Storytelling

Moonen Shipyards

Johan Dubbelman - CEO at Moonen Shipyards: "From the moment I joined Moonen in 2002 I knew I’d become part of something special. I was instantly struck by the family atmosphere at the yard, a sense that this was a place where people join because they love being part of a team which creates amazing motoryachts. As a qualified naval architect, I understood the technical aspects that go into ensuring each and every Moonen is exceptionally comfortable. But I really had to sail on board one to appreciate just how quiet and smooth the ride is. That was and remains a revelation each and every time.

The years I spent on purchasing & project management at Moonen also gave me a unique insight into what Dutch quality really means on a superyacht. A period as sales manager then allowed me to spend more time with clients, often repeat owners who needed little convincing of why a Moonen is among the best yards in the world for gentlemen’s yachts and go-anywhere vessels from 30 to 50 metres in length 

Now, as CEO of Moonen, it is a privilege to see the decades of experience at this yard being successfully translated into refreshing future-proof ideas. Our Caribbean line of semi-custom motoryachts showcases the characteristic Moonen attributes in terms of comfort at sea, low fuel consumption, reliability, low operational costs and respected Dutch heritage. Then there is the Navarino concept, a 47-metre global traveller which combines the features of an ‘explorer-type’ motoryacht with an elegant profile.

Whatever your tastes, wherever you like to cruise, Moonen can provide you with custom solutions. Tell us your story and let’s work together on taking it to the next level."
