Inspired by the Blue Shark’s powerful gills, the sides of the super yacht PRIONA are sliced in continuous lines that form the vessel’s main decks and windows.
The top surface of PRIONA yacht is created by a continuous line that wraps the front tip of the bow and circles up and around the leading edge of the upper sundeck to the rear. The use of the grand staircase evokes old-world elegance and nautical charm, which when juxtaposed against the ultra contemporary feel of PRIONA, a powerful ‘twist’ captures the imagination, grounding the design by evoking the human element.

The PRIONA appears to be taking in vast quantities of oxygen through these integrated vents, contributing to its powerful gesture. She also features two swimming pools, fore and aft, and a retractable swim deck that can store all manner of water toys and two Jet-skis. Within this crisp, bold line, the top surface of the vessel exists as one flowing, continuous slope, traversable via a grand staircase that completely warps the entire perimeter. When just glancing at an object immediately reveals it’s intended human interaction, an emotional connection to the object is made, transcending utility. He is currently busy working on some exciting luxury yacht designs, one of which is another 70m superyacht concept.

WV0106) will comfortably sleep up to 8 guests in 4 splendid cabins, including an Owner’s cabin, one VIP cabin, one twin guest cabin, as well as one bulk guest cabin.

Accommodation is provided to up to 8 guests in 4 lovely cabins, in addition to accommodation for a crew of 6 members. These include the 37m Continental Trawler motor yacht Vagabundus, representing the largest yacht for the shipyard to date.
Her interior will be a one of a kind, minimalistic interior developed together with her owner, the results of which we believe will be breathtaking. The hull and superstructure of motor yacht Trawler 37.00 have been sandblasted and preserved both internally as well as externally. The classic (art nouveau inspired) Guido de Groot Design interior will be made of Entandrophragma cylindricum Sprague Mahogany combined with Mahogany Crotch and Madrona Burl inlays. As the owner was very open to adopt new and innovative features, he decided to implement this particular system.
The curved, high-aspect ratio fins reduce drag compared to conventional fin systems and have a positive effect on the fuel consumption. Designed by Guido de Groot, the 37m Continental Trawler yacht will be the first yacht ever to boast a revolutionary new anti-roll damping system, making her a stable and comfortable vessel, with great range and efficiency. Amongst the luxury yacht projects to mention are the Continental Trawler series, which vary in size from 23 to 35 metres, of which the 37M Continental Trawler yacht is now beginning construction. Guido de Groot Design will be also responsible for the interior design of this new flagship yacht for the Wim van der Valk Shipyard. There is no break between the form elements on the PRIONA’s composition, the upper deck structure in the rear of the yacht and the side walls of the hull are derived from the same common surface. The 37M Continental Trawler motor yacht SANTA MARIA T is currently at the final stage of her outfitting, scheduled for delivery this summer. Further projects include custom interiors for yachts out of the very successful 23m Continental II fly-bridge range.
This in combination with the hull form design makes her a stable and comfortable yacht with great range and efficiency. Rather than break up the two dominant formal elements, the hull and the living spaces that rest above the deck line the PRIONA avoids tasking the viewer with too much visual information, making the composition instantly iconic.
