A passionate yachtsman and water sport enthusiast, Wim van der Valk founded the company that bears his name in 1967 and remains the driving force behind it today. Since its inception, Van der Valk has built a rich heritage in both steel and aluminium motor yachts. The success of the first cabin and aft-cabin design cruisers measuring from seven to ten metres quickly attracted widespread acclaim from the yachting public.
Today, Van der Valk’s production facilities in Waalwijk (NL) produce only a select number of bespoke yachts every year. This ensures unrivalled quality and exclusivity for individual owners. Each and every yacht benefits from the strictest quality control and a first-rate construction process. Only after intensive sea trials and quality control procedures can boats leave the yard for delivery to their new owners.
Van der Valk owes its ongoing success over the decades to an unwavering dedication to key values such as reliability, cooperation and a forward-thinking approach. As a family-run company with a pedigree that spans generations, Van der Valk understands the value of keeping one’s word and creating yachts that stand the test of time. They abide by agreements made with customers, suppliers and staff; building yachts which function equally as well as they look. Partners and buyers are considered as family members – and this is reflected in excellent relationships and many repeat clients.
Together with Guido de Groot, the shipyard developed different design options for an expedition yacht, from classic and traditional to modern and futuristic. Whichever you choose you are assured of a yacht with huge outside decks, lots of space for tenders and toys, and the option to carry a helicopter.
These models are created to endure the toughest weather conditions, and are specifically designed with a significant fuel capacity, enabling them to make transatlantic passages.
They feature a triple-deck configuration that offers serious interior and exterior space, and provides many different layout possibilities. The aft deck is dedicated to two large tender boats, the storage of water toys, a helicopter deck or a swimming pool.
The design can generally be said to have a distinctly powerful character. Sporting a round-bilge hull, Expedition yachts are mainly built in full displacement versions with a steel hull and aluminium superstructure. Highly suited for incorporating electric and hybrid solutions should you wish, you can also opt for an aluminium fast displacement version.
A full range of options are available. This includes a variety of mechanical, plumbing and electrical options, helm, navigation and electronics alternatives, and a comprehensive range of finish materials, textures and colours.
