Project: Van Der Valk 25 m Meteor

Van der Valk is delighted to unveil an exciting conceptual design concept that defies convention and sets a new benchmark in the fast super sport yacht market. The 25-metre Meteor platform has its origins in a custom design created to combine inland water adventures with the ability to also head offshore. The Meteor project came together with the experts at Vripack which after many months of intelligent thinking came with this modern design. An exceptional top speed of above 40 knots is available thanks to triple MTU engines with water jet propulsion. Weight is a critical parameter to achieve such a rapid pace and every aspect of efficiency has been meticulously calculated and engineered. At the same time, the Meteor is far more than a super-safe speed machine. Breaking boldly with the norm, the stern is inspired by the sports car world and largely dispenses with the traditional aft deck. The transom itself serves as a swim platform when opened and combines with the interior space to create a large beach club winter garden. Two three-metre sliding roofs offer the option for sun or shade both here and in the bridge area of the foredeck lounge, all part of a radically different deployment of space that is enhanced by liberal use of glass in the superstructure. This fresh approach continues within the interior thanks to an ergonomic layout that embraces flow of movement and is very pleasing to the eye. The main salon includes a dining area and bar, while the lower deck features two full-beam double suites with bathrooms. Each bed is angled to provide superb views out to sea. Vripack has designed a stunning textual mix of satin and gloss finishes with gunmetal black diamond stitched leathers and blue velvet surfaces. The window frames feature an eggshell-white textile and all materials will be sustainably and Dutch sourced.
