The client for this bespoke build extended the length to maximize interior space and create something unique in her size. Blending robust and masculine proportions with an abundance of curves, this three-deck superyacht has a self-contained pilothouse and raked bridge windows reminiscent of a commercial vessel. Together with the car-inspired air grills, this first Pilot is a tribute to the skill of Van der Valk’s alumimium shapers and welders.  Large windows and a glass ‘eye’ on the bridge deck are united with partitions and black-painted superstructure surfaces that look like glass. The rest of the livery is in a castle tan and stark white palette chosen by the owner.

A transformer platform and full aft lazarette for a Williams tender and three-person wave runner will boost the watersport fun.  This Van der Valk custom Pilot 34m offers an abundance of outside deck space. The aft deck features a large dining table and circular seating, each easily accommodating ten people.
