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.
