The new 48ft Zeelander 5 is the quietest yacht in its class – Robb Report
Zeelander’s latest motor yacht may scream luxury, but it’s designed to make your cruise quiet.
The striking new 48-footer, known simply as the Zeelander 5, features a clever design both inside and out, but its unique performance is perhaps what really sets it apart: the Dutch shipyard says that it is the quietest vessel in its class, even when cruising at full throttle. tilt.
The Zeelander 5 is the successor to the popular flagship Z72 which was unveiled in 2018 as the largest yacht in the range. Like its predecessor, the vessel features Zeelander DNA and premium internal styling, but sports a more voluptuous silhouette with ample exterior curves and a sporty S-shaped sheer line.
The interior is not left out either. With a width of 14 feet, the vessel offers generous living space that can be furnished in a range of materials and finishes to match the personal tastes of each sailor. Styles available include Classic, Contemporary, Modern, or Nautical. If that’s not enough, Zeelander offers a tailor-made service for demanding customers who want more complex customization.
“It goes beyond the norm, where the interior can be created to your liking,” founder Sietse Koopmans said in a statement. “Each material can be obtained and processed however you wish, fitting the interior of your jet, your seaside mansion or your favorite car. “
As standard, the layout includes a huge master cabin aft with a walk-in bed and dedicated walk-in closet, as well as a luxurious V-shaped twin in the bow and a separate bathroom with shower and bathroom. The main living room, meanwhile, offers 360-degree views and includes an elegant kitchen and dining area for seven with hand-sewn leather seating.
Other highlights include a swim platform, power sunroof, and retractable sliding window in the rear which can all be enjoyed in the warmer months. There is also a sundeck located forward on the coachroof, but sailors can choose to add a curved settee or convertible lounger aft and more sofas or a sleek bar against the bulkhead.
On the power side, the Zeelander 5 can be fitted with two or three Volvo Penta IPS 500 or 650 pods. The latter delivers a maximum of 1,440 hp for a blazing top speed of 45 knots. With top-notch noise and vibration protection, Zeelander claims all you’ll hear is the sound of the wake while ripping it apart. At anchor, meanwhile, the generator and air conditioning only produce 46 decibels.
“At Zeelander, we want to inspire people to be extraordinary,” added Koopmans. “The Zeelander 5 is an embodiment of this philosophy. A sophisticated yacht that stands out and can be personalized to the taste of its owner.
The first Zeelander 5 should be launched in mid-2022.
