1000 Yachts Sold

Van der Vliet celebrates the 1000th yacht sold since 1975

Van der Vliet Quality Yachts has served its world-wide client base in the selling and purchasing of motor & sailing yachts for over 40 years. The company has established a firm place in the Dutch-built-and-designed segment of the yachting industry.

Over the years Van der Vliet has built up a dynamic database of buyers, buyers representatives and detailed information on over 3500 Dutch quality yachts, resulting in many direct deals between in-house clients.

Ad van der Vliet was the founding father of Van der Vliet Dutch Quality Yachts. He created a brokerage house with a high level of specialized service on a personal level.

Today this philosophy is reflected by his son Jeroen van der Vliet who runs the company with a highly dedicated team. Their focus is to offer flexibility with an eye for innovative solutions that brings the inter­national sale of Dutch-built yachts into the future.

Since 1975, Van der Vliet has sold 1000 yachts, of which many were multiple sales. Let’s take a look at some highlights of the past years.

The sale of this 31-meter Lowland motor yacht, designed by W. de Vries Lentsch, marks the 1000th yacht Van der Vliet has sold since 1975. The sale was completed within 5 months of the start of the campaign and was a direct deal between Purchaser and Seller as both were in-house clients.

In 2016 Van der Vliet announced the superfast sale of this superfast yacht built by Dutch yard Vitters. This 31-meter motor yacht, designed by W. de Vries Lentsch, can reach speeds up to 30 knots. Within only 2 weeks after signing the sales order, there already was a serious proposal. The sale was completed in less than 3 months!

Over the years, Van der Vliet has sold this 19-meter motor yacht build by De Ruiter in the Netherlands for a total of 6 times! This was the first Moonen build for mr. Rien Moonen. Ad van der Vliet sold her for her first Dutch owner and Jeroen van der Vliet sold her to her present owner.

Another yacht that has been sold multiple times is this beautiful gaff rigged classic schooner from the one and only schooner specialist designer Henk Lunstroo. This 27-meter sailing yacht with amazing detailing has been sold 4 times by Van der Vliet.
