Van der Valk's 34m BLUE JEANS Spotted in London

By Heather Collier

The 33.74-metre motor yacht 'Blue Jeans', has been spotted on her maiden voyage from the shipyard in the Netherlands to London.

Van der Valk's stunning blue vessel sports a unique, blue metallic hull. Blue Jeans was carefully designed with socialising and entertainment in mind by Guido de Groot Design, while Diana Yacht Design penned her naval architecture.

Key highlights of her exterior include her sleek profile with sharp styling elements, all closely aligned with a desire for high ceilings.

Blue Jeans' anchors are hidden within an imposing raised bow, an arrangement which frees up space on the foredeck for an extra chill-out zone. A pop-up table will be receded flush into the deck and, when raised, guests can sit with their legs inside the vacated space.

With grand ceilings almost 2.5m in height and panoramic glass for enhanced views, her interior spaces provide guests with a calming atmosphere and scenery, combined with Northern European and Asian inspired decor.

Eye-catching palettes of metals and woods, such as liquid metal and copper walls and teak slats for the walls and ceilings offer a timeless feel that will never age. Everything is of the highest quality possible, including a fine selection of natural stones, marble and semi-precious stones.

Her spacious lounge features a bar, three seating zones and a forward dining area with a capstan table that can double as a games table. There will be a sophisticated master on the lower deck plus a VIP suite and two guest cabins. The tender will be placed sideways in her own large garage, creating the room for an expansive engine room.

Powered by twin 2,600 horsepower MTU engines, she boasts an impressive top speed of 28 knots and cruising speed of 22.4 knots.
