New Mooen 100 Explorer Hull Arrives at Yard

Moonen Shipyards in the Netherlands has started outfitting the all-new Moonen 100 Explorer, developed together with Vripack Naval Architects. This exciting project is the fourth explorer-type superyacht built by Moonen after the 90’Commercial Break and 92’ Poseidon in 2003 and the award-winning 114’ My Issue in 2006. It reinforces the unique diversity of the yard that is currently building the fully custom 42 metres Sofia III complete with three-man sub and a new high speed 82 Alu, and is busy with several refits.


The construction of the Moonen 100 Explorer continues apace, with the exceptionally smooth lines of the robust exhibition-style vessel becoming clear for all to see. The yacht combines major fuel efficiencies with superior live aboard facilities for owners who are very involved in the build and looking forward to travelling the world in exceptional comfort after the launch in the spring of 2012.


“Over the past five decades, we have built up an impressive fleet of motoryachts that share the irreplaceable Mooen quality,” says managing director Emile Bilterijst. “The fact that we are able to offer entirely distinctive types of motoryachts such as explorer, high-speed, displacement and fully custom built is exceptional in today’s market. And the way we create these superyachts for such a diverse group of owners in terms of nationality, age and sailing experience further reinforces our ability to offer premium Dutch quality at genuinely competitive prices.”


Moonen provide diversity in terms of size too with the timeless elegance of a Moonen available in lengths between 65 and 150 feet (20 to 45 metres).  “Cross-fertilisation is also possible between these categories,” adds Bilterijst.  “For instance, clients could opt for a high speed custom yacht.  No other yard of Moonen’s pedigree offers such as comprehensive variety of choice – and backs it up with past experience and current orders.”
