99' Royal Huisman
FOFTEIN II is a timeless masterpiece; an impressive classic cutter rigged sailing yacht with a beautiful sheer line.
She was designed by German Frers and built 1999 in Aluminium at Royal Huisman in Holland, for an owner whose goal was to cruise the world and follow his passion for diving and filming marine life, particularly whales.
The interior, designed by Pieter Beeldsnijder, is a clear demonstration of the amazing care that has been taken to achieve a traditional and authentic overall appearance and is exquisitely appointed in paneled cherry wood with granite counter tops thus enhancing the simple elegance, warmth and practicality of a true Gentleman´s yacht.
Outside on deck, the varnished teak and the stainless steel dorades and winches create an exclusive and timeless ambience coupled with an ingeniously well designed deck layout.
FOFTEIN II is at the same time both a classic and a modern yacht, and while her appearance is traditional, her sparkling performance results from a fast hull, a large, tapered Aluminium mast and spars and computer-cut sails with semi-automated handling gear. She features a profusion of modern technical systems, chosen for reliability for world cruising.
The yacht features two cockpits; the center cockpit is the social center and leads into the deck house that offers great visibility around the yacht. A second cockpit aft is dedicated to the owner and leads with separate stairs into master suite.
FOFTEIN II offers luxurious comfort, upmost safety and is equipped for worldwide cruising. On her maiden voyage she went to the beautiful Norwegian Fjords and the pack ice of Spitsbergen, subsequently left for the Red Sea followed by an extended world cruise throughout the Indian Ocean into the South East Asia region and beyond.
Foftein II has been with the same owner since launch and has been meticulously maintained throughout her circumnavigation in all respects. Offered with new paint, sails, decks, batteries, standing rigging with fully serviced and up to date engineering systems, she is more than ready for her next adventure.
