Moonen Shipyards

Highest standards
"Some things are truly irreplaceable: Moonen standards of quality, design capability and workmanship have impressed connoisseurs since the early 1980s. Blending age-old skills with contemporary craftsmanship, more then 70 superior Moonen motoryachts of between 20 and 45 metres in length now grace the world’s oceans."says Emile Bilterijst, Managing Director of Moonen.

From one-off designs to successful semi-series concepts such as the Moonen 84, our yachts range in appearance from classic to contemporary. Each share common themes of safety, stability, reliability and silent comfort. Owning a Moonen means you join an exclusive club: Just three to four yachts are launched each year. Some 20,000m² of heated construction halls and open space in two locations and a skilled workforce of 80 are dedicated to your yachting pleasure.

Design and engineering
Whether building in steel or aluminium, our in-house designers are used to working with the world’s top naval architects and marine engineers. Teamwork is the hallmark of each and every successful build, and from the outset our engineers take all necessary steps to ensure a smooth construction process and later operation of the yacht. 

Moonen owners use their prized yacht extensively, and are glad they can return to the original craftsmen for some touching up or a complete refit. We also have the skills in place to rebuild a Moonen yacht to meet any new owners' taste. And the talents of the Moonen refit team have been provenon yachts from other prestigious yards too.

    Moonen Shipyards in the Netherlands has successfully completed the marriage of the high-tensile steel hull and aluminium superstructure of the Moonen Martinique. This milestone moment revealed for the first time the elegant curves and spacious design and layout of the second superyacht in Moonen’s Caribbean line.

    With a scheduled delivery date of spring 2018, excellent progress is being made on the build of the highly innovative 37m / 120ft / Expectations are already high after the successful delivery of the first Caribbean superyacht last year – the 30-metre Matica version called Bijoux.

    The new Martinique will share the Matica’s assets of a contemporary timeless design, excellent seakeeping and the overarching Caribbean line philosophy of maximising the pleasures of being in close proximity to the water. She will also be the first superyacht to feature a hull built of high-tensile steel, offering a wide range of benefits in terms of speed, fuel savings and comfort.

    The marriage of a hull and superstructure is an exciting time as the yard sees how the two giant structures fit together in practice. “There are perhaps three major moments in the build of a yacht after the laying of the keel,” says project manager Nicky van Zon. “The marriage of the hull and superstructure is the first as you get a visual impression of the true shape of a boat. The other two milestones are when the boat comes into the daylight for the first time and the launch itself. It is fascinating to see how much volume this 350 GT superyacht has now that she is taking shape, with her 290 square metres of luxury and crew area plus some 180 square metres of al fresco options.”

    The hull and part of the superstructure of the Martinique were already completed when the client withdrew from the build last year due to personal business reasons. This offers an exceptional opportunity for an owner to be on the water in considerable style and comfort in the spring of 2018. The Martinique is both family-friendly and good for charter should clients wish to make the most of these opportunities, offering five large cabins for up to 12 guests.

    A garage in the lazarette can store a 5.5-metre tender inside the hull and the option exists to have a crane installed on the bridge deck to store water toys. Efficiency in terms of maintenance and operational costs have been optimised, from the layout of the engine room to the user-friendliness of and ease of access to all the equipment. Interested parties are encouraged to contact Moonen directly or Simon Goldsworthy at Edmiston for more information.
