The 23m Flybridge Valencia and 26m Raised Pilothouse Forum have joined a spate of achievements in Van der Valk’s 50th jubilee year. Another recent launch is the Anemeli.
With an exterior designed in-house at Van der Valk, Valencia is an exemplar of the yard’s new Flybridge line (formerly known as Continental Two).
“She has been created for a highly involved owner who specifically requested several elements,” explained Van der Valk’s marketing manager Yoeri Bijker.
“These included giving the superstructure a modern, curved shape. As with all such bespoke creations, the success of such a design is clearly seen in the fine details. The owner is very pleased with the outcome and so are we as a yard.”
Forum’s exterior is crafted from the boards of Guido de Groot Design, while its interior was drawn by the owner’s in-house interior architect.
Its main deck aft has a large outdoor dining table and a hydraulic platform for the tender. The saloon comprises a large conference room for business meetings.
