The launch of the Van der Valk BeachClub yacht marks a new direction for the yard that they describe as a “radical shift in spatial thinking that will benefit the next generation of motoryacht owners”. The 19-metre BeachClub 600 will now embark on sea trials before being presented to the public at the major boat shows in the months ahead.
Visitors to Van der Valk’s recent open house event noted at the amount of space that the BeachClub 600 offers for leisure purposes both inside and out.
Van der Valk has placed the engine room within the swimming platform area. This ingenious solution was developed in partnership with Ginton Naval Architects and designer Cor D. Rover.
The design offers an unprecedented amount of room on the lower deck, with three outdoor zones: the 14 square-metre beach deck with sun lounge, a 17 square-metre cockpit deck with outside steering and the enormous 25 square-metre foredeck.
Ample space is retained for indoor luxury: an upper salon with helm and panoramic views, a lower deck lounge with galley & dinette (linked to the beach club via stunning glass doors), and three suites, including a master with phenomenal all-round views.
Glass inserts in the hull add further class to the yacht’s elegant exterior. The BeachClub 600 features twin Volvo Penta IPS-950 engines, giving a top speed of 25 knots.
