New sales manager for Moonen Shipyards


Moonen Shipyards has announced that Sales Manager, Gelein Melis, has left the shipyard after being part of the Moonen team for many years. In 2002 Gelein started as Sales Manager for new luxury yacht sales. During this time, he helped Moonen owners to re-sell their yachts or worked closely with them in taking their yachts as a part exchange for new build.

In 2007 he started as Sales Director of the newly established division Moonen Brokerage, to focus on resale of Moonen yachts and Moonen trade-ins.

Early 2009 Gelein decided to alter his course and leave the Moonen team. Since June 2009 Robert Drontmann has taken over Geleins position. Robert may be new to Moonen, but he is very experienced in the yachting industry. For nine years he has been at the main office of de Valk International Yachtbrokers, a top International firm, where he handled the resale of large luxury yachts.

Moonen wishes Gelein all the best for the future and welcomes Robert to the Moonen team.
