ADVERTISEMENT

Dutch shipyard Van der Valk has sold a third yacht in its Explorer line to a repeat client.

Designed by Guido de Groot, the Explorer is a long-range motor yacht with a round-bilged hull and large fuel capacity, built to withstand tough environments and long ocean passages. Following on from the 82-foot (25m) Dutch Falcon and the 121-foot (37m) Santa Maria T, the third yacht in the Explorer range will be a 92-foot (28m) aluminum boat with a raised pilothouse and fast displacement hull.

Twin Man V12 1650 hp engines will give an estimated top speed of 20 knots, as well as a VEEM VG145 zero-speed gyroscopic stabilizer system and two 32 kW Northern Lights generators, according to a company news release.

Van der Valk is a family-owned shipyard in Waalwijk, Netherlands.
