About us

Vanton Yachts is a Dutch yard that designs and builds high-quality motoryachts of 40, 45 and 50 feet. The company was founded in 2021 by Ton van Rutten who has an architectural background and a talent for working with and optimising compact spaces, finding practical efficiencies and creating superior aesthetics. All this and more is reflected in the well-balanced and tasteful design of the Vanton 45 Cabin Cruiser.

To bring a yacht to market that truly meets the highest Dutch-quality standards, Vanton works closely with Studio Delta for the naval design and with Trimm Design for the technical details. Both partners have an excellent reputation in their field and will ensure a superb performance on the water.

The Vanton 45 Cabin Cruiser is now under development. We would like to keep you informed of the progress of this special yacht and other news from Vanton Yachts. Click here to stay up to date.

For adventurous frequent sailors

Vanton’s yachts are aimed at adventurous frequent sailors, looking to explore European coastal waters, lakes and rivers. People who often want to travel for longer periods of time and for whom exceptional comfort is key. This has been translated into a timeless motor yacht with plenty of interior space, luxury and safety. Into a manoeuvrable motor yacht that is easy and safe to steer. One with a low clearence of 2.75 m¹, to ensure very few obstacles are encountered on the way to your destination.

Thanks to the Quicksteel® dual purpose hull, specially designed for Vanton Yachts, speeds of up to 17 knots are achievable, depending on the motorisation. The design also guarantees efficient fuel consumption and with an eye to the future, all yachts are also available in a hybrid version.

Vanton yachts are designed specifically to ensure safe journeys over rivers and lakes and along the European coasts. Their characteristic deep axe bow handles the waves with ease, offering superior course stability and performance. Thanks to the Quicksteel® semi-displacement hull, specially designed for Vanton Yachts, speeds of up to 17 knots are achievable depending on the propulsion choice. The design also guarantees efficient fuel consumption and, with an eye to the future, is available in a hybrid version.

Without Rhine Permit

The 45 Cabin Cruiser is perfect for people who would like to cruise down the German Rhine in comfort without a Rhine permit as well as discover other European waters. And indeed, there are so many European rivers and lakes to explore. Moreover, the seaworthy Vanton 45 is also suitable for heading out into European coastal waters. Did you know that Europe has more places to berth than any other part of the world?

Comfort is nothing without space

At Vanton we’re convinced that space is synonymous with comfort. Everything has been done to make the interior as spacious as possible and create the feeling of a mini superyacht. The Vanton 45 features two roomy cabins; one for the owners and one for their guests or children.

Vanton yachts probably have the most interior space in their class. This is especially tangible in the salon where the 360-degree vista and abundance of natural light give an already large area a true sense of exclusivity. The steering position has excellent views too while the large glass panorama roof further enhances the feel of spaciousness indoors.

And this spaciousness continues throughout. Moving from the salon to the expansive foredeck you’ll find well-appointed sun beds and a seating area from where you can watch the world go by in style.


All Vanton yachts are built from high-quality steel and are crafted by hand. Steel construction enables the perfect opportunity to completely arrange the interior of your motor yacht to your own needs and to style it to your personal taste. Vanton’s yacht architect is happy to take you on a journey!
