Moonen’s biggest ever...

Industry News

The contract has been signed for YN194 'Sofia III', a 133ft long-range trideck.

JUNE 2010

The René van der Velden styling of this one is perhaps best described as elegant explorer.
She’s for a repeat client that has already owned a Moonen 84 and a 97. When launched in 2012 she may well be the smallest superyacht to carry a two-man submarine capable of submerging to 100m (330ft).
The engineering work for YN194 has already begun at Stolk Marimecs.
