Billy Budd
Review- Royal Huisman 34m
"Billy Budd"
(sold Jan., 2015)

"Billy Budd" is a rare find on the brokerage market. Originally built as "Saudade" in 1994, this sloop rigged 34M (112' 2") Royal Huisman, was designed by Judel Vrolijk and rendered in aluminum for a client whose criterion was for a comfortable, performance oriented, world cruising yacht. She has been exceptionally well cared for and has had a number of upgrades in her 2010 refit with a focus on selecting reliable systems capable of handling the extreme conditions of exploring in the high latitudes.

Her interior was envisioned by Pieter Beeldsnijder in a style he calls "Art Deco Maritime" which is simple and elegant. Joinery is satin finished mahogany with contrasting wenge inlays. Bulkheads are painted white and the use of indirect lighting and shoji screens over the portlights gives the interior a warm and inviting feel.

"Billy Budd" can accommodate 6 guests in three staterooms and 5 crew in 2 cabins forward. The interior has a split saloon arrangement with the upper saloon area in the deckhouse accessed off the cockpit. In this space there is a dinette with seating to port and navigation station and desk to starboard. You can be out of the weather and still enjoy panoramic views. The stairs forward take you to the lower saloon area which has a large dinette to port and an entertainment lounge area to starboard. Forward from the saloon is the galley and access to crew quarters. A passageway leading aft from the saloon accesses twin guest cabins port and starboard each with ensuites. Aft of the guest cabins is the full beam master with ensuite and tub.

Spars are carbon fiber and a new Nordic "park avenue" boom was added in the 2010 refit. There are dual headstays, as well as a staysail stay, all with hydraulic furlers. Having multiple headsails on furlers allows for tremendous flexibility and with the hydraulic winch package you can have any sail combination with the press of a button; all from the safety of the cockpit aft which features a dual helm setup.

Royal Huisman yachts don't change hands very often and "Billy Budd" represents a unique opportunity to own a pedigreed yacht with a recent refit at an exceptional price.
