Zeelander Yachts have been shortlisted for Motor Yacht Exterior Design Under 25 Metres Award in The International Yacht & Aviation Awards.
The Z72 by Zeelander Yachts has curves for days, lending a stylish and understated appeal. The s-shaped deck line radiates character and timelessness.
The exterior design was inspired by the way Porsche has incrementally evolved its designs over time. The Z72 is the 3rd, and largest, Zeelander Yachts model to date. It has an S-Shaped deck line, a wide stern and all curved surfaces. By actively involving current owners in the development of new models, we were able to innovate with purpose and find solutions to everyday experiences on the water.
As a result three-quarters of the bridge deck is given over to the exterior social areas. The yacht can accommodate up to 22 people on board; there are sun pads on the foredeck and aft deck, which also features a comfortable settee with a dining table for eight providing the perfect vantage point for sundowners at anchor. Nearby, a bar with four high stools is connected to the interior galley thanks to a retractable curved window with push-button controls.
The main saloon has a 360-degree view overlooking the surroundings by virtue of panoramic windows. One of the main features is the single-level area where all social space, including a dining, galley, bar, sunbeds and beach club, are interconnected in a graceful fashion. The yacht is not only designed for elegance and comfort but also for speed.
With three 1,000hp Volvo Penta IPS 1350 engines it can propel through the water at speeds in excess of 40 knots, with driver-friendly joystick control, and at 10 knots the range reaches an impressive 1,300nm.
