Moonen Sell First In New Caribbean Series

The new Moonen Caribbean series was introduced last month, May 2014 and it offers six different designs ranging from 26m (85ft) to 38m (125ft). They are all named after islands in the Caribbean, showing it could be a place where they could be spending quite a bit of their time when orders come and launching starts.

Martinique, the new project that's just been sold in the Caribbean series could be headed to the warm tropical waters when she is launched in 2016, with her construction is due to start shortly at the Moonen shipyard. She measures 36m (120ft) and is an innovation for the yachting industry as she will have a hull built of high tensile steel. Combined with Moonen's "enhanced length principle" (ELP) hull design, this will allow for an impressive turn of speed, low fuel consumption and high comfort levels for her owner.

The advantage of using high tensile steel is that the construction can be made significantly lighter than normal steel with the same strength, resulting in a lighter boat that retains the benefits of steel. This lighter construction allows for a higher speed than one would expect from a full displacement yacht of this size.

Her modern exterior design has sharp lines, vertical windows and a noticeable knuckle in the bow giving her a bold yet sleek appearance. The master suite is on the main deck and has amazing panoramic views out over the ocean. Other features will include a spacious country kitchen styled galley, a large saloon and outside space on the wheelhouse deck, a large swimming platform and an engine room designed for easy maintenance.
