Started in January 2016, the all-aluminium Anemeli was delivered on schedule in June 2017. With interior and exterior design by Guido de Groot and naval architecture by Jaron Ginton, she is one of the first Van der Valk yachts to feature a fast displacement hull design. She also integrates some very specific requirements by the highly experienced owner.
This striking 27-metre motoryacht features a round-bilged fast displacement hull – painted in a stylish silver metallic colour. The 6.72-metre beam ensures an exceptionally spacious interior with lots of lounging space and ample accommodations.
In an unusual twist, a bulb on the submerged section artificially extends the waterline around Anemeli’s submerged body, creating the effect of a longer hull and increasing her speed and efficiency.
Another divergence from previous Van der Valk vessels in this size range – and a distinct part of the owner’s brief – is the location of the tender storage on a multifunctional Opacmare Transformer platform aft.
This also features a pantograph system and a gangway/passerelle/swimming platform that is also suitable for baggage transport. This allowed the flybridge to instead be given over to leisure activities. The flybridge features an outdoor steering position, a large U-shaped dining area, a shaded wet bar with several stools & pantry, and a sunbathing area. Meanwhile, the main deck forward is occupied by a large informal sitting space and sun pads.
Typified by a classical nautical ambience, the robust and practical interior is executed predominantly in cherrywood.
