. Of course, there is no shortage of forces, but the shipyards' promises of excellence, the astronomically high expectations of customers and the pedantry of the classification societies involved put a stop to them. In addition, comprehensive sensor technology provides information about the rig forces occurring during sailing operations.

On "Sea Eagle", an 81 metre long aluminium hull forms the basis for a huge and very real distorted image. Three masts, up to 61 metres high, guide 3,552 square metres of sailcloth on spacious courses and ensure maximum working loads of 125 tonnes. So far, so feasible. Not only did Royal Huisman set out to build the world's largest aluminium sailing yacht, the customer also wanted a superstructure that spanned almost half the deck - and with its continuous window areas, was far less flexible than the deck below. So how do you bring the rigid and flexible elements together without provoking material fatigue? The solution was found through structural calculations using the finite element method (FEM): an adhesive that aerospace specialists developed together with the class specifically for this project and that compensates for movements of up to two centimetres. The method was only used for the front part of the superstructure; the aft part was conventionally welded to the deck.

Six months of planning for a stable yet flexible structure

Below the waterline, a flexible hull structure was even desirable, as this gives way and prevents the boat from suddenly breaking through, for example when pitching into large waves. As is usual for aluminium constructions, particular attention was paid to longitudinal stiffening to prevent torsion. This structural puzzle alone took six months of planning, while exoskeletons helped the Huisman employees with the actual welding. In the end, "Sea Eagle" was delivered in 2020 in the shadow of the pandemic, four years after the order was received. The royal Dutch shipyard, which has a 60-year tradition of working with aluminium and is based not far from the IJsselmeer, joined forces with Dykstra Naval Architects from Amsterdam, which had already worked with Huisman on the steel "Athena" (90 metres) and with other shipyards on "Hetairos" (67 metres), "Black Pearl" (106 metres) and "Koru" (127 metres).

A real tall ship, interpreted in a modern way.

The specifications for the super schooner matured in the client's mind while sailing around the world on his 43-metre sloop of the same name and shipyard origin. He was looking for an extremely comfortable and roomy yacht with excellent long-distance qualities to see as much of the world as possible under sail. A true tall ship interpreted in a modern way: practical, powerful and safe, but easy to handle. In the meantime, more than 45,000 nautical miles have been logged; "Sea Eagle" also cruised between the French Polynesian islands of Moorea and Bora Bora and passed the outer reef there at 22 knots.

Racing on the reef: In smooth seas and with Schrick in the Yankee sheet, "Sea Eagle" quickly reaches a hull speed of 22 knots off Moorea.

The reason for the fast progress is the high schooner rig. Dykstra's chief designer Erik Wassen says of the rigging: "There is less impact on the environment when a ship starts quickly in a light breeze. The powerful rig geometry can be quickly adapted to the conditions for safe and effective mileage collection." Dykstra carried out CFD computer simulations and modelled tests, both in the towing tank at TU Delft and in the wind tunnel at the Wolfson Unit in Southampton.

Important: The "Sea Eagle" has Panamax dimensions

The free passage through the Panama Canal is an ecological advantage. The 61 metre high bottleneck at the western end, the Bridge of the Americas, forces yachts without "Panamax dimensions" and with a high slip rig to lay masts or make a diversion of 8,000 miles. The three carbon palms of "Sea Eagle" increase in height aft and decrease in diameter. Our colleagues from BOOTE EXCLUSIV were able to see the quality of the laminating process for themselves during a visit to Rondal. There, the masts were created in one piece from prepregs, which were cured under vacuum and at 100 degrees Celsius and given two coats of varnish. The angular three 16 metre long booms, in which the battened mainsails are stored, took on a similar shape.

