Designed by Guido de Groot, the Van der Valk’s Explorer is one of the new generation of motoryachts in the Dutch yard’s portfolio. This range of long-range motoryachts represents a smart combination of the classic & timeless with the bold & original. The yard has gone to great lengths to ensure the best possible sailing and seakeeping qualities for this design, including a distinctive round-bilged hull. Van der Valk Explorer yachts are designed and built to withstand the toughest environments, and boast an extensive fuel capacity that enables them to easily make long ocean passages.

General Arrangement

INTERIOR PLEASURES

Heading into the interior, everything about this new Explorer will revolve around ensuring that the owners and their guests will be able to enjoy the constantly changing views outside in the ideal ambience. The main deck has a luxurious master suite forward with a roomy ensuite bathroom and his & her closets. The area amidships will be occupied by a raised pilothouse with three pilot seats, making this a great place for people to join the captain as the yacht progresses around the world.

THE PULSING HEART

Following on from the 25-metre Dutch Falcon and the 37-metre Santa Maria T, the third yacht in the Explorer range will be a 28-metre raised pilothouse boat. Built entirely in strong, lightweight aluminium and sporting a fast displacement hull, her twin MAN V12 1650 hp engines will give an estimated top speed of 20 knots. At the same time, a VEEM VG145 zero-speed gyroscopic stabiliser system and two 32 kW Northern Lights generators will ensure onboard comfort at all times for owners and guests.
