Moonen reveals two new designs Moonen Shipyards in the Netherlands has released details of two impressive new designs created for owners looking for a contemporary approach within the award-winning Moonen quality template. Rene van der Velden has drawn the modern lines of the 100-foot raised pilot house design while Nick Mezas is responsible for a new fast displacement concept that is being offered in three lengths between 18 and 24 meters. The Moonen 100 raised pilot house by Rene van der Velden features an owners stateroom on the main deck, with extra space in the beam thanks to the narrow walkways forward, which are now only intended for crew members to use. Elsewhere the yacht has the most economic layout possible for a boat of the size. "The challenge with a raised pilothouse configuration is that it can take a lot of space away from the flybridge," continues Bilterijst. "To counteract this we have placed the tenders in a stern garage from where they will be launched by slipway rather than an overhead crane. This yacht is an ideal option for an owner looking for a more modern aesthetic within a clearly identifiable Moonen style of gentlemen's yacht."
