Moonen Yachts, are pleased to announce a new senior management team at their Dutch shipyard Moonen Yachts. Today’s announcement, which is effective immediately, is in line with the company’s strategy to grow the company and expand the number of yachts in build.
To strengthen the management and keep pace with the growth in production and the market, Nicky van Zon has been appointed Technical Director and Marianne Hendriks is in charge of the company as Managing Director.
The decision comes at a time, where the company grows on a global scale, and strong strategic leadership will be imperative. With two yachts currently in build and a third one on the drawing board, the yard is growing and has the ability and ambition to expand further. To put emphasis on the growth of the company, it is evident to maximise focus. Therefore, the new team, under guidance of Managing Director Marianne Hendriks, will see Marianne look after Sales, Marketing & Business Development, whilst Nicky van Zon will concentrate on Engineering, Projects and Production. “By putting every individual in their strongest position, the new management will be efficient, and decisive for the future”, comments Director and Shareholder Matthew Baxter. “Our business continues to be challenging and extremely promising. Since our start, Louise and I have invested a lot in building yachts on speculation, we are now starting to see amazing results as we notice a growing demand for semi-custom yachts with a short delivery time. Therefore, it is of utmost importance for Moonen Yachts to have a strong, energetic and integrated management team, and I believe that with this new team, we are well prepared to build on the current foundation and strengthen our unique worldwide position in the superyacht market.”