The on-board hydraulics are powerful enough to unfurl the headsail and all three mainsails at the same time without any problems - which should take no longer than with a sloop half the size. Rondal also supplied 34 winches, twelve of which rotate on deck and 22 below deck. The largest drums, for Yankee, staysail and mizzen sails, can handle tensile loads of up to 18 tonnes each. The electrical and hydraulic energy is mainly supplied by two diesel generators. In addition, each of the two 1,081-kilowatt main units from Caterpillar are used for the hydraulics. These move the 1,104-tonner at speeds of up to 22 knots via conventional shaft drives. When motoring at an economical twelve knots, 200 litres of diesel per hour rush through the pipes. Load peaks are absorbed by a powerful battery bank in the engine room amidships, while the main switchboard with power management and parallel connection for synchronising the generators regulates the uninterrupted and efficient power supply.

Anyone can travel on the "Sea Eagle" - for 600,000 euros per week

In its primary use, the "Sea Eagle" is not a motorised glider like the few large formats above it in the Ranking of the longest sailing yachts that push plenty of steel through the sea. At the cross, the crew unfurled over 3,500 square metres of Doyle sails. The sailmakers had to ensure smooth interaction between all three masts under a variety of sail loads - a complex task given the cloth architecture of up to eight different sails. However, running rigging is barely visible on deck: foresail sheets are immediately lowered behind the slides, and the two forward mainsheets are reeved into the superstructure via windward and leeward tackles. Only the mizzen sail runs over two head-sized rollers at the stern.

Safety is a particularly high priority on charter trips, for which guests, some of whom have no sailing experience, have been coming on board since 2023. The flybridge schooner sails Scandinavia, Scotland and the Mediterranean in summer and the Caribbean in winter. The "Sea Eagle" is currently in Stockholm - at Marine Traffic you can follow their journey.

Anyone who pays Burgess 600,000 euros per week will experience an unforgettable charter trip. Although this only covers the use of the yacht, the offer seems tempting. For comparison: motor yachts of a similar length, but with twice the interior volume, are listed for just under one million euros a week. A big difference, not to mention the consumption advantage. This is because the charter rate does not include fuel costs, catering and tips for the crew.

A crow's nest as a lift almost to the top

The dimensions of the rig are experienced most directly in the crow's nest. In the mast basket, it extends beyond the third pair of spreaders of the 60 metre high main mast. Guests sail past shrouds and stays made by the Swiss manufacturer Carbo-Link. Only the backstays are made of Kevlar at the customer's request, otherwise carbon fibres form cable diameters of up to 55 millimetres. The maximum specifications of the Dykstra designers: a rigidity of 435 meganewtons and expected working loads of 125 tonnes.

Excursion into the rig: If you board the crow's nest via the flybridge, two halyards will pull you out over the third pair of spreaders of the main mast, which reaches a good 60 metres high, if desired

The eyes, fork terminals and the spreader end fittings integrated into the cables are made of titanium. Carbo-Link has projects with working loads of up to 500 tonnes and cable diameters of 100 millimetres in the pipeline on land - so a yacht three times the size of "Sea Eagle" could be equipped with standing rigging.

Interior and exterior should be connected

It is not only the technical marvellous achievements that make up this exceptional construction. The shipyard and designer, Mark Whiteley was also awarded the interior contract, succeeded in actually creating the connection between inside and outside that is often praised in yachting. The saloon and cockpit form a single unit via a bar consisting of two horseshoe elements. The round bar is divided into two halves by a sliding glass door, which transforms the saloon into a film theatre should the weather prevent an outdoor screening on the aft deck. This is also possible in rough seas, with handrails on the sofa backs. Through the lobby and past the galley, day toilet and captain's cabin, you reach the foremost room with a dining area and plenty of lounge furniture. Towards the front, the winches and foremast draw the eye, while there is a clear view to the sides. Originally, the forward part of the superstructure was also intended to be suitable for business meetings.

We were able to walk through the 1,150 gross tonnes of interior space for twelve guests and 14 crew members during construction in Vollenhove and walk down the twin staircases amidships to the guest accommodation. The two equally large master suites at the very stern were striking, although at the time they were intended for private use only. The lower deck also has three double cabins and a fitness room to starboard, which can be converted into a cabin for children, the nanny or staff.

