Striking lines

The Van der Valk 32m MY “Jangada” has successfully been launched this week. She was designed for an experienced owner and created around a very functional GA that meets the specific requirements of the family, even taking into account any future grandchildren.

“In a similar vein, the bathroom of the VIP suite on the main deck can be closed off for use by guests during the day after swimming and the like without entering the bedroom itself. This kind of smart thinking typifies the genuinely bespoke nature of the project. Other examples of specific requests on Jangada 2 include a minimalistic interior style based principally on whitewashed European oak.

The flybridge deck has an outdoor dining area, a sunbathing space with plenty of loose sunbeds and an all-aluminium hardtop providing ample shade, as well as a smart wet bar.
The main deck aft is spacious and inviting, with a wide range of loose furniture. Curved glass sliding doors connects this area to the roomy saloon. The large raised pilothouse houses a cosy U-shaped sofa as well as the main helm position. Further forward is a generous, well-equipped galley with lots of storage space, and the deck also features a day head. The VIP cabin with ensuite bathroom is located furthest forward, offering some fine views.

 

The lower deck houses a selection of comfortable accommodations for all who sail on Jangada 2. The full-beam master suite features a separate bathroom & head, large his & her wardrobes, and an office desk to port flanked by a sofa starboard side. A second well-proportioned double suite is found on the port side. Reflecting the fact that Jangada 2 will often serve as a family boat, there other three cabins on this deck are designed with children in mind, sleeping up to eight kids in four sets of bunk beds.

 

The crew area is forward on the lower deck, comprising a captain’s cabin and two cabins sleeping four other crew members, all with ensuite facilities. There is also a dedicated crew mess and pantry. The lazarette/garage aft will have capacity for two wave runners and double as a beach with a hydraulic platform.

 

The hull of Jangada 2 is fitted with a Van Oossanen Hull Vane fixed foil for enhanced fuel efficiency along with a bulbous bow. A VEEM 120 zero-speed gyroscopic stabiliser will make sure she is comfortably steady even in choppy seas. The yacht’s propulsion package comprises twin MTU 12V2000 M96L engines with a capacity of 1432 kW at 2450 rpm, as well as twin 36-kilowatt generators. Her maximum speed is 22 knots, while she cruises at a brisk 18 knots.
