NEW Van den Hoven 61 Voyager Fast Displacement
If you have a spare million to initiate your order for this semi-custom yacht, you’ll be getting a boat that offers Class CE A safety, extended range at trawler speeds and the ability to get there fast too.
The new Voyager 61 has a semi-displacement hull that has become more commonplace with a lot of builders whose newer buyers like this type of boat, yet want the option of speed too. Van den Hoven delivers on all counts with a top speed spec’d at 21.5 knots or higher with different engine options.
They are well-known for their quality, engineering and design, and the 61 is a perfect example of form and function. The exterior lines are refined and elegant. You have large windows and a profile that is both contemporary and timeless. The flybridge is very well integrated. The rake of the helm windshield is vertical – not only stunning but a safety feature.
The interior can be customized within limitations – finishes and limited layout changes. It’s minimalist in design with clean, contemporary lines. The interior and exterior spaces blend together creating a great cruising and entertaining platform.
“There are many choices you can make as we create your bespoke Voyager 61 together. As the yacht is built in aluminium you have tremendous flexibility in terms of the layout. A family cruiser with three cabins? Two suites with a more deluxe feel? One large master stateroom and a lounge, with room for the crew forward? The options are many and all yours on a yacht that is ideal for longer stays onboard as you use the speed to range further afield”, according to Van den Hoven.
The Van den Hoven, or any other boat of this caliber, commands about $50,000 a foot before you load it up with options and bespoke design. The Hatteras M60 is about $3.5 MM give or take. That’s a stretch from the 1970’s when you could buy a 43′ Hatteras for $34,000!
