After years of development and months of construction, the first BeachClub Motoryacht by Van der Valk has seen the light of day in the Netherlands. The 19-meter BeachClub 600 will now embark on sea trials. It will be presented to the public at the major boat shows in the months ahead.
At the recent Van der Valk’s open house event, visitors were amazed by the amount of space the BeachClub 600 offers for leisure time both inside and outside.
This was made possible thanks to the idea of placing an engine room within the swimming platform area. This innovative solution was developed in partnership with two other stars of the Dutch yachting world, Ginton Naval Architects and designer Cor D. Rover.
The lower deck features three outdoor zones: the 14 m² beach deck with sun lounge, a 17 m² cockpit deck with outside steering and the 25 m² foredecks. 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 glass doors), and three suites, including a master with phenomenal all-around views.
The BeachClub 600 features twin Volvo Penta IPS-950 engines, giving a top speed of 25 knots.
Two other BeachClub yachts are under construction in a larger 660 model. The first will be delivered to her owners this summer and the second will be available in the spring of next year.
