Van der Valk Pilot

Pilot 26M

THE EPITOME OF VERSATILITY

This 26-metre crossover motoryacht combines a rugged explorer-like exterior with the comfort, quality and equipment of a premium contemporary superyacht. Designed by Cor D Rover, it features lots of outdoor space as well as plenty of interior volume.

The Pilot blends a modern overall appearance with subtle classic touches. The raised pilothouse layout means the wheelhouse is elevated and the forward main deck area set free for other purposes. There’s lots of space particularly on the aft deck for sunbathing as well as the storage of tenders, Jet Skis and other toys.

A wide range of adaptations are possible to the highly versatile design. How about extending the saloon aft to expand the socialising space and create a larger dining area? For now, though, let us take a tour of the first Pilot…

General arrangement

BEACH CLUB LIFE

With a 4.90-metre multifunctional swimming platform (including option for an Opacmare Transformer), a crane for a large tender and lots of toys, the main deck is the place to be for guests. Launch the tenders and you have a fully-fledged beach club area with terrace.

A wealth of indoor space includes a well-appointed lounge with floor-to-ceiling windows. The full-beam stateroom forward offers true sea views and total privacy. Stairs lead up to the pilothouse and down to the guest suites, while the crew have a separate stairwell connecting their mess to the galley. The stern area is kept free for owner activities.

COMFORTABLE ACCOMODATIONS

The owners stateroom is situated on the main deck. The guest accommodations consist of two twin cabins with ensuite bathrooms and in addition two spacious VIP suites. Two double crew cabins are located in a distinct area with bathroom, mess and separate stairwell.

ELEVATED VIEWS

An elevated pilothouse provides striking views as well as a comfortable hangout space centred on a U-shaped settee. There is a direct exit from the wheelhouse to the flybridge deck, which comprises an outdoor helm position and co-pilot seat, a large wet bar to port, and a spacious sunbathing zone. The majority of outdoor spaces are covered by a hardtop, and further shade comes from a convertible canvas awning. There is a U-shaped settee amid a dining/lounge area to starboard.
