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."

    Dutch superyacht builder Moonen Yachts in ‘s-Hertogenbosch, is under new ownership. An Australian couple, Matthew and Louise Baxter are the new owners of the shipyard. Matthew, of Scottish origin, is a successful Australian businessman and entrepreneur, who in 1972  established the A M Group, a privately  owned worldwide group of manufacturing companies of which he is executive chairman.

    Louise and Matthew first discovered Moonen Yachts whilst sailing on Pittwater harbour in Sydney where they came across the beautiful Moonen yacht, Aurora (Moonen 84). This lead to their involvement with Moonen, a midsized Dutch pedigree shipyard with a dedicated and highly skilled team.

    In Matthew’s words “It is a privilege to own a yard like Moonen. The brand has an impeccable pedigree, the yachts are true Dutch quality and the team is young, reliable, talented, and very loyal to the company. These characteristics are fundamental for success. I realise that the yard has to re-energise, but we are well prepared with a strong strategic plan and a strong balance sheet, I see a promising future ahead.”

    The shipyard is very honoured and excited with Mr & Mrs. Baxter as their new owners. “We have trust in these new investors and have faith that they will establish a strong future for Moonen Yachts” says Johan Dubbelman, Moonen’s CEO. The 30 to 50 meter market is solid for well-built designs, and our plans are to increase production. Currently we have one, award winning, 36-meter Martinique in build, she’s 50% ready. The focus is to have her on display at the Monaco Yacht Show 2020.

    Our aim is to scale up production efficiently and start two new build projects in the upcoming 6 months. Following on with the current build we will start a second 36 metre and a 44 metre, both new and future proof timeless Moonen yachts with interiors designed by the award winning renowned design houses, like Studio Indigo. By building on speculation, delivery times will be shorter and customisation still possible, which is an absolute advantage for our future clients.”

    The majority of the staff and workforce, which are very important to Moonen, have been reappointed and are enthusiastic to be part of this strong new leadership. To assure continuous high-end quality, Moonen Yachts will reinforce the cooperation with long-term strategic partners and subcontractors.
