VanDutch 40

‘Special’ is a word used far too frequently in description. We’ll leave it to you to characterize the 2018 VanDutch 40 how you’d like. The floor is yours. Before you decide, look to a redesigned topdeck experience, redesigned and upgraded helm, new captain’s controls improved accessibility, and more. The most important element though, is its unique style. Using ‘special’ might be too direct, ‘amazing’ may be too euphoric; but that is for you to decide. The VanDutch 40 is classic, redefined.
