Van der Valk will be joining the other big names in leisure sailing to launch the show season at Cannes. It will be exhibiting at Booth SYE 224 and/or Yachts SYE 039.
There is always a red-carpet atmosphere at the Cannes boat show as hundreds of the best yachts in the small to medium-sized range are presented to the expectant crowds in this iconic location. The in-water spaces are occupied by the jewels of the seas, and Van der Valk expects its two new motoryachts to cause quite a stir.
The Festival will be the first chance for the boat-buying public to see the revolutionary BeachClub concept ‘in the flesh’. The BeachClub 660 Flybridge will showcase the unique patented solution for placing the engine room under the swim platform, offering indoor and outdoor space of a kind normally only seen on larger boats. Show visitors will also be able to see the eye-catching interior and exterior design by Cor D. Rover and first-class naval architecture by Ginton Naval Architects.

The innovative Jangada 2 is also set to be a star of the Cannes show. Built for a repeat client, she is the fifth and largest yacht to date in Van der Valk's Raised Pilothouse custom-series. The close cooperation between the Van der Valk team and designers Nick Top and Guido de Groot has resulted in various ingenious layout features requested by the owners. The Cannes crowds will be impressed by Jangada 2’s minimalistic whitewashed European oak interior.
