  1. A long view from the stern emphasizes the length and breadth of her open space on the Upper deck, with its broad overhead protection. Stylish, yet conservative, her profile affirms a well-calculated, sculptured endowment, executed by talented modelmakers. It will prove to be the startling debut of striking innovations yet to come.
  2. Stepping one deck down, Northlander's main aft deck is weather-protected by the upper deck overhang, but spaciously airy, offering a most excellent venue for party time, or relaxation in the sea breeze. Over teak decking, centered, a huge party table awaits before a built-in weatherproof upholstered seating couch. Through gate-doors at each beam, stairs lead directly down to the swim platform.
  3. Entering the salon from the aft deck offers an exciting preview of great expectations to come as the yacht’s creators let their imaginations proliferate.
  4. The M-124’s ultra-modern salon shows off unrestrained imagination for the interior designers’ artistic expression, with soaring half-circles in immaculate white, top to bottom, deck to overhead, set off against rich cherrywood/cinnamon paneling, with an opposing dash of black accents in woven bucket chairs.
  5. A forward view of the salon’s room divider again punctuates designer’s imagination with an ostentatious display of modeled, wood-pyramid-shaped paneling. A 63” plasma flat-screen HD system is at center, while 20cm ceiling speakers flood the area with surround sound. There is also an LCD touch screen, WiFi station, plus multi PC bluetooth keyboards with mouse. A centrally installed Crestron entertainment system with Kaleidescope movie and music server, w/video, is available in every area and stateroom.
  6. On the other side of the divider, forward, the Dining room also displays imaginative design, still observing the circular pattern prototype with a cherrywood tabletop. Black wrought iron woven chairs are mixed in for contrast.
  7. An alternate view of the dining area shows off the cherry/wood pattern and semi-circular booth seating in overstuffed leather. It's rather unusual to see the main foyer centered off the dining area, but once you see the foyer, you'll see why it was given center stage.
  8. As noted in the previous dining photo, shown here is the foyer’s centrally located ornate, flighty, sculpted & brushed stainless staircase with a copper lamme insert; winding in circles to the upper deck and onward to the lower level. Truly a study in modern art and a testament to Moonen's diversified, creative skills.
  9. Arriving at the M-124’s fully-fortified galley, at central just forward of the dining salon and serving all deck dining areas by dumbwaiter, she continues her cherry/cinnamon theme, displaying a plethora of equipment including two Miele stoves, dishwashers, coffee machine, exhaust hood, twin washing machines. To boot, an ISE 78 insinkerator; a Pakmaster trash compacter, as well as two Sub-Zero fridge-freezers, with two more in the lazarette. There’s even... (ahem)... a dish heater.
  10. In M-124’s Master Stateroom, located on the main deck, full beam width includes her king-size berth, centered and highlighted by ornate, fabric covered panels lining the semi-circular design. Handsomely decorated in soft shades of cinnamon/cherry with sculptured pyramid triangles, the ship's design theme continues. The owner’s suite sports a 40” LCD flatscreen HD entertainment hook-up and ceiling speakers. Notice the wicker-based bed pedestal that picks up all the colors in the room.
  11. In a rather unusual addition to a multi-million $ luxury yacht, M-124 reveals in her master suite along one windowed beam, a large, specially designed hammock, slung next to the berth. One can only guess: Perhaps reminiscent of past cruises as an Able-Bodied Seaman? Yo! Sailor, Man your station!
  12. In a further modern, individual design departure, Moonen’s 124 fashions her Master bath in a diamond-shaped area centered cross-wise at the bow, underneath windows overlooking the foredeck. The special pear-shaped bathtub is covered in a mosaic of white tile, while novel his-hers wash basins and mirrors flank each side.
  13. Her VIP staterooms also follow the color and fabric patterns, with triangulated squares; velvet covered in off-white grey ceilings. All staterooms sport ceiling speakers as well as LCD touchscreen panels for individual entertainment programming.
  14. Each VIP bath is also decorated in the modern mode, featuring large round mirrors, new age basin designs, with identical facilities. Warm cherry woodwork and clear glass shower doors are standard as well. Notice the shower walls, lined in mixed elements of white tile, wood grain and marble. The perimeter of the shower floor is an infinity drain.
  15. Guest double staterooms feature separate single berths with cleverly fashioned bed tables, and a single shower. Guest cabins include one guest and two VIPs.
  16. Northlander's crew are also well taken care of, with well padded booth seating at a dining table that doubles as a storage cabinet. Full crew complement includes 3 crew cabins: one double and two twins.
  17. The Captain’s cabin is below on the lower deck, forward. It offers a double berth as well as a private head/shower. A flat screen is centered at the base of the bed and small workstation opposes.
  18. Crew quarters include a berth with staggered over/under singles, hanging storage locker and private head/shower.
  19. The Captain/Crew bath is also private with a large vanity mirror, countertop and wash basin; as well as ample storage for toiletry and towels.
  20. Just inside the M-124’s stern garage, where to the left we see its Castoldi 18’ tender, ready to launch. The tender’s keel dovetails neatly into the cleft above the stairway, and its cradle in the foreground. No space is left underutilized, with plastic storage bins lining the base of the tender cradle and handrails securely stowed alongside.
