  1. World's Largest Sportfish Launched
    The world's largest sportfisher has been officially launched. Known as Project 406 since starting construction, the all-Alustar® aluminium super fisher has been out in the open recently and then towed to her launching position in Amsterdam. She has a design, externally, internally and Naval Architecture-wise by Vripack. Project 406 is designed for an experienced owner who is passionate about fishing. Principal aspects to the yacht include extremely distinctive, with a long bow and high bulwarks sweeping through a clear sheer to a low and uncluttered cockpit aft.
  2. This sportfisher is a 52-meter beast, yes...171-feet long making her the world's largest without any close challenger. Not only is it the largest in terms of length but also general size as it has 6 deck levels. The high 'tuna' tower offers outstanding views with a downward angle on the water for specialized fishing. Apart from its practical function, the tower also offers a superb viewing platform for guests, who can follow all the action below. Project 406 effortlessly blends the ultimate sports fishing experience with genuine superyacht scale, comfort and refinement.
  3. According to Bart M. Bouwhuis, Co-Creative Director at Vripack: "Project 406 is a Sportfisher on steroids. It has the true proportions and long flaring bow of a typical American Sportfish Boat. We paired this with the harmonious feel of a luxurious yacht. It’s a supersized model with super-chic curves, realized on a grand scale." The yacht is safely in the water and for-now is still known at Project 406 as the side nameboards are still covered.
