The Van der Valk shipyard said it completed a new 82-foot Explorer semicustom trawler-style yacht designed by Guido de Groot.

The Explorer 25m is described as a go-anywhere vessel, and it features a round-bilge hull design and semidisplacement capabilities that the builder said ensure maximum fuel efficiency.

Van der Valk said the yacht has a 3,370-gallon fuel tank and is built from aluminum to keep the weight down. The twin Caterpillar C12 Acert 390-hp engines push the boat to a maximum speed of 12.8 knots, and the yard said the boat should have a long range at an 11-knot cruising speed.

The boat also can be built from steel and it has a Class A rating.

By using lots of large windows, the designer gave the saloon a spacious feel.

In the interior, the boat, which was built to spec and is for sale, can accommodate eight guests in four cabins, with crew quarters for four in the stern.

The flybridge has plenty of space for entertaining a crowd.
