The groundbreaking big fisher, Royal Huisman motor yacht Project 406, was unveiled as “Special One” just before its first trials on the North Sea on 26 April. The powerful hull of this unique vessel measures 52 metres overall, and its towering profile accommodates six decks.

These remarkable features not only make it the largest, but also the most luxurious true sportfish yacht in the world.

Special One is designed for an experienced owner who is passionate about fishing. Vripack Yacht Design is responsible for the exterior and interior design and naval architecture. Its design is extremely distinctive, with a long bow and high bulwarks sweeping through a clear sheer to a low and uncluttered cockpit aft. The high tower offers views with a downward angle on the water for specialised fishing. Apart from its practical function, the tower also offers a viewing platform for guests, who can follow the action below.

Fishing on superyacht scale

The world’s largest true sportfish yacht effortlessly blends the ultimate sports fishing experience with genuine superyacht scale, comfort, and refinement. The Alustar aluminium hull and superstructure offer strength and resilience, as well as the lighter weight that facilitates smooth and efficient passages from berth to fishing grounds.

According to Royal Huisman, the Special One is not only the largest, but also the most bespoke, finely appointed, meticulously engineered, and most impressive true sportfish yacht anywhere in the world, matching a typical bespoke Royal Huisman motor yacht.
