Extending the deck on Etoile d’Azur
Work will soon get underway on the refit of the lovely Moonen 84 Etoile d’Azur. Launched in 2007, this 26.25m motoryacht is still in the hands of her original owner, who had already taken her to the Caribbean on her own bottom and now plans an extensive cruise of the Norwegian fjords and beyond.
Etoile d’Azur is the seventh of eight Moonen 84 displacement motoryachts that we launched between 2002 and 2008. After the refit she will go on a cruise to Scandinavia and other northern European locations. The owner also has some serious sailing plans for the future, including having Etoile d’Azurtransported to New Zealand and then cruising her all the way back to Europe.
One thing is certain: She will be ready for anything and everything once we have completed this refit, which includes a paint job and the installation of an electrical zero speed stabilisation system that was successfully deployed on My Way. This requires half the power of its hydraulic zero-speed alternative and, with no synchronisation required, offers considerable cost savings.
We will also be extending the flybridge aft. This will serve as a cover for the main deck aft area, creating even more shading for alfresco dining. In addition, the enhanced flybridge deck space will facilitate the owner’s desire to carry more watersport toys onboard, including scooters, in addition to the current tenders and jetski. Last but not least, various cosmetic changes will be made to Etoile d’Azur‘s interior and systems while the electrics will be updated where required.
