NICKY VAN ZON
“The Sailing Expert”
Nicky joined Moonen Yachts in 2008 as Assistant Project Manager after finishing his naval architectural studies. He was promoted to Project Manager in 2014, followed by a more recent 2020 promotion to his current position of Technical Director.
Involved in all Moonen projects that were built in the last decade, Nicky acquired an invaluable technical knowledge and expertise in managing projects effectively from concept through to completion.
During his childhood you could always find him on the water sailing dinghies or in his father’s workshop busy with maintenance, refits or building a new boat himself. Nowadays, Nicky is an enthusiastic competition sailor in several classes including J22, Dragon and Soling. He also enjoys sailing for leisure with friends on the Dutch waters and has completed an ocean crossing from Africa to Brazil.
Did you know: Nicky owns five pairs of wooden clogs and can often be seen wearing them on special occasions!
