Holterman Expands Range of Xtreme Motoryachts
The Dutch shipyard Holterman is adding a new
60-footer (20m) to its Xtreme range of motoryachts.
Building work is well under way on the first
Xtreme-60, which will sit between the existing Xtreme-54 and
Construction of the hull is already
complete, with the focus now shifting to work on the
superstructure, with Bernd Weel's design comprising of complex shapes and
many hull openings. In
late spring, the two sections will be joined, and the boat will
move to Holterman's state-of-the-art shipyard in Meppel for
"When we arrived at Holterman with our project, we
had a really good connection," said the experienced owner behind
the first Xtreme-60, who is planning a maiden cruise to Norway.
"Then we saw the trawler windows on the larger Xtreme, and the
possibilities for the foredeck area and we loved the concept. The
interior volume of the boat is also enormous."
work on the Xtreme-60 owes a big debt to the larger Xtreme-78,
with its generous exterior space. The long aft deck is designed to
offer lounging in both shade and sun, and gives plenty of room for
entertaining. Wide side decks tucked behind deep, safe bulwarks
run forward to a stylish foredeck lounge. A drinks table and two
banks of seating in matt white sunbrella fabric make the perfect
spot for a sundowner, and there's also a large forward-facing sunpad. Cut-away bulwarks deliver a view of the shimmering water
below, and facilitate mooring procedures.
flexible beach club lies at the other end of the boat. When the
transom is closed, a deep, padded seat makes an excellent spot for
contemplating the yacht's wake. A hydraulically operated panel
opens to reveal a deep lazarette for storing water toys,
diving gear, bikes or any other equipment, and the bathing
platform can be lowered for easier access to the sea, and doubles
as a lift and storage point for a tender up to 5.5m LOA.
"The design DNA is very typical of Xtreme" said Weel. "We focused
on these sculptural surfaces creating reflections and shadows. For
the 60, we focused on long continuous lines that really creates
length. In the hull design, there's quite some tumblehome, which
makes it very elegant. All the glass is connected and wraps around
the saloon. There are only three main glass surfaces."
Conceived as an owner-operated yacht, the
Xtreme-60 is entirely given over to luxurious accommodation
designed by Kitty van der Kamp.
The main deck is a single, large
open-plan saloon, with wrap-around glazing and a broad connection
to the lounging and dining area on the aft deck. With a high-end
galley, indoor dining and comfy sofas, this is the heart of
Up a half-staircase forward lies the
semi-partitioned wheelhouse, with excellent visibility on all
sides, and sightlines aft. On this first model, the lower deck is
configured as a huge full-beam master cabin, with plenty of
storage, a desk and a vanity table. An opulently dimensioned ensuite shower room features separate his n' hers basins and a
large walk-in shower.
Further forward is a TV
lounge, lit with large hull windows and a skylight overhead - a
key request of this first owner. A guest
double lies in the bow, with access to a second bathroom, which
also doubles as a day head. Interior styling uses a range of
natural shades and materials to create a sophisticated,
"Within the Xtreme-60, there is a lot of
space in the hull," said van der Kamp. "This means there is
room for two very spacious sleeping cabins and two bathrooms. The
design is as open as possible, because the windows on the lower
deck run from front to back. In this way you bring the outside in.
And because a lot of light comes in, we opted for darker colours -
greys and taupes."
delivered by two Volvo Penta D6-300hp engines, which
will be capable of achieving an 8-knot cruising speed, or 11 knots
full throttle. Combined with 5,000 litres of fuel tankage, this
setup delivers a range of around 1,100
nautical miles. Comfort at sea and at anchor is guaranteed by an
advanced DMS stabilisation system.
When she is delivered in early 2024, the first
Xtreme-60 will be heading north, but the boat could equally be
adapted for warm water use, and there is always the option of
adding crew accommodation in the transom space or transforming the
lower lounge into a third cabin.
that different owners will want different things from their Xtreme
yacht," said Robbert Holterman. "As a small, experienced team, we
can customise designs quickly and efficiently. We take the time to
get to know our clients so that, by the time their dream boat is
launched, they are already members of the Holterman Yachts
