Wim van der Valk to start construction of 30m superyacht
By Merijn de Waard
Following strong demand from the market, the Dutch based shipyard Wim van der Valk will soon start the construction of the first 30 metre Continental III Flybridge. The Continental III is the latest addition to their range of yachts, which also includes the Continental I (15 to 20 metres), Continental II (15 to 25 metres) and the Continental Trawler (17 to 25 metres).
The all-aluminium motor yacht will be built to Lloyds classification and MCA rules. In addition to MTU and Caterpillar engine options, the Continental III is also available with 4 Volvo Penta IPS-1200 (D13-900) engines.
Once delivered the Continental III will be the largest yacht built by Wim van der Valk and construction is due to start in April/May 2013. As we reported in December 2012, the company is also building a 26 metre Continental III superyacht, which is due for delivery in August 2013.
