Watch: Van der Valk launches 34m custom motor yacht One

3 June 2024 • Written by Holly Margerrison and Dea Jusufi

Dutch shipyard Van der Valk has launched its custom, 34.1-metre motor yacht named One. The superyacht will soon undergo final outfitting works ahead of her trials in the North Sea.

Previously known as Project 111.11, One was commissioned by experienced owners who have spent more than three decades on the water. They have been heavily involved with the design process, with Guido de Groot responsible for the functional exterior design and Carla Guilhem taking charge of the interior.

The owners initially requested a slightly larger yacht from the shipyard, but a compromise was reached to hit "Van der Valk’s sweet spot for a slightly smaller size". Van der Valk’s head of sales, Yoeri Bijker, explained that the owners’ brief was to "blend their own design with a proven hull form".

The result is a full displacement superyacht utilising the same hull design of award-winning Lady Lene, which acts as a platform for a fully custom superstructure with four decks.

Defined by its straight lines, One showcases forward facing angles and has large windows on the lower deck. Lowered bulwarks allow light to flood the vessel and provide panoramic views.

Construction began in December 2022

Accommodation is for a party of up to 10 across five staterooms, including a full-beam master on the main deck with a walk-in wardrobe. The style has evolved since the initial plans, "shift[ing] away from organic shapes and towards imperfect geometric forms", according to Guilhem.

"We have opted for a futuristic feel with super-smooth rounded shapes and a monochrome look with trims and frames that emphasise the neutral colours," she added.

The configuration revolves around entertaining large groups of people and therefore features a skylounge, a main deck saloon and a multifunctional beach club-cum-sports-garage.

In order to free up space in the aft area, a chase boat, rather than an onboard tender, will accompany the vessel. This provides space for a fold-out platform and a lazarette area with room to store Jet Skis and a gym.

Power derives from a pair of Volvo Penta 750hp engines for a top speed of 14.4 knots.

The shipyard recently won a World Superyacht Award for the 33.7-metre Blue Jeans.
