René Van Der Velden‘s 110 ft cruiser is an ideal vessel for today’s economy-minded families. She was created to assure fun, pleasure as well as low building and running costs. The René Van Der Velden 110’ superyacht is based on a more economical steel hull, with each living area made as versatile as possible, without incorporating cumbersome features and over-sophisticated technology that can be found unnecessary and expensive by many owners. All of this has been created without any compromise on quality and comfort.

On typical three-deck, flying-bridge of this size, guests usually spend most time in the skylounge, reserving the saloon for less frequent formal use and dining. Here the saloon, with up to five sliding doors, can be opened in fine weather as a real skylounge, or closed for cosy gatherings or dining. Forward, separated by the galley, day head, and central stairway, a spacious full-width owner’s suite with private entrance offers maximum privacy.

Abaft the wheelhouse owners have a combined flying bridge with an alternate skylounge. Forward it’s wrapped – above and on two sides – by sliding glass panels that can be closed for protection or opened wide to the fresh air. (Eliminating a separate flying bridge saves weight aloft to enhance stability, allowing the beam to be kept moderate, further saving construction cost and improving hydrodynamic efficiency for fuel saving.)

On most yachts, tenders and toys are stowed (or wedged ! ) on the flying bridge deck, unusually ruining the view, or in the lazarette, requiring costly hydraulic devices to assure water tightness and regulation compliance. The Rene Van Der Velden’s 110 foot motor yacht has a spacious foredeck with high bulwarks to stow them, with a crane to handle them. Built-in covered stowage is a foredeck option.

The four guest cabins, set midship for easy motion, also have flexibility. The two cabins forward can be combined into a large VIP suite with sitting room. One aft cabin can shift between double or twin- berth arrangement. An efficient crew area is forward .

With longitudinal framing, the steel hull is relatively inexpensive to build and maintain, and is easily repaired anywhere, even in low-tech facilities. The superstructure of the new 110 foot Rene Van Der Velden yacht can be aluminium or composite, depending on builder’s or client’s preference and, like the interior styling, can be customised to suit your needs and taste. The hull is shaped for comfortable speeds up to 18 knots.
