Dutch builders, Van der Valk, is introducing a new Cor D. Rover -designed Pilot explorer yacht series. All aluminum, and available in a range of lengths starting with 75 feet (23 meters), there is lots of outdoor space as well as plenty of interior volume. The versatile interior design is by Milan-based studio Hot Lab.


"Our goal is to ensure a fantastic sense of comfort for the modern explorer Pilot"' says Antonio Romano, partner and marketing director at Hot Lab. "We’re creating a super-inspiring interior that is precisely designed and detailed throughout and where relaxation is a way of life. The interior décor and styling are wonderfully rich and at the same time contemporary, reflecting the rugged sophistication of this superb motoryacht."


"The craftsmen at Van der Valk can’t wait to translate the rounded edges, precious leather details and elegant joinery that you can see on these renderings into reality. The main materials used will be brushed oak, white birch, white glossy lacquered woods, white leather, ceramic white and chrome", adds Enrico Lumini, partner and design director at Hot Lab.


This marriage between Dutch yacht building and Italian design flair is going to lead to something very special indeed,” says Van der Valk’s head of sales and marketing Yoeri Bijker. “When adding a new range to our portfolio like the Pilot it was crucial that the interior design had the quality to match. Hot Lab have devised a timeless look that is unfettered by the constraints of the moment, perfectly capturing the spirit we have in mind with the Pilot.”
