Van der Valk starts build on 27m Continental Two Anemeli
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 and has been in build since 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 is being built for a highly experienced owner who requested a hull with a bulbous bow to improve speed and fuel efficiency.
Other variations on the Van der Valk Continental Two format include a larger bathing platform for tender storage, freeing up the entire flybridge for dining and relaxing.
Anemeli will also be fitted with a U-shaped foredeck seating area and a 6.72 metre beam to maximise her interior space, which features accommodation for eight split across a master suite, VIP cabin and two twin cabins.
Her drivetrain is also remarkable, as Anemeli will be the first yacht in the world to be fitted with MAN’s most powerful engine set-up, the twin 1,900hp 1900 V12s, which have only been available to the market since September 2015.
Other key features on Anemeli include a VEEM VG120 gyro stabilisation system for a more comfortable cruising experience.
Last month Van der Valk also revealed that it is building hull number three in its Continental Three series.
