No Open Day in 2019

No Open Day in 2019

No Open Day in 2019 Van den Hoven Jachtbouw is currently working at full capacity on four vessels, which means both our halls are fully occupied. We therefore have to carefully plan and organise our activities in order to meet our delivery agreements with clients. The first boat will be launched in February and head straight off for Belgium. As the next launch won’t take place until the summer, there will be [...]

First draft sketches for an Executive 2400

First draft sketches for an Executive 2400 We quite regularly receive questions about motoryachts with a length of 25 metres. Having decided to accommodate these requests with a draft design by Arnold de Ruijter, the results are pretty impressive. We are curious to see if you agree.  While it remains a highly recognisable Van den Hoven from the Executive series, the new design is more spacious than other yachts we have built [...]

Construction underway on third 1700 Mk2

Construction underway on third 1700 Mk2 Fans of the successful 1700 Mk2 can acquire and shape the third yacht in the line. Construction has recently started and we expect this lovely yacht to be ready for her new owner by the spring of 2020. In principle, she will not differ much from the first two [...]

Executive 2100 finished in the summer

Executive 2100 finished in the summer The owners of the new Executive 2100 are eagerly awaiting the launch of their new motoryacht. Understandably so as the development of this very special boat has revolved around two concepts: space and comfort. And, as every sailor knows, these are indispensable features on a yacht that is intended [...]

Second 1700 Mk2 completed this month

Second 1700 Mk2 completed this month The owners of the second 1700 Mk2, who are Belgian and close friends with the owners of the 2100 described below, will enjoy a layout that’s completely different from that of the first 1700 Mk2. It will centre largely on a generous salon with corner settee and TV cabinet. [...]

Construction of Voyager 1800 starts in April

Construction of Voyager 1800 starts in April April will see a start made on the modern and fast-sailing aluminium Voyager 1800. We will build this vessel entirely in house, from the aluminium hull to the finishing and from the paintwork to the installation of the equipment.  We are currently working hard on the specifications. Once everything has been calculated, we will be able to determine the exact price. Our goal is to build efficiently and based on smart [...]

Vaar deze zomer met een nieuwe 1500 Mk2

Sail a new 1500 Mk2 this summer

Sail a new 1500 Mk2 this summer The success of the 1500 Mk2 has again been confirmed by the build of the fourth yacht in this line, due for delivery in the summer of 2019. This stunning boat will not be radically different from the first three 1500 Mk2s so now is a good time [...]

Development phase for Voyager 1800 almost finished

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 [...]

Tante Kee met aanlegsteiger 2

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 [...]

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 [...]
