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.

Coming home for a refit 4

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

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 [...]

Executive 2100 2

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 [...]

A day after our Open Day on 14 April, we launched the third 1500 Mk2. The weather was great, making for optimal conditions for a photo and video shoot here. If you are interested in finding out more about this super motoryacht, get in touch with Bart van den Hoven for an appointment or test [...]

Fast new Voyager 1800

We have discussed the exciting new design in previous issues, and have now reached the stage where the Voyager 1800 is taking a more concrete shape within the yard. The final design you see pictured above is from the boards of René van der Velden. He and Michelle van den Hoven made a detailed presentation [...]
