About this Van Der Valk Explorer



A great opportunity to have a new custom Dutch built motor yacht delivered in JULY 2017. The Van der Valk 25M Explorer displacement motoryacht is currently under construction and is being built to MCA standards. Equipped with C12 Caterpillar engines, and 4000 gallons of fuel she will have tremendous range of 2400 NM range at 10 knots.

This 82' Van der Valk explorer  has a tremendous amount of volume afforded by a beam of over 22'. She has a four stateroom layout plus crew for three. She is currently being built with a combination of Mahogany, bleached Ash and Wenge floors. 

The quality of the Van der Valk is not found on a yacht built outside the Netherlands, and is hard to compare with much else in this size and price range. Every aspect of the design is well thought out and executed, she is a very special yacht built to cruise the world.
