Custom 33m The Van der Valk Blue Jeans makes its debut

Blue Jeans, a 33-meter fully-custom superyacht built by Van der Valk in Waalwijk, the Netherlands, has been launched down the slipway.

The all-aluminum boat, designed by Guido de Groot, will be used for “kicking back and enjoying long days of pleasure” with family and friends, according to the yard. A circular sofa space on the sun deck with a central firepit and hidden beverages storage, as well as a foredeck “chillout lounge” with sun pads tucked into the bow, a U-shaped sofa, and a dining table that rises up from the deck, were featured in January renderings.

“It’s a pleasure and a privilege to build a bespoke yacht for clients who know exactly what they want,” the yard said. “This is exactly the type of task we enjoy taking on.”

Guido de Groot was also in charge of the interior design, which includes high ceilings across the main deck. Guests are met by an aft deck area with rotating sofas that can face inwards or out to sea as the vessel gets going after ascending off the swim platform.

A bar, three different seating sections, and a dining room forward with a “capstan” table that can double in size on chilly evenings to accommodate a big party of visitors make up the main saloon.

Alternatively, on the sun deck, there is a shaded al fresco dining space with a bar and a retractable diving board built into the port bulwark (another diving platform can be found on the main deck for those with a fear of heights).

While Blue Jeans is in the mid-size range of superyachts, the design provides plenty of space, with an owner’s suite, two VIP cabins, and a double stateroom for eight guests. A crew of four can sleep in additional cabins.

A spacious garage for a Carbon Craft CC130 turbojet tender, which will be deployed by a hydraulic swim platform, is also on board. Two 2600hp engines will propel the ship to a top speed of 28 knots.

Blue Jeans was first seen in June 2021, when she was relocated to a new shed for outfitting in preparation for her August 2022 arrival. Interior renderings have yet to be revealed.
