Silence, Luxury and Functionality: Introducing the New Zeelander 5

Introducing the new Zeelander 5

Zeelander revealed her breathtaking new 48′ motor yacht project. Like her big sister, the Z72, the Zeelander 5 is even more voluptuous than her predecessors. Zeelander’s DNA is all there, but with curvier lines and a sportier S-shaped shearline. In-house styling and the combined experience of the entire Zeelander team make the new Zeelander 5 a work of art.

Attention to silence and functionality

It’s not just about the looks, however. The Zeelander 5 also has improved functionality. Side-boarding doors and a passarelle allow easy entry. A full walkaround cockpit gives access to the iconic Zeelander swim platform. And most importantly, the Zeelander 5 can be opened up for the summer months with a sunroof and retractable sliding window aft, or sealed off for cool winter cruises.


The Zeelander yard has one of the best names in the business when it comes to sound and vibration proofing. Running at full throttle, the boat makes an easy 45 knots, but all you’ll hear is the sound of the wake astern. Riding at anchor, the generator and aircon produce just 46dB – literally whisper quiet.

Custom vision

Choice is integral to the philosophy at Zeelander. Four carefully curated moodboards offer a range of luxurious styles and finishes to perfectly match an owner’s personality. They make expert use of the finest fabrics, leathers and woods for a truly noble finish. The experienced Zeelander team will work with an owner’s vision to deliver a boat that is perfectly designed around desire, and always a thing of timeless luxury.

Effortless power

Flick the backrests over to create twin pilot seats for effortless control of the yacht’s systems. You’ll never be short of power, with options including twin or triple Volvo Penta IPS 500 or 650 pods, for a maximum of 1,440hp. It makes for a blistering ride, certainly, but Volvo’s Assisted Docking technology also makes light of close-quarters maneuvering.
