Van der Valk’s in-build Blue Jeans has been designed – as her name suggests – for casual comfort at sea. Penned by Guido de Groot, the 33 metre raised pilothouse model is defined by a sleek and sporty exterior profile with glass bulwarks offering unhindered views from every angle.
Accommodations on board are laid out as a master suite, two VIP cabins and one twin, with an additional two cabins for crew. Deck spaces are dedicated to relaxation and low key entertaining with a chill-out zone concealed in the forepeak, and a drinks bar, surround-sound system and an expandable dining area that can double as a games table on the sun deck.
For water babies, a hydraulic swim platform provides swift access to the sea or there's a retractable diving board for those looking to make a splash. The swim platform also serves as a launch pad for a Carbon Craft CC130 turbojet tender, which is carried in the garage.
Under the power of her twin 2,600hp engines, Blue Jeans can reach top speeds of around 28 knots. She will be tailored to the needs of her Asia-based owner with delivery scheduled for 2022.
