Time for FLIBS… See you in the Sunshine State?

The 64th edition of the world’s largest in-water event for the superyacht community will open its doors on Wednesday 25 October. For the next five days the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (FLIBS) is expected to attract over 100,000 people… And that will include the Van der Valk management team, buoyed by our recent triumph at the Cannes Yachting Festival.

The major award won by our EDGE 65 in Cannes was great news and we’d love to share more with you about this yacht in Fort Lauderdale. She was built for the same family that built another award-winning Van der Valk called Lady Lene and we’ve also been making waves with other recent launches such as Blue Jeans and Felis.

All these projects benefit from our yard’s unique approach to custom builds in the 25 to 45-metre range and we’d welcome the chance to discuss your personal ideas during FLIBS. The event spans some 90 acres across seven locations and six miles of floating docks, so making an appointment to meet makes good sense. Please email us here or call Yoeri Bijker on +31 626 888 980.

If you are new to our yard and considering touching base for the first time, perhaps we might share this recommendation by Gee Passow, skipper of Lady Lene. “Van der Valk is the best team right now. It’s delightful to work with them, they deliver what they promise.” Kind words indeed, and you can read the full interview with Captain Passow here.
