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 has officially started the construction of its latest superyacht, the 36.3-metre YN199. The keel laying ceremony took place on 14th December 2018.

    YN199’s Project Manager, Nicky van Zon, attended the keel laying in December and is looking forward to start with this beautiful project over the next year. “The Moonen team along with the Lloyds surveyors were all on site to celebrate this significant moment. We will combine the hull and superstructure in July at the Moonen shipyard in ‘s-Hertogenbosch, which is a moment I’m particularly looking forward to. It’s always a special moment to see the design coming to life.”

    AVAILABLE SPRING 2020
    Moonen YN199 is the second yacht to be built on the 36-metre Martinique platform. She features exterior design by renowned Dutch designer, René van der Velden, with naval architecture executed in cooperation between René van der Velden and Diana Yacht Design. London based Studio Indigo is responsible for her interior design. Available for sale and scheduled for delivery early spring 2020, interior styling and decoration will be a close collaboration between YN199’s future owners and Studio Indigo.

    PERSONALISED INTERIOR DESIGN
    The first hull in the Martinique line was delivered in summer 2018 to industry-wide acclaim. Named Brigadoon, she features a sophisticated, chic and comfortable interior from the drawing boards of Nauta Design and interior styling by Studio Indigo. The collaboration was a resounding success, prompting Moonen to invite Studio Indigo to create a new interior concept for Brigadoon’s sister ship in line with the revitalised Moonen brand and vision. This interior concept remains flexible to allow prospective owners to customise the interior design to personal style and taste. A timeless and well thought out interior layout maximises the feeling of space and light on board. Special consideration has been given to maximising internal areas to enhance a sense of space and ease of movement, making YN199 feel
    significantly larger than her length suggests.
