Moonen Shipyards has announced completion of the joining of the high-tensile steel hull and aluminium superstructure of its 37m yacht.
The new Martinique is the second in its Caribbean line, Martinique, and is due to be delivered in Spring 2018. She will be the first yacht to feature a hull built of high-tensile steel, offering a wide range of benefits in terms of fuel economy, speed, and comfort levels.
Part of the superstructure, and hull were already completed, when the original client withdrew from the build last year due to personal business reasons.
Nicky van Zon, project manager at Moonen, said “There are perhaps three major moments in the build of a yacht after the laying of the keel. The marriage of the hull and superstructure is the first as you get a visual impression of the true shape of a boat.
“The other two milestones are when the boat comes into the daylight for the first time and the launch itself. It is fascinating to see how much volume this 350 GT superyacht has now that she is taking shape, with her 290 square metres of luxury.”
A garage in the lazarette can store a 5.5m tender inside the hull, with the option to have a crane installed on the bridge deck to store water toys.
