Van Der Valk reveals 32m raised pilothouse yacht project

Dutch yard Van Der Valk has released details of a 32 metre raised pilothouse motor yacht that is described as a “concept project”. If built, this would be the second largest yacht from the yard so far, behind the 36.8 metre Santa Maria T.

The design and styling was created by Nick Top and Guido De Groot, while the naval architecture was developed in-house with a moderate-V hard chine hull shape.

In a statement, the yard added: “This innovative yacht will meet highly demanding owner’s wishes and comes with a contemporary overall profile harmonised by understated classic elements.” There is no indication as to how long it would take to build the yacht, but the hull and superstructure would both be made from aluminium to RINA class standards.

Accommodation is for up to nine guests split across four cabins including a main-deck owner’s suite. On the lower deck, the VIP cabin would stretch across the entire 7.05 metre beam, while a third double cabin and a twin cabin with a Pullman berth would complete the guest area layout. Meanwhile, the crew quarters on the 32 metre Van Der Valk raised pilothouse yacht would be suitable for a staff of up to six people.

Power would come from a pair of MTU 12V2000 M96L engines capable of pushing the Van Der Valk 32M RPH to an estimated top speed of 18 knots.

Other projects currently under development at the Dutch yard include the Cor D Rover-designed Beach Club series, which was recently expanded to include a 30 metre version.
