Pilot – 34m, the latest custom-series project at Van der Valk shipyard, which has been kept top secret until this July 2023, has been launched. Pilot has an exquisitely detailed exterior profile for a contemporary explorer with strong lines and a bold exterior design by Cor D. Rover and an impressive 295 GT of interior space. The motor yacht has a bronzy-gold hull tone and white superstructure. Exterior highlights include a self-contained pilothouse, raked bridge windows and air grills inspired by the automotive industry. Her naval architecture and technical construction is a collaborations between Ginton NA and our team.

Two large balconies extending the available living space: one on the main deck master suite forward and the other integrated into the hull for a VIP suite positioned on the lower deck. The remaining accommodation comprises two double guest cabins and three crew cabins sleeping a staff of six. The aft platform features two fold-down bulwarks that double the usable area available close to the water. Other exterior spaces include the aft deck where 10 guests can enjoy al fresco dining around a large dining table, while the bridge deck above offers a bar and a barbecue. In terms of performance, the custom yacht Pilot is powered by twin MTU engines which will provide her with a top speed around the 20 knot mark. She is also equipped with CMC stabilisers to allow for smooth cruising.
