2017 Van der Heijden 43 Hayden Vessel Overview


Built by Van der Heijden Yachts of the Netherlands, this 430 Hayden follows the rugged and robust Aluminum construction of her larger siblings as well as pedigree. Board FreedomLift 1, and you will note the expansive aft cockpit which is very rare in a boat of this size- totally built for entertaining with abundant seating, a large folding table, and a cockpit grill cabinet and wet bar with refrigerator.

Enter the salon with the galley on starboard, and a large settee on port for relaxing out of the elements, then head below to the living spaces and you will find two large staterooms, and two spacious heads- one with shower, and one "day" head without.

Economical performance is superb at 22.5 gallons per hour at the 430's 22 MPH Cruise. The weight and hull design gives you a smooth ride in not optimal sea state, and the lack of hull flex and internal noises in a seaway creates a totally different experience- it feels like you are aboard a much larger and commercial vessel.

Totally Converted to U.S. Specification, FreedomLift 1 was extensively upgraded when purchased by the FreedomLift Tender Company solely as a demonstration platform for their lift system which is why the boat shows little if any wear, and has such low hours. In the summers (as boat show season in Florida has ended) FreedomLift 1 has also spent summers out of the water awaiting the next season which has saved the boat from further wear and tear.

The Van der Heidjen Story Includes a Classic Touch of Yacht-Building Brilliance

Van der Heijden is a well-known brand in Europe but only a few of their semi-custom yachts have made their way into the American market since the company was founded in 1993. Characterized by tall freeboard and powerful lines, the Van der Heijden Hayden 430 FreedomLift 1 was extensively upgraded when she was purchased by the FreedomLift Tender Company as a demonstration platform for their boat lift systems.  

Because of her display-boat status, this 2017 43-foot Van der Heijden has seen only limited use in recent years which accounts for her like-new condition and low engine hours. She has also spent summers out of the water awaiting the next season-saving her from the normal wear and tear that comes with regular use. The two-stateroom layout of the Van Der Heijden Hayden 430 includes two ensuite heads (one with a separate stall shower), a full-service galley, and a huge U-shaped settee with an adjustable dining table to port. Large salon windows and generous headroom add to the impression of interior space, and rectangular hull windows make the master and guest staterooms airy and bright. The cockpit of FreedomLift 1 — enormous for a boat this size — features wraparound lounge seating, an electric grill, and a wet bar with sink and refrigerator. The pass-through window in the aft salon bulkhead is a thoughtful touch, and a power sunroof above the helm provides plenty of light and ventilation. Bow and stern thrusters make dockside handling easy.  

With her lightweight aluminum construction and an easily driven hull, the Van der Heijden Hayden 430 is a remarkably fuel-efficient yacht powered by upgraded 300hp engines. V-drive diesels burn a miserly 22.5 gallons of fuel per hour at 22 knots — that’s a mile per gallon in a 43-foot yacht! Food for thought considering today’s exorbitant fuel prices. 

HMY Yacht Sales is proud to present this 2017 43 Van der Heijden “FreedomLift 1”. Her immaculate condition will be a pleasant surprise for many yacht buyers looking for a vessel of exceptional quality, in like-new condition, and with features that will impress the most discerning yachtsman.
