v8 M.A.N 1300hp


A pair of MAN V8-1300s have been diligently selected to be the workhorse of the Valder Yacht. All that power is efficiently delivered via the ZF 665V gearbox to a pair of CJR 5 Bladed propellers. These propellorss are a bespoke high-speed design machined to Class S which is described as “Very High Accuracy”.

Carbon fibre has a strength-to-weight ratio about twice that of the S-glass used in most boats. Carbon fibres have other advantages, including high stiffness, high tensile strength, low weight, high chemical resistance, high-temperature tolerance and low thermal expansion.

High performance hull

Weight is critical with any high-performance hull, so the 20m is built entirely from foam-cored, carbon fibre skinned panels to achieve the minimum weight possible and allow for a luxury fit-out and specification.Offered in a range of sizes from 18m to 24m, Valder Yachts are available in either a sports sedan or flybridge style. There is the option of adding a tuna tower or a helipad loading zone.

Rough Water performance

Catamarans are superior in every way in rough seas, and the Valder Yacht 20 is no exception. Thanks to the hull design and foil technology, the Carbon Cat 20 offers a superior ride at cruising and top-end speeds. Valder Yachts have a slower deceleration than a conventional monohull, reduced wave impact and enhanced static stability.


One of the inherent design benefits of a power catamaran is the much larger space envelope that the designer has to work within, compared to a similar length monohull. With the Valder Yachts, designer Roger Hill has maximised every level of the interior to ensure that each place can benefit from all available space. Every aspect of the layout, from the cockpit to the master stateroom, has been carefully conceived In the quest for uncompromising perfection.

World class technology

Valder Yachts are designed to be fast, very fast, and while most motor yacht builders target the 'magic 30 knots, we have taken a massive leap to 50 knots. But it is not all just about speed. To achieve that, you need fuel efficiencies and handling that we give you with the foil assisted Valder Yacht.

world's leading power cat designers

Foiled for Efficiency & speed

As part of optimising the top speed and the economy at lower cruising speeds, Valder Yachts are fitted with a lifting foil between the hulls. The carbon foil generates approx. 20 tonnes of lift at the optimum cruising speed, and the trim and ride stability is looked after by a Humphree interceptor ride control system mounted on each transom.

World class Power

Valder Yachts are all about advanced technologies, cutting edge design by one of the world's leading power cat designers and exceptional build quality from one of New Zealand's most respected boat builders. Based on a performance orientated hull form with a bespoke interior that can be presented to suit your lifestyle, each Valder Yacht is an expression of your dreams. Elegance and sophistication coupled with performance and engineering, but the Valder Yachts is at the forefront of power catamaran design.
