Written by Georgia Tindale

Construction is progressing on Van der Valk's latest motor yacht in its Raised Pilothouse line: motor yacht Helga. Based on the 26-metre Raised Pilothouse model from the Waalwijk-based shipyard, the platform of the vessel has been lengthened, giving her an overall length of 27.3 metres.Helga yacht exterior renderingPhoto: Van der Valk ShipyardWith delivery of the vessel scheduled for later this year, her new owners plan to embark on their maiden season in the Mediterranean next year. Envisioned as a family superyacht for the owners and their adult children, motor yacht Helga features a fully customised layout and interior to suit her owner's requirements.

Her all-new interior features a spacious main saloon and large seating area in the wheelhouse, with a galley located forward. Notably, the decision to accommodate dining within the wheelhouse frees up space in the saloon for additional chairs and sofas for a cosy lounge feel.
