Building on Van der Valk’s long experience in building explorer yachts, the shipyard is pleased to share these first images of a brand-new concept for a 30-metre version. Combining an adventurous, rugged ambience with graceful lines and shapes, this stylish Explorer also features a wealth of interior space. With her fast displacement hull, this is a boat designed to travel at speed.
While functionality usually takes priority over sleek looks on most explorer-type motoryachts, designer Guido de Groot has ensured a luxury feel is also present. She has the facilities of a superyacht, with the impressive beach club, hydraulic transom platform, full-beam master suite forward, four guest cabins and plenty of space for crew. Styling-wise, this is still clearly an Explorer yacht with negative windows in the wheelhouse now, while the angled bow adds length and elegance. Another design element is the way the window graphics have been smoothly integrated within dark glass surfaces.
As you would expect from a boat designed for taking the whole family – or groups of close friends – on long adventures at sea, there is a considerable amount of interior volume available, including exceptionally high ceilings. The raised pilothouse design is very inviting inside and out, while a safe journey is assured in all weather conditions.
