Project: Wim Van Der Valk 34M Explorer

Wim Van der Valk has started work on a fantastic custom-designed and built 34-metre Explorer. This all-aluminium tri-deck super yacht has been ordered by repeat clients who’ve returned to the Dutch yard to leverage on the expertise acquired during their previous project and blend that with the rest of their exceptional superyacht building experience. Due for delivery in December 2021, the new project is taking into account every stage of life. The yacht will be completely wheelchair-friendly with a lift for easy access between the decks and all floors being level with no protrusions or steps. High ceilings will enhance a spacious feel generated by giant windows that offer panoramic views and emphasise the family’s love of living close to the water. Impressive accommodations for up to ten guests include a VIP stateroom on the bridge deck, a balcony and an aft terrace. The owner’s stateroom with office is located on the lower deck, which is also home to two double suites in the bow and a single suite. The main deck includes a dining area bathed in natural light and large open saloon. Despite the care paid to the interior, the focal point of the design of the yacht and social life of those onboard will likely be the aft entertainment area. This large open space will have a real wow factor with its clean deck, cool zones for relaxation and dining, bar and swim platform. As you’d expect from a custom build of this sophistication, an enormous amount of work has also gone into the design, engineering and performance. The hull features a wave piercing bow and a performance-enhancing Hull Vane appendage. Twin SeaKeeper gyro stabilisers and a Humphree electric fin stabilising system will combine to provide comfort across the range from zero speed to sailing in rough seas. To ensure these and many other bespoke wishes are met, Van der Valk and the owner’s team from YachtCreators are working in close partnership with Guido de Groot Yacht Design, Ginton Naval Architects, Diana Yacht Design and Hull Vane BV.
