Luxury Voyager

With the launch of the Voyager 61, the first in a brand-new line of luxury mini-superyachts, the Van den Hoven yard in the Netherlands has made true its promise to offer something genuinely different.

Designed and built to allow fans of this pedigree brand to travel significantly further at higher speeds, the Voyager range covers every conceivable wish for a high-end motoryacht between 50 and 80 feet.

The Dutch yard has successfully channelled the excellence of construction and finish on which its fine reputation is based into an impressive all-aluminium fast-displacement yacht that enables long distances to be covered in good time and serious comfort.

Van den Hoven has carved a niche over the past two decades among connoisseurs of fine cruising, creating around 60 fully custom steel motoryachts between 15 and 24 m. The yard’s clients have embraced the exclusive blend of space, finishing, comfort and performance found in this size range. They have also been the inspiration behind the Voyager concept, which is being built in aluminium in order to meet a specific request, says Van den Hoven.

“We have been regularly hearing from clients who are looking to travel further and get to their chosen destinations faster,” explains Yard Director Bart van den Hoven. “At the same time, they have no desire to sacrifice any of the luxury and comfort they associate with the Van der Hoven brand. A fast-displacement yacht made from aluminium is ideal; with a top speed of 22.5 knots, the distances quickly seem shorter and the longer passages are made in considerable comfort.”

The launch of the Voyager 61 has confirmed an impressive performance that matches the quality of the design and build. “Having sailed on so many motoryachts over the past 30 years, I can in all honesty say that this yacht performs exceptionally well,” says Van den Hoven. “I felt it straightaway on the first sea trial. The Voyager is very manoeuvrable, easy to berth, accelerates quickly and consumes very little fuel: 24 litres an hour at a speed of eight knots is really efficient for a yacht with this much space.”
