Jangada Yacht by Wim van der Valk

Jangada by Wim van der Valk

Wim van der Valk launched the new 25m all-aluminum Jangada - a very stunning yacht and my personal favorite in that size of motor yachts.

Jangada belongs to the new Continental Three series of Wim van der Valk and is the second unit. The exterior was designed by Guido de Groot who designed also the interior in cooperation with Belgian designer Nick Top appointed by the experienced owner.

Guido de Groot and Nick Top chose whitewashed English oak as a base for the interior design. They designed an open and light living space with great details like LED lights.

The owner resided in a full beam master suite with two walk-in wardrobes on the lower deck. There are also two guest cabins and a VIP suite. All cabins are equipped with ensuite bathrooms.

The crew quarter with two cabins, bathroom, crew mess and the galley is forward located on the main deck.

The aft deck is a shady spot for dining thanks to the extended flybridge, separated by wide glass sliding doors from the salon.

The flybridge has space for a 4.5m jet tender and a jet ski which can be lowered with a 600 kg crane. It features also a u-shaped dining area, wet bar with grill, sink, fridge, and ice-maker. A sunbathing area is in front of the wheelhouse.

Jangada is powered by three Volvo Penta diesel engines of the D13-900-series. Each one has 900 HP. This trio pushes her up to 23 knots. In addition to the Volvo Penta diesel engines, the yacht is equipped with the IPS pod-drive system to control her easily and safely with a joystick. Wim van der Valk offers the Continental Three range also with a conventional shaft propulsion.

My personal experience with Wim van der Valk: I visited the half-sister ship “The next episode“. The yard upholstered the blades of the shutter with fine leather. Awesome craftsmanship in every detail! But this is only one thing to highlight. They do a great work!

The Continental III 26.00 Raised Pilothouse is one of the most exciting, elegant and progressive super yacht designs the Van der Valk shipyard has revealed until now. Guido de Groot Design is responsible for both the yacht’s exterior and interior design.

Her remarkable main deck area accommodates both the salon and dining area together with a spacious closable galley. Several fine materials, like Moore & Giles™ leathers, solid Santos Mahogany floorings, white washed vertical grain oak walls and interior objects and Ultraleather™ ceilings, go beautifully synchronized and show a clear modern and sophisticated style. A professional Fohnn Audio™ sound system transforms both the saloon and the flybridge area to an exclusive private nightclub. The master stateroom is situated on the main deck in the front part of the yacht. The en suite bathroom with Bizazza™ Mosaics and Durat™ worktops perfectly fit with the style of the master stateroom.

Both the saloon/dining area and the owner’s residence are separated by a half-raised pilothouse.

The main stairway grants access to the lower accommodation deck. The 4 guest cabins and their own individual bathrooms all enjoy contemporary fittings and stylish décors with beautifully designed details. The layout of the guest rooms is perfectly balanced by the symmetric layout.

The front part of the accommodation deck is specially designed for the accommodation of a three-man crew. The 2-cabin crew area offering fixed 3 berths and a spacious crew-mess with a kitchen and laundry area.

The enlarged flybridge deck offers an outside helm position accompanied by a wet bar on port side and opposite a large L-shaped sofa which serves as both lounge and outside dining area. The rear section of the flybridge has been reserved for the 3 PWC’s (2 wave runners and 1 jet ski).

Her advanced lightweight aluminum semi-displacement hull in combination with the revolutionary Volvo Penta IPS drive technology (triple Volvo Penta IPS-1200 D13-900, 6 cylinder engine) supplies extremely accurate steering behavior and easy maneuverability. Moreover, at any speed, noise levels remain exceptionally low thanks to the underwater exhausts and shaft alignment elimination.
