New Model: Van Den Hoven 1500 Executive Mk.2

Van Den Hoven new Executive 1500 Mk.2 retains all the qualities of the replacing 1500 and combines them with an exterior design inspired by the new Executive 1850. The changes in the hull design include the stepped bulwark, resulting in a lower hull and a more elegant and sporty silhouette. The swimming platform and access to the engine room aft have become also more accessible. In addition the stern features horizontal and vertical curves as part of the fresher design approach.  The most eye-catching element is the entirely new superstructure, which includes stepped sides of the wheelhouse roof to create extra curves, an extended aft roof to ensure it is easily closed off with an awning to provide more privacy and protection from the sun.  The Van Den Hoven 1500 Mk.2 will be fully equipped with marine glazing for a more modern and high-quality look, the flush deck creating a wider front of the cabin, making room for a large sofa on the fore-deck.  As Van den Hoven builds its yachts in steel they are able to offer a wide variety of adjustments, with a flybridge model of the Executive 1500 Mk2 also being an available option.  Following hull one launched in Summer 2017, three hulls have already been sold of the Executive 1500 Mk.2 with the third being delivered in Spring 2018.
