One of the world’s largest sailing yachts just made history as being the largest megayacht ever to undergo a refit in New Zealand. Athena, the Royal Huisman launch coming in at 295 feet LOA (90 meters), wrapped up a nine-month stay at Orams Marine Services.

Borkumriff IV is a 164-foot schooner Royal Huisman Shipyard completed this spring for a repeat client, a genteel European whose visit to the Dutch yard happened to coincide with mine last year. It is a rare pleasure to see such a yacht under construction and talk with her owner about his dreams for her. His earlier Huisman yacht, Borkumriff III, was completed in 1994. The latest rendition is Royal Huisman's largest delivery to date, but will be eclipsed next year by the 292-foot Athena.
