Starting its manifest in Europe, VanDutch defined itself by lacking the intricacies, material variances and system complexities of competitors. It was time to simplify the experience: straightforward for the beginner, chic for the sensational couple, versatile for the active family and powerful for the thrill seeker. It was welcoming; compelling even to those who’d never considered a life aquatic.
As the sole member of the fleet, the VanDutch 40 spidered through Europe, growing exponentially with its intuitive functionality and recognized lines. It became evident this was a social boat during partnerships between VanDutch, F1 Racing and Red Bull at the Monaco Grand Prix. Its centralized deck table and large top deck space successfully cultivated a centralized environment versus the forward-facing style of the rest. Since its maiden launch, the VanDutch 40 has delivered 170 hulls throughout the world.
From the marinas of Monaco the tale wages on, eventually gaining enough popularity to justify a more agile model for a more versatile clientele. The VanDutch 30 replicated the simple sophistication of its bigger brother, utilizing like hull lines and an open concept top deck to deliver a brand new cruising experience in its class. Later in 2013 came the VanDutch 55, who’s grand presence captivated a new style of boater pleasing crowds from Monaco to Miami. With the VanDutch 55 came a popularity with some of today’s brightest celebrities, influencers and business moguls, who’ve helped spread VanDutch Style further throughout the world. The 55’s culmination occurred with a partnership between luxury watch brand HUBLOT, when both companies embarked to create a unique version of their product to pay homage to the partner. VanDutch delivered the VanDutch 55 “Big Bang” a stealthily all-black bullet, hosting HUBLOT VIPs and celebrities from 2015 to today. In turn, the timepiece icon created a 55-piece limited edition Aerofusion timepiece, utilizing natural materials from VanDutch production for detail. The piece was sold in HUBLOT stores and direct to VanDutch owners worldwide. Now we focus on the future.
We now stand in 2018, 10 years since our first launch. To celebrate its anniversary, VanDutch has set out to inspire the social sharing of anyone with a special moment shared aboard a VanDutch since 2008. Using the hashtag #VanDutch10, revelers can share their favorite VanDutch moment alongside a global collective of fans. Alongside the anniversary campaign, VanDutch’s 2018 model year brings a collection of new products and special editions including the VanDutch 40.2, Super Yacht Edition, 48, 56 and 75, to serve any boating style or function. As a testament to the company’s avant-garde history, the 40.2 represents a new age of VanDutch design, style and function. While retaining the defined lines and simplicity of the original 40, the 40.2 starts its journey 10 in/25 cm longer and 10 in/25 cm higher than its predecessor, a notable difference able to afford brand new top deck features and an enriched luxury interior layout in its cabin. Early opportunists have already redeemed their chance to pre-order the 40.2 for Summer 2018 delivery, with hulls set to arrive to New Jersey, New York, Florida and Italy beginning this July.
The choice to identify the second generation as the 40.2 runs deeper than just a set of options and upgrades. It represents a determination to reinvigorate and reward the global collective of VanDutch owners and fans who have defined VanDutch Style. The redesigned hull was conceived through a revolutionary CNC molding process, showcasing an automated, computerized cutting procedure, which delivers a perfect mold. Although hand laid elements will always be a cornerstone to luxury yacht building, its production procedures continue to join the family of automation. Where the customer previously only desired the finished product, now they are educating themselves on the building process, materials used along with production strategies and techniques to fully understand the construction process. This evolution has placed our focus not only on the product, but its environment.
In 2018 VanDutch introduced its own production facility located in New Jersey, to focus its efforts on constructing the perfect production atmosphere. With 100,000 square feet of indoor space, each of the VanDutch models will be produced under one roof by 2019, including the new VanDutch 48, a crossover project which took the famous VanDutch 55 top deck layout and sized it down for a more adaptable vessel.
The true style of VanDutch lives within its riders. From its historic rise to relevance, to innovative production and an infusion of new models, 2018 and beyond will bring about a VanDutch style renewed. Whether you are walking the sunny beaches of Miami, or sipping rosé at Ibiza’s Blue Marlin, there’s a good chance you’ll see a VanDutch pass by. Its effortless image forever overshadowed by the utter content of its guests, enjoying the moment as if today’s cruise washes the worries away.

