Our story

“Our craftsmen are without a doubt our greatest asset”


In 2019, Moonen yachts came under new ownership, providing the shipyard with a solid, stable foundation to pave the way for long term success.

Passionate about yachts and sailing, Matthew and Louise Baxter have owned many successful businesses over the years and have successfully brought Moonen Yachts back to a strong position within the market. This success comes from lifelong expertise and knowledge in business.

Confident and proud of their company, team and the premium yachts they build.

“We offer a two-year unconditional warranty anywhere in the world. No other company in this industry does that. We are truly passionate about this company and believe that the brand deserves to be recognised as world class.”

Always looking to the future, Matthew and Louise Baxter have a clear vision for Moonen Yachts – to extend our leading position of premium semi-custom superyachts of 34 to 50 metres.


For more than 40 years Moonen Yachts have been dedicating themselves to the unique craft of building luxury superyachts. Based in the Netherlands, our rich heritage and original vision has been maintained throughout the years by our close-knit team of in-house professionals and unwavering passion for what we do.

As enthusiasts and perfectionists, going the extra mile is, simply put – who we are. Each client is uniquely nurtured throughout the process of creating a superyacht; a work of art that perfectly reflects your personal style. 

The passion of our team and clients will always be the driving force behind our yachts’ exceptional quality and beauty. Focusing on superyachts between 34 and 50 metres means we intrinsically know our craft and our team is acutely aware of how to enhance your onboard experience at every stage.

While our yard features first-class facilities and equipment, it is our people who ultimately make the greatest difference. We work with passionate craftsmen who have decades of experience and who are dedicated to delivering the best possible results for our clients. In addition to this, we are proudly committed to an organisational structure that keeps our management team closely involved in every aspect of our operations.

Creating your superyacht is an exciting process and one that requires many personal choices. From the drawing board to the open seas, we will guide you through every strategic choice and keep you well informed about what is achievable along the way. This is our passion, it is what we are excited to do every day and we are excited to be on this journey with you.
