Executive 1500 Mk 2

Evolution, not revolution

Step forward

The Executive 1500 Mk2 is a true Van den Hoven with clearly recognisable lines, a remarkable amount of space for its length, a high-quality finish and a special focus on comfort. The performance of this compact motoryacht makes it ideal for longer trips on the European waterways, while the low superstructure ensures you can pass most bridges.

The 1500 Mk2 is standard-equipped with a 225 hp Volvo Penta engine for silent propulsion. This D4 version is extremely efficient and comes with proven reliability and sustainability.

Like all Van den Hoven motoryachts, this model too can be adapted entirely to the owner’s wishes. As semi-custom builds allow optimal flexibility, no two Executive 1500 Mk2 yachts are the same. For example, you can choose to sleep six or have one large owner’s suite with a spacious bathroom and walk-in closet for longer stays on board.

The galley of the 1500 Mk2 comes as standard with a modern induction cooker, exhaust hood, dishwasher, refrigerator/freezer and lots of working surface.

Aft is the swimming platform and access to the easily accessible engine room. The foredeck features a comfortable sofa seating up to four, the perfect place to spend warmer days outside. 

This motoryacht can also be built with a flybridge and extra steering position. Contact info@bvandenhovenjachtbouw.nl for more information.

The most eye-catching element is the entirely new superstructure, which includes:

  • stepped sides of the wheelhouse roof to create extra curves
  • an extended aft roof to ensure it is easily closed off with an awning, providing more privacy as well as protection from the sun
  • the yacht will be fully equipped with marine glazing for a more modern and high-quality look
  • the flush deck creates a wider front of the cabin, making room for a large sofa on the foredeck

As Van den Hoven builds its yachts in steel we are able to offer a wide variety of adjustments. Our goal is to realise all wishes and demands, including a flybridge model of the Executive 1500 Mk2.
