Zeelander Yachts develop new bespoke design features for its semi-custom range of yachts

Zeelander Yachts has extended its options list with a series of innovations that are bound to appeal in the market for mid-sized motoryachts. From a state-of-the-art boatyard at Groot-Ammers, the experts at Zeelander have developed tailored solutions for its semi-custom range of yachts which include privacy glass and a hydraulic pasarelle.

  • Hydraulic pasarelle, privacy glass and sun awnings
  • Strong growth in the European market

"We have always worked closely with our customers to create vessels that are tailored to their personal needs," says founder Sietse Koopmans. "With our ever-growing clientele we are continuously developing new features, custom solutions and bespoke options for the most demanding clients, which benefit all future owners as well"

Zeelander's range extends to three models: the Z44, Z55 and its Z72 flagship. They all feature the same gentle flowing curves, rounded slipper sterns and sporty look. But the boats have never ceased evolving, as each client requests custom features.

One of the more visible features is a flexible hydraulic pasarelle integrated into the curved finish of the Z72's transom. This slim, elegant option extends at the touch of a button and adjusts smoothly to the height of the dock or quay astern. It is ideally suited to tight stern-to moorings at town quays or busy marinas and very convenient for those who cruise in the Mediterranean.

Large sun awnings with custom-designed lightweight carbon fibre poles were developed to provide desired shade. Combined with the vast sunpad that folds out at the elegant, raked stern, and further sunpads on the foredeck, owners and their guests have a wealth of lounging space.

On the aft and side windows on the main deck privacy glass can be implemented. The glass can be tinted with a simple click on a button. Other options include a diving plank, forward-looking sonar and a different bar setup. Zeelander also gives the option of large windows on the Z55 - similar to the Z72 design - whose mullion-free curved glass gives uninterrupted vision for the driver and improves the 360-degrees view for guests.

Demand is growing particularly strong in the European market, keeping the yard busy in spite the challenges of the pandemic. All Zeelander models can be viewed in-build side-by-side at Zeelander's Groot-Ammers yard in the Netherlands. And visitors to this year's Cannes Yachting Festival, which takes place from 7 to 12 September 2021, will be able to tour a brand new Z55 and Z72.
