About Intent

In 1969, two yachts were being built simultaneously at Royal Van Lent, demonstrating that the uses for yachts were becoming increasingly varied. The 36.81m Intent was primarily intended as a family boat. Particular attention was paid to the layout, furnishings and equipment to ensure a genuine homely feel in the lounge, owner's stateroom and four double-bunk cabins. In contrast, entertainment was an absolute priority at the 31.09m Prosit. Among the attributes requested by her owner, were a fishing cockpit complete with stainless steel fish and bait boxes (with their own running water), and two customized fishing chairs.
