Project: Van Den Hoven 1700 Executive Mk.II

Fairly soon after the introduction of the new Executive 1500 Mk.II and 1850, Dutch builder Van Den Hoven started seeing demand from the market to fill the gap between the two new models. This was how the new Executive 1700 Mk.II project, currently under construction in Waspik started to take shape.  The new 1700 Executive Mk.II design follows the modern and international design language established by the 1850 and 1500 Mk.II, but with its own clear identity. Examples include a redesign of the side windows and a fresh take on the hull. New design methods have also made it possible to combine higher speeds with a lower fuel consumption.  As Van den Hoven interiors are well-known for their intelligent layout and spaciousness, with a great deal of attention to this aspect for on board comfort. The galley, wheelhouse, lounge and dining space flow naturally into each other, adding to both the cosines and convenience. For instance, guests can enjoy a drink on the aft deck, the modern galley invites top-notch cooking, and there is plenty of space around the helm for people to gather and socialize.  The standard version of the  Van Den Hoven 1700 Executive Mk.II is equipped with twin Volvo 225hp diesel engines with line shaft propulsion.
