 It’s no secret that at 212 Yachts, we simply adore the VanDutch 40.

From Extrinsic Elegance to Intrinsic Ingenuity-the VanDutch 40 Has It All

The VanDutch 40’s beauty is salient, with her fluid lines and astoundingly clean exterior boasting elegance and perfection. Ingeniously, all exterior fittings are concealed within the deck, ensuring that the aesthetic is immaculately preserved. The result is a timeless design, looking satisfactorily classic while simultaneously achieving a simply unparalleled beauty. Artisan Frank Mulder’s design is truly distinctive, embracing the finesse that defines the French Riviera. The eloquently curved windscreen adds to the uncluttered appearance of the exterior, and the interior expertly maintains the theme of minimalistic design. The cockpit is pleasantly streamlined, and the on-board seating is impeccably appointed to open up the space for entertaining. The VanDutch 40 is an exquisite exemplar of contemporary design coupled with timeless poise, and is a beauty that is sure to be treated with reverence by the hands of time. The VanDutch 40 is an example of mechanical mastery, with Mulder’s expertise meticulously employed to ensure that the performance capabilities of the 40 are every bit as impressive as her extrinsic beauty. With the choice of twin Yanmar or Cummins 480 HP inboard engines, she is electrifyingly quick, reaching top speeds of 40 knots. The choice and placement of the engines results in an advantageous centre of gravity and optimal weight distribution. Bow and stern thrusters coupled with joystick controls make for alarming maneuverability, permitting manageable navigation of bustling Mediterranean ports. The VanDutch 40 is as fun as she is beautiful.

A Superyacht Tender Designed With Your Comfort in Mind

Comfort was at the forefront of Mulder’s mind when designing the VanDutch 40, with scrupulous design decisions made to maximize the quality of the ride on-board. The underwater exhaust results in an extremely quiet ride, and vibration levels are kept to a minimum thanks to VanDutch’s partnership with a noise and vibration abatement company. The large turning radius is a result of efforts to keep the vessel as flat as possible, ensuring that spilled drinks do not inconvenience guests. Seating on-board is made from luscious, Silvertex with quick-drying foam, and the sun-lounger is the ideal place for up to three guests to sprawl in the Mediterranean sun. Below-deck is a surprisingly spacious cabin, featuring a convertible table/double bed allowing it to function as a saloon or cozy cabin. The VanDutch 40 is completed with an array of details included for the comfort of guests, including air conditioning, a bimini, WC, LED floor lighting and iPod docking.

A Jack of All Trades, A Master of All

The VanDutch 40 is a fantastic vessel, and it should be clear now why we hold her in such high regard. As a result of the stunning design and performance capabilities, it is a truly versatile boat. She perfectly fits the needs of superyacht captains who want to wow their guests/owner with the most luxurious superyacht tender available to charter on the Riviera, with her sleek design and attention to comfort ensuring the guests will enjoy a smooth and sumptuous journey to and from their superyacht. The VanDutch 40 also serves as a fantastic day-boat, offering guests the ability to explore the hidden treasures of the Mediterranean in style and tranquility.
