At 33.74m, Van der Valk’s latest custom superyacht Blue Jeans, is certainly a striking one. Claimed by the shipyard to have been the most complex superyacht created to date by its artisans, the raised pilothouse yacht has been finished incredibly.
Designed both inside and out by Guido de Groot Design, alongside naval architecture by Diana Yacht Design, the bespoke vessel also benefited from the expertise of her experienced owners, all playing a part in creating a yacht that combines a timeless design with a relaxing yachting experience.
‘Building a bespoke boat for clients who know exactly what they desire is a pleasure and a privilege,’ commented the shipyard, ‘and exactly the kind of challenge we love to take on.’
With high ceilings to create a sense of expansive interior volume, alongside a unique use of glass throughout, the custom superyacht offers eight guests the chance to relax onboard. Across a dedicated owner’s suite, two VIP suites and a twin cabin, guests can retreat after a day at sea on Blue Jeans’ tailor-made Carbon Craft CC130 turbojet tender.
Featuring a further array of innovative additions including dive-board balconies in the main deck lounge, glass bulwarks for unrestricted views, and a generous tender garage, the shipyard guarantees that, ‘every inch of space has been optimised’.
Another notable feature of Blue Jeans' harmonious design is the recessed ‘chill-out zone’ at the forepeak which offers an additional area for lounging under the sun. With her finished interior yet to be revealed, mock renderings highlight her numerous comfortable social spaces and opportunities for al fresco dining.
Boasting an impressive top speed of 28 knots and cruising speed of 22.4 knots, we are looking forward to seeing Blue Jeans take to the water very soon for her first set of sea trials.
