Van Der Valk shipyard in the Netherlands says construction is on schedule for the delivery in May of its largest-ever raised pilothouse yacht, the 105-foot Jangada 2.
The yacht, ordered at the end of 2017, is the fifth in the Van der Valk series.
“Clients can go as large as 40 meters with this model or any other design in our state-of-the-art facilities,” Van der Valk Marketing Manager Yoeri Bijker stated in a press release. “With our new Van der Valk BeachClub range also making waves in the market, the first of which will be launched in spring 2019, our yard is entering an exciting new phase of growth.”
Jangada 2 is being built for a repeat client. Designed in partnership with Nick Top and Guido de Groot, the yacht is expected to carry more crew than previous Van Der Valks. The interior décor is centered on whitewashed European oak.
Features on the flybridge are expected to include a dining area, an aluminum hardtop, and water-toy stowage with a crane. Belowdecks, the master stateroom will be full beam, with three additional guest staterooms.
Power and speed: Jangada 2 is projected to have a top speed of 23 knots, driven by twin 1,920-horsepower MTU 12V 2000 M96L engines. The hull has a Van Oossanen Hull Vane fixed foil for fuel efficiency.
