VanDerHeijden Steelyachts Dynamic De Luxe 1700 (2010-)

Brief Summary

Building in steel has many advantages: Steel boats are strong, long-lasting, osmosis-free and easy to repair. But one advantage is often overlooked: Because they are built without molds or other expensive tooling that locks-in many aspects of the design, steel boats are easy to customize, too. One builder that's making the most of this is VanDerHeijden Steelyachts in The Netherlands. VanDerHeijden is a master at creating elegant smaller boats in steel, and from what we can see, the yard's Dynamic De Luxe 1700 will do nothing but enhance their reputation.
