Santa Maria T

Van der Valk 37m Explorer

Both the exterior and interior of Santa Maria T were fully customised to her owner’s wishes. Entering the aft deck from the winding staircase it is clear that this is a proper superyacht. The aft deck itself is spacious and contains an eight-person seating area with table as well as a small pantry with sink and refrigerator. A four-way foldable stainless steel door links the aft deck with the main saloon.

Exemplifying a striking art-nouveau interior style, this area is characterised by some fine detailing. The mahogany woodwork is enhanced with Pacific madrona burl inlays, solid herringbone floorings, embossed alcantara panelling on walls and ceilings, indirect lighting, and perfectly matching artwork.

The professionally equipped galley includes all the items a chef could need. The corridor on the starboard side offers access to the day head, the captain's office and the forward helm station. The three-metre dashboard is beautifully upholstered with green top grain leather and equipped with the latest SIMRAD navigation equipment. A two-person settee on each side of the dashboard allows guests to enjoy the same forward views as the captain. The wheelhouse is fitted with a side door on each side.

An upholstered spiral staircase provides access to the lower deck area. This section was designed exclusively for the owner and his guests. Fifty per cent of the total accommodation space is taken up by the owner's quarters. The main stateroom is located amidships and features a bed upholstered entirely in leather, as well as a huge walk-in wardrobe, office, lounge and ensuite bathroom. The latter is finished entirely in two marble tones – green and off-white – and features a cast iron bathtub.

The remainder of the accommodation deck is taken up by three guest cabins – a double VIP suite in the bow, a twin guest cabin to port, and a twin queen-sized bunk bed cabin to starboard. All of the guest cabins have their own private bathroom, also finished in two different tones of marble. The crew premises aft comprise three cabins with direct access to the engine room and lazarette, a spacious galley, a crew mess and two bathrooms.
