This well maintained Van der Valk Vitesse 56/59 is an icon in its class. The yacht is very spacious and comfortable, making it very suitable for longer trips or living on board. With a steering position both in the saloon and on the fly-bridge and is easy to manoeuvre, thanks to the 2 powerful engines and the available hydraulic bow and stern thrusters which can all be operated via the Hydronautica remote control. The interior has largely had a refit, which gives it a contemporary look. The engine room is very neat, well laid out and professionally constructed. An other advantage are the low hours on both engines, only 865 hours! Note that this vessel does not meet the CVO obligation with 116 m3. The buyer is responsible for this. The CVO obligation only applies to inland waterways, not to the seas. We cordially invite you to come and see this yacht!
