Moonen Launches First Mega Yacht With Fully High-Tensile Steel Hull: Dutch shipyard Moonen has launched a new 36-meter mega yacht named Brigadoon, notable because it’s the large first vessel to feature a hull made complete with high-tensile steel.
High-tensile steel hulled yachts offer quick turns of speed and significantly better fuel efficiency, while fulfills the brand philosophy of performance and comfort at sea.
Brigadoon is part of the Moonen Caribbean series. She features styling by Rene van der Velden and a hull design by Diana Yacht Design. The hull also has a relatively shallow 2.1-meter draft. She has a long range of 4,000 nautical miles under Caterpillar power at several knots slower than her anticipated 17-knot top speed.
The owners plan to spend two full months onboard this summer. Her amenities include a full-beam master suite, forward on the main deck. It has forward-facing ports for panoramic views. The aft relaxation area, also on the main deck, has low bulwarks for an aesthetic connection with the swim platform. The bridge-deck lounge has sliding windows to open the interior for fresh breezes to flow through. The teak soles inside create their own aesthetic connection to the alfresco portion of the deck.
Brigadoon will make her public debut at the Cannes Yachting Festival later this year, following by an appearance in Monaco.
In the meantime, Moonen has already begun a sister ship on spec and is soliciting interior designs from several studios, including ones it hasn’t collaborated with previously. The builder is also working on a number of new mega yacht designs that are not part of the Caribbean series and is actively pursuing new, fully custom styling and layout options within its size focus of 30 to 50 meters.