VanDutch is Art | Collaboration
GINVI x VanDutch photographer Alfredo Omana Padron
In early September of 2017, an exciting opportunity took shape when GINVI studios out of Rotterdam connected with VanDutch photographer Alfredo Omana Padron, to create visually stunning works from some of our most revered images. When Omana Padron and GINVI’s principal Frank Janmaat began collaborating, they selected a stunning image of a VanDutch 55 resting in the Port of Miami overlooking the city’s afternoon skyline.
The project took shape quickly, to materialize this image into GINVI’s best known work, large format poured glass prints using with crystal detailing. Both Omana Padron and Janmaat worked side by side to develop a set of unique pieces for VanDutch, even extending their project into Omana Padron’s collection of high fashion photography.
Each piece begins with a large format VanDutch print done on metallic paper, and poured with Liquid Gloss® – a transparent synthetic resin – to create an imperfect reflection of the piece, refracting light from multiple sources to make the image sparkle in hundreds of places. Employing a specially developed manual process, the photo panel is rendered with a two-layer Liquid Gloss® coating, laying 4mm thick. For added affect, crystals can be installed on top of the poured glass to add depth and one-of-a-kind flare to each piece.
AP’s of the limited edition series are on display at VanDutch Center Fort Lauderdale.
VanDutch is proud to collaborate with GINVI for this special project, opening orders for Art Basel, now through the end of the year.
Details of the work:
Dimensions: 150 x 70 cm.
Medium: Lambda print
Specialty: 2 layers of Liquid Gloss ®
Series: 40 pieces (2 AP)

VanDutch Joins as an Official PartnerHeineken’s “SAVE YOUR SEAT” Campaign to Rebuild Miami Marine Stadium Miami Marine Stadium was once among America’s most iconic destinations, hosting on-the-water performances from legendary acts like the Rolling Stones and The Beach Boys. The stadium is currently in disarray, despite enthusiasm for bringing it back to life – and now, Heineken and its partners are launching a unique campaign to help restore this crucial piece of Miami culture for generations to come. VanDutch, Heineken USA & partners like the National Trust for Historic Preservation, the City of Miami and Indiegogo, have launched a crowdfunding campaign that will propel the stadium’s restoration to its next phase. To raise campaign awareness for the Miami Marine Stadium project, VanDutch & Heineken hosted two days of on-the-water events with key retailers including Roma Cohen of Alchemist, Matthew Chevallard of Del Toro Shoes, Jaron Kanfer of UNKNWN, and restaurateur Angel Febres of Drunken Dragon. Guests were transported to the Marine Stadium via a Heineken wrapped VanDutch for a private tour of the stadium. Heineken is matching, dollar for dollar, the first $20,000 of support.

Verstappen third in German GP: “Happy to be on the podium”Published on 31 July 2016 by Mike Motilall Max Verstappen finished the German Grand Prix beautifully in third place, giving him his fourth podium finish in his young Formula 1-career. The flawless Lewis Hamilton and team mate Ricciardo crossed the line before him. During the race, Max was battling with Nico Rosberg. The German got a 5-seconds time penalty for pushing Verstappen off track, resulting in him finishing in fourth. “It was a good race”, says Max during the podium interview, where he was loudly applauded by thousands of Dutch fans. “I had a good start and from there on we had a good pace. I was really enjoying it. Then we decided to split the strategies of Ricciardo and myself, so I let him pass. We worked well as a team together today and also managed to do the pit stops well. To have a double podium and more points than Ferrari, was absolutely the main focus today and that is what we achieved. I am happy to be on the podium again and it will be a warm welcome back home in the Netherlands”, Verstappen happily concludes. When Max, after his second stop, was overtaken by Rosberg, the Red Bull Racing-driver had to go off track in order to avoid a collision. “Rosberg came from quite a distance and braked very late. For a moment I thought that he was going to hit me, so I left some room. But he didn’t turn and just drove straight on. So I had to go off track to avoid a crash.” Asked about the many Dutch fans in Germany and the next race in Belgium, Max concludes by saying: “I think that there were more Dutch flags here than German ones, very nice to see. Spa-Francorchamps is great to drive at and hopefully our car will perform well there. At Hockenheim, we didn’t expect to be that competitive and at Spa it should normally be even better. So hopefully we’ll have a great weekend there just as we had here.” Many Dutch flags were to be seen at the Hockenheim race track, where the German Grand Prix got underway in dry conditions. Thousands of Dutch fans see Nico Rosberg get a poor start off the line and dropping back to fourth place. Max Verstappen on the other hand, has a rocket start and passes team mate Ricciardo from the outside in the first corner which puts him second. Palmer runs into Massa at the hairpin corner, but both are able to continue on. The rest of the field gets round the first lap unscathed. Rosberg is pushing Ricciardo but is unable to make a move stick. On lap nine, Max reports on the radio: “I am beginning to struggle with my rear tyres.” He manages to do a few more laps before he eventually pits to get some new super softs strapped on. A very fast pit stop in 2.2 seconds puts him seventh when he gets back on track. Team mate Ricciardo switches a lap later to the softs, just like Lewis Hamilton, meaning Verstappen and Rosberg are on a different tyre strategy. When all the drivers have done their stops, Max is second again. On lap nineteen, Max gets told by his team that Hamilton is doing the same lap times as he is. Max is some seven seconds astray from Hamilton and is another one-and-a-half seconds up on Ricciardo. Max reports, on lap 21, that he is not comfortable with the super softs tyres on his car. “This is definitely not the race tyre”, the Dutchman tells his team on the radio. However, Max is able to maintain the tempo and on lap 29 he comes in to switch to the soft compound tyre. Exiting the pits, Nico Rosberg is too close for comfort. With a bold overtake maneuver, he is able to pass the Dutchman, but in doing so he pushes the youngster off track. The incident gets scrutinized by the stewards of the race, who eventually slap Rosberg with a 5-seconds time penalty that he needs to take at his next pit stop. Rosberg then gets a move on to create a gap to Verstappen greater than five seconds. Ricciardo, on the faster super soft tyre, is pushing Verstappen and eventually overtakes him on lap 40. Max is able to keep up with the tempo quite reasonably but complains about understeer. On lap 45, Rosberg pits for his change of tyres and also takes his 5-seconds time penalty. A lap later, Max also pits for his final stop. He switches to the super softs and rejoins behind of team mate Ricciardo and well ahead of Rosberg, in third place. In the closing stages of the race, the order of the cars at the front remains the same. The dominant Lewis Hamilton scores his fifth victory. Ricciardo is second, Verstappen takes third and his fourth podium this season. The double podium is an excellent result for the Red Bull Racing-team that has now passed Ferrari in the constructor’s standings. Nico Rosberg, despite his penalty, finishes in fourth and ahead of the both Ferrari’s of Vettel and Raikkonen.

