Shipyards Moonen

Moonen Yachts, a Dutch boutique shipyard, is dedicated to delivering exclusive and exceptional superyachts in the 34 to 45-metre size range. With a focus on upholding the finest tradition of Dutch yacht building, Moonen Yachts ensures an exclusive ownership experience by delivering only two yachts per year.

With over 40 years of expertise in yacht construction, they have established a reputation for building top-quality long-range yachts with steel hulls and aluminium superstructures. Having delivered over 80 yachts worldwide, including renowned classics like the Moonen 84 and Moonen 97, as well as the modern Moonen Martinique, their craftsmanship and attention to detail is widely recognised.

Moonen Yachts’ passion lies in delivering exceptional yachts, providing excellent support and ensuring every detail is of the highest quality. Acquired by yachting enthusiasts Matthew and Louise Baxter in 2019, the shipyard is backed with solid financial support and a commitment to impeccable deliveries and strong customer relationships.


The shipyard proudly produces what they refer to as ‘pocket-size superyachts’, specialising in private motor yachts between 34 to 45 metres. From full displacement cruisers to fast, semi-displacement yachts, transoceanic explorers and more – their clear-cut aesthetic and high-quality finish ensure every yacht bears a distinct family resemblance.


Despite their more petite structure, Moonen yachts are remarkably spacious, with ample outdoor areas to relax and spacious staterooms for you and your guests. Their designs generally favour more sleek, classic aesthetics – providing the yacht with a luxury, exclusive air with a modern twist.

Across their fleet, you can expect to see chic interiors, modern styling and large outdoor spaces for you and your guests to gather and enjoy the panoramic ocean views.


Whilst many of the shipyard’s yachts feature similar characteristics, the high quality finish and elegant design leave little to be desired. Perhaps one of their more noteworthy yachts would be the 42m SOFIA, with exterior styling by René van der Velden and a chic contemporary interior by Art-line Interiors. But the feature that makes her stand out from the crowd is her yellow three-person submarine on the swim platform – something that attracted lots of attention from prospective buyers.
