Santa Maria T is the largest trawler yacht built by Van der Valk to date – she measures 36.80 metres in overall length, and has a 7.75-metre beam. She represents the first of the new generation trawler designs by Van der Valk and Guido de Groot Design. Both her exterior and interior were fully customised to the client’s wishes. Entering the aft deck from the winding staircase immediately makes it clear one is entering a proper superyacht.

Santa Maria T’s aft deck is spacious and contains an eight-person seating area with table as well as a small pantry with sink and refrigerator. A four-way foldable stainless steel door links the aft deck with the main saloon. Embodying a striking art-nouveau interior style, this area is characterised by detailing that is nothing short of thrilling. The mahogany woodwork is enhanced with Pacific madrona burl inlays, solid herringbone floorings, embossed alcantara panelling on walls and ceilings, indirect lighting, and perfectly matching artwork.

The professionally equipped galley includes all the items a star chef could need. The corridor on the starboard side offers access to the day head, the captain’s office and the forward helm station. The three-metre dashboard is beautifully upholstered with green top grain leather and equipped with the latest SIMRAD navigation equipment. A two-person settee on each side of the dashboard allows guests to enjoy the same forward views as the captain. The wheelhouse is fitted with a side door on each side.

An upholstered spiral staircase provides access to the lower deck area. This section was designed exclusively for the owner and his guests. Fifty per cent of the total accommodation space is taken up by the owner’s quarters. The main stateroom is located amidships and features a bed upholstered entirely in leather, as well as a huge walk-in wardrobe, office, lounge and ensuite bathroom. The latter is finished entirely in two marble tones – green and off-white – and comprises a cast iron bathtub.

The remainder of the accommodation deck is taken up by three guest cabins – a double VIP stateroom in the bow, a twin guest cabin to port, and a twin queen-sized bunk bed cabin to starboard. All of the guest cabins have their own private bathroom, also finished in two different tones of marble. The crew premises aft comprise three cabins with direct access to the engine room and lazarette, a spacious galley, a crew mess and two bathrooms.

Santa Maria T boasts a considerable engine room. The two Volvo Penta D16 MH 651 hp engines can be walked around. The D16 engines come with a rating 1 continuous duty certificate, meaning they can perform 24/7 without a single stop/reduction. Santa Maria T is the first yacht in the world delivered with an all-new two-axis fin antiroll damping system that provides stabilization both underway and at zero speed without compromising performance in either circumstance.

Other interesting equipment aboard Santa Maria T includes the side boarding ladder (with side dock for mooring a tender), hydraulic lazarette hatch, hydraulic swim ladder and customised and widened hydraulic passerelle. Her flybridge can be accessed from both inside and outside (via stairs on the aft deck). At almost 20 metres in length, the flybridge is huge. Everything needed for warm days in the sun can be found upstairs: a full aluminium hardtop, two spacious dining/lounge areas, a kitchen/wet bar with refrigerators, ice maker and a barbeque, an area dedicated to sun beds, and a crane with a capacity of 1200 kg for launching the custom 6.40-metre carbon fibre Beachlander tender.