VanDutch & Benetti 90 meter (280 feet) Mega Yacht LionHeart!Editor Charl van Rooy Photos by Karl Borg Benetti’s largest yacht to date, the 90 metre superyacht Lionheart, has departed Italian waters this week and arrived at the island of Malta as her first port of call. It is believed that the yacht has been delivered to her owner and Lionheart now takes over the title from the 1980-built superyacht Kingdom 5KR (then Nabila) as the Italian shipyard’s largest yacht ever built. It seems Lionheart will be traveling with a private chase tender complete with its own custom graphics to match the yacht’s name. Superyacht photographer Karl Borg took these exclusive photos of the yacht today where she is currently moored in Malta’s Grand Harbour Marina. Lionheart is built for a repeat client, who took delivery of a 63 metre Benetti yacht by the same name in 2006, now known as Lioness V.

Max Verstappen becomes youngest F1 winner in history at Spanish Grand Prix.Max Verstappen became the youngest winner in Formula One history when he triumphed on his Red Bull debut in Sunday’s Spanish Grand Prix. Verstappen had been branded a future world champion almost as soon as he entered the sport and no one doubts that now. When Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg crashed out of the race on the opening lap it seemed that certain that that would remain the talking point for the rest of the day. But in the absence of the Mercedes we had a proper car race. Verstappen, 18 years and 227 days old, also became the first Dutch winner as he pushed the Ferrari pair of Kimi Raikkonen and Sebastan Vettel into second and third place; Daniel Ricciardo suffered a puncture on the penultimate lap but still hobbled over the line in fourth. Vettel, who was the previous youngest driver after winning the Italian Grand Prix in 2008, said: “This is Max’s day. As a sportsman we must respect that. Verstappen only became a Red Bull driver this month. He was promoted to the team from Toro Rosso, replacing Daniil Kvyat, who had had an unhappy start to the season. He said afterwards: “It feels amazing. I can’t believe it. It was a great race. I have to say thank you to the team for giving me such a great car. “To win in the first race is such an amazing feeling. My dad helped me a lot to achieve this, this is amazing. I couldn’t believe I was leading the race. I held onto the tyres. We had the right strategy. It’s a very big surprise. I had quite a bit of pressure from Kimi but it is difficult to overtake here.” Verstappen led for the final 32 of the 66 laps. His two-stop strategy proved a winner but he finished just 0.6 seconds ahead of Raikkonen, who put him under sustained pressure. Raikkonen, who has now overtaken Hamilton in the championship, added: “The really scary thing is that I used to race against his father [Jos].” Source of information: The Guardian https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2016/may/15/max-verstappen-youngest-winner-f1-history-spanish-gran-prix
All aboard the love boat! Doutzen Kroes goes for an amorous cruise with husband Sunnery James and his wealthy friendsThey have been married for just over five years. But Doutzen Kroes and husband Sunnery James acted like newlyweds as they went for a amorous cruise in Florida on Monday. The Victoria’s Secret model and her disc jockey other half looked in bliss as they relaxed on board the boat of his nightclub tycoon friend David Grutman. The couple were having a whale of a time as they spent some quality time together in the Atlantic coast city of Miami. Doutzen, 31, looked like she was having a great time with her electronic dance music star husband, save for a moment when she recoiled from his touch after he stroked her face without her approval. The professional clotheshorse was looking in typically fine form as she pranced around in a hooded top, blue T-shirt, casual pink skirt and flip-flops, though she took them off when she climbed aboard. Her man meanwhile was dressed in a laid back ensemble of green jacket, black T-shirt and shorts, and a white pair of trainers. He gave into temptation and added some bling to his ensemble by wearing a chunky golden necklace.

