First, Moonen’s reputation for unprecedented engineering and quality of mechanical systems and general construction. The sophistication of the ship’s systems is equivalent to that of a ship twice its size."Moonen YN200 hull launch and transportPhoto: Moonen YachtsThey continued: "There is no compromising any inch of the ship’s parts or materials whether it be a simple faucet to a major water filtration system. But more importantly, it’s the Moonen people whose pride shines through the manufacturing of their ships. Matthew and Louise Baxter, the new Moonen shipyard owners are tirelessly committed to continue the enduring legacy of the Mooned brand. We see them as our business and family partners in building our world-class ship which will stand the test of time. We are excited about this endeavour and a lifelong relationship with the Baxter’s and Moonen family”Moonen YN200 hull launch and transportPhoto: Moonen YachtsYN200 is to be powered by twin CAT C32 engines which provide her with a top speed of 16.5 knots and a cruising speed of 14 knots.
