Netherlands based Moonen Yachts are pleased to announce the sale of their 36.3 meter Moonen Martinique, YN200. This marks the second sale of the year for Moonen Yachts and the third superyacht to be built on the Martinique platform.

Building on the success of her predecessors, YN200 incorporates exterior design by Dutch designer René van der Velden, naval architecture by Diana Yacht Design and interior design and styling by London based Studio Indigo.

The marriage of YN200’s hull and superstructure will take place on the 9th of October 2020 and she will be delivered to her new owners in the USA in November 2021. As the new owners stepped in early in the process, there was room for change. At the owner’s wish, YN200 will have an extended sun deck, providing her owners with an extra 2.5 metres of space onboard and a beautiful Jacuzzi to relax in.

Already current members of the Moonen Family, YN200’s owners have enjoyed their beautiful Moonen 84 for the past three years and are well acquainted with the Moonen brand.

“There were several compelling reasons to remain with the Moonen Family. First, Moonen’s reputation for unprecedented engineering and quality of mechanical systems and general construction. The sophistication of the ship’s systems are equivalent to that of a ship twice its size and there is no compromise made on any inch of the ship’s parts or materials, whether it be a simple faucet to a major water filtration system. But more importantly, it’s the Moonen team members whose pride shines through in the manufacturing of their ships. Matthew and Louise Baxter, the new Moonen shipyard owners are tirelessly committed to continue the enduring legacy of the Moonen brand. We see them as our business and family partners in building our world-class ship which will stand the test of time. We are excited about this endeavor and a lifelong relationship with the Baxter’s and the Moonen family”

In total, the generous interior of Moonen YN200 which will feature teak wood throughout, will accommodate 12 guests in 4 staterooms and one owners suite, as well as 7 crew in 4 cabins, including the Captain’s cabin located on the Bridge deck with direct access to the Bridge.

Built from high tensile steel and measuring a length of 36.3 metres (119ft), YN200 is powered by twin CAT C32 engines providing her with a high-performing top speed of 16.5 knots, a cruising speed of 14 knots and a transatlantic range of 4000nm at 10 knots. With a maximum beam of 8 metres, a draught of 2.1 metres and a volume of 334 GT, not only does she epitomise fantastic performance, perfect stability and exceedingly low noise and vibration levels, she can also travel the world and comfortably motor into almost any port. 

Part of Moonen’s brand promise is that they guarantee expert attention and service whenever you need it. 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.

Moonen Yachts are thrilled that the new owners of YN200 have chosen them once again and continue to place their trust in the expertise of the shipyard and all team members involved. We look forward to building on the already strong  relationship we have and are proud to have them in our Moonen family.
