Update on the Moonen 100' Explorer
Moonen Shipyards in the Netherlands is making excellent progress with the construction of a long distance explorer-type yacht. The all-new Vripack designed Moonen 100 is a robust expedition-style vessel that also benefits from exceptionally smooth lines. Combining major fuel efficiencies with comprehensive live aboard facilities, so this compact Explorer will allow her owners – who are extensively involved in the build - to truly travel the world in exceptional comfort.
Because the Moonen 100 will travel exceptionally long distances, Vripack Naval Architects designed her with high levels of fuel-efficiency that increase the range, reduce costs and minimize the yacht’s environmental impact. This has been achieved by an efficient hull shape, bulbous bow, sophisticated weight-saving measures, and highly efficient propellers and engines giving her a range of 5,000 Nm at 10 knots. Comfort is also given a priority, with low noise and vibration levels, an exceptional sea-keeping performance and impressive stability at anchor.
The model of the new Moonen 100 will be on display during BOOT Düsseldorf at our booth located in the heart of the Dutch pavilion, Hall 07A number F24. The hull and superstructure are in-build and outfitting is scheduled to start in February. The yacht is slated for launching in the spring of 2013.