PERFECT FUSIONIn what may be Hublot’s most interesting partnership yet they have collaborated with iconic yacht manufacture VanDutch. The Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph “VanDutch” will be limited to 55 pieces. This number is significant because it matches the total length of the VanDutch 55. VanDutch obviously shares the same passion for creating the finest products available for their clients. The VanDutch Hublot features a sporty yet refined 45mm case in polished black ceramic. The bezel utilizes the same materials found on the deck of a VanDutch 55. (VanDutch 55 decks are covered with a teak composite, the Esthec, which gives the luxurious experience of the teak without the drawbacks of maintenance). This gives the watch a stunning contrast of a black ceramic case against a wood bezel. The watch face is skeletonized to showcase the self-winding chronograph movement. Each pieces comes with two interchangeable straps… one with the traditional Hublot rubber strap, perfect for diving into the ocean and one made to match the VanDutch 55 seats (black rubber with grey calf with grey stitching), perfect for a day cruising on the ocean. With this watch, Hublot has created a piece that transcends its partnership with VanDutch. While VanDutch 55 owners are sure to want a watch that matches their boat… this is a piece designed so successfully that it could appeal to anyone interested in watches (even if they are scared of the water). It is Watchmaking, Boating, Luxury and Design all perfectly married. When you buy a VanDutch, you instantly get a lot more friends. If you can’t afford one, Hublot is offering a free day on their “Big Bang” VanDutch in Miami to anyone who buys the watch.

Da Costa wins spectacular Buenos Aires ePrix
Antonio Felix da Costa clinched victory in an action-packed Buenos Aires ePrix ahead of e.dams-Renault’s Nicolas Prost and China Racing’s Nelson Piquet Jr.
The Amlin Aguri / VanDutch driver kept clear of trouble and slowly made his way into the lead as his rivals fell by the wayside. Both polesitter Sebastien Buemi and championship leader Lucas di Grassi retired with suspension failures at the fast Turn 8 and 9 chicane.
Venturi’s Nick Heidfeld looked favourite to win in the closing stages but a drive-through penalty for speeding in the pitlane scuppered his chances.
Da Costa, who missed the opening round in Beijing, progressed up the field from eighth on the grid to collect the full 25 points.
Prost managed to steer clear of the battle between Daniel Abt and Jaime Alguersuari in the closing stages, an over-optimistic move by the Audi Sport ABT driver sent the Spaniard into a spin. Abt was out on the spot, but Alguersuari managed to limp his car home in fourth.
Piquet picked up his second consecutive podium despite being held behind the red light and losing a lap in the pitlane during the safety car period.
The Qualcomm Safety Car was deployed after Mahindra Racing’s Karun Chandhok also fell victim to broken rear suspension at the Turn 8 and 9 chicane. Piquet wasn’t the only driver to be effected by the confusion as a number of drivers had to pass the safety car to unlap themselves.
Virgin Racing’s Sam Bird was part of the lead group but he picked up a drive-through penalty for ignoring the pit exit lights.
Bruno Senna, who was one of the FanBoost winners, finished fifth ahead of a feisty Jean-Eric Vergne who damaged his nosecone in the fight for the final podium spot.
Da Costa’s team-mate Salvador Duran clinched four points in eighth ahead of Heidfeld in ninth. Dragon Racing’s Oriol Servia rounded out the top-10 positions while Formula E debutant Marco Andretti came home in 13th place.
Before the race all the drivers, teams and the Formula E Championship together with the City of Buenos Aires, Argentinean authorities and the FIA President Jean Todt gathered on the grid for a minute silence to pay respect to the victims of the dramatic terrorist attack which happened in Paris earlier this week.
The race attracted a sell-out crowd of around 20,000 who also witnessed the first round of the Formula E School Series, which was won by Lucas Gambante representing the Antonio Bermejo school.
