Zeelander Yachts shipyard has so far produced luxury boats of unmistakable style, not exceeding 55 feet (16.66 meters). However, by the end of the year, the Z72 will be launched, the new flagship of the Dutch fleet with a length of just over 22 meters, which will be available on the market in 2019.
Zeelander Yachts has revealed the details of its recent novelty - the yacht Zeelander Z72. The yacht promises to be a very remarkable flagship of the shipyard, which will combine the design of superyachts and a high level of decoration with a special profile of the Zeelander boats.
The Z72 will receive a special curved form of the bulwark, and the rounded transom will unfold, revealing a spacious bathing platform. Three pairs of large windows in the hull complement the curved shape of the yacht itself. The exterior was designed by the shipyard’s design team in conjunction with Cor D. Rover, who had also previously designed the Zeelander Z44.
Inspired by Porsche. From the first advances left to filter, the style will not differ much from that of the already known models, all characterized by a line inspired by the car coupé and with a double face stern, which opens and closes according to the needs of the moment. Above all, however, the statement by the sales manager Leonardo Van den Berg stands out. Which, to underline the stylistic continuity sought by designers, has revealed that "the yard has asked the designers to take inspiration from what Porsche has done to renew the 911: innovate without upsetting".
The interior of the Z72 is created by the shipyard’s own design team. Large glass surfaces surround the entire cabin, in front of which is a steering post, and behind it is a large dining table. In the aft designed functional galley.
On the lower level are three cabins. "Master" is in the front and is equipped with a double bed. The finish is made of dark varnished wood and leather.
Two double guest cabins are located in the central part of the hull. Each of them has a separate latrine and shower. The crew cabin is also located on the lower deck, it is accessible through a separate hatch in the stern.
The length of the new model reaches, as mentioned, the 22 meters, even if the measure can undergo variations related to the retractable stern, with a "hidden" area that can be transformed into a real gazebo on the water, with lots of Latvian and cushions. "The space on the bridge - ensures the construction site - will be ample and enjoyable, as befits a boat that will have the characteristics of a super yacht, even if of a smaller size". As for the interiors, Zeelander Yachts ensures that "they will respect the standards of the previous models, and therefore stand out for the sophisticated furnishings, the huge panoramic windows and the living spaces in total comfort».
On board the Z72 provides a garage for the tender. The yacht will be equipped with three Volvo Penta IPS engines with a power of 1000 hp, which will allow her to reach a speed of 40 knots maximum. The ship will also be equipped with Seakeeper gyrostabilizers.
