Zeelander's classic lines exude style and the flawless profile changes with every angle and change in light. The styling is by Cor D Rover whose unique ability to bring the freshest yet most timeless design ensures that the Zeelander turns heads wherever she cruises.

The smooth curves and signature transom remind one of the graceful, commuter boats with more than a passing nod at the lobster tradition and the gentleman's launch of the golden era of yachting.

From all angles recognizable, from no two angles the same...

She is a smooth flowing vessel, highlighted with rich wood finishes, gold-sprinkled paint, stainless steel and sensuous leathers. From the bow, with sculpted anchor arrangement and mirror-finish stainless housing LED headlights, following her perfect sheer-line, capped with hand-crafted mahogany, and finally sweeping aft, the Zeelander Z44 has not a single, hard line.

The Z44's muscular body exudes power and elegance by cleverly combining timeless appearance with contemporary design from the imperial plumb bow to the classic tumblehome of her beautifully rounded transom. By concentrating on the recreational features - her forward located pilothouse allows excellent, uninterrupted visibility whether navigating or dining and allows the masterpiece of a protected sunbathing area aft.

Blistering performance... velvet ride.

The Z44's blistering performance and unique 'velvet' ride is achieved through the hull design of acknowledged master Naval Architect Frank Mulder, whose reputation is established with such legendary high speed yachts such as 'Octopussy," "Moonraker" and "The World is not Enough."

Zeelander Z44 Transom Step

The hull is the result of an uncompromising bridg for not only stiffness at speed but also afford the Z44 her extraordinary sea-keeping abilities. The hull, which uses longitudinal stringers and carbon and Kevlar reinforcements in a core-infused e-glass resin hull, is constructed by hand in a special Zeelander-owned high-tech lamination factory.

Zeelander chose Volvo IPS 600 drives for their common-rail engines and patented IPS drive system. The engines are known for their power, fuel-efficiency (in comparison to conventional drive systems) and cutting edge performance in speed and acceleration as well as for their unrivalled maneuvering abilities. These engines offer the perfect combination of power with outstanding combustion efficiency.

Zeelander Z44 Performance

Renowned noise cancelling engineer, Sjaak Van Cappellen, has been instrumental in controlling every installation of furniture and machinery mounting and has resulted in a yacht of exceptionally low sound levels never before achieved on a yacht in this class - in port or at sea. Van Cappellen is well known for perfecting the "Art of Silence," which in the designing of the Z44 means no noise, no vibration.


The Z44's mirror-like finish of the paintwork is the result of thousands of hours of personal attention by Zeelander craftsmen. Each Z44 hull receives seven individual layers of paint and lacquer, with hand finishing between each layer by 6 craftsmen using long-boards. The process involves a clever blend of the automotive and aeronautic products to resist abrasion and UV damage. The result is then polished to create a luster that is unmatched in the yachting industry.

Through a 'custom' option, Owners and Collectors can choose to entirely customize their Z44, without compromising the quality or attention to detail that underwrites this work of art. Although owners do far have an unlimited choice of colors, a special selection of paint colors for the hull, with complementary superstructure has been created.

Zeelander's creators have strived endlessly to test and perfect every area of the yacht. When satisfied with the result they re-addressed the quality by ensuring the highest levels of craftmanship at every level. A multi-skilled team well versed in traditional skills and using the most advanced and cutting edge technology create an interior that is unsurpassed in terms of quality and attention to detail.

Zeelander's designers work with only the finest natural materials; wood veneers and leathers, silks, wools, precious metals all of which are specially selected for the harsh marine environment yet without compromising quality.

Every teak plank is personally selected and hand-laid on the decks before being vacuum-bedded in the deliberate single-length Zeelander style, emphasizing the almost perfect curves and sheer of her hull and superstructure. Interior veneers are selected for the grain and color and opened out into large sheets to ensure the grains are continuous throughout the interior.

Each piece of furniture is individually crafted before being fitted into the yacht. It is then removed and veneered, before going to environmental paint shops for the final layers of lacquer, showcasing the beauty of the wood.


The Z44 is conceived as the 'one yacht' everyone aspires to; be it the Owner of a fast commuter boat or a 120m world-class mega yacht.

At maneuvering speeds, the joystick affords unparalleled control so anyone who loves the thrill of "parking" their yacht can do so with ease and flair.
