Based on the striking profile of early cutters, this elegant yacht built by Royal Huisman combines classic traditional lines – including plumb bow and elegant counter stern – with an invigorating aptitude for performance and fast passage making.

The elegant lines are drawn by Gerard Dykstra and Partners, whose expertise in performance-oriented classic yachts is arguably second to none. They have married sympathetic period features such as gentle sheer, open deck space, neatly-proportioned deckhouses and skylights, above the waterline, with a modern, easily driven hull shape below. The canoe underbody sports a fully ballasted 62 tons lifting keel, carbon spade rudder and low wetted-surface areas.

With the Alustar hull and tall carbon spars, this is a lightweight yacht whose seakeeping and performance is completed by style, comfort and amenity below. Rhoades Yound Design drew upon classic references and traditional craftsmanship for a mellow and invitingly luxurious interior.

Below deck, the KAMAXITHA impresses with a convincing classic maritime style. There are a lot of highlights to discover: For example, one of the guest cabins is designed for wheelchair users. In the Lower Saloon a veritable bar with plenty of room for six guests attracts the attention, which would rather be expected on a 229.66 ft motor yacht. The TV lounge with voluminous sofa, wing chair and coffee table creates a comfortable cosiness. The atmosphere is all rounded off by an indoor fireplace. The owner's cabin spreads over two levels and leads to a separate suite own cockpit.
