A passionate yachtsman and water sport enthusiast, Wim van der Valk founded the company that bears his name in 1967 and remains the driving force behind it today. Since its inception, Van der Valk has built a rich heritage in both steel and aluminium motor yachts. The success of the first cabin and aft-cabin design cruisers measuring from seven to ten metres quickly attracted widespread acclaim from the yachting public.
Today, Van der Valk’s production facilities in Waalwijk (NL) produce only a select number of bespoke yachts every year. This ensures unrivalled quality and exclusivity for individual owners. Each and every yacht benefits from the strictest quality control and a first-rate construction process. Only after intensive sea trials and quality control procedures can boats leave the yard for delivery to their new owners.
Van der Valk owes its ongoing success over the decades to an unwavering dedication to key values such as reliability, cooperation and a forward-thinking approach. As a family-run company with a pedigree that spans generations, Van der Valk understands the value of keeping one’s word and creating yachts that stand the test of time. They abide by agreements made with customers, suppliers and staff; building yachts which function equally as well as they look. Partners and buyers are considered as family members – and this is reflected in excellent relationships and many repeat clients.
An exciting opportunity to obtain this pre-owned 27m Raised Pilothouse, available now, with tastefully designed modern interiors and ready to launch.
This 27m Raised Pilothouse has a highly sophisticated look, combining an overall contemporary appearance with subtle classic touches. A truly elegant yacht with all of the hallmarks of quality associated with Van der Valk. Once again, Van der Valk cooperated with Guido de Groot Design to create this series. This layout means that the wheelhouse position is elevated and the forward main deck area freed for comfort and hotel functions.
Her main deck features an alfresco dining area next to the main salon. She also has a professional galley which can be opened or closed to view as required. The master stateroom is situated on the main deck forward of the raised pilothouse. The lower deck accommodates up to eight guests in two VIP suites and two guest cabins. This yacht also has accommodation for up to three crew members.
One of the salient features of this yacht is its extraordinary integrated Fohnn sound system. The main salon is equipped with six surround sound speakers and two subwoofers with colossal output capacities (600 watts for the former and 800 for the latter), allowing for an incredibly rich sound. The acoustic requirements were integrated into the interior design at an early phase. The stainless steel CNC-cut grille and custom finish for the two subwoofers fit the interior design perfectly.
Powered by three Volvo Penta (IPS-1200) 900 hp diesel engines, the yacht is capable of a top speed of 25 knots. A 11,500 litre diesel fuel tank and 2,000 litre freshwater tank ensure this 27m Raised Pilothouse has a serious cruising range.
