New Moonen 97: A Promising Series for the Luxury Charter Market

The brand-new Moonen 97 began sea trials on the North Sea and thus far the results are impressive. This is the fourth hull of the series, which has a four stateroom layout based on the popular Moonen 84, but with notable added volume.

To keep the profile low and maintain the series image, designer René van der Velden replaced the raised pilothouse of the 96 with a longer flying bridge and sun deck. With a handsome flared bow, gently sloping stern and graceful sheer, the Moonen 97 retains the essence of the brand.

Contemporary interiors juxtapose sensual curves against subtle geometrics. The pleasing result is serene and sophisticated. Spacious crew accommodation makes the Moonen 97 easily adapted to chartering.

The Moonen 97 was given an excellent performance rating by several leading yacht journalists who were on board during a sea trial. The yacht is now completely finished and available for delivery
