Project: Wim Van Der Valk 26M Pilot

Wim Van der Valk shipyard announces the addition of a new concept to its existing line of premium Dutch motoryachts. The Pilot range combines the rugged exterior evocative of an explorer vessel with the superlative comfort, quality and equipment of the very latest contemporary yachts. Designed by Cor D Rover this 26-metre crossover yacht combines a rugged explorer-like exterior with the comfort, quality and equipment of a premium contemporary super yacht, with lots of outdoor space as well as plenty of interior volume.  Interior design has been awarded to Italian firm Hot Lab which created two style revolving around turquoise and yellow colours.  The 26M 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. The 26M Pilot feature two accommodation plan choices of four or five guest cabins, both with owners suite forward on the main deck, and this depending on whether you want a crew lobby or just cabins.  On the main deck is also two options which revolves a more traditional layout with central dinning table for eight, and a more social version with bar style galley.   The Wim Van Der Valk will be powered by triple Volvo 800hp engines with IPS pod drives which will give her top speeds up to 21 knots and a cruise of 17 knots.  A smaller 23 meter unit is also on plan, and this might be another range for the ever expanding custom Van Der Valk.
