In this series of articles, we take a look at the best brokerage deals currently on the market, as judged by our very own editors. What, Why, Where and Who will form the basis of the articles. This week, we have taken a closer look at the 38.16 metre superyacht, Northlander.
What is on offer?
Built by Moonen Yachts in 2009, the Moonen 124 Northlander is one the largest superyachts the Dutch shipyard has launched to date. Built to a design by by René van der Velden, the sleek Moonen 124 has a gracefully balanced bow and stern, eye-catching fashion plates and a low superstructure profile.
The Moonen 124 design has many features that are attractive to owners, captains, and crews, which make the yacht an ideal platform for charter as well as private use. She is the first Moonen yacht with a four-deck central atrium and spiral staircase. Her layout features a main-deck master suite forward. Below, two double and two twin guest staterooms centre on the stairs, with crew quarters well isolated forward.
Why do we think this is such a great deal?
Northlander features what Art-Line, her interior designers, calls "fusion" styling of western cherry joinery "spiced" by Oriental details and some unique decorative items as fine copper-mesh floating sculpture, and handsome pyramid-shaped panel sections that add visual strength compared to more usual flat-panel bulkheads.
Among her many features are a large sun deck with a Jacuzzi and wet bar, and a rescue boat stowed on the main deck forward. The yacht’s central feature, however, is the central staircase running to the sun deck. It is surrounded by a mirrored atrium, and topped by an opening skylight that gives access to the sun deck, and allows the yacht to be inundated with light.
Powered by 2 MTU 16V2000 M60 1072hp engines, she has a maximum speed of 13 knots, a cruising speed of 11 knots. She has a range of 5600.00 miles at 11 knots.
Where is she right now?
Northlander is located in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. She'll be attending the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.
