Moonen 85 motor yacht Jumbo sold

30 August 2023 • Written by Dea Jusufi

The 25.7-metre motor yacht Jumbo has been sold in an in house deal by Van der Vliet Dutch Quality Yachts. She was the fourth unit in Moonen Yacht's "pocket superyacht" series, Moonen 85.

Designed by Diana Yacht Design, Jumbo was delivered in 1991 under the name Marlee Queen. She was eventually sold to the Dutch Royal Family and was primarily owned by the late Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands, who named her Jumbo VI after his love of elephants and nature conservation (he was the co-founder of the World Wildlife Fund).

The motor yacht has undergone regular maintenance to keep her shipshape, including a refit with repair yard Kees van den Hoek that saw almost all technical systems replaced, interiors modified to appear more spacious and on-deck tender storage added.

Accommodation is for eight guests in four cabins consisting of a master suite and three twins, all with en suite facilities. Interiors were completed in-house, with varnished wood panelling and cream-coloured furniture cultivating Jumbo's classic, traditional feel. The open-plan main saloon features a formal dining area alongside a lounge space and entertainment system aft. 

The sun deck is the main convivial area, arranged with fixed sun pads and U-shaped sofa seating for casual, al fresco dining. It is also fitted with sea-safe railings and a Bimini top that provides shade to the entire deck.

The yacht is powered by a pair of 409hp MTU 12V engines.

Jumbo's asking price was on application.
