Broker's comments

The Royal Huisman 59 Ketch Whitefly has proven to be a superb cruising yacht with fast passage time. The Royal Huisman 59 Ketch Whitefly has a sea-kindly motion and her construction is exceptionally strong. The well designed accommodation together with excellent facilities make her a most comfortable yacht, both at sea and in harbor. The Royal Huisman 59 Ketch Whitefly constructed by the Royal Huisman Shipyard. This shipyard was and still is the world’s finest builder of aluminium yachts and was a pioneer in constructing what we now call ‘super yachts".
