Not one, but two!

Not one, but two exciting new Guido de Groot designs to announce as Van der Valk Shipyard starts working on the 34-metre Project 111.11 and 35-metre Project Samba. While both are based on the proven hull design of Lady Lene, also designed inside out by our design studio, everything from styling and layout to facilities and engines has been custom-designed with the clients. Each has a very different exterior styling by Guido de Groot who’s also responsible for the interior of Project Samba.

Project 111.11

From styling to layout, from facilities to engines, the 34-metre Project 111.11 and 35-metre Project Samba will be siblings only in the sense of sharing the same naval architecture and the same exquisite degree of finish. Each has a very different exterior design by Guido de Groot who will also be responsible for creating the interior of Project Samba together with her owners.


Both yachts have been ordered by experienced owners who know exactly what they’re looking for – and that Van der Valk is one of the very few yards offering such a choice in this size range. Even the hulls are adjusted to client wishes. Project 111.11 will be full displacement with twin Volvo Penta 750 hp continuous duty engines and a top speed of 14.4 knots. In contrast, Project Samba’s fast displacement hull and twin MAN 1450 hp diesels will ensure top speeds around the 17-knot mark.
