Moonen launches first 110

Dutch builder Moonen Yachts has launched the first of its Moonen 110 models, which is available for purchase with delivery at the end of May 2023.

With a 34-metre length overall and a range of 3,500 nautical miles at 9 knots – easily enough to slip away from the European winter for a transatlantic sojourn in the Caribbean – Moonen’s latest launch, the first Moonen 110, is a tempting proposition for any serious cruiser.

Indeed, the builder’s reputation for building sturdy, stylish and superyacht-quality motor yachts means these sleek but hardy vessels are at home anywhere, including around Australia’s wilder coasts. That probably explains why the brand has such a following in Australia (and, of course, the yard is now Australian-owned).

“The launch exactly on schedule marks a proud moment for everyone who has worked on the Moonen 110,” says Moonen Yachts Commercial Director Victor Caminada.

“Her construction has progressed precisely as planned. She is a timeless beauty that exemplifies Dutch design excellence. We’re very happy with her elegant blue hull. She looks perfect in the water.”


The steel-hulled, aluminium superstructure yacht, which is a perfect blend of Moonen DNA in tradition and modernity, is also currently for sale at €17 million ex VAT (AU$27.9 million) for any owners who fancy getting their hands on one ahead of the curve. Indeed, she will be available for delivery on 31 May, ready to enjoy this summer and making her perfect for an owner looking to get straight to cruising.

The new Moonen 110 recaptures the impeccable quality and proven ocean-going performance of past generations of Moonen yachts. The shipyard’s long-standing design partner, René van der Velden, created the exteriors. The new design, says Moonen, is a modern interpretation of the yard’s legendary Moonen 84 and Moonen 97 designs.

The naval architecture and engineering were completed by Diana Yacht Design, another strong Dutch yacht-building partner. The Moonen 110 offers more space, future-proof technology and more economical operation, with consumption as low as 60 litres per hour at 9 knots.

The large, 72-square-metre top deck is not only a remarkably generous entertaining space with sun and shade, but also accommodates a tender up to 7.5 metres in length – essentially for being able to enjoy more adventurous cruising locations.

“The Moonen 110 is a modern design with the Moonen quality that our owners love,” Caminada continues. “When you are standing in the forward-facing owner stateroom, you can see how magnificent it is with sweeping 180-degree panoramic views.

“You can also feel the exceptional quality because the space is so quiet and comfortable.”

“When the yacht is at anchor with the generator running, the owner stateroom will have a noise level of just 43dB(A),” Caminada adds. “That’s only achievable with precision engineering and very high-quality craftsmanship.”

The yacht features a maximum draft of 2 metres, with a beam of 7.5 metres, and can accommodate up to 10 guests who will be ably served by up to five crew. The yacht boasts an interior volume of 256 gross tons.

London-based Studio Indigo completed the interior design. The studio’s designers drew on the vintage 1980 layouts of Moonen yachts to create a modern concept with a subtle nod to Moonen’s heritage.

Following the launch at the start of April, Moonen’s in-house technical and interior teams are completing her outfitting together with specialist suppliers and subcontractors.
