The Continental Five are explorer/expedition yachts, developed in a variety of exterior designs, both modern/futuristic looking and with more classic lines. The design can generally be said to have a distinctly masculine character. Sporting a round-bilge hull, Continental Five’s have mainly built in full displacement versions with a steel hull and aluminium superstructure, but are also available as full aluminium fast-displacement vessels.

These models are created to endure the toughest weather conditions, and are specifically designed with a significant fuel capacity, enabling them to make transatlantic passages. They feature a triple-deck configuration that offers serious interior and exterior space, and provides many different layout possibilities. The aft deck is dedicated to two large tender boats, the storage of water toys, a helicopter deck or a swimming pool.

Our latest projects


Together with Guido de Groot, we’ve developed different design options for this explorer/expedition yacht, from classic/traditional to modern/futuristic. Whichever you chose you’re assured of a Continental Five with three decks, huge outside decks, lots of space for tenders and toys, and the option to carry a helicopter.


When we say expedition we mean it so the Continental Five has significant tank capacities for major passage making. Highly suited for incorporating electric/hybrid solutions should you wish, you can also opt for an aluminium fast displacement version.


The Continental Three is available in various steel and aluminium models, all of which benefit from stunning teak decks and first-class stainless steel features.