It is to be sailed: Handrails are also waiting in the bathroom

Whiteley followed his design maxim of timeless elegance in an almost radical way. The entire interior design relies on three types of wood: Natural oak lies on the floor, ceiling and skirting boards are made of stained wenge and Alpi American Walnut is used as the main veneer - including in the bathrooms, into the front of whose washbasins and cabinets Whiteley integrated beige-coloured leather handrails at the top. In other words, the morning or evening toilet is also used here when sliding the bed, which once again emphasises the consistent multi-sail design. The striking wavy grain of the walnut veneer extends the length of the corridors and living areas horizontally and emphasises the British designer's clever and well thought-out restraint: "This yacht never stops being stylish," he concludes.

This yacht never stops being stylish"

Mark Whiteley also worked out the straight-lined exterior alongside Dykstra. In the centre of the open deck areas, the long glass superstructure is complemented by a slender flybridge. Mark Whiteley explains: "The flybridge deck provides a large leisure area for owners and guests; or for those steering from one of the outside helm stations. They are designed to blend in with the surrounding superstructure. The fly is also a platform for viewing the sculptural trees, which visually reflect the rigour of the lines." The crew have been given their own deckhouse on the deck in front of the foremast, which takes them directly to the eight cabins. Aft of this is an oversized mess room and the galley on the port side.

Angular hull for good sailing characteristics

The angular "Sea Eagle" shape contrasts with traditional tall ships with their round gates and clipper prows, such as those that adorn the only slightly longer "Gorch Fock". Erik Wassen from Dykstra categorises the hull design from a hydrodynamic point of view: "The modern design enables a wide transom and an almost continuous waterline, which promises better sailing characteristics and fast and comfortable crossings. Due to the higher stability, the boat sails with less heel, which significantly improves comfort on board." The width of 12.30 metres, which drastically narrows one hull edge towards the waterline, ensures high dimensional stability. Due to the already large displacement, the fixed keel "only" has to be six metres deep.

Angular: Dykstra calculated a high-performance hull with chines and a constricted waterline, Mark Whiteley designed the superstructure monolithically

The conceptualisation of the 1250-kilogram rudder led to a tendency towards oversizing. As there was no empirical data from comparable yachts, calculation models had to be used. As a result, the carbon coker plunges deep into the five metre long blade, which was subjected to the expected forces on a specially constructed test rig. Rondal also laminated optical sensors into the 220 carbon fibre layers, which provide real-time information about the load situation. This data will also benefit Royal Huisman's next sailing superlative: the Vollenhoven dream factory is working on an 85-metre-long slup, also made of aluminium.

Sea Eagle II

A record breaker for Royal Huisman as its largest launch, Sea Eagle II is also the world’s largest aluminum sailing yacht . The Dutch yard has built hundreds of vessels during its 136-year history, but this 266-footer, with 200-foot-high carbon masts and a sweeping, 37,000-square-foot sail plan, is its most sophisticated—and magnificent—to date.

Royal Huisman built the first Sea Eagle for the same owner, a Taiwanese businessman and veteran sailor, who took delivery in 2015. Eclipsing the original Sea Eagle by 120 feet, Sea Eagle II is a Panamax schooner designed for transiting the Panama Canal, her masts clearing the tall Bridge of the Americas on the Pacific side by only a few feet.

“I visited the yacht regularly during a nearly four-year build, and each time I was struck by her huge scale,” says Mark Whiteley, who designed both the interior and, with Dykstra Naval Architects , the exterior. “With so much open deck space, she has a very clean, proportional look.”

The interior has the same sense of considered airiness. Sustainable Alpi-walnut wall panels, wenge trim and natural oak floors provide a calming backdrop, while the owner’s collection of modern art adds splashes of color. Since it’s a sailing yacht, the owner mandated handrails across the cabin, which Whiteley wrapped in leather as a design motif. The yacht will be used to host business meetings, so the large salon has copious seating, plus a 16-place dining table for formal occasions.

