Wim Van der Valk shipyard in the Netherlands has announced its biggest project ever, with the signing of an order for a 33.3m yacht from its Continental Trawler range.

From the Continental III series of yachts, the 33.3m is a 'milestone' according to the shipyard, which has previously built yachts up to a maximum of 26m in the same series.

The new yacht will feature a completely custom built exterior and interior. Built on a tri-level design, she has a large sundeck area on the front deck and a saloon on the middle or main deck where the large dining area and kitchen are also located. Fly bridge is on the upper deck and there is a separate wheelhouse halfway between this and the main deck level.

She has twin Volvo Penta D16-MH MGX5170DC engines giving speeds of 479kW at 1.800 RPM.

The announcement was made as part of a three order windfall seen at the yard in one week. Other orders were for smaller yachts, a 23m and a 20m.

Delivery for the 33.3m Continental III is scheduled for April 2015.
