Dutch yard Van der Valk is introducing their Pilot Series. We say, series because it will definitely be more than two. They envision the series to start at around 23-meters but they did not say how large the line will go. Pictured below is an example of the 26-meter and how that would look. It showcases design lines by Cor d Rover.
The models will include a large swim-platform that is to be home of the tenders and PWCs carried onboard but when they are launched into the water, there is ample space for guests to enjoy in relaxation of base their waterborne activities from. To launch and recover the tender and toys the process is made easier by an Opacmare transformer system built into the platform.
Space is not bad onboard for an 85-footer. There are three decks guests can utilize; there is a lower and main deck serving as the internal decks, additionally the sundeck and paint protection film rollsexternal decks. The forward sundeck has secondary helm controls with direct access via a slide down to the main helm position. It appears the 85 will have room to sleep guests in a on-deck master, VIP and two twins. The crew will have lodging in two cabins along with their own small mess area.
Expect Van der Valk to release more information about this new Pilot Series in the future. The Pilot series seems to also have taken some design cues from the yard’s Beach Club line too which also share lines by Cor d Rover. Meanwhile, look at the Beach Club 600 for comparison.
