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. The starboard engine had a full refit in the summer of 2019. We cordially invite you to come and see this yacht!