The slender hull by Dykstra, mated to the carbon-fiber masts, makes Sea Eagle II instantly recognizable. Despite being a cruiser with accommodations for 11 guests and 14 crew, the yacht sails at an impressive 21.4 knots. The Integrated Sailing System by Royal Huisman’s sister company, Rondal , includes those carbon masts with furling booms, automatic deck winches, mainsail furling systems and rigging with load sensing. Even the first-of-its-kind carbon rudder, with load sensors, is high-tech—the type of painstaking attention to detail, as in the rest of the design, that helps the huge yacht soar.

Sea Eagle

Sea Eagle, the world largest aluminium sailing yacht

Her design alone took a year to complete. Her build took a further four.  But the 81m schooner, Sea Eagle, splashed by Royal Huisman in 2020, was worth the wait. Having clocked up an astonishing 45,000 nm since she first set sail, she is one of the 10 largest sailing yachts in the world and the largest aluminium-built one overall. ( Here all our posts about Royal Huisman )

Sea Eagle

Best Naval Architecture

Winner of the “Best Naval Architecture” category at the Design & Innovation Awards 2021, Sea Eagle was commissioned by an owner with a very clear vision honed over years aboard her predecessor, the 43m sloop, Sea Eagle, penned by Germán Frers and Rhoades Young Design. 

Sea Eagle

Sea Eagle, by Dykstra Naval Architects e Mark Whiteley 

He wanted a practical, powerful, safe yet easy to manage craft, a brief used by Dykstra Naval Architects and Mark Whiteley Design used as their springboard for their design. 

Sea Eagle

Sea Eagle is clothed in glorious waterlines topped by a powerful Panamax rig spanning three masts, the tallest of which towers 61m over her deck. She spreads 2,580 sqm of sail upwind and 3552 sqm downwind. 

Sea Eagle

According to Erik Wassen of  Dykstra Naval Architects, this combination of sleek waterlines and that edgy rig deliver “huge stiffness under sail, improved stability and thus onboard comfort. The sail plan is easy to adapt to changing weather too”.

Sea Eagle

All the big names in the sector chipped in with the Dykstra team on the rig: Rondal supplied the 34 winches and furlers for the electro-hydraulic sail system, Carbo-Link the carbon rig and Doyle Sails the sails. The result? Sea Eagle confidently delivered 21.5 knots in moderate winds in her sea trials.  

Sea Eagle

Sea Eagle: powerhouse of technology

The 81, schooner is a powerhouse of technology and technical solutions, all of which complement her sleek profile, axe bow, almost vertical transom and long superstructure which includes a deckhouse topped by the fly. Mark Whiteley of Mark Whiteley Design told us that the long strip of glazing on the deckhouse perfectly encapsulates Sea Eagle’s seductive charm.  

Sea Eagle

“As the design developed, we honed in on a faceted feature which helps give Sea Eagle her distinctive modern signature, lightens the and softens all the various elements making up this volume,” he says. “The overall effect gives the superstructure ‘a curved tension’ that draws the eye from bow to stern”. 

Sea Eagle

Sea Eagle’s proportions and low profile are also the result of the owner’s brief. “He wanted to have a continuous floor from the exterior dining space, right through the large main saloon to the forward dining saloon, with no steps. Thanks to the expansive glazing the latter also has direct contact with the natural environment,” concludes Whiteley. 

Sea Eagle

The lower deck is given over to accommodation with a master suite joined by a further six double guest staterooms, one of which can convert to a gym. The décor here centres around a white colour scheme paired with pale woods. The furnishings are simple very much in line with the owner’s request for a functional, reliable, frill-free yacht.  

Sea Eagle

Sea Eagle was designed and built to explore the world’s seas. Most importantly, she is the work of a yard that, as Royal Huisman’s own CEO Jean Timmerman, explains, is now building Project 410, an 85m that will soon be crowned the world’s largest sloop. “But we also some truly breath-taking concepts,” he continues. “Like the 85m APEX 850 and the innovative 100m ketch, WING100, that are attracting a lot of interest. All they need now is a visionary owner to turn these revolutionary sailing yachts into reality”.

