METOLIUS was designed as a high-performance sailing yacht that could suitably sail all oceans regardless of the conditions while providing the comforts and amenities of home. The collaboration of the Royal Huisman Shipyard, German Frers and interior design by Peter Beeldsnijder resulted in a yacht that fulfilled the design brief flawlessly. The sailing yacht has proven her reliability and comfort traveling from the cold and boisterous North Sea, to ghosting through the doldrums, from the varied Alaska breezes to Cape Horn, the Antarctic, the wild Southern Ocean to the trade winds and the Caribbean and mixed conditions of the Mediterranean.

The yacht is a true offshore voyager, with an easily driven hull form and a powerful sailplan engineered to be easily managed by a minimal crew. METOLIUS features a Rondal hydraulic furling spar, headstay and staysail stay as well as hydraulic winches. The sailing yacht has a functional and simple deck layout with a well-protected cockpit.

METOLIUS showcases a timeless interior with an open-plan layout that enhances the sense of space. The interior detailed in varnished teak with an ambiance that exudes elegant warmth with exceptional functionality. The main salon provides the ideal retreat after a day of sailing and her well-equipped galley allows for easy food preparation.

The sailing yacht’s accommodations make her ideal for family living. The yacht’s staterooms include a double-bed master suite, two staterooms with upper and lower berths, and separate crew quarters and head, all crafted to the highest Huisman standards.

METOLIUS has had the benefit of outstanding preventative maintenance, and continual refitting.  Most recently many upgrades 2019 and in spring 2020 a mast paint and full rig overhaul, underwater service, interior upgrade and many more maintenance and service items.

The design brief for METOLIUS demanded a high-performance yacht that would handily cruise all oceans in all conditions, with a family crew who required all amenities of home while exploring all points of the globe.  The collaboration of the Royal Huisman Shipyard, German Frers and interior design by Peter Beeldsnijder resulted in a yacht that fulfilled the design brief flawlessly, she has travelled from the cold and boisterous North Sea, to ghosting through the doldrums, from the varied Alaska breezes to Cape Horn, the Antarctic, the wild Southern Ocean to the trade winds and Caribbean and mixed conditions of the Mediterranean. 


The MAIN SALON aboard METOLIUS is very large with an open plan that enhances the sense of spaciousness.  The teak inlaid dining table and Lshaped settee area are to starboard, with two custom dining seats inboard.  Outboard to port is a large and comfortable sofa, facing a hi/low cocktail/game table which, in the lower position, secures two custom teak stools.  Aft in this area is another custom swivel seat.  The main salon is truly a comfortable family living room.

The NAVIGATION STATION adjoins the salon aft to port, with a bench seat that allows the navigator to face forward or aft.  The aft area houses the electronics and communications equipment, with a workspace below.  The radar and computer are outboard, adjacent to a two-tier bookshelf, plus valence bookshelf above.  When facing forward, the navigator sits at a large chart table/office desk, which offers chart storage, filing cabinets and additional storage drawers inboard.

Immediately to starboard of the companionway is a GUEST STATEROOM, with upper and lower single berths and ample storage in drawers, cabinets and a large hanging locker.

Adjoining the main salon, forward to starboard is the well-appointed GALLEY, which has an abundance of cabinet and counter space, beautifully detailed.  Refrigeration is a custom fabricated RHS cold bank refrigerator and freezer system, with refrigerator in the galley, drinks refrigeration in the adjoining area of the salon and a separate deep freeze forward.   The propane stove is a Huisman modified Alpes Mariner, with solenoid shut off and gas alarm.  In addition, there are deep ss sinks, custom fixtures, a Miele microwave oven and abundant storage space.  There are clever details like sliding locker unit allowing easy access to engine space that is positioned centrally.

The OWNERs STATEROOM is forward to starboard, with a double berth, ample stowage in drawers and lockers, writing desk and foldaway seat, and an ensuite head with stall shower. 

The SECOND GUEST STATEROOM is forward of the salon to port, also with two good size upper and lower single berths, plenty of stowage and an opening hatch to the mid deck.  The GUEST HEAD / day head is aft of the stateroom and complete with a full stall shower.

CREW QUARTERS for two, are forward to port, with upper and lower single berths and ample stowage in lockers and drawers, and an ensuite head and shower compartment that is to starboard.  Crew have their own access to deck through the fore hatch in the focsle workshop.

Immediately forward of the crew quarters is a large WORKSHOP/STORAGE AREA, with separate Miele washer and drier, custom fabricated SS freezer, workbench with detachable vice and ample custom storage for hand and power tools. Also, in this area, just below the large foredeck hatch, is a custom sail stowage cabinet for the asymmetrical spinnaker.

The engine is on centreline, between the galley and pump room and cleverly installed below a lead sound-shielded teak engine cover that retracts electrically. 

Outboard to port, forward of the salon is a full pump room, where much of the engineering and mechanical equipment aboard is installed, along with the 100-litre diesel day tank. 

Behind a hatch, aft at the companionway, is a full wet locker, with access to additional machinery further aft.


The deck layout aboard METOLIUS was engineered with safety, seamanship and ease of sail handling as primary requirements. 

The aft cockpit is deep and well protected by the sprayhood / dodger, with seating port and starboard, as well as aft of the 70SS destroyer wheel. The binnacle houses both the steering compass as well as the external VHF handset. 

Lifting the cockpit seats provides access to general storage areas, generally used for safety equipment. 

There is a custom teak dining table that fits in the cockpit sole, which can be in place while sailing.  Removable foot braces fit in both cockpits. 

Running backstay winches are fitted on the cockpit coaming, within easy reach of the helmsman.

The engine control panel is to starboard with two deck mounted foot switches for the bow thruster.

To port of the helm is a panel for the deck lights and a Simrad autopilot control unit.

The control panel for the Rondal rig hydraulics (backstay and vang) is also to port, just forward of the helm.

A well-protected working cockpit aft of the mast has Lewmar 1100 SST/hydraulic primary winches and Lewmar 900 SST/hydraulic secondary winches.  Just forward of the cockpit are two Lewmar 650ST (one 3 speed) winches for handling the mainsail.

Just aft of the mast, there is a grouping of 3 x Rondal stainless steel SW 2000, and 2 x Lewmar 650 SST/hydraulic winches that operate all halyards.  Also, in this area are two Lewmar 460 AST winches on the mast.

This working / crew cockpit also has a teak table and cushions for dining / relaxing when at rest.

Immediately aft of this cockpit are four flush mounted hatches with four sensibly sized Dorade vents, protected by stainless steel grab rails.  The stainless-steel traveller is located just forward of the dodger, well positioned for proper leverage for the main sheet, while keeping the sheet clear of both cockpits.

Stainless genoa and staysail tracks are mounted on the deck.

The clean foredeck has a low bulwark that affords protection with the only protrusions being the Steen windlass and a Dorade vent immediately forward of the inner forestay. 

To starboard of the foredeck hatch are two, in deck storage lockers with flush, teak laid hatches, one for the outboard engines and fuel tanks, the other for two aluminium propane tanks.  The outboard locker has a bilge pump and extractor fan; the gas locker drains directly overboard.

The recessed foredeck hatch is sealed by a compressed air activated gasket and immediately aft of this are two recessed hatches.
