The Explorer series is a trawler design with classic style and transatlantic range. Previously known as Continental IV, the Explorer series is available in an original round bilge or fast displacement hull design, the Explorer series ensures the excellent seakeeping and handling abilities.

With designs starting at 78’ ft and ranging up to 131’ ft, the largest Continental IV to date was the Santa Maria T, a 121’ steel hull full displacement motor yacht. Van der Valk stays at the forefront the latest technology as well and  Santa Maria T was a great example. She utilized the DMS Anti-Roll Stabilization system, the first of its kind to be used on yacht.

The results were phenomenal and the Santa Maria T was a tremendous success. Like all Van der Valks, a Continental IV can be customized to meet the owner’s needs and tastes.  Any stone, fabric, wood, layout or engineering specification can be selected by the owner.

Every new Van der Valk is custom built to exceed the owners wishes and expectations.
