Last week the Moonen Yachts team proudly welcomed the owners of MOONSHINE for the christening and launch of their new 36.3m Martinique (119ft) in The Netherlands.

The newly christened MOONSHINE is yard number YN204, the sixth Martinique from Moonen’s successful fast displacement steel hull design.

Following her delivery before the summer season, MOONSHINE will spend this year cruising the Mediterranean and the Caribbean before reaching her new home in San Diego, California.


We completed a number of customisations for the owners to suit their tastes and how they intended to use the yacht – including changing the length of the yacht to fit a specific location where they plan to keep the yacht.

The owners also specified a rich and characterful interior design in collaboration with the team at Hollander Yacht Design, a Dutch studio working on their first project with Moonen Yachts.


The award-winning Martinique exterior design by Dutch designer René van der Velden allows natural light in, offers spectacular views out, and creates seamless indoor-outdoor connections.

The steel and aluminium Martinique has a maximum speed of 17 knots thanks to her fast displacement naval architecture, plus long-range transatlantic capability. The Martinique is exceptionally comfortable, spacious, quiet and stable with a surprising interior volume at 345 Gross Tonnage.