SEA EAGLE II: ‘Best Naval Architecture Sailing Yachts’

…who feel particularly honored by the recognition by Boat International’s Design & Innovation Awards: winner of the ‘Best Naval Architecture Sailing Yachts’ Award. The jury says: “She is not just a large cruising yacht with global capability but a beautiful boat that sails well.”

SEA EAGLE II – Naval Architecture: Dykstra Naval Architects – Exterior styling: Dykstra Naval Architects and Mark Whiteley Design – Interior: Mark Whiteley Design – Rig and sail handling: Panamax masts and Integrated Sailing System by Rondal – Builder: Royal Huisman (2020)

The dramatic and purposeful contemporary lines of the stunning 81m / 266ft three-masted schooner SEA EAGLE II with plumb bow, powerful Panamax rig and effortless mile-devouring performance ensure that she will be recognised with admiration, on passage or at anchor, all over the globe. Realised by Royal Huisman, together with an outstanding team of client and industry colleagues, SEA EAGLE II is the world’s largest aluminium sailing yacht. A true headturner.

The Owner’s brief for SEA EAGLE II was very clear: the yacht needed to offer outstanding passage-making performance so that the owner could take in as much of the world under sail as possible. Above all, it had to be a true sailor’s superyacht – practical, powerful, safe, sea kindly and easily managed. The owner’s priorities were functionality and resilience, favouring simplicity and reliability over unnecessary frills.

View all yachts for charter

As well as being an aesthetically alluring yacht, one with real presence on the water, this is a yacht that regularly sails at double-digit speeds and takes a matter of minutes to go from anchored to sailing. She can harness the natural power of the wind and convert it into a blistering 22 knots, her vertical bow slicing through the waves with barely a whisper. SEA EAGLE is a yacht that places you at one with nature.

The sheer exhilaration of sailing at this speed cannot be overstated. There is a feeling of being connected to a natural force. This pace also makes it easy for her to relocate quickly, allowing you to sail where you want without sacrificing valuable time. When the day is calm, the yacht’s two large engines keep the itinerary on track.

Despite her ocean-taming pace and beguiling good looks, SEA EAGLE is very comfortable underway, ensuring utmost comfort when moving around on board in any conditions. Her highly experienced crew are available to help with your every need.

At anchor her vast deck spaces transform into a playground of possibilities. See the sun set with a cocktail on the flybridge as the chef prepares an informal dinner on the BBQ. Watch a movie on a huge screen in the main deck’s outdoor cinema or climb into the eagle’s nest that rises up the main mast to enjoy thrilling bird’s-eye views of your anchorage.

Enjoy a pre-dinner drink at the inside-outside bar on the main deck aft or take lunch in the open-air dining table shaded by the overhang before stretching out on the expansive aft deck. For special occasions there’s a formal dining room and lounge with wraparound views.

If you want to venture ashore to explore, she has a midships boarding platform that can be used in any conditions. Otherwise access to the water is via the folding swim platform aft, where the crew is ready to help you enjoy a vast range of watertoys, from waverunners to e-foils, SeaBobs to sailing dinghies, scuba diving kit to kayaks and SUPs.

When it’s time for bed, she has extremely versatile accommodation on the lower deck with two master suites, three twin suites and a gym that can convert into a children’s cabin, a nanny’s cabin with cot, or a staff cabin.

If your guests are seeking to understand the epic power of nature, appreciate the wonder of the ocean and revel in a seven-star retreat, no other sailing yacht delivers like SEA EAGLE. All this while enjoying a wonderful holiday afloat with a crew that everyone loves. Book your unforgettable charter today.

Ship attacked by Yemen’s Houthi rebels in fatal assault sinks in Red Sea in their second sinking

Yemen’s Houthi rebels sink another ship in the Red Sea killing at least one sailor on board. AP news director Jon Gambrell explains the ongoing attacks by Houthis in the Red Sea as a second ship targeted sinks.

