Heesen yacht Amigo returns to Moonen for winter check-up

The 30 metre Heesen motor yacht Amigo has returned to Moonen for her fourth winter check-up at the Dutch yard.

Launched in 2003 and refitted by Moonen in 2011, Amigo has regularly returned to the ‘s-Hertogenbosch facility. Her latest stint will last six weeks and will include regular maintenance work, hull checks, exterior paint retouching and antifouling treatment. This will culminate in Amigo achieving her CBB certificate — which all yachts over 20 metres cruising the rivers and canals of the Netherlands and Northern Europe will have to comply with by the end of 2018.

Jan Tielemans, service manager at Moonen, said: “It is important for the client that the work be done at a highly regarded Dutch yard, not least to preserve her resale value.

“We can already tell that the work we did last time has held up well,” he added. “Fortunately, the owner is a real boatman, and sails her a lot throughout the season.”

Styled inside and out by Pieter Beeldsnijder, Amigo can accommodate up to ten guests in five cabins with a crew of three people. Power comes from a pair of 2,000hp MTU 16V2000 M91 diesel engines for a top speed of 25 knots and comfortable cruising at 21 knots. When trimmed back to her economic speed of 12 knots, Amigo boasts a range of 1,800 nautical miles.

Other superyacht projects currently under development at Moonen include the 36.3 metre Project Martinique, which is due to hit the water next year.
