The BeachClub 600 creates more space for leisure by placing engine room inside swim platform

After years of development and months of construction, the very first BeachClub motoryacht is now seeing the light of day in the Netherlands. After the launch at the Van der Valk yard, the 19-metre BeachClub 600 will now embark on sea trials before being presented to the public at the major boat shows in the months ahead.

Visitors to Van der Valk’s recent open house event were astonished at the amount of space that the BeachClub 600 offers for leisure purposes both inside and out. The idea of placing an engine room within the swimming platform area was developed in partnership with two other stars of the Dutch yachting world, Ginton Naval Architects and designer Cor D. Rover.

Now that the first model has been launched into the water it is even easier to imagine how living so close to the water will feel on this revolutionary motoryacht. The design offers an unprecedented amount of room on the lower deck, with three outdoor zones: the 14 m² beach deck with sun lounge, a 17 m² cockpit deck with outside steering and the enormous 25 m² foredeck.

Ample space is retained for indoor luxury: an upper salon with helm and panoramic views, a lower deck lounge with galley & dinette (linked to the beach club via stunning glass doors), and three suites, including a master with phenomenal all-round views. Glass inserts in the hull add further class to the yacht’s elegant exterior.
