Boat Unbelievable

This is a magnificent and elegant ValkVlet 12.30, produced entirely in the Valk Yachts shipyard.

In 1964 Valk Yachts introduced the ValkVlet based on their own design and in collaboration with Th. Gillissen. Among skippers, this received a reputation as the "Rolls Royce" among Dutch cruising boats.

Building on this success, in the decades that followed, the company built several models, ranging in length from 8.50 to 14.30 metres.

Beautifully finished in mahogany and cherry wood inside, the Unbelievable has two double cabins, a galley with dining area and a large lounge, with a command point and a set of glass windows that allows 360º visibility.

The exterior, all in teak, has a large space at the bow and a high, protected area at the stern, which accommodates a second command post.

This boat is ideal for quiet and elegant trips, for groups of two to twelve people, for short stays or several days.

    “Muito bom! ” Subir o Rio Douro de barco foi muuuuito legal!! Conhecer a cultura da região com as verdadeiras aulas de história tornaram a navegação ainda mais prazerosa. Adoramos! Hector, 24 jul 2022

    “Simplesmente excelente!” Fiz o cruzeiro com a minha família e adorei! Tivemos direito a degustação de produtos regionais e vinhos a bordo e estava tudo delicioso! A melhor parte foi os mergulhos dados no rio, com uma paisagem de corta a respiração! Recomendo muito, é uma forma diferente de conhecer o Douro! Nádia, 22 jul 2021
