BORKUMRIFF IV | New to Camper & Nicholsons Sales fleet

Camper & Nicholsons is delighted to announce its appointment as Central Agent for the sale of BORKUMRIFF IV with Arne Ploch and Tommaso Bilotta - senior listing brokers at Camper & Nicholsons Palma and Miami, respectively.

Borkumriff IV bears the exterior profile of a classic schooner, a look that will make every sailor’s heart beat a little faster. Borkumriff IV was built by Royal Huisman in the Netherlands, a shipyard that is widely regarded as one of the greatest for large luxury sailing yachts, and was launched in 2002.

Reminiscent of the Newfoundland schooners used to hunt huge cod off the coast of north America, the yacht measures 50.58 metres in length (including her bowsprit) and has a sail area of 1,164 square metres across her two masts.

Borkumriff IV was commissioned by an experienced owner who united a shipyard and design team that represent some of the most important names in classic sailing yachts. Her exterior lines come from the design office of American schooner specialist John G. Alden, and her naval architecture was managed by Dutch design house, Dykstra, whose award--winning modern replicas are icons of the sailing superyacht fleet.

The interior was designed by John Munford and features custom furniture and wood panelling in highly polished mahogany, contrasting with the light-coloured ceilings and floors in a way that is pleasing to the eye, makes a nod to tradition, and ensures sufficient brightness.

The interior layout features a saloon and interior dining space on the main deck, and accommodation on the lower deck. The full-beam master suite is to aft and benefits from a separate study, and there are two guest cabins (configured as twins) midship. All the accommodation is en suite. There’s separate accommodation for the crew in generously proportioned cabins, and a sizeable ship’s galley.

Borkumriff IV carries two tenders on her teak decks and can also boast the addition of two canons, which are used to mark the lowering of the flag at sunset.

Built for worldwide cruising, this fast and seaworthy yacht embodies the golden age of yachting. She has only ever been used privately and has been maintained to the highest standards.
