About Moonen Shipyards B.V.
Founded in 1981, Moonen is one of those iconic Dutch shipyards with a family atmosphere and an ability to create amazing custom motoryachts. Owners and captains alike will tell you that Moonen is one of the best yards in the world for gentlemen’s yachts and go-anywhere vessels from 25 to 55 metres in length. Each Moonen is exceptionally comfortable in all conditions, offering a degree of quietness that very few can match.
Moonen’s decades of experience has been translated into refreshing future-proof ideas. In addition to famous bespoke one-off projects such as Sofia (yes, the one with the yellow submarine!), its Caribbean line of motoryachts showcases the characteristic Moonen attributes in terms of 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.
Moonen is also a favourite yard for clients seeking a first-class Dutch vessel of a size that does not require a large number of crew. A reliable superyacht that they can take out with their friends and go diving or have a real family holiday unhampered by a lack of marina facilities or shallow harbours. Many of these clients become informal ambassadors for the Moonen brand by inviting guests on board and allowing them to experience the difference.
