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.”
