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.
Van der Valk is delighted to unveil an exciting conceptual design concept that defies convention and sets a new benchmark in the fast weekender market. The 25 metre Meteor platform has its origins in a custom design created to combine inland water adventures with the ability to also head offshore. This client was introduced by the experienced brokers at Boutique Yachts who have long recognised Van der Valk’s unrivalled ability to meet bespoke demands in aluminium in the 20 to 35 metre range. The lessons learned over a considerable period developing the Meteor project together with the experts at Vripack are now able to be shared with a wider audience.
The Meteor platform offers its owner the opportunity to benefit from many months of intelligent thinking. An exceptional top speed of above 40 knots is available thanks to a powerful blend of triple Rolls Royce MTUs with water jets. Weight is a critical parameter to achieve such a rapid pace and every aspect of efficiency has been meticulously calculated and engineered.
At the same time, the Meteor is far more than a robust speed machine. Breaking boldly with the norm, the stern is inspired by the sports car world and largely dispenses with the traditional aft deck. The transom itself serves as a swim platform when opened and combines with the interior space to create a large beach club or winter garden.
Two three metre sliding roofs offer the option for sun or shade both here and in the bridge area of the foredeck lounge, all part of a radically different deployment of space that is enhanced by the liberal use of glass in the superstructure.
This fresh approach continues within the interior thanks to an ergonomic layout that embraces flow of movement and is inherently pleasing to the eye. The main salon includes a dining area and bar, while the lower deck features two full beam double suites with bathrooms. Each bed is angled to provide superb views out to sea. Vripack has designed a stunning textual mix of satin and gloss finishes with gunmetal black diamond stitched leathers and blue velvet surfaces. The window frames feature an eggshell white textile and all materials will be sustainably and locally sourced. The skilled craftsmen at Van der Valk look forward to bringing this brand new, groundbreaking yacht to life with exquisite options selected for its proud owner.
