Royal Huisman Belle Fontaine Overview
Built exactly 30 years ago, this boat is one of the true "maxis" of the 1980s, the ocean sprinters that for a long time became status boats, representing speed, glamour and luxury - "maxis" were sometimes called "ocean Ferrari". Designed at one time by Herrmann Frerer Sr., this aluminum boat, after an active racing life, got quite a civil interior from Peter Bildsnyder and now serves quietly in the charter business. More recently this spring the boat changed owners for an unbelievably low price, selling for less than half price instead of the original €950K. The reason for such a dramatic drop in price remains unknown.
