Van der Valk unveils to the world the fifth 26-metre model in their Raised Pilothouse line.
Helga’s pastel blue hull is the most visible of a range of specific requests for the exterior, which also included enhancing the flybridge for outdoor activities and adding finishing details such as the transom gate doors and intricate stainless-steel work around the swim platform.
The interior also entirely reflects both the intended use of Helga and the client’s personal preferences. Created as a family superyacht for the owners and their adult children, layout highlights include a large and super-cosy main lounge for everyone to gather in the evenings. The dining area has been placed in the wheelhouse to free up space in the salon, connected by a staircase that is as aesthetically pleasing as it is functionally smart.
All accommodations – one master and three guest suites on the lower deck, two crew cabins on the forward main deck – benefit from a contemporary design with classic friendly details. Our craftsmen really enjoyed their elaborate work with whitewashed oak and walnut.
The Van der Valk engineers had a great time creating Helga, too, with her12-cylinder MTU engines offering a comfortable top speed of 27 knots. The overall result is a fine example of our yard’s high-end capacity anno 2021.
