ETOILE D’AZUR is the seventh superyacht in the famous Moonen 84 series, eight of which have been built in total between 2000 and 2008. She is also one of the most evolved yachts in this range, popular for a timeless design, exceptional comfort and safety at sea.
Like all Moonen yachts, ETOILE D’AZUR has a highly efficient roundbilge steel hull that ensures very low fuel consumption at cruising speed. This also gives her a transatlantic cruise capacity, something ETOILE D’AZUR has proven twice in practice. Her extraordinarily low noise and vibration levels make every extended cruise a true pleasure. The electric zero speed stabilizers are nearly silent in operation.
ETOILE D’AZUR had an extensive refit in 2013 at the Moonen yard in the Netherlands, the highlights of which included an extension of the flybridge deck to create a huge 22m2/236ft2 sundeck.
The installation of a CMC zerospeed stabilizing system maximized her comfort levels at anchor while other userfriendly enhancements were made to the entertainment system, teak deck,swim platform and airconditioning. A wide range of technical upgrades and overhauls also took place to ensure that ETOILE D’AZUR was quite literally better than new.
In summary, ETOILE D’AZUR is the best Moonen 84 and her impressive track record ranks her among the finest displacement yacht available anywhere in this size today.
