The latest raised-pilothouse motor yacht Venera from Van der Valk was seen out on the North Sea last month cruising at speeds of up to 21 knots during sea trials. Her new owners and repeat clients of the yard are set to take delivery of the new yacht during the spring of 2021. 

The 28.5-metre explorer yacht features both an exterior and custom interior design by Guido de Groot Design, naval architecture by Jaron Ginton and an engineering platform by Diana Yacht Design.

The interior style is said to be "industrial with exposed structural components" and a rugged design that blends from the exterior.
