33m Van der Valk yacht Blue Jeans begins outfitting

7 June 2021By Miranda Blazeby

Construction is progressing at Dutch yard Van der Valk on the fully custom superyacht project Blue Jeans, which has now begun outfitting.

The finished aluminium hull of the yacht, which is due for delivery in summer 2022, has now been moved to another area of the shipyard.  

Designed by Guido de Groot, the 33 metre yacht will be used for “kicking back and enjoying long days of relaxation” with family and friends, the yard previously said. 

The hull and superstructure have now been joined on Blue Jeans

Designed with extra high ceilings in the main deck and a raised bow, Blue Jeans will include a “wide range of innovative features”. These include a large garage for a Carbon Craft CC130 turbojet tender, which will be launched by a hydraulic swim platform. 

A retractable diving board will also be integrated into the flybridge bulwarks while the main deck lounge will feature balconies to port and starboard. 

The large main deck saloon meanwhile will feature a bar, three separate seating areas and a dining area forward with a “capstan” table that can transform into a games table. Glass integrated into the bulwarks will provide far-reaching ocean views from this area. 

Power will come from two 2600hp engines for a top speed of 28 knots.
