Moonen Shipyards Unveils Scaled-Down Semi-Series

  • Claire Lewin

The Dutch yacht company Moonen Shipyards has teamed up with the all-star designer Nick Mezas to create a series of smaller motor yachts ranging from 59 to 79 feet. The announcement came shortly after the company built its largest superyacht to date, the 138-foot Sofia. The semi-series comprises the 59-foot Ibiza (which is estimated at $3.4 million), the 66-footMenorca, (about $4.7 million), and the 79-foot Mallorca(estimated at $6 million).

Despite the smaller size, the yachts will still uphold all of the Moonen essentials, such as fuel savings, low noise and vibration levels, and comfort, including ample space for three to four roomy cabins and an open-plan layout in the saloon and wheelhouse. The Ibiza is outfitted with a Volvo Penta IPS with a top speed of 18 knots, the Menorca with a MAN 788 hp with a top speed of 20 knots, and the Mallorca with a MAN 887 kW with a top speed of 22 knots.
