Royal Huisman in the Netherlands says that following Covid-19 delays, the sea trials have now been completed for the 266-foot Sea Eagle II, the world’s largest aluminum sailing yacht. Delivery to the owner is now scheduled for July.

Sea Eagle II is designed by Dykstra Naval Architects and Mark Whiteley. She has three carbon Rondal masts and booms and reportedly can achieve speeds faster than 21 knots.

The rig can carry more than 37,600 square feet of sail area that’s controlled by 34 winches. The largest winches are capable of an 18-ton pulling load, according to the builder.
