Van Dutch 40, ROYAL I oozes elegance, performance and comfort on the French Riviera


The iconic Van Dutch 40 motor yacht is the product of the world famous Dutch design house, Vanguard. Van Dutch’s are striking avant garde creations, incorporating modern design and advanced technology. Vanguard’s aims were quite simple: to “create a lightweight yacht with longevity and economical practicality.” The V-Shaped engine configuration creates a sharpened aft to maximise balance and the Van Dutch’s centre of gravity, optimizing speed whilst reducing fuel consumption. We must pay tribute to Frank Mulder for the design of the Van Dutch, whose underwater design has made spray and slamming a thing of the past.

Reaching speeds of up to 40 knots, the Van Dutch 40 provides excellent performance and cornering. The Yanmar engine reduces engine noise and vibrations, which creates a smooth and silent ride.Screen-Shot-2012-08-24-at-15.26.08 She also incorporates an autopilot and navigation system, making her a very simple luxury yacht to skipper.

Below deck, the Van Dutch is once again unique. There is a hydraulic table for 8 which can transform into a bed. Guests will find the latest televisions, sound systems and kitchen equipment. There is also a  fully functional W/C with a hot and cold water supply. The deck is covered in a teak composite, which makes maintenance very simple. The Van Dutch 40’s cockpit is a modular solarium that extends into a great lounging area.

There are two other models in the Van Dutch portfolio: the 30ft and the 55ft. They both incorporate the exquisite design features of the 40, as well as performance and comfort. We can offer the Van Dutch 40 from a range of prestigious ports on the Riviera, including Monaco, Antibes, Golfe Juan, Cannes and St Tropez.
