Van der Valk Custom


Next-level vision

The 35-metre Jangada is the third custom build at Van der Valk for the same client and showcases how our yard has the flexibility, capacity and willingness to fully meet evolving requirements and lifestyle changes. Designed by Nick Top and Guido de Groot, the new Jangada provides even more space and comfort than her predecessors, the second of which was nominated for a World Superyacht Award in 2020. High customisation levels include facilitating the owner’s wish to take his morning swim in a 4.5-metre jet-stream pool on the flybridge deck with a 6,000-litre capacity. This required installing a warm-water tank below the tender garage, another testimony to engineering excellence as well as design and layout vision.

Superb views

The exterior design of the third Jangada retains the elegant raised pilothouse looks of the previous two while adding an extra deck. The resulting volume is blended in by an intricate use of graphic lines and a muscular yet timeless aesthetic. Giant slabs of glass in the main saloon and 2.6-metre-high ceilings generate a wonderfully spacious ambience and well as superb views. There are also unhindered vistas from the wheelhouse lounge when at anchor as the dashboard screens can be neatly folded away.

Take a seat

Another striking bespoke feature on this new Jangada is a bow seat that will be precisely positioned to provide a perfect panorama of the sunset in the owner’s home bay on the French Riviera. The portside passarelle has also been specifically adapted to the pontoon height in that marina, while wide stairs and walkways on the yacht further enhance comfort. Twin Seakeeper gyros and fin stabilisers will enhance performance at sea while a six-metre Williams tender offers comfortable journeys ashore, launched from a dedicated garage with side doors.

Privacy and peace

An exquisitely detailed interior style based upon 4/10th whitewashed wood and architectural functionality has been designed to match the way the family spends time onboard. Impressive accommodations include a full-beam master on the main deck foredeck and lower deck cabins tailored to the owner’s children and grandchildren. There’s even a gym for when the weather stops a morning swim. A final highlight is the exceptional degree of privacy, with crew zones and circulation kept separate from owner/guest areas. Everything will be well-insulated to keep noise dissemination to a minimum.
