Netherlands based Moonen Yachts are pleased to announce the sale of their 36.3 meter superyacht YN199, built on the successful Martinique platform. The yacht will be launched at the end of this summer and then delivered to her new owner in the Middle East a couple of weeks later.
YN199 features exterior design by renowned Dutch designer René van der Velden, naval architecture executed by Diana Yacht Design and interior design and styling by London based designers, Studio Indigo. A proven and successful partnership combination for the interior and exterior build.
Having been familiar with award-winning sister ship M/Y Brigadoon, which was only delivered in 2018, the new owner of YN199 came to Moonen Yachts after hearing about the two new builds based on the same Martinique platform. With YN199 and YN200 due for delivery end of summer 2020 and August 2021 respectively, the new owner was able to review both yachts and after careful consideration decided YN199 was the perfect choice.
When asked about what lead him to Moonen Yachts, the new owner said “I have always wanted a Moonen, but it was unclear when. It’s in fact a smaller size yacht, but can easily compare with the largest superyachts in the world quality and style wise. I absolutely adore the winter garden and love the spacious lay-out of the sundeck. This yacht gives me and my family so much room for relaxing and enjoying the water”. Having decided that now was the right time to buy a Moonen, the new owner said that YN199 was “all he wished for”.
Thanks to her sophisticated hull design, YN199 is a true world traveller. Beyond her good looks, she’s a luxury yacht offering exceptional comfort, safety and performance, all at the same time.
The spacious main deck is home to the large saloon with an adjacent formal dining area, a spacious and well equipped galley and an impressive master suite with a luxurious His and Hers bathroom. Moving outside, the aft deck offers a relaxing area to take in the beautiful ocean views, with stairs leading down to the swimming platform which provides easy access to the water.
With direct access to the bridge, the Captain’s cabin is situated on the Bridge Deck. To the aft, the winter garden, which was one of the main selling points for the new owner, offers a second indoor lounge area that can be closed off with sectional doors, or kept open to provide access to the shaded exterior deck, creating yet another indoor/outdoor entertaining area. Just above, the striking sun deck provides panoramic views and a spacious lounge area with bar, grill and a fantastic sound system for entertaining. Below deck is home to the crew and guests, where you’ll find four staterooms, all featuring private luxury bathrooms.
The engine room and tender garage are also situated on the lower deck. Martinique is powered by twin CAT C32 engines which provide her with a high-performing top speed of 16.5 knots and a comfortable cruising speed of 14.5 knots. Reflecting Moonen’s philosophy of building go-anywhere-yachts, YN199 has a range of 4,000nm at a cruising speed of 10 knots and is well suited for transatlantic crossings and long journeys.
Part of Moonen’s brand promise is that they guarantee expert attention and service whenever you need it. When you purchase a new build, you’ll enjoy world class in-house service, build flexibility, receive a 24 month warranty and work with experienced professionals where you can be involved in the design process as much or as little as you wish. Furthermore, throughout the life of your yacht, Moonen will perform maintenance and upgrades to extend its lifetime. And should you desire a refit down the track, they provide full refit capabilities all done in the on-site outfitting shed, to ensure the first class Dutch refit your Moonen deserves.
Moonen Yachts are thrilled that the second superyacht to be built on the successful Martinique platform is going to a wonderful family, who will enjoy all that she has to offer.
