For the first time since the joining of her hull and superstructure, 38-metre Moonen Martinique, YN201 has been towed out of the outfitting shed at Moonen Yachts in Den Bosch.
Due for delivery to her owners in early 2023, YN201 is the fourth hull to be built on the Moonen Martinique platform and the first of two Moonen Martinique’s currently in build at the superyacht builder’s shipyard. Both superyachts were sold earlier this year.
The 38-metre steel aluminium superyacht is the first of the Martinique’s to feature an anthracite hull and a fully integrated hydraulic swim platform at the owner’s request.
Last week marked the first time she was viewed in the daylight.
Originally a 36-metre design, the 1.5-metre extension to the swim platform also came at the owner’s request. She therefore had to be towed out of the shed and realigned to allow for the extension to be built.
Arkitekter was introduced to the project by the owner and will create a beautifully balanced and fully customised Scandinavian design.
“Having looked at multiple shipyards and what they had to offer, the choice to choose Moonen was simple,” said YN201’s owner.
“A beautiful boat with very high build quality, smart design and layout. Add to that a great team and the decision was easy. I can’t wait to see the final product.”
A2B Marine Projects is heading up the owner’s team with Christian Poorte as the owners representative.
