Van der Valk: Bespoke 33-metre Blue Jeans full of Eastern promise

Van der Valk in the Netherlands has started constructing another fascinating custom project, a 33-metre motoryacht with a wide range of innovative features. Blue Jeans will be one of the first Van der Valk yachts to have a Far East owner as the Dutch yard continues to attract an increasingly global clientele.

As the name perhaps suggests, Blue Jeans will at heart be a casual boat made for kicking back and enjoying long days of relaxation on and in the sea with friends and family. At the same time, the owners are ensuring all their guests have some very sophisticated facilities to enhance their pleasure as designer Guido de Groot and the Van der Valk craftsmen create various bespoke features.

Built for entertainment in every sense of the word, Blue Jeans has a surprisingly sleek exterior profile for a yacht with extra high ceilings in the main deck and a raised bow. The latter reflects the concealment of the anchors within the forepeak to generate space on the foredeck for an additional chill-out zone. A pop-up table will be receded flush into the deck here and, when raised, people can sit with their legs inside the vacated space.

This ingenious solution typifies the level of detailed design and engineering going into the project. Other features which can be revealed at this early stage are a large garage for a Carbon Craft CC130 turbojet tender which will be launched via a hydraulic swim platform. A retractable dive board will be integrated in the flybridge bulwarks and the main deck lounge will have balconies to both port and starboard.Van der Valk: Bespoke 33-metre Blue Jeans full of Eastern promiseVan der Valk: Bespoke 33-metre Blue Jeans full of Eastern promise

With the aft doors also open this set-up will create a tremendous inside-out space as well as offering another way to plunge directly into the sea from the balconies. An extra bathroom with shower is found on this deck for those who are unable to resist a quick dip but don’t want to return to their cabin below to change. 

The lounge is large in its own right, featuring a bar, three seating zones and a dining area forward with a capstan table that will also serve as a games table. This unique table is capable of automatically enlarging its diameter, doubling its seating capacity whilst remaining truly circular in the process. Glass in the bulwark will provide for special views from this area while enhancing the exterior design. An exceptional sound system will further boost the onboard ambience.

Blue Jeans will be powered by two very large engines each delivering 2600 hp and offering a top speed of around 28 knots. To facilitate the voluminous engine room required, the tender will be placed sideways. A beautifully balanced and well-proportioned yacht that conceals many functions and features, Blue Jeans is set to reinforce Van der Valk’s burgeoning reputation for creating medium-sized superyachts to an exceptional degree of customisation and quality. She is due for delivery in the summer of 2022.
