Moonen Shipyards has been building fine custom and semi-custom yachts for more than 25 years.
Based in the charming Dutch town of s-Hertogenbosch, Moonen has an established reputation for superb engineering and boasts an increasing number of large yachts in the works. The newest of these on the drawing board is the 82 ALU high-speed aluminum motoryacht.
The Moonen 82 Alu is designed to reach speeds of 25 knots with an exceptional range for a high-speed luxury yacht. It was the vision of Moonen to create an aluminum range of yachts called the Alu-series. “Our first high-speed yacht of this range was the Moonen 94 Alu NILO and the Moonen 82 Alu is part of a plan tomake a range of boats in various sizes,” comments Emile Bilterijst, Managing Director of Moonen Shipyards. ” The Moonen 82 Alu will combine a high degree of displacement comfort with an option to go 25 knots. As the owners are also looking for low fuel consumption, the hull needs to be very efficient at low speeds. The design for the hull is the subject of extensive research work, including lines models. A stringent testing program is also underway as the yard gears up to start building this exciting new project. Launching is scheduled for 2012.
