Largest Raised Pilothouse model to date in successful custom-series

Van der Valk Shipyard in the Netherlands is making excellent progress with the construction of a 32-metre Raised Pilothouse motoryacht, the order for which was placed at the end of 2017. The first details can now be released on Jangada 2, which is being built for an experienced repeat client. Designed in partnership with Nick Top and Guido de Groot, this innovative yacht has a wide range of bespoke elements to match the owner’s very specific brief.

Scheduled for delivery in May 2019, Jangada 2 is the fifth distinctive superyacht in Van der Valk’s successful custom-series line and, as the largest to date, raises the bar even higher. The four previous models were the 27.21-metre The Next Episode (2014), the 24.99-metre Jangada (2015), the 26-metre Forum (2017) and the 26-metre Nicostasia (2018).

“The different lengths of these all-aluminium beauties reflect the wide degree of choice which our Raised Pilothouse design offers owners,” says Van der Valk marketing manager Yoeri Bijker.  “This is enhanced by the fact that the yachts are built entirely in-house to the highest Dutch standards. Clients can go as large as 40 metres with this model or any other design in our state-of-the-art facilities. 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.”

Owner driven

Another reason for the confidence of the Van der Valk team in the future is the significant number of clients returning to the yard for a new build after enjoying their time on a previous yacht. As one of the designers of Jangada 2, Guido de Groot has been closely involved in this project from the outset.

“It was a real pleasure to work with such an experienced owner and create a very functional GA that meets his specific requirement. The yacht will carry more crew than their previous boats so together with the captain we paid significant attention to these accommodations. Lots of work also went into the spacious galley as we optimised the functional area under the raised pilothouse.

Bespoke choices

Other examples of specific requests on Jangada 2 include a minimalistic interior style based principally on whitewashed European oak. The flybridge deck will have an outdoor dining area, a sunbathing space with plenty of loose sunbeds and an all-aluminium hardtop providing ample shade, as well as a smart wet bar. There will be abundant space for the storage of a tender and/or toys, including a crane with a lifting capacity of 800 kilograms. This deck will also feature a handy outdoor helm station.

Comfort assured 

The lower deck will house a selection of comfortable accommodations for all who sail on Jangada 2. The full-beam master suite features a separate bathroom & head, large wardrobes and an office desk to port flanked by a sofa starboard side. A second well-proportioned double suite is found on the port side. There are two more cabins on this deck designed with children in mind, sleeping up to five kids in two sets of bunk beds and a single berth.

Strong and stable

The hull of Jangada 2 is fitted with a Van Oossanen Hull Vane fixed foil for enhanced fuel efficiency along with a bulbous bow. A VEEM 145 zero-speed gyroscopic stabiliser will make sure she is comfortably steady even in choppy seas. The yacht’s propulsion package comprises twin MTU 12V2000 M96L engines with a capacity of 1432 kW at 2450 rpm, as well as twin 32-kilowatt generators. Her maximum speed will be some 23 knots, while she will cruise at a brisk 18 knots. Jangada 2 is being constructed under RINA:C✠HULL, MACH ; Y class for unrestricted navigation under pleasure yacht registration, and will receive an additional RINA comfort class certificate.
