History

A wealth of experience

Moonen Shipyards is one of the world’s foremost builders of motoryachts between 65 and 150 ft. Located in the medieval Dutch town of Den Bosch (‘s-Hertogenbosch), the first yacht to be built by what is today called the Moonen yard was launched in 1963. Gaining a reputation for quality and service, Moonen soon grew in sophistication and expanded its client base first across continental Europe and then much further afield – in fact to wherever connoisseurs of fine yachting reside.

Covering every option

Moonen has now delivered a global fleet of yachts to major critical acclaim, winning many prestigious awards. We can offer you a fully customised superyacht, a custom series displacement yacht, an explorer vessel or a fast displacement all-aluminium powerboat. This diversity of talent is unique in the upper echelons of the superyacht industry.

Opening a second yard

Responding to a growing demand for increasingly large yachts, in December 2008 we opened a second yard in Groot-Ammers, some 50 km from the ‘home-base’ in Den Bosch (’s-Hertogenbosch). A state-of-the-art 60-metre hall is used to build yachts up to 45 metres (150 feet). The existing facility in Den Bosch continues to build yachts under 35 metres (115 feet) and perform design, engineering and interior joinery for the full Moonen line.
