Last week, Dutch shipyard Van der Valk moved their latest raised pilothouse motor yacht between facilities as they prepare to launch her in May 2020. The 28.5-metre yacht Venera features both an exterior and interior design by Guido de Groot Design, naval architecture by Jaron Ginton and an engineering platform by Diana Yacht Design. Built for a repeat client of the yard, Venera is the third in Van der Valk's line of explorer motor yachts.
