First official shots of VanDutch 56 cruising the Venice Lagoon
Contemporary classicism, timeless lines, elegance and lifestyle. Cantiere del Pardo, on the hull lines designed by Muller Design, brings to the water the new VanDutch 56, the fourth model of the range which, in terms of size, is between 48 and 75 feet in the line of yachts designed and built by the Forlì shipyard, after the acquisition of the brand founded in Holland in 2008. The VanDutch 56 is the synthesis of performance, design, and comfort - a boat capable of combining exclusivity, the highest quality construction. Made in Italy and the excellence of privileged services required by the owners in the most sought-after international locations.
Comfort as the first destination
Getting onboard the new VanDutch 56 is a desire to escape from the daily routine, a desire to be seduced by the charm of the sea, taking advantage of the large volumes on deck to relax in the lounge areas and move safely between the generous spaces of the boat. A dive into the water, relaxing in the comfortable sunbathing areas, the freedom to go below deck to rest or for a refreshing moment.
The project of the VanDutch 56 has been conceived to allow the owners to live every moment open - air in complete autonomy, but also to share the pleasure of marine life in the company of family and friends thanks to the possibility to board up to 12 guests.
VanDutch 56 Iconic yacht, for uncompromised locations
The distinctive elegance of the VanDutch 56 is the embodiment of Italian style and elegance. A unique luxury powerboat, distinguished by streamlined water lines and a high-impact exterior layout. Its beveled and sinuous shapes perfectly match the incredible location of Venice. The majestic and unique floating city, unmistakable worldwide, was the photo shooting scene of the brand-new VanDutch 56 edition. Each VanDutch model is deeply linked to Italian locations renowned for style, elegance and exclusivity, innate features of VanDutch DNA. This combination highlights the VanDutch brand identity, aiming at an elite audience that seeks great performances and a streamlined design with smooth edgeless lines.
VanDutch 56 had the unique privilege of entering and being shot inside the docks of The Venice Arsenal. A historical symbol of the city and heart of the Venetian shipbuilding industry since the 12th century. Then the set moved north to the nearby island of Burano, the unparalleled home of the finest blown glass. This location is depicted by the iconic colorful houses, which perfectly fits the VanDutch 56 where the photo shooting took place.
The elegance of the internationally renowned VanDutch brand, recently acquired by Cantiere del Pardo in 2020, is matched with the most beautiful and elegant Italian locations. This wants to reflect the soul of VanDutch and all the glamour and exclusivity associated with it. Buying VanDutch doesn’t simply mean buying a Yacht, but it is strictly linked to the VanDutch experience and all the wide selection of services, events and parties organized by the VanDutch centers.
An exclusive island 56 feet long
From sunrise to sunset, then begin other new days at sea and experience the VanDutch 56 as a loft on the sea. The available spaces follow a layout designed to offer the comfort expected from yachts of larger dimensions. On deck, the backrests of the large aft sundeck are wide and adjustable to relax even during the fastest cruises. The comfortable L-shaped sofas located in the large cockpit and completed by a central table offer a comfortable space for breakfast, lunch, appetizers and dinners on board. The sternplatform, which can be lowered to allow a practical and safe access to the water, is the area that adds an even more lounge atmosphere to the VanDutch 56, bringing guests on a practical and functional terrace in contact with the sea.
Time to party? The fun is all inclusive
The bar counter and spacious fridge in the cockpit allow you to prepare snacks and cocktails in minutes, turning the VanDutch 56 into a rooftop where the skyline is made only of waves and sun on the horizon. The comfortable cup holders make you forget all thoughts and let you be lulled by the notes of the excellent sound system, together with the diffused lighting throughout the deck. Because on the VanDutch 56, as on the other VanDutch yachts, from Saint Tropez to Miami, the navigation coordinates always lead to the same destination: the joy of living at sea.
Garmin electronics and technology, safety coordinates
The on-board instrumentation bears the prestigious signature of Garmin Marine with EmpireBus technology. That is, the certainty of being able to face the sea managing engines and maneuvers through an innovative platform for simplified navigation. The control of the VanDutch 56 is from a single console that includes two 16-inch displays from which you can coordinate the entire home automation of the boat. Among the many features available that can be managed from the command center: the programming of the lighting, audio system and air conditioner. The result: a totally clean and rational dashboard, where the only operational keys are digital, operated from the display for navigation in total safety and maximum comfort.
Volvo IPS engine: it comes true on the VanDutch 56
Innovation is following the evolution of the market in order to always offer the best to VanDutch owners. For this reason, the VanDutch 56 is the first model in the range to offer the Volvo IPS engine, with the aim of further improving performance while reducing fuel consumption and emissions. But the benefits don't finish here: this engine also allows for improved ease of use and smoother boat handling. The standard configuration of the VanDutch 56 includes two 800 IPS or, optionally, two 950 IPS.
Interiors with dual layout: open space or privacy guaranteed
The interior of the VanDutch 56 has a dual layout that meets the needs of different owners. The"lounge" layout allows experiencing the boat as a large open space with a U-shaped sofa and a central table in the bow. In the stern, on the port side, there is a linear kitchen equipped with all the comforts opposite an L-shaped sofa. Dedicated instead to those who prefer more privacy, the "cabin" version allows having a real master cabin with a double bed at the bow. This second layout proposes, in the aft part of the interiors, the same solution with L-shaped sofa and linear kitchen, with the possibility to add a second cabin with two separate single beds.
VanDutch 56, endless customization possibilities
Each owner cruises with a unique VanDutch. The VanDutch 56, like the other models in the range, can be customized to put an accent of exclusivity over every detail. In fact, a wide range of fabrics and colors is available to give a custom touch to the onboard cushions, as well as an infinite number of colors to give a special personality to the hull paintwork.
