Wim van der Valk 28m Continental Trawler superyacht design revealed

Wim van der Valk 28m Continental Trawler superyacht design revealed

Wim van der Valk Continental Yachts has revealed the design for a 28m version of the 36.8m Continental Trawler superyacht currently in-build at its yard in The Netherlands.

The design by Guido de Groot Design and Ginton Naval Architects was penned on the basis of the high number of enquiries the yard has received about trawler yachts – normally a smaller build of yacht – in the superyacht size bracket.

‘This particular version, the Raised Pilothouse variant, features the possibility to build the master stateroom on the main deck, thus leaving extra available space on the lower deck level,’ says Yoeri Bijker, 
marketing manager of Wim van der Valk Continental Yachts.

The design features tropical reverse air-conditioning all over the yacht, including in crew areas, 15mm solid teak-laid decks, stainless steel safety rails that Bijker describes as “as thick as a man’s arm”, underfloor heating, double-glazed condensation-free windows, a state-of-the-art ships management system and full navigation, audio visual and remote camera systems.

The project is not yet sold, but Bijker reports the yard has received interest from a number of different parties. The yard offers full customisation of the interior and is open to tweaking the exterior design.

The 36.8m Continental Trawler superyacht currently in build will become the Dutch yard’s new flagship. It was ordered in July 2013, the hull and superstructure were joined earlier this month and it is due to be delivered in April 2015.
