The luxurious VanDutch 55 is a landmark model in the company’s legacy. Its distinctive profile is reminiscent of the original VanDutch 40, including the unmistakable vertical bow and minimalistic deck lines, but with enhanced volume and interior capacity from its 16.48-metre (55-feet) length.  Naval architecture from Frank Mulder ensures the VanDutch 55 stakes its claim as one of the best performing, most cutting-edge motor boats in its size range. On the foredeck, vast sunbathing and lounging areas are available, while the cockpit enjoys expanded dining spaces and an electric Bimini.

Below deck, the VanDutch 55 provides accommodation for up to six guests, making it a fantastic boat for longer-range coastal cruising and the flagship in the VanDutch family.


The VANDUTCH 55 is fitted as standard with twin 900ph Volvo inboard engines, meaning you can easily reach speeds of up to 47 knots thanks to superior technical capability from Dutch naval architects Mulder Design.


As with all our models, the VANDUTCH 55 makes use of only the best advanced materials and construction techniques to offer clients the best possible quality and driving experience. Vacuum injected composite hull and deck construction are reinforced by strategically positioned Kevlar. The Esthec deck and interior flooring offer a teak like finish without the persistent  maintenance demands.


The VANDUTCH 55 features comfortable lounging spaces on the fore and aft deck areas, as well as comfortable cockpit seating featuring two convertible dining tables.


the VANDUTCH features a generous queen sized V-berth as well as an additional twin cabin & convertible double bed in the saloon, plus a galley station and bathroom with WC & shower.
