As a custom yard Moonen always prefers going with the flow of our clients rather than industry trends. The new Navarino concept is the latest example. Named after an island gateway to the Antarctic, this 47-metre world traveller combines the attributes of an ‘explorer-type’ motoryacht with an elegant profile appeals to all tastes.
Unveiled for the first time at the Monaco Yacht Show, the Moonen Navarino showcases the different ways Moonen owners can enjoy a modern and innovative world traveling superyacht. The concept can serve as a starting point for a client seeking a go-anywhere motoryacht or as inspiration to go in a completely different direction.
One of the key features is that the hull and main deck are a single entity, offering major benefits in terms of strength, stiffness and weight. The absence of side decks on the main deck creates a fabulous full-beam interior and the optimum use of space makes the Navarino one of the largest 500 GT superyachts available on the market today.
The aft deck lazarette is raised to the same level as the beach club, generating a considerable amount of space to enjoy the alfresco life and nature close to the water. Steps lead down into the giant main lounge, where a glass staircase and floor-to-ceiling windows add to the very open feeling and wide panoramic views.
The aft deck is also kept free of all obstructions by having the Navarino’s tenders and watersport toys stored on the foredeck. The wheelhouse is positioned aft at the most comfortable location when at sea for longer periods, with a seat in front for the owners to also experience the excellent views.
The Navarino offers a range of future-proof solutions to reduce environmental impact, including the use of sustainable materials and solar panels, exhaust gas cleaning, heat recovery of exhaust gases and hybrid propulsion. Lengthy expeditions are facilitated by excellent storage options and the capacity to carry 50,000 litres of fuel and 12,000 litres of fresh water.
An optimised hull design in combination with the stabilizers will ensure a comfortable performance underway and at anchor. With an owner’s suite on the main deck and four guest cabins below, a party of ten can set out on this world traveller with no limits to their discovery plans.
