Projects: Van Der Valk 34m Project 111.11, Van Der Valk 35m Project Samba

Van der Valk has started construction on two new 34 and 35 meter projects both based on Van der Valk's 34.00m Explorer hull WV0127 platform, also known as Lady Lene.  The first if these project take a modern approach idea from knowledgeable owners who’ve enjoyed decades on the water, and for project 111.1 join forces with the creative talents of exterior designer Guido de Groot and interior designer Carla Guilhem from a full custom super yacht which takes the proven hull Van der Valk 34 meter Explorer platform.  The powerful Project 111.11, will be a full-displacement 34-metre superyacht with twin Volvo Penta 750hp continuous duty engines and a top speed up to fourteen knots. Each of the four decks on Van der Valk 111.11 has been designed to meet specific needs on a yacht with a fold-out platform aft and a lazarette for jet-skis that will be a superb relaxation area in its own right. In fact, everything about Project 111.11 revolves around entertaining large groups of people in style on a compact boat with lots of volume.
The second project by Van der Valk titled Samba is also based on the 34m Explorer hull, although she will be that one meter longer in length, thanks to its extended bathing platform.  Van der Valk 35m Project Samba is again a build for experienced hands-on owners, with again Guido de Groot taking design duties, with everything from the waterline up on this delightful all-aluminium tri-deck superyacht being custom guided. A rich focus on outdoor leisure spaces, including a large swimming platform, is incorporated within an elegant explorer-like look. Safety is at a premium in this multi-generation family yacht with high bulwarks on the side decks, and smart colour separations instead of open railings. The rhythmic lines, complex surfaces and sculptural elements will be as relaxing to the eye as the lifestyle onboard.  Van der Valk project Samba will have naval architecture by Diana and Jinto and is to be powered by Man 1450hp engines with an estimated top speeds up to seventeen knots.
