Fast new Voyager 1800 1

Development phase for Voyager 1800 almost finished

Together with yacht designer René van der Velden, we have reached the final stage of the development of the Voyager 1800... The new model will be propelled by twin six-cylinder Volvo Penta engines with 725 hp each for a maximum speed of around 21 knots. We are currently in talks with a range of aluminium [...]

Moor at Tante Kee

We have a great tip for people in the neighbourhood of the Kagerplassen Lakes in South Holland... The restaurant Tante Kee, located on Kaageiland and surrounded by water on all sides, has a jetty suitable for boats up to and exceeding 15 metres. The charming bistro has one of the most beautiful outdoor cafés in [...]

Casco hal indrukwekkend 2

Impressive activities in the shed

Now that the construction hull of the Executive 2100 is well underway, it has become apparent just how impressive it is… … You can clearly see that the yacht is much larger – broader, especially – than the 1850, for instance. Work is also ongoing on the second 1700 Mk2, which is now in the finishing [...]

Third 1500 Mk2 sold

Things are going well with the 1500 Mk2, a timelessly designed, balanced proposition. Sure of quickly finding an owner... for a boat made according to this popular template, Van den Hoven started building the third 1500 Mk2, tentatively named Fine Fleur, on spec last year without having a buyer ready. After the yacht was first [...]

Delivery of first 1700 mk2

The very first Executive 1700Mk2 was delivered to first-time Van den Hoven owners last month. The owners are proud of their new motoryacht, on which they plan to spend a great deal of time. The décor of the boat reflects the binational character of the owners, who are Dutch and Belgian, respectively. The owners were not [...]

Different location for construction of fourth 1500 mk2

Work will be proceeding apace on the hull of the new Executive 2100 until the end of this year... while finishing continues on the Executive 1700 Mk2. To ensure continuity, proper testing and, if necessary, a quick delivery, Van den Hoven is having a fourth hull of the successful Steel Executive 1500 Mk2 built by [...]

Show time in lelystad en Breskens

Showtime in Lelystad and Breskens

Business is brisk at Van den Hoven Jachtbouw, the sales figures are looking good, and we are working harder than ever to carefully fulfil our agreements with our clients. We are very proud of the new products we have developed, which is why we are attending two boat shows this year. We are particularly excited [...]

Coming home for a refit

It is always a nice trip down memory lane to see one of our yachts return to the yard. We increasingly see owners come back to us for refits, adaptations, maintenance or improvements to their prized possession. An example was a Van den Hoven Exclusive 1600 from 2010, purchased by new owners who wished to adapt [...]

It's always time for champagne 2

It’s always time for champagne

Members of the marina Lithse Ham visited the Scharloo marina in Waspik on 11 May as part of their tour of the Netherlands. One of the boats taking part in the tour was the gorgeous Van den Hoven 1850 Rio Grande, whose proud owners are the Dücker family.   The Dückers brought the 20 participants in the tour together, providing Michelle van den Hoven with a chance to make the acquaintance of these plucky adventurers. Such an occasion could not pass without a little celebration, so champagne and cake were [...]

Construction starts on Executive 2100

In mid-June, we will start building the hull of the new Executive 2100. Preparations are in full swing at time of writing, and we expect to start around mid-June. The new Executive 2100 is the flagship of our popular Executive line. Its elegant exterior is designed by Arnold de Ruiter, while the interior is from the boards of Bart van den Hoven. The lines are dynamic and elegant, giving the model a timeless feel that is guaranteed to still look amazing [...]
