MOONEN SHIPYARDS LAUNCHES FIRST EXPLORER - the 114' "My Issue” Largest-displacement Moonen yacht is ice-classed... Moonen Shipyards, now celebrating 25 years of building fine “pocket superyachts,” has launched its largest-displacement yacht ever, the 290-ton Explorer 114' "My Issue". Built for repeat clients, this first edition of the all-new Moonen “Explorer Series” is a unique long-range research-type cruising yacht designed by René van der Velden with naval architecture by Stolk Marimecs. The Explorer 114 is above all a seaworthy vessel, with a seakindly hullform featuring pronounced forward sheer. Her round-bilge steel hull has smaller, more closely spaced frames forward and reinforced shell plating at the bow, earning her a Lloyd’s Register “Ice Class” certificate. Dynamic stabilization and bilge keels assure comfort in all conditions and at anchor.
