Van der Valk Shipyard has announced the successful launch of the 32-metre Jangada 2. Built for a repeat client, this  motoryacht is the fifth and largest to date of their Raised Pilothouse custom-series line.

Jangada 2 is now being put though her sea trial paces ahead of final delivery in June, after which she will head to the Mediterranean for a summer of cruising along the Côte d‘Azur. The owners have graciously agreed to share their new prized possession with the wider public at the Cannes boat show in September. 

Close partnerships

The owners of Jangada 2 made the most of their experiences on their first Raised Pilothouse to have their new yacht even more customised to their requirements. Working in close partnership with Nick Top and Guido de Groot, they designed some very specific details, ensuring that the VIP suite bathroom on the main deck closes off for use by guests during the day, adding to the crew accommodations and creating a more spacious galley by optimising the functional area under the pilothouse.

Smart bespoke thinking

Van der Valk says, "This kind of smart thinking typifies the genuinely bespoke nature of a yacht that reinforces why the Raised Pilothouse line has been such a hit."

There are many more ways in which Jangada 2 makes a clear statement. She has a minimalistic interior style that is based primarily on whitewashed European oak. The flybridge deck has an outdoor dining area, a sunbathing space with plenty of loose sunbeds, an all-aluminium hardtop providing ample shade and a smart wet bar.

The main deck aft is spacious with curved glass sliding doors to the lounge, while a VIP suite forward offers fine views. The full-beam owner’s stateroom is on the lower deck and includes large his-and-hers wardrobes and a dedicated office area. There are three other cabins sleeping seven adults and children, bringing the possible guest total to eleven.

And then there were five

Jangada 2is the fifth superyacht in Van der Valk's custom-series Raised Pilothouse line and the largest to date. The other four were the 27.21-metre The Next Episode, the 24.99-metre Jangada, the 26-metre Forum and the 26-metre Nicostasia. You can design your own Raised Pilothouse up to 40 metres in length…
