Zeelander reveals more details about Z72 flagship yacht

Dutch yard Zeelander Yachts has revealed new details and images of its largest yacht yet, the Z72.

It comes as construction continues on the first Z72, which will become the yard's flagship on its launch at the end of 2018.

The 22 metre yacht features exterior design handled by Cor D Rover in collaboration with Zeelander's in-house design team, which will "blend stylish appearance with some truly unique superyacht features."

Meanwhile the “sophisticated but comfortable” interior design will be handled entirely in-house and will feature panoramic windows and large social areas.

Key exterior features include an S-Shaped deck line, rounded stern and “more curved surfaces”. When extended, the swim platform will span the length of the boat to over 22 metres.

Zeelander commercial director Leonardo van den Berg explained: “Whilst keeping true to the iconic shape, the Zeelander design has evolved." He added: "The exterior design was inspired by the way Porsche has incrementally evolved its designs over time."

The Z72 will become a "legendary icon," he said. "We believe true yacht building is a form of art. This is the epitome of our craft."

The yard revealed that the yacht's owner has been actively involved in the design process. Being someone who "loves a good party," the yard worked hard to accommodate more of his guests.

Accommodation will be for six guests in three staterooms comprising of a master suite and two guest doubles. The crew quarters will sit on the lower deck, adjacent to the tender garage.

Power will come from triple Volvo Penta IPS engines for a top speed of 40 knots. The Z72 will have a range of 680 nautical miles at 24 knots.
