The new VanDutch 75, which was recently recognized by the International Superyacht Society for its overall design and performance, will be ready this fall and will be offered only to owners of the VanDutch 55 model.

Measuring 75 feet and powered by two high-performance Volvo engines, the VanDutch 75 produces 2 x 1,800 CV — or a horsepower of 3,550 — and can reach a top speed of 40 knots.

The flagship model can accommodate as many as 40 guests.

“The VanDutch 75 is unlike any other member of the VanDutch family,” VanDutch Miami vice president Nicholas Cardoza said in a statement. “Its extensive waterline, massive length, powerful engine, superior aesthetic and internal engineering make it exceptionally easy to maneuver and ensure a smooth, quiet ride in any sea conditions. In addition to its advanced technology, its ultimate contemporary design is raising the bar for future yacht designs.”
