VanDutch reveals 22m flagship at Cannes Yachting Festival

13 September 2023 • Written by Holly Overton

Italian shipyard Cantiere del Pardo took the opportunity of Cannes Yachting Festival to reveal designs for a new VanDutch flagship, the VanDutch 75.

The 22.3-metre model is one of the first new additions to the fleet since the shipyard's acquisition of the brand in 2020 and is set to make its world debut at the Cannes Yachting Festival in 2024. 

Cantiere del Pardo called in Burdisso & Capponi Yachts&Design to create the design concept that stayed true to the existing VanDutch fleet – such as a high freeboard and sculptural tinted windscreen – but in "a more contemporary and Mediterranean key". The new model is envisioned as the first in a new future range of open boats.

Exterior features include a dinette, two sofas and transformable tables that seat up to 10 guests shaded by an optional soft-top. Ribbed cushions take inspiration from sports cars and reflect a stylistic motif that continues throughout the interior.

The VanDutch 75 offers prospective owners two layout options. The standard configuration centres around a large dinette and open-plan kitchen with an owner's cabin and twin cabin aft and a VIP cabin forward, while the second configuration sacrifices the twin cabin to make way for a larger owner's suite with a desk, sofa and walk-in dressing room.

Two colourways have also been created to appeal to two different audiences: a contemporary "cool" version with pearly briarwoods and a "smooth" version with tawny mahogany, Nero Ardesia wood, copper tones and matte finishes. Other interior features include ribbed stitching, lacquered slats in the ceiling covers that hide the air conditioning vents, and a "luminous porthole" created to add character to windowless walls.

Power comes from three IPS engines for a top speed of 40 knots with capacity for 4,000 litres of fuel. An up-and-down swim platform offers easy access to the water, while a tender garage with a launch and recovery system makes for simple tender operations.

The shipyard also used the occasion to reveal a new version of its Pardo 75 T-Top version in one of its first presentations since the shipyard was acquired by Calzedonia Group last month.
