Zeelander Yachts in the Netherlands has delivered Hull No. 1 of its new flagship, the Z72, to an American owner.

Designer Cor D. Rover inked the Z72’s lines, which include an S-shape sheerline, a wider stern than previous models, and more curved surfaces. Owners can choose the yacht’s exterior paint colors, with metallic and diamond-encrusted finishes available.

Noteworthy features include a 110-square-foot swim platform with an optional hot tub aft, as well as a side-entry garage sized for a tender, Seabobs and a WaveRunner (Hull No. 1 carries an 11-foot Williams Turbojet 325; Zeelander says the Z72 can handle a 16-footer). In the salon, there’s a sunroof as well as a retractable window aft for extra natural light and fresh air.

Belowdecks are three staterooms including a master with a king-size berth.

Power is triple 1,000-horsepower Volvo Penta IPS1350s for what Zeelander says is a top speed of 40 knots.

The owner of Hull No. 1 likes to party: He equipped his Z72 with extra lights and what Zeelander calls "the biggest JL sound system." It can play tunes everywhere on board, including at the swim platform.
