The Groot-Ammers-based yard hailed the delivery of the first hull as a milestone in the brand’s development, embracing a more contemporary aesthetic.
With a new full-wraparound, double-curved windscreen, the helm station offers a perfect 360-degree view uncluttered by mullions. Meanwhile, there has been a noticeable interior design upgrade below decks, as Zeelander Yachtshas opted for a more modern, sleek finish that draws on the premium look and feel of natural leather.
Serenity is one of Zeelander’s brand values, and it runs to the core of the new boat. With its predecessor already considered one of the quietest yachts in its class, the new Zeelander6 takes sound and vibration attenuation to the next level. Years of development work and a few closely-guarded trade secrets mean that all you’ll hear under way is the sound of the water rushing past the hull at 40 knots. Noise levels remain below 70dBA even at full throttle, while the anchor of the generator is literally whispered quietly.
As ever, the restless team at Zeelander Yachts has introduced a host of small upgrades and options to the new Zeelander6. From the electric shore-power connector to electric sunshades over the aft deck and automatic trim control–the process of innovation is constant.
