Zeelander Yacht’s latest Z72 has many new exciting features compared to the hull number one delivered last year.

“The array of custom updates the client requested make this a very different Z72,” commented Sietse Koopmans, Founder and Chairman of Zeelander Yachts. “These exciting new features belong to superyacht class. The quality, attention to detail, feeling of space and seagoing qualities are nothing short of excellent.”

The new Z72 received several updates and options, and is equipped with a forward-looking sonar, an underwater camera and camera system in the front and aft.

The aft and side windows on the main deck have privacy glass and can be tinted with a simple click on a button.

From the outside, she keeps this timeless with a wide stern and curvy exterior lines developed in collaboration with Cor D. Rover.

The yacht has three suits on the lower deck, a spacious main deck saloon with huge windows and panoramic views, and a pair of alfresco social areas. A 10-square-metre beach club is another strong highlight of this model.


“The client had some special requests,” explained Sietse Koopmans. “The main deck bar with a pair of bar stools, adjacent to the interior galley, is shortened. We designed an L-shaped sofa instead of the other two stools to the left like the other Z72 had.”

Four rod holders are installed in the stern between side boarding and swim platform. There are extra chargers and brackets for jet surf boards in the tender garage. Other extras include a diving plank on the bow, while the Z72 tender garage is large enough to carry a 3.5-metre Williams tender.

The 20-metre flagship yacht is powered by three 1,000-hp fuel efficient Volvo IPS 1350 engines.

The Z72 reaches 40 knots and benefits from the Volvo Penta integrated joystick system for excellent manoeuvrability.

It promises to be a comfortable yacht, with advanced soundproofing and vibration control. The layout is sophisticated as all areas are seamlessly connected and placed on the same level.

The model is also available with a gyro stabilisation system for optimal comfort.
