“One of a kind” - An attractive package which marries though its (aerorig) construction the comfort level of a motoryacht with the sportsmanship of a sailing yacht. DWINGER is unique; a magnificent, innovative sailing yacht with all the advantages of a motor yacht. Her 50 meter aluminium hull was custom built by Royal Huisman, the world leaders in advanced marine technologies, and at 63 meters tall (constructed with 15,000kg of carbon fibre) she holds the world record for largest freestanding mast.


The mast supports two sails totalling 1000m2 which rotate on an aerorig, an advanced sailing system which offers an exceptionally smooth ride when compared to motor yachts and significantly less tilt when compared to regular sailing yachts.


Enhanced comfort through stability is just one of the many advantages that this enticing mega yacht has to offer. A sailing yacht of such grand proportions would normally require a crew of at least fifteen, all of whom need a cabin; this seriously compromises the living space and privacy of the guests.


DWINGER sails with a highly skilled crew of seven. There is so much extra room on board the yacht due to the excellent aerorig system which maximises space and minimizes rigging, that unlike normal sailing yachts, or indeed many motor yachts, she has 100m2 of free garage and also enough deck space allowing her to be stocked full of all kinds of watersports equipment, which can be quickly and efficiently lowered into the sea using her 2500kg deck crane.


Modern design aims to search for green energy and DWINGER meets this target too, at a sailing speed of just 5 knots her self rotating propeller generates 300hp of energy, enough to provide electricity throughout the boat. Solar panels are also in place to make the most of the natural energy from the sun. Always ahead in technology the Dwinger has HIFOG, the most advanced fire safety system available, which permitted her interior designers to include an open kitchen, a luxury popular with all the best Michelin Starred restaurants, allowing the guests to experience the joy of watching the chefs prepare their delicious creations close up.
