Zeelander Z55

Zeelander presents the new Z55 Luxury Yacht

The Zeelander Z55 is a 30 % larger model of the Z44 to offer more space for the owner.

The extended deck area includes a fully equipped wet bar with 4 bar stools with the seating area behind the wheelhouse comfortably accommodating eight people. Further aft is the spacious relaxation area that can be converted into a sumptuous full outdoor dining or sunbathing area. The increase in deck space also provides two side doors towards the aft of the yacht giving guests’ easy access and exit when mooring at the quayside.

Z55 is built for fun and with Zeelander’s famous ride quality it is perfect for days out cutting through the sparkling blue waters with family and friends. The Volvo 900hp engines provide an exhilarating top speed of 34 knots, with a cruising speed of 28 knots to cut through the waves with pure elegance.

The ease of operation is still a major factor in the design and development of this larger model meaning the avid yachtsman can still enjoy the Zeelander in a very personal way. The new bridge contains the revolutionary Volvo Penta Glass Cockpit System, together with the Volvo IPS Dynamic Positioning System. This gives the helmsman a greatly enhanced overview and control of both navigation and engines in one place.

The helm enjoys a full 360° view giving the guests a wonderful panoramic vista from the wheelhouse. With the use of innovative design, the aft wall in the wheelhouse can be seamlessly moved down behind the bar and with the sunroof opening the deck area becomes a wonderful outdoor entertainment and relaxation area.

Below decks, the Z55 offers 3 staterooms – a full beam master bedroom that is amidships and includes a private bathroom. The luxury VIP bedroom to the bow offers a private bathroom, plus a guest stateroom with bunk beds will share the day head. The clever use of space, which is present on all Zeelander yachts, excels on the Z55. A tender garage houses the Williams tender to the side of the yacht and adds to the independent operation of this unique yacht with the additional benefit of a swim platform providing guests with easy access to the tender and the water.

Innovative Technology

As with all Zeelander yachts, cutting-edge technology is present throughout the Z55. Together with Zeelander’s pioneering noise and vibration control expertise, the Z55 also offers the Seakeeper Active Gyro Stabilizer system to virtually eliminate zero and low-speed roll. The Z55 truly offers a unique and unrivaled yachting experience.

Zeelander Z164 Superyacht

Zeelander Z164 - 50m Luxury Explorer Yacht

Zeelander Z164 - a concept for a 50m luxury explorer yacht with running costs of a 30m yacht.

The pioneering yacht is entirely designed to provide low cost of ownership, reduced fuel, and energy consumption and to excel in the Green Plus RINA Classification.

It all started in 2009 when Zeelander owner and Chairman Sietse Koopmans embarked on his own circumnavigation of the world on board his explorer Zeepaard. This incredible and uplifting journey lasted over 3 years and covered 50,000 miles, visiting 39 countries.

Being Dutch and with an engineering background from the oil industry, Sietse and the Zeelander team designed the yacht to the point of perfection. Taking every aspect of the yacht into consideration, HVAC systems, generators, engines, gray water, cleaning processes for the yacht and down to the smallest light bulb. No stone has been left unturned. Every facet of the yacht has been engineered to reduce the environmental impact and reduce overall running costs.

Zeelander’s historic involvement in noise and vibration control plays an important part in the development of the Zeelander Z164. The world tour, for which Sietse received the Voyager’s Award at the prestigious 2014 World Superyacht Design Awards, gave him countless experiences and invaluable knowledge which was key in the design of the Zeelander Z164.

Presenting the Luxury Explorer Z164 to the industry in Monaco at the beginning of May, Global Marketing Director Ylja Venema says:

The introduction was a huge success and opened many doors for us. The story around the Z164 is truly amazing and will completely change the world of long-distance yacht travel.  All the industry professionals we visited were very enthusiastic about the Z164 and praised Zeelander for its innovation in this project. For an ambitious and revolutionary company like Zeelander, this is a positive boost!”