Yemen’s Houthi rebels released video on Wednesday purporting to show their attack which sank a Greek-owned transport ship in the Red Sea. The video shows two large explosions on a bulk carrier at sea.

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — A bulk carrier sank days after an attack by Yemen’s Houthi rebels , who are believed to have killed one mariner on board, authorities said early Wednesday. It was the second ship sunk in the rebels’ campaign targeting Red Sea shipping.

The sinking of the Tutor marks what appears to be a new escalation by the Iranian-backed Houthis in their campaign of attacks on ships in the vital maritime corridor over the Israel-Hamas war in the Gaza Strip .

The attack comes despite a monthslong U.S.-led campaign in the region that has seen the Navy face its most-intense maritime fighting since World War II, with near-daily attacks targeting commercial vessels and warship.

The Liberian-flagged, Greek-owned-and-operated Tutor sank in the Red Sea, the British military’s United Kingdom Maritime Trade Operations center said in a warning to sailors in the region.

“Military authorities report maritime debris and oil sighted in the last reported location,” the UKMTO said. “The vessel is believed to have sunk.”

The Houthis late Wednesday released footage showing their attack on the Tutor, acknowledging they used two different drone boats to hit the vessel from both its side and the stern.

The U.S. military did not respond to requests for comment over the sinking.

The Tutor came under attack about a week ago by a bomb-carrying Houthi drone boat in the Red Sea. John Kirby, a White House national security spokesman, said on Monday that the attack killed “a crew member who hailed from the Philippines.” The Philippines has yet to acknowledge the death, but the man who had been aboard the Tutor has been missing for over a week in the Red Sea, which faces intense summertime heat.

The use of a boat loaded with explosives raised the specter of the attack in 2000 on the USS Cole, a suicide assault by al-Qaida when the warship was at port in the Yemeni city of Aden, killing 17 on board. The Cole is now part of a U.S. Navy operation in the Red Sea led by the aircraft carrier USS Dwight D. Eisenhower to try and halt the Houthi attacks, though the rebels continue their assaults.

The Houthis have launched more than 60 attacks targeting specific vessels and fired off other missiles and drones in their campaign that has killed a total of four sailors. They’ve seized one vessel and sunk two since November. A U.S.-led airstrike campaign has targeted the Houthis since January, with a series of strikes May 30 , killing at least 16 people and wounding 42 others, the rebels say.

In March, the Belize-flagged Rubymar carrying fertilizer cargo sank in the Red Sea after taking on water for days following a rebel attack.

The Houthis have maintained that their attacks target ships linked to Israel, the United States or Britain. However, many of the ships they’ve attacked have little or no connection to the ongoing Israel-Hamas war.

“It is deplorable that innocent seafarers are being attacked while simply performing their jobs, vital jobs which keep the world warm, fed, and clothed,” the shipping industry said in a joint statement Wednesday.

“This is an unacceptable situation, and these attacks must stop now,” it said.

The war in Gaza has killed more than 37,000 Palestinians there, while hundreds of others have been killed in Israeli operations in the West Bank. It began after Hamas-led militants attacked Israel on Oct. 7, killing about 1,200 people and taking around 250 hostage.

A recent report by the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency said that container shipping through the Red Sea has declined by 90% since December because of the attacks. As much as 15% of the world’s maritime traffic flows through that corridor.

Meanwhile, the Houthis said on Wednesday that U.S.-led airstrikes targeted Raymah, a province in Yemen under rebel control. The Houthi-controlled SABA news agency described a local radio station’s building as being “totally destroyed” in the strikes. About a week earlier, the Houthis said similar strikes killed two people and wounded nine others, without saying if those hurt were fighters or civilians.

Later in the day, SABA also reported U.S.-led strikes targeting the port city of Hodeida.

The U.S. military’s Central Command said in a statement early Thursday it destroyed “one ground control station and one command and control node in a Houthi-controlled area of Yemen” in the strikes. It also claimed destroying two Houthi drone boats in the Red Sea as well over the last 24 hours.
