VALQUEST is a brand new 134ft Dubois designed Fast Cruising Sloop launched in 2010 from the Dutch Shipyard Bloemsma & Van Breemen, one of the highest quality shipyards in the Netherlands. This yard only build one-off custom designs for the most discerning clients, therefore VALQUEST is very special.
VALQUEST features sleek looks, a silver metallic hull, a low profile wheelhouse, and a clean deck. She has been specifically designed for long-range cruising with high fuel tank capacity and spacious storage. She is equipped with dual head stays, a roll-away boom with captive winches enabling all sail handling systems, and hydraulically operated running backstays. Twin-prow anchors on the bow allow the yacht to be fixed in all locations.
VALQUEST’s interior features a state-of-the-art design, with a high-gloss mahogany and white leather finish throughout. The interior feels unusually luminous and the split level saloons blend together extremely well to form a light and spacious area for dining and relaxation. The 4 cabin layout is composed of a large master suite, 2 double bedded cabins, and a twin bedded cabin, all with ensuite facilities.
Her exterior is simply superb for dining, with a sheltered cockpit area and plenty of space to stretch out and relax. There are loungers for sunbathing and a tented area forward for those who want to cruise sheltered from the sun.
