New Buizen 52 makes a splash

Two years of design, development and investment have culminated in the launch of the new Buizen 52 – the first new model from Buizen Yachts in over 15 years.

Now keeled, afloat and rigged, the Buizen 52 has crossed its last major hurdles before final fit-out and sea-trials.

The Buizen 52 is an all-new design that continues the company’s philosophy for fundamental quality, luxury fit-out, bluewater capability and ease of sailing. Buizen’s production processes have been enhanced by the application of modern design and construction technology such as CNC cutting, vacuum-infusion hull construction and CAD design for both the interior and exterior.

Buizen Yachts managing director Steve Howe said it was a momentous occasion.

'It has seemed like quite a long couple of years creating a whole new model and we’re immensely proud of the outcome,' Mr Howe said.

'While the Buizen 52 has been built from the DNA of the preceding 48, this model is a new benchmark for Buizen and quite possibly for luxury bluewater cruising yachts in general.

'Buizen Yachts’ core values of quality and capability remain the principal foundations of the 52, and we have taken this philosophy and moved it right to the cutting-edge of yacht design and construction.'

The original brief for the 52 was to have a contemporary European superstructure along with superyacht elements in the deck, interior design, style and finish.

'The external styling and amenity, sailing function and systems design, together with its beautiful interior, layout and finish, sets this yacht apart from any other semi-custom yacht built in Australia,' Mr Howe said.

'I’m very excited to sail it for the first time… the vacuum-infusion hull has resulted in it being lighter and stronger so the yacht has performance inherent in its design.'

The final fit-out is now underway and sea-trials will take place in late January.

A VIP launch event will be held in early February to introduce the yacht to existing and prospective Buizen owners along with VIP guests and key members of the media.
