Van der Valk unique approach to building top-quality yachts:
Van der Valk is a true gem of the yachting world, a Dutch pedigree builder of luxury motor yachts in aluminium and steel. Every Van der Valk is unique and offers a client an unprecedented level of customisation. Working with Van der Valk shipyard is the client’s dream. Excellent and fast communication with all the construction team and management makes the whole process fast, smooth and effortless. Van der Valk builds just a handful of boats every year so that the builder listens to what every client wants. Besides the quality, which is outstanding and exceeds all the industry standards, every Van der Valk boat is delivered on time and within the original budget.
Wim Van der Valk founded the shipyard under his name in 1967 and for more than 50 consecutive years, acquired a worldwide reputation as a builder of high-quality custom yachts.
In the late 1990s, Van der Valk introduced the famous Continental One series, followed by Continental Two and Continental Three model lines. Dutch yacht designer Guido de Groot draw the exteriors of many yachts in the Continental series, which allowed Van der Valk to enter the super yacht territory.
The Van der Valk yacht portfolio includes Flybridge, Raised Pilot House, Explorer and Beach Club series. While designing pleasure yachts, the builder collaborates with other famous names in the Netherlands: Vripack, Cor D. Rover and Jaron Ginton Naval Architect.
The largest Van der Valk yacht built is 36.8m Explorer yacht Wim van der Valk Explorer 37m Santa Maria T launched in 2013.
Van der Valk builds hulls of the yachts and outfits them in-house what permits the strictest quality control and satisfied owners. Van der Valk’s facilities are in Waalwijk, in the southern part of the Netherlands, just an hour drive from Amsterdam. Five state-of-the-art production halls are used for welding, assembly, electrical systems, piping and furniture installation. With the recent acquisition of a new construction hall, Van der Valk now can build a yacht of up to 40 m.
The Dutch builder implements the most innovative approach to a yacht with cutting edge technological solutions. Van der Valk was one of the first luxury yacht producers to build a vessel with a fast-displacement hull. Also, Van der Valk was the first to install two-axis fin anti-roll stabilisers.
