Moonen Sell Their Built on Spec 97

Moonen Shipyards in the Netherlands has announced the sale of their fourth Moonen 97 steel-hulled displacement cruisers.

“We decided to build a fourth Moonen 97 on spec following the success of the first three,” says Emile Bilterijst, managing director of Moonen Shipyards. “Utilising our experiences with these projects we were confident that – even in the current market situation – the inherent Moonen quality would attract discerning clients. And now that this has proven to be the case, we are also delighted that the new owners are so enthusiastic about the boat that the only thing they will change is to add a new dining table and chairs.”  

He added, “This vote of confidence from experienced sailors speaks volumes about the tasteful interior we created in partnership with the designers Art-Line. And the sale of this semi-custom yacht also highlights the sheer diversity of superyachts available from us.

Currently in build at the yard is the fully custom 42-metre motoryacht Sofia, a 25.20-metre aluminium fast displacement vessel and an all-new Moonen 100 Explorer.

Two refit projects are currently at the yard
