The VDL Shipyards range is based on the VDL Pilot series of motor yachts with steel hulls ranging in length from 11 to 14 metres. The company also produced displacement yachts, and the most remarkable model of the shipyard in this class is the VDL 1600 Royal, which was equipped with two Volvo Penta TAMD63L-A engines and could reach 30 knots.


The hulls of all VDL Shipyards yachts are made of high quality steel and are distinguished by their durability.
