Over the past 20 years, Van den Hoven Jachtbouw has delivered a total of 45 motoryachts. All the experience gained in building this fleet was incorporated into the Executive 1850 from the design stage, ensuring an optimal balance between maximum space and elegant aesthetics. The yacht can go for long trips in continental Europe and tours to the British Isles.
Experienced yacht Owners have increasingly specific demands for their sailing comfort, especially when it comes to longer stays on board. Van den Hoven Jachtbouw focuses on building its yachts as flexibly as possible in order to meet individual client requirements.
The yacht is available with or without flybridge. Combined with a small outside galley, refrigerator, comfortable sofas and an extra steering position, this creates a fabulous ‘rooftop terrace’ for al fresco dining. The optional and stylish bimini ensures plenty of protection from the sun too.
The interior of the yacht can also be aligned with the Owner’s wishes, offering a wide selection of woods, colours, materials and furnishings as well as layout-related options such as more bathrooms or fewer cabins.
With the engine room situated aft, there is room for three luxury cabins, two large bathrooms with toilets plus a separate day head, a spacious living room and a modern galley. The yacht is equipped with twin Volvo Penta, D300 hp engines and its CE A certification makes her ideal for more open waters.
As key factors in terms of sailing comfort, vibration, noise and roll were major focal points in designing the Executive 1850. The yacht comes as standard with stabilisers, while the underwater segment provides a high initial stability.
To reduce noise, the entire engine room is finished with high-quality engine room insulation and white aluminium perforated panels. Vibration is eliminated as much as possible via the heavy hull and the transmission from the engines to the axles, which also includes a homokinetic coupling.
The cap rail, decorative grilles and anchor locker are made of fine stainless steel with great welding work. The spacious and elegant motoryacht is easy to sail: partly due to the bowthruster and its manoeuvrability and the deck layout makes her easy to move and walk around.
The spacious and well-thought-through Executive 1850 is a highly impressive addition to the 17.50 to 20-metre segment, made all the more attractive by a competitive starting price.
