The latest explorer yacht launched at Van der Valk shipyard is the 23.55-metre Felis, known as “Project Capella”. She is being custom-built for experienced owners who are creating the ultimate home-at-sea for their family. The main deck social area features a large country kitchen and main salon within an open-plan layout. A window above the kitchen connects the flybridge and makes communication between the two areas easy. She will have a contemporary European interior annd can accommodate eight guests and two crew.
Our experienced team is responsible for the construction drawings and for her naval architecture. Lots of attention is being paid to noise and vibration on a self-sufficient yacht with low fuel consumption and a range allowing for lengthy spells away from busy ports. She’ll be powered by heavy-duty 1800 rpm MAN industrial engines with RCD 2 approval. As the owners mostly drive the boat themselves the engine room is easily accessible from the interior. After delivery in the spring of 2023 her home port will be in the Balearics.
