The 32m custom superyacht is the largest of the Raised Pilothouse series and will be delivered to the owners in June

The recent launch of Van der Valk’s 32-metre Jangada 2 has added another impressive member to the fleet of Dutch superyachts. Created for a repeat client, this innovative motoryacht is the fifth and largest to date of the yard’s Raised Pilothouse custom-series line. Jangada 2 is now being trialed at sea, paces ahead of its final delivery in June to its delighted owners.

Working in close partnership with designers Nick Top and Guido de Groot as well as the Van der Valk team, the owners of Jangada 2 made sure that their new yacht is even more customised to their requirements. The specific wishes were very detailed, such as allowing the VIP suite bathroom on the main deck to be closed off for use by guests during the day without entering the bedroom itself, adding to the crew accommodations and designing an even more spacious galley by optimising the functional area under the pilothouse.

This kind of smart thinking typifies the genuinely bespoke nature of this yacht, the reason why Van der Valk’s Raised Pilothouse line has been such a hit. The Jangada 2 makes a clear statement of her own. She has a minimalistic interior style that is based primarily on whitewashed European oak. The flybridge deck has an outdoor dining area, a sunbathing space with plenty of loose sunbeds, an all-aluminium hardtop providing ample shade and a smart wet bar.

The main deck aft is spacious with curved glass sliding doors to the lounge, while a VIP suite forward offers fine views. The full-beam owner’s stateroom is on the lower deck and includes large his-and-her wardrobes and a dedicated office area. There are three other cabins sleeping seven adults and children, bringing the guest total to a maximum of eleven.

Jangada 2 will head to the Mediterranean in June for a relaxing summer of cruising along the Côte d’Azur. The owners have agreed to share their new prized possession with the wider public as she makes her debut at the glamorous Cannes Yachting Festival in September.
