New Moonen 100' Expedition Yacht

Moonen Shipyards in the Netherlands are making excellent progress with their new build the Moonen 100ft explorer, which is for a repeat client who wishes to explorer the world in style and comfort.

Vripack and Moonen Shipyards have teamed up in the design and engineering of this pocket explorer, with Vripack responsible for the design, naval architecture, engineering and interior design, while Moonen takes care of the detail and interior engineering. The hull and superstructure are built and the outfitting is scheduled to start in February of this year with a launching date in the spring of 2013.

The Moonen 100 will travel exceptionally long distances with her new owners so Vripack have designed her with high levels of fuel-efficiency that will increase her range, reduce costs and minimise the yachts environmental impact. This has been achieved by her efficient hull shape, bulbous bow and efficient propellers and engine that give her a range of 5,000nm at 10kts. She will have three large suites for the owner and guests giving extra comfort on the long trips and a gym in the lazarette for guests to keep in shape. If keeping in shape isn't for them then they can relax on the sundeck, on sun beds or in the jacuzzi.

For those of you planning to visit the Dusseldorf Boat Show (Boot Dusseldorf) that started yesterday running until the 29th of January, the model of the Moonen 100 will be on display at Vripack's booth, Hall 07A No. F24.
