Zeelander yacht fleet welcomes new flagship, introducing the most advanced Z72 yet

A new addition to the Zeelander yacht fleet has been launched. The 20m flagship Z72 in Royal Nights Blue Metallic has been hailed as the most technologically advanced Zeelander so far.

The new Z72 is equipped with a forward-looking sonar, an underwater camera and camera system in the front and aft. The aft and side windows on the main deck have privacy glass and can be tinted with a simple click on a button. 

With a wide stern and curvy exterior lines developed in collaboration with Cor D. Rover, it looks every inch the standard-bearer.  

The yacht has three suits on the lower deck, boasts a spacious main deck saloon with huge windows and panoramic views, and a pair of alfresco social areas. A 10 square meter beach club is another unique feature.

“The client had some special requests,” says Sietse Koopmans, Founder and Chairman of Zeelander Yachts. “The main deck bar with a pair of bar stools, adjacent to the interior galley, is shortened. We designed an L-shaped sofa instead of the other two stools to the left.”

The yacht is ready for adventures. Four rod holders are installed in the stern between side boarding and swim platform. There are extra chargers and brackets for jet surf boards in the tender garage. Other extras include a diving plank on the bow. The Z72 tender garage is large enough to carry a 3.5m Williams tender.

Triple Volvo engines allow the Z72 to reach 40 knots

Triple 1,000-horsepower fuel efficient Volvo IPS 1350 engines, allow the Z72 to reach 40 knots. A Volvo Penta integrated joystick system ensures manoeuvrability.

“The array of custom updates the client requested make this a very different Z72’,” adds Koopmans, “These exciting new features belong to the superyacht class. The quality, attention to detail, feeling of space and seagoing qualities are nothing short of excellent.”
