The combination of a fast displacement hull and MAN 1450 hp diesel engines enables Project Samba to achieve a top speed of 17 knots.
Noftsinger, the representative from Denison Yachting, embarked on a quest to find the perfect vessel for his client. He aimed to combine the quality associated with Northern European shipyards with the exquisite style often found in Italy or Turkey. The journey involved visiting multiple shipbuilders and exploring numerous yards to identify a shipyard capable of customizing a yacht of this caliber. Ultimately, the partnership with Van der Valk proved to be a perfect match, as Noftsinger’s clients were captivated by the yard’s attention to detail, family-owned atmosphere, and commitment to delivering their precise vision. Collaborating with Guido de Groot, a renowned master designer, further allowed for extensive customization, making the 12-month journey an unforgettable experience.
