We Love the Zeelander Z44. Do You? | :00
The Zeelander 44 is a result of one man’s forward driving vision for an easy-operating quality build with innovation, head-turning yet classic design, extreme comfort, easy maintenance and luxury as primary considerations. After eight years of relentless testing, the Zeelander Z44 came to fruition in Holland thanks to the Dutch dream team of naval architect Frank Mulder and superyacht designer Cor D. Rover. After an exhaustive search, Zeelander serendipitously found an appropriate yard in April 2011 to produce the Z44, Tiara’s production facility in Holland, Michigan, where sea trials are undertaken on the Great Lakes. Here the company found diverse suppliers, a highly skilled workforce and a storied history of building great yachts (also with a Dutch past). Zeelander regards the Z44 as “European design with American quality and convenience.’
The Z44 has been elegantly transporting owners and their esteemed guests in the toniest of locations such as Ocean Reef, Greenwich, Connecticut and of course, Palm Beach. Her beautifully contoured lines and unique metallic colors demonstrate her aesthetic appeal. Ample seating on the main deck and wheelhouse allow for engaging entertaining while in port or at sea. Below decks, a surprising two cabins accommodate guests in a master and VIP, with a shared head. Head room in some areas is 6’8”!
With her twin standard Volvo Penta IPS 500s (375hp) with pod propulsion, the Zeelander Z44 will reach maximum speeds of 30 to 34 knots. With optional Volvo Penta IPS 600 (435hp), she’ll top 38 knots and cruise at 28 knots. Her cruise range is about 300 to 400 nm. Sound levels can run as low as 64 decibels at cruise speeds, even with the open bridge deck. Her draft is a mere 3’, and her beam a generous 13’2”.
