As a young man he purchased his first boat, an 11-metre steel cruiser from De Ruiter Shipyard, while working for his father’s painting company. Eventually, he switched to a career in real estate and offered De Ruiter a plot to expand their shipyard in ’s-Hertogenbosch, the Netherlands. Through this relationship, Moonen eventually had the opportunity to take over the yard and renamed it Moonen Shipyards where he combined his skills as an entrepreneur with his love of yachts.
