A passionate yachtsman and water sport enthusiast, Wim van der Valk founded the company that bears his name in 1967 and remains the driving force behind it today. Since its inception, Van der Valk has built a rich heritage in both steel and aluminium motor yachts. The success of the first cabin and aft-cabin design cruisers measuring from seven to ten metres quickly attracted widespread acclaim from the yachting public. Today, Van der Valk’s production facilities in Waalwijk (NL) produce only a select number of bespoke yachts every year. This ensures unrivalled quality and exclusivity for individual owners.
Ever since Van der Valk was founded in 1967, final product quality has been their highest priority. The yard’s professionals are selected both for their skill and for their passion for yachtbuilding. All take great pride in their work and are dedicated to ensuring that even the smallest details are executed perfectly. A unique combination of talents – old-school craftsmanship, passion, pride and precision – ensures that the yachts they create are of consummate quality.
Quality and craftsmanship are associated with delicate, pure materials. Naturally, they set the highest standards where components and materials are concerned: these are all carefully selected for quality, appearance and durability.
Specialised joiners build fully personalised and bespoke interiors. They do not use standard moulds, simply because every yacht is unique. Each interior is entirely built with resolutely contemporary tools and methods – but traditional and artisanal priorities and attention to detail are proudly maintained. These attitudes and processes are reflected in every step of the building process.
Each and every yacht benefits from the strictest quality control and a first-rate construction process. Only after intensive sea trials and quality control procedures can boats leave the yard for delivery to their new owners.
