Van der Valk Continental Two yacht Anemeli launched
by Chris Jefferies
The largest model in the Dutch yard’s Continental Two series to date, Anemeli was developed in collaboration with Ginton Naval Architects. Construction on this project began in January 2016.
Styled inside and out by Guido de Groot, this all-aluminium yacht is one of the first Van der Valk Continental models to feature a fast displacement hull design. The yard added that she was built for a highly experienced owner who requested a hull with a bulbous bow to improve performance and fuel efficiency.
Anemeli has been fitted with a U-shaped foredeck seating area, shaded by a retractable Bimini, while her 6.72 metre beam allows for plenty of interior space. Accommodation for eight guests is split across a master suite, VIP cabin and two twin cabins.
Power comes from a pair of the new generation 1,400hp MAN V12 1900 engines, which have only been available to the market since September 2015. Key features on Anemeli include a VEEM VG120 gyro stabilisation system for a more comfortable cruising experience.
Other superyacht projects currently under development at the Dutch yard include a 24.75 metre compact explorer yacht and a 26 metre yacht from the Van Der Valk Continental Three collection, both of which are due to hit the water before the end of the year.
