First Moonen motor yacht Alhena sold

First Moonen motor yacht Alhena sold

The petite 21 metre canoe stern motor yacht Alhena has been sold with Van der Vliet Quality Yachts acting for the buyer and seller.

The news gains an extra significance when one learns that this was the first ever yacht built at Dutch yard Moonen. Built in steel to a design by A. Volker, she was delivered in 1983 and has many refits since, the latest being in 2012/2013. In addition, in 2001 the entire hull and superstructure were sandblasted and repainted.

A cosy interior in varnished teak accommodates eight guests in four cabins consisting of a master suite, two twin cabins sharing an en suite shower facility and a further en suite twin aft.

The open saloon has a leather settee and armchair in front of an entertainment centre with a satellite television and there is a dining area forward. Sliding stainless steel and glass doors lead to the aft deck with deck chairs, a table and a stainless steel ladder down to the swim platform.

The large sun deck offers ample outdoor relaxation on sun pads and also serves as storage space for the yacht’s tenders while the flybridge comes with two helm stations in front of a pair of built in sofas. The radar arch can be hydraulically lowered for more headroom when cruising under bridges – a nice touch.

Worthy of note is the fact that Alhena was the predecessor of Moonen’s famed 85’ series of long range motor yachts and she can easily be handled by two people.

Twin 265hp Volvo diesel engines give her a range of 1,250 nautical miles at her cruising speed of 7.5 knots.

Alhena was asking €495,000 and is the third Moonen motor yacht sold this year by Van der Vliet.
