Royal Huisman’s Ngoni Honored with Two New Awards

Royal Husiman is celebrating the success of their 190 foot/58 meter Ngoni who has just been honored with two awards at the International Superyacht Society Awards of Distinction. The awards ceremony is held annually at the beginning of the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. This year the gorgeous Ngoni took the award for “Best Sailing Yacht 40m+” and was also selected for “Best Interior” from all sail and motor yachts over 80 foot/24 metres delivered to their owners in 2017.

“Build me a beast. Don’t build me a sheep in wolf’s clothing,” was the challenging brief Royal Husiman were charged with by her owner prior to her conception and construction, and these new accolades are further proof that Ngoni is one of the world’s most remarkable large sailing yachts. Her futuristic exterior lines are the work of Dubois Naval Architects, while her award-winning interiors were styled by Rick Baker Ltd.

Clever design features onboard include her sleek silhouette and uncluttered foredeck thanks to a flush hatch set into the teak deck which provides handy concealed storage for a tender and crane. This area also boasts a charming spa pool which can be covered over with another flush hatch when not in use to increase the foredeck surface area. At the other end of the boat the cockpit leads directly into the main salon and features retractable windbreakers which enable the area to be used for dining or socializing even in windy conditions.

The stern features a gorgeous swim platform and large sunpad for relaxing by the water. There is even an Olympic diving board that can be fitted in deeper water for guest usage. Moving into the interior of the yacht, the charming decor boasts vivid red hues balanced by charcoal black and neutral greys which evolve into restful green and blue hues in the guest cabins.

The guest accommodation is to be found on the lower deck and includes a full-beam master suite, one double and one twin cabin which can receive up to six overnight guests. The master suite boasts its own private library or study area, gym and ensuite bathroom. There are also six crew cabins which can accommodate up to nine crew members.
