Flirting with nature

It all starts with a brilliant idea

Even though fast-moving yachts are available in abundance, a beautifully streamlined yacht geared to the requirements of today’s critical consumers was not until now a feature of yacht building in the Netherlands. All the more reason for Van der Valk Maritiem, the spiritual father and builder of Sossego Yachts, to contact design specialists Mulder Design who produced the initial design for the Sossego line. Subsequently, it was engineered by Gebroeders van Enkhuizen, who focuses on designer yacht construction, which makes this triumvirate a logical and highly successful combination.

The essence of Sossego Yachts

Sossego Yachs is a line of fast sailing aluminium motor yachts in a range from 22 to 30 meters, entirely made in the Netherlands. The Dutch yacht building industry has an excellent reputation internationally and is up there amongst the world leaders. It is known for its high level of craftsmanship, innovation and exceptional expertise. The materials and equipment used in the yachts are of exceptionally high quality.

We build your dream

A Sossego Yacht is built in aluminium and has a extremely sound hull shape, which contributes to the comfortable sailing performance. Each Sossego Yacht is custom built, which means that you have an input with respect to the interior, style and type of wood. Logical, because it is your dream. Each Sossego Yacht consequently reflects its owner’s personal touch. You will be amazed by the possibilities that we can offer and we will deliver what we promise.

he is not fit to live on land.”

Sossego Sport 23

The Sossego Sport is not just a fantastic, fast motor yacht but a fun boat too. The Arnessen drive provides the right trim. Moreover, the perfect under water hull guarantees smooth sea going and speed. Two diesel engines of 1100 hp each ensure that speeds in excess of 40 knots can easily be achieved.


The yacht is very comfortable, has a pleasant seaway and is easy to manoeuvre. From a technical point of view the Sossego Sport 23 is a masterpiece and in combination with her looks this yacht is a real pleasure to sail with.

“My escape is just to get in a boat
and disappear on the water.”

Carl Hiaasen

Van der Valk Martiem

Van der Valk Maritiem started building the first Sossego yacht in 2005. This was done in close cooperation with Gebroeders van Enkhuizen, a household name within the Dutch yacht building industry. The first Sossego Sport 23 was introduced to the world at the 2005 Cannes Boat Show and turned out to be a particularly attractive streamlined yacht. 
This marked the start of a highly succesful partnership. Gebroeders van Enkhuizen yacht building originated from a yacht installation and service company established in 1992 in Makkum, in the province of Friesland. They have been building complete, superior quality motor and sailing yachts at their own wharf since 1999. Characteristic is the careful 
finishing of the yachts: the flawless finish of the exterior and ‘behind the scenes’ in the state of the art technical installations.
