Zeelander releases interior renderings of flagship yacht

21 March 2024 • Written by Dea Jusufi

Zeelander Yachts has revealed the interior renderings of its 23.9-metre flagship model, known as the Zeelander 8. Construction is well underway at Zeelander's facility in Groot-Ammers, with the first unit scheduled for delivery in summer 2024.

Designed by Cor D. Rover, Zeelander 8 is described as an "aesthetic development" of the brand's smaller models while still benefitting from the same speed and low levels of noise and vibrations.

Zeelander 8 features an S-shaped sheerline, raked stern and wrap-around windscreen

Zeelander 8's trademark curved windows and sunroof allow for bright, naturally-lit interiors, with decor that incorporates cream leathers, grey linen upholstery and Macassar ebony cabinetry. High-pressure laminate will also be used on "every strip and panel of the wood" to reduce wear and maintenance.

"The low maintenance requirements ensure that the boat spends more time inuse and less time on the dock," explained Zeelander founder Sietse Koopmans. "It is a philosophy that Zeelander also extends to its rigorous engineering."

The full-length main saloon features sofa seating, a dining area and a helm station. Starboard, a galley is arranged with a custom-built, stainless steel sink with matching tap and an induction cooker.

Accommodation is across three double cabins, with further quarters available for three crew. The master cabin has a king-size bed and en suite bathroom, with the two rooms occupying the yacht's full 6.6-metre beam.

Aft of the master cabin is a large tender garage able to store a Williams 395 Sportjet, with optional racks for twin F5SR Seabobs.

The model also comes with a bathing platform and "innovative" drive-in tender garage, building on the systems developed for the Zeelander 6 and 7.

Zeelander 8 has an anticipated speed of 38-40 knots and will be "whisper-quiet", able to operate at full speed without breaking the 72dBa noise barrier onboard. She will also offer peerless handling regardless of the propulsion options selected.

Zeelander Yachts’ range now includes four models: Zeelander 5, Zeelander 6, Zeelander 7 and Zeelander 8.
