“Skillfully designed and unrivalled craftsmanship!”
The construction of YN203, the fifth Martinique to be built on this platform, is well underway and has a planned delivery date of March 2024, right in time for the Mediterranean yachting season.
As we continue to see new features with each evolution of the Moonen Martinique, designed by René van der Velden, YN203 boasts not only an extended sun deck, but also the swim platform has been extended by an additional 1.5 metres, bringing her steel hull to a total length of 37.8 metres. Additionally, YN203 will feature a fully integrated hydraulic swim platform, the “seascape”. This platform enables smooth entry into the water from the stern of the yacht and is ideal when planning to scuba dive.
Her generous accommodations, designed by the highly regarded team at Studio Indigo in London, will continue to be home to a total of 12 guests and seven crew. As her new owners have joined the project early in the piece, they will remain very involved in the interior design process and will maintain Moonen’s high level of customisation throughout the life of the project.
The Moonen Martinique has again proven to be a very well balanced design, offering 345GT, high volume and functionality, in combination with top Dutch quality and a short delivery time. A remarkable feature for her 37.8 metre hull is her top speed of 16.5 knots in combination with a 4000 nautical mile range at 10 knots.
An idyllic home away from home and a tranquil escape from everyday life, the Martinique provides her guests with three decks of harmonious indoor and outdoor living that combine seamlessly into spaces for relaxation, laughter and endless enjoyment.
“As a Real Estate Developer I am acutely aware of the time delays and cost escalations being experienced as a direct result of Covid, the Ukraine war and other economic factors. It is highly commendable that Moonen and Studio Indigo have been able to deliver our new yacht without any of the before-mentioned negative time or cost implications in this very difficult operating environment.”
