The Raised Pilothouse series has a highly distinctive look, combining an overall modern appearance with subtle classic touches. A raised pilothouse layout means that the wheelhouse position is elevated and the forward main deck area freed for other purposes – such as a main-deck master stateroom, separate dining area or crew quarters. Van der Valk cooperated with Guido de Groot Design on both the interior and exterior of this model.

The Raised Pilothouse is suitable for the Volvo Penta IPS system, a joystick-operated pod-type boat drive system with counter-rotating forward-facing propellers. The series is also perfectly suited to a conventional shaft driven propulsion system, however.

The Raised Pilothouse is mainly built in semi-displacement, full aluminium (hard chine, moderate V hull design) designs, but can also be built in full aluminium fast-displacement (round bilged), aluminium planing (hard-chine, moderate V hull design) or steel full displacement (hard-chine or round bilged) versions.

Our latest projects


Created in partnership with Guido de Groot, this beautiful raised pilothouse yacht always stops people in their tracks. The Continental Three’s predominantly modern aesthetic is impressively combined with a range of classic touches.


The Raised Pilothouse Special is designed with the joystick-operated Volvo Penta IPS system in mind. A conventional driven system is among the possibilities too and you can also opt to build an aluminium fast displacement version. Maximum comfort is assured.


The Raised Pilothouse is available in a wide variety of steel and aluminium models, all of which benefit from stunning teak decks and first-class stainless steel features.
