Vripack reveals 24m Project Meteor with Van der Valk

1 February 2022• Written by Holly Overton

Dutch studio Vripack has revealed designs for a 24 metre concept developed in collaboration with Van der Valk named Project Meteor.

Project Meteor is designed with inland cruising in mind and was initially developed for an owner in search of a boat that he could use to whisk family to and from their summer house. 

Project Meteor flaunts a champagne-hued hull and superstructure with two sliding roofs and a walkaround deck. It was important that the design was suitable for children so features a "secure superstructure" and plenty of interior volume. "The concept feeds into the growing demand for well-designed boats that enable owners to explore in isolation, with their family, hassle-free," the studio said. 

There are two key lounge areas on board. The first is on the foredeck where guests will find sun pads and a Jacuzzi. The second is, of course, the main saloon which is home to a dining area and a bar opposite as well as a forward lounge spot. The helm station is found forward on the same level, separated from the social space by a television.

The interior features a mix of satin and gloss finishes with gunmetal black diamond-stitched leathers and blue velvet surfaces. The windows are framed with an eggshell white textile to maximise the light filtered into the interior. On the lower deck, two en suite guest cabins can be found with beds positioned to maximise the view out to sea. 

Speed was also a considered factor when developing the designs for Project Meteor. The concept is expected to reach a top speed of 41 knots with the help of retractable foils.

"Project Meteor sets the small boat bar high. Meteor is one of the boldest examples of an extremely powerful Van Der Valk, sculpted for those who dare to defy convention," the studio added.
